• Lingenfelter May Have Just Made the Chevy Blazer Desirable - Maybe

Lingenfelter is here with a supercharger kit to make your Blazer ownership a little more exciting

Indiana-based Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, known for its GM builds, has come up with a package for the Blazer that turns it into a powerful SUV. It includes the supercharger that adds almost 150 horses to the V-6’s stock power output. There are some exterior mods as well, but they are quite subtle and won’t look suspiciously different in a crowd. It’s still no performance SUV, but it will make the Blazer look a little more desirable.

We’re Talking About 400+ Horses Here

The Blazer is offered with three different engine options, two of which are four-pot mills and one is a V-6. Lingenfelter has opted for the latter, which displaces 3.6 liters and makes 308 ponies and 270 pound-feet of twist. Power is sent to all the wheels via a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

The tuner has plonked in an Edelbrock supercharger under the hood along with a high-efficiency intercooler.

Courtesy of this, the power outputs are increased by almost 40-percent, which means we’re looking at somewhere around 431 horses and 378 pound-feet of torque.

We’re yet to hear about the exact figures and if any changes are made to the transmission.

On the outside, there are barely any significant changes, at least from what we can see in the pictures. There are some Lingenfelter badges and ‘S’ stickers around the body, but the rest of it seems pretty much the same. Wider tires would’ve been welcome and probably some changes to the ride height too, but this seems to be a power-bump package only. This is the same package that the tuner sells for the Colorado and the Canyon trucks.

The other two engine options on the Blazer are a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that dishes out 193 horses and 188 pound-feet of torque, and a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged mill that makes 227 ponies and 258 pound-feet of torque. Both of these are also paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

How Much Does It Cost?

There’s no word on the pricing of the kit, but the supercharger kit on the Colorado and the Canyon costs $6,995. If you think you can install it on your own, then you can opt for the DIY kit that doesn’t include installation for $5,500. The 2021 Chevy Blazer starts at $29,995, but the cheapest V-6 model you can buy will cost you $34,795. Chevy is running some discounts to the tune of over $3,000 at the time of writing. So, equipped with the Lingenfelter supercharger kit, your new Blazer V-6 should cost you under $40,000.

On a side note, we could see a full-performance kit being offered sometime in the future, like the one Lingenfelter offers for the Colorado ZR2 called the ZR2-L package. This includes stuff like a 1.5-inch lift kit, performance wheels and tires, LED trail lights, badges, graphics, and some tweaks to the cabin. The tuner charges $15,500 for this package on the truck.
