The Chevrolet Blazer combines eye-catching design and a thrilling performance in a mid-sized SUV. Although it is more expensive than other models and not an off-roader but it is great at moving families with fashion.
The Blazer is the largest as well as most potent five-passenger vehicle located in between the 3-row Chevrolet Traverse along with the more modest and economical Chevrolet Equinox. The sporty exterior and distinct interior, which took its design inspiration to its predecessor, the Chevrolet Camaro, help it to stand out from an ocean of conservatively designed crossovers, like those like the Honda Passport and the Ford Edge. Its sharp performance is in sync with its muscular design.
A turbocharged, powerful four-cylinder engine is the standard. However, our favorite engine is the 308-horsepower V6 option that provides a strong acceleration and boosts towing capacity of up to 4,500 pounds. Both engines are not particularly fuel efficient however. The Blazer is priced higher than other models that have similar features like those in the Hyundai Santa Fe. However, its stylish appearance and energetic personality justify the price.
Trims and Pricing
In 2022, the Chevrolet Blazer is available in four trim levels: 2LT 3LT, RS and the Premier. The optional features included in the Blazer include adaptive cruise control and wireless phone charging. an surround-view camera, as well as LED headlights. The 2LT is the most popular option, and it’s also our choice for the most affordable price.
The Blazer 2LT’s price of $34,595 is our top pick in terms of value, considering that it’s the cheapest model that is available with a V6 engine as well as the all-wheel-drive system. Additionally, it comes with Chevrolet’s Safety Assist package with forward-collision warning, automatic emergency brake and lane-keeping aid. Other features that are standard features include alloy wheels of 18 inches as well as cloth upholstery and a driver’s seat with heated side mirrors as well as keyless ignition and entry and dual-zone climate control cruise control, six-speaker sound system and a touchscreen with 8 inches, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Standard safety features are an advantage, however customers will need to shell out extra money for luxury features like heated seats.
For $38,795 For $38,795, the 3LT includes a variety of additional features that make the Blazer feel a lot more lavish. It has blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts, back parking sensors powered liftgate leather upholstery, heated front seats that have power adjustment and a remote engine starter and garage door opener as well as an automated rearview mirror.
The price of $42,295, the RS isn’t cheap, but it has a tuned suspension for better control and more aggressive trim on the exterior to give it a more sporty appearance. Its RS Trim is among the most athletic Blazer equipped with black 20-inch wheels with black exterior accents and a power liftgate that is hands-free and a heated steering wheel and an integrated navigation system. A RS equipped with the V6 engine with all-wheel drive can be enjoyable to drive.
Its Blazer Premier is the most expensive trim available, costing $42,295. It features exterior accents that are color-keyed with unique wheels, the front seat is cooled and heated heated rear seats as well as memories for both the seat of the driver’s seat and the mirrors on both sides as well as the Bose high-end audio system.
Engine and Performance
The Chevrolet Blazer comes standard with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder motor, an efficient nine-speed auto transmission and front-wheel drive. Its horsepower is 227. the engine’s power is adequate to get you through the day, but it’s lacking the punch suggested by the car’s sleek appearance. We recommend upgrading to the 308-hp option, which is an optional 3.6-liter V6. The engine is able to be combined to an all-wheel drive. However, the V6 is what makes the Blazer more enjoyable to drive than many crossovers in this category because it comes with excellent control and power as well as a solid brake performance and an athletic and responsive handling. Contrary to Jeep Grand Cherokee and Honda Passport it isn’t a true off-road vehicle. Blazer isn’t designed for off-roading, even though it has all-wheel drive. It is, however, a great choice on the highway as well as in cities It’s extremely easily maneuverable and parking is easy.
The interior of the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer’s design is distinct from the other Chevy family haulers. Inspired by the Chevrolet Camaro, the Blazer’s dashboard is unique and visually striking, which adds its youthful look. The Blazer does not feel like a typical family vehicle but all of the functions are user-friendly and well laid out. We love the innovative round air vents that turn to alter the flow of air. The less expensive Blazers are filled with hard plastic, while the models with higher trim levels feature leather upholstery and upscale materials. The front seats in the Blazer are spacious and comfortable. There’s plenty of room for passengers for the back row and plenty of space for personal items to be stored.
