We’ve already shared with you gobs of information about the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, including its engines, trim levels and pricing, unibody structure, rear exhaust treatments and dimensions. But what we haven’t yet considered is how Chevy’s upcoming midsize crossover SUV stacks up from a size standpoint to other GM crossover models, particularly the compact Chevrolet Eqinox, Chevrolet Traverse, Cadillac XT5, and GMC Acadia. For good measure, we also threw in the Chevy FNR-CarryAll Concept. For the sake of sanity, we will refer to the FNR-CarryAll as the three-row Blazer concept going forward.
|2019 Chevrolet Equinox||2019 Chevrolet Blazer||2019 Cadillac XT5||2019 GMC Acadia||Chevrolet FNR-CarryAll Concept||2019 Chevrolet Traverse|
|Wheelbase (in / mm):||107.3 / 2725||112.7 / 2863||112.5 / 2858||112.5 / 2858||112.87 / 2867||120.9 / 3071|

What we see is that the Blazer’s 112.7-inch wheelbase is nearly identical to that of the XT5, Acadia and three-row Blazer concept. In fact, we have reason to believe that the differences in wheelbase measurements between the three models – all of which share the same short-wheelbase GM C1 platform – is the result of different rounding methods, rather than actual differences in wheelbase length. Meanwhile, the Chevy Traverse – which rides on the extended-length C1 platform, which enables the vehicle to be an entire size class above the aforementioned models – has a notably longer wheelbase measuring nearly 121 inches.
The Blazer’s 191.4 inch overall length is slightly longer than that of the XT5 (189.5 inches), a difference enabled by different styling of the front and rear clips. Meanwhile, the 2019 Blazer is shorter than the three-row Acadia (193.6 inches), and the three-row Blazer (196 inches). Of course, all four models are shorter than the gargantuan Traverse (204.3 inches).
