The fresh new 2022 Chevy Blazer will get some serious upgrades. This model comes with an more attractive face, making it arguably the most assertive-looking mid-size crossover in its class. On top of that, it sports a very spacious cabin that continues to be inspired by Chevy’s iconic muscle car, the Camaro.
Besides exterior and interior upgrades, most of the changes will happen under the hood of this SUV. Basically, the forthcoming model will come standard with a turbo 2.0 four-cylinder that replaces a previously 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Sure, the manufacturer also offers a thunderous 3.6-liter V-6 optionally, providing a much stronger output.
2022 Chevy Blazer Facelift
The bow tie company will make the 2022 Chevy Blazer more attractive than ever. However, don’t expect any significant changes because Blazer will only get minor upgrades. First of all, even without the sportier setup found on the RS, the regular variant looks sporty enough to compete with many rivals.
This model features a recognized Camaro design with a big grille and slim LED headlights. It also comes with standard attractive 18-inch wheels, offering more smoother and quieter ride than the RS model that wore large 21-inches. Visually, the Chevy Blazer is arguably the most assertive-looking mid-size crossover in its class.
Like before, the 2022 Chevy Blazer inside is inspired by the famous Chevy Camaro. Moreover, the new SUV features two rows of seats providing enough room to fit five passengers. All seats offer excellent support with plenty of stretch-out space, which is vital for long trips. According to Chevy, there are 31 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 64 with folded seats. Also, the manufacturer recently confirmed that it’d no longer offer a base L trim. So, expect the 2LT to represent the entry-level model.
In terms of technology, every Blazer comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability. In addition, this SUV also can be equipped with an eight-speaker Bose audio system, built-in navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and wireless charging for phones.
