I think the Jeep is quite heavier than the blazer as well. Weight makes a big difference, even with a V8 under the hood. It's also a pretty weak V8. Chrysler hasn't done much to massage any power out of it.
I might add though that it does have pretty decent power above 3000RPM. Try starting from a stop in 1st gear and accelerating to about 4000, then shift into 2nd. It's suddenly a lot more powerful. Personally I'm greatful that the automatic tranny doesn't have a very aggressive shift pattern. Imagine how bad the gas mileage would be then?
