The compact 2024 Equinox EV and midsize 2024 Blazer EV are built using General Motors' versatile Ultium battery platform, providing for a range of powertrain options in each electric SUV. As Chevrolet works to get these EVs on the street, here's an overview of the similarities and differences between the Equinox EV and Blazer EV.

Powertrains And Performance
Most Equinox EV models will have a single motor powering the front wheels, though dual-motor, all-wheel-drive versions will be available. That's also true of the Blazer. However, the Blazer will also have a single-motor RWD option—making it one of the few vehicles in history to offer front-, rear-, and all-wheel-drive setups.

Range And Charging
In base 1LT trim with FWD, the Blazer is estimated to have 247 miles of range, essentially identical to the Equinox's 250-mile estimate. In 2LT trim, FWD Blazer models can cover about 293 miles on a charge, again quite close to the FWD Equinox's 300-mile estimate. Choosing AWD on either of these should bring range to approximately 280 miles. The Blazer ekes out an advantage in maximum range: Its RS trim can cover an estimated 320 miles, likely with its FWD powertrain setup.

Technology And Safety Features
Both the Blazer and Equinox come with an 11.0-inch digital gauge cluster display. The Equinox has an 11.0-inch infotainment touchscreen as standard, and a whopping 17.7-inch unit is available. That big screen is standard on every Blazer model. A head-up display will be offered on each vehicle. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, semi-autonomous parking capability, a surround-view camera system, and a wireless charging pad will be on the options list for the Blazer and Equinox.

Size And Cargo Space
Information on sizing for the Equinox EV and Blazer EV is scant, but we expect both to be about as spacious as an average compact SUV but with a slightly lower seating height. Chevrolet has confirmed that the Equinox EV will not have a frunk, as space under the hood is taken up by its motor and charging hardware. Similar packaging in the Blazer EV will potentially preclude it from having a frunk, as well.

2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV Or 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV?
The huge power of the Blazer EV SS appeals, but even lower trims cost more than the Equinox EV. Smaller expected sizing might make the Equinox EV a little easier to wheel around, but the Blazer EV's greater variety of powertrain options and longer available range could make it more versatile. For now, this much is clear: These two electric SUVs will help Chevrolet build an advantage in the gasoline-free future.
