Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer has a score of 82, implying a 0.039% chance of driver death (3.5% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.034%, and the chance of injury falls to 3%.

We estimate that the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0393% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.4905%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0393% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.4905% chance of being injured.

Chevrolet's Chevy Safety Assist active safety features can protect loved ones by preventing accidents and reducing accident severity. There are optional safety features on the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer which may add to the cost but should be strongly considered --- Forward Collision Alert (FCA), Automatic Emergency Braking with Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Monitoring.

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Chevrolet Blazer. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
