In the past twenty years hundreds of infants and young children have died after being left in vehicles, usually by accident. When turning the vehicle off, drivers of the Blazer are reminded to check the back seat if they opened the rear door before starting out. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer a back seat reminder.
Compared to metal, the Blazer’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire. The Land Rover Range Rover Velar has a metal gas tank.
Both the Blazer and the Range Rover Velar have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.
Chevrolet’s powertrain warranty covers the Blazer 1 year and 10,000 miles longer than Land Rover covers the Range Rover Velar. Any repair needed on the engine, transmission, axles, joints or driveshafts is fully covered for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Coverage on the Range Rover Velar ends after only 4 years or 50,000 miles.
There are over 17 times as many Chevrolet dealers as there are Land Rover dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Blazer’s warranty.
J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Chevrolet vehicles are better in initial quality than Land Rover vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Chevrolet 6th in initial quality, above the industry average. With 78 more problems per 100 vehicles, Land Rover is ranked 31st, below the industry average.
J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Chevrolet vehicles are more reliable than Land Rover vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Chevrolet 6th in reliability, above the industry average. With 80 more problems per 100 vehicles, Land Rover is ranked 30th.
The Blazer’s optional 3.6 DOHC V6 produces 58 more horsepower (305 vs. 247) than the Range Rover Velar P250’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.
An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Blazer V6’s fuel efficiency. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.
To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Chevrolet Blazer uses regular unleaded gasoline. The Range Rover Velar requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.
The Blazer FWD’s standard fuel tank has 3.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the Range Rover Velar Diesel’s standard fuel tank (19.4 vs. 15.8 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.
The Blazer has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.
A nine-speed automatic is standard on the Chevrolet Blazer, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only an eight-speed automatic is available for the Range Rover Velar.
The Chevrolet Blazer’s wheels have 6 lugs for longer wheel bearing life, less chance of rotor warping and greater strength. The Land Rover Range Rover Velar only has 5 wheel lugs per wheel.
The Blazer has a standard easy tire fill system. When inflating the tires, the vehicle’s integrated tire pressure sensors keep track of the pressure as the tires fill and tell the driver when the tires are inflated to the proper pressure. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer vehicle monitored tire inflation.
For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Blazer is 1.8 inches wider in the front and .9 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the Range Rover Velar.
The Chevrolet Blazer may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 200 to 250 pounds less than the Land Rover Range Rover Velar.
The front grille of the Blazer uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer active grille shutters.
The Blazer uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.
The Blazer has 1.7 inches more front headroom, .7 inches more front legroom, 1.9 inches more front shoulder room, .6 inches more rear headroom, 2.4 inches more rear legroom and 3 inches more rear shoulder room than the Range Rover Velar.
The Blazer (except L) offers a remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer a remote starting system.
The Blazer (except L) offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.
The Blazer is available in both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. The Range Rover Velar doesn’t offer a two-wheel drive configuration.
