Mach-E vs. Blazer EV: The New Blazer Put a Target on the Mach-E
Chevy has released most of the specs on the new 2024 Blazer EV SUV and they look a lot like those of the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Both of the EV crossover SUVs have starting MSRPs of about $44,000, both have a base range of 247 miles, and can be optioned in trims from luxury to superfast. The Chevy can be ordered in SS trim, while the Mach-E can be ordered for 2023 in GT trim, and both manufacturers claim sub-4 second 0-to-60 mph times. Does a Mach-E vs. Blazer EV decision come down to blue oval vs bowtie?
What’s similar in a Mach-E vs Blazer EV comparison?
The 2024 Chevy Blazer details were released this week and it looks like Chevy benchmarked the Mach-E SUV pretty closely. And why not? The Mach E is a sales leader for Ford.

The Chevy has optional 21-inch wheels, a heated flat-bottom steering wheel, a power hands-free liftgate, and a 17.7-inch touchscreen. The Ford has a power liftgate, too, as well as a 15.5-inch touchscreen.

What trims do the Mach-E and Blazer EV come in?
The 2022 Mustang Mach-E can be ordered in five different flavors. The Select is the base SUV, and it can be ordered in rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. From there, the Premium, California Route 1, GT and GT Performance Editions round out the Mach-E lines. Each version gets a price increase, but also a features, range, and speed increase.
The new 2024 Blazer EV will come in four trim levels, the base 1LT to the SS, closely mirroring the Mach-E. To get all-wheel drive, you have to step up to the 2LT version of the Chevy and to get the long-range battery back, you’ll have to order an RS, which has a lower stance.
