Located in Cleveland, GA
Also serving Buford and Gainesville
After a two-decade absence, the Ford Bronco returns with lots of fanfare. It’s still an off-road-oriented SUV, and it can tackle the most challenging terrains. On the other hand, the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer bears little resemblance to the model that bore this name in decades gone by. It’s now more of a family-friendly mid-size, and it doesn’t measure up to the Bronco in the areas of the rugged build, engine power, and interior comfort.

Horsepower, 2.5-L 4-Cylinder Engine
The 2021 Ford Bronco is built to handle the off-road. It’s available in both two-door and four-door designs, and both are built onto a solid chassis and frame. One of the coolest features is the hydraulic front stabilizer bar disconnect system. The bar can be disconnected to level the vehicle when the driver encounters a situation where all four wheels are not touching the ground due to uneven terrain. This model comes with off-road, all-terrain tires as standard. The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer was, in years past, a rugged Jeep-like vehicle, but those days are long gone. It now rides as a commuter or highway hauler, and it doesn’t have the robust build or off-road capability that the Bronco brings to the table.
The 2021 Ford Bronco base engine is a turbocharged 2.3L that puts out a total of 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The four-door version can be purchased with a more powerful engine, a turbocharged 2.7L V6 that makes 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. A manual transmission is offered on the base trim only. Optional on this trim and standard on the others is a 10-speed automatic transmission. Regardless of trim or cab style, every Bronco comes with a two-speed transfer case. The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer base trim comes with a somewhat underpowered four-cylinder engine that puts out only 193 horsepower. The 2LT trim gets a slightly more powerful engine, a turbocharged 230-horsepower job, and the costly RS model must be purchased to get the bigger V6 with its 308 horsepower. All-wheel drive isn’t available on the two entry-level trims.
Everything about the 2021 Ford Bronco’s interior is excitingly retro. The dashboard is broad and horizontal, the buttons and knobs are large and easy to use, and grab handles can be found throughout the cabin. These handles are also easily removable! The doors are also removable, and when they’re pulled out, the result is a truly open-air feel. The Bronco can even be purchased with floor drains. After a day of spinning through sand and gravel, the Bronco can be hosed out with ease. The control buttons and switches are sealed to prevent water intrusion and short-circuiting. Even though the interior is designed to bring the past alive, the advanced high-tech isn’t missing. The Bronco can be purchased with smartphone app integration, the Sync 4 infotainment system, and navigation with trail and off-road route suggestions. The 2021 Blazer has a nice interior, but the rear seating area is cramped. It also has less cargo area than other similar mid-size SUVs.
