Most of the 2019 models from every major automaker have been released and hit dealerships nationwide in the U.S. There are so many new models though, each claiming to be better than ever, that it can be hard to keep track. This is especially true of the competitive midsize SUV class as it sees new models that are better every year. But which ones actually live up to the hype?
We at Hesser Toyota believe that each Toyota model offers the best value in its class and can take on any competitor head-to-head. To prove that, we’re going to compare the new 2019 Toyota 4Runner with the brand-new and returning 2019 Chevy Blazer. The 2019 Chevy Blazer has seen a lot of excitement for its release, but how does it hold up against the likes of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner? We’re going to answer that by comparing the two model's performance, interior space and features. Note that we’re comparing the base trims for both models. Let’s see who comes out on top!

As you can see from our table, both 2019 midsize models have a lot to offer drivers in the class. The 2019 Chevy Blazer is certainly a worthy competitor in the crowded segment and offers much in the way of value for drivers. However, when compared with the 2019 Toyota 4Runner, the Toyota model clearly shows itself to be the superior SUV.
In terms of performance, the 2019 Chevy Blazer can’t even come close to the kind of raw power that the 2019 Toyota 4Runner has to offer. The 2019 4Runner offers significantly more horsepower and torque than the 2019 Blazer, which also leads to it having the higher maximum towing capacity, 5,000 to 1,500 pounds. If you want performance, the 2019 4Runner is the way to go!
But it’s not all about performance with SUVs, it’s also about the interior. But once again, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner outdoes the 2019 Chevy Blazer by offering a substantially larger interior cargo volume. If space is a primary concern for you, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner should be at the top of your list. And finally, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner also has more available and standard features to offer, evidenced by it offering an available navigation system that is not even available on the 2019 Blazer.
