2022 Blazer Interior

The cabin of the Blazer will feel like home to anyone who has owned a Camaro or taken one for a test drive. With styling drawn heavily from the aforementioned muscle car, the Blazer's interior is laid out with the driver in mind. The controls are all placed well within reach, and the center console creates images of sporty competition like BMWs of yesteryear. While the lower trims are a little more conservatively outfitted, build quality remains good all the way through the range. Not too many hard plastics are on direct display, with most high-traffic surfaces finished in soft-touch materials. However, the Chevrolet Blazer is not perfect, with less interior passenger and storage space than some of its rivals. But the trade-off is, of course, sportier styling. Road noise is very minimal thanks to standard active noise cancellation.

Seating and Interior Space

The midsize crossover has room for five within the cabin, but the stylishly sloping roofline comes at the cost of some headroom for those in the back. Still, there is loads of legroom to go around, and only those with a little giant DNA in their genome should struggle to fit comfortably. Getting in and out is a relatively simple affair, but the lack of headroom means taller folks may have to duck a little. Speccing on the available sunroof further compromises headroom, but it adds a certain level of stylish ambiance. The driver's seat is eight-way electrically adjustable across the board, while seat heating and ventilation can be added along the way, too. Outward visibility is good, and is further enhanced with the addition of blind-spot monitoring technology.

Interior Colors and Materials

The interior of the Chevy is not overly lavish, at least not until you get up to the pricier trims. The 2LT trim gets premium cloth upholstery in a choice of Jet Black or Dark and Light Galvanized combination hues. The 3LT retains the same palette but upgrades to perforated leather upholstery. The RS trim dresses its seats in leather in Jet Black only, although it does add red stitching to the seats, and red trim to several dash elements, such as the air vents. The Premier offers Jet Black (our tester) or a combination Jet Black/Maple Sugar perforated leather. For the most part, the dash and door panels are covered in soft-touch materials and trimmed in aluminum.

2022 Blazer Trunk and Cargo Space

The new Chevy Blazer is certainly fit for purpose as a practical crossover, with 30.5 cubic feet of cargo space provided behind the rear seats. This is more than enough for most daily requirements, but it falls a tad short of some rivals, like the Ford Edge, which presents buyers with a more spacious 39.2 cubic feet. If you do need more room for larger items like camping gear, then you can fold the rear seats down in a 60/40 split to free up a total of 64.2 cubic feet. Of course, this reduces overall passenger capacity to two.

Around the cabin, there is about as much small-item storage as you would expect from a crossover. Each row of seats gets a pair of cupholders, but the four dour pockets are a bit too narrow to service most needs, such as holding water bottles. The center armrest cubby and glove box can hold larger items, but they are not more than average in size.

2022 Blazer Infotainment and Features

Features

The list of standard features certainly is not lacking, even on the 2LT trim. You'll find staples like a rearview camera, keyless entry and push-button start, cruise control, a manually tilting/telescoping steering column, an eight-way electrically adjustable driver's seat, power accessories, a color 4.2-inch driver-information display, and dual-zone climate control with rear-seat air vents. The 3LT adds an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, remote start, and a universal home remote. Standard safety features are comprehensive, even on the base 2LT, and include forward-collision avoidance, a following distance indicator, lane-keep assist, and lane-departure warning. 3LT adds even more safety features, like blind-spot monitoring, lane change alert, rear park assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. The RS expands on this with an eight-inch driver-information center, a 120-volt power outlet, ambient interior lighting, and more optional tech than the lower-level trims get access to. This includes the ventilated front seats and heated rear outboard seats that come standard on the Premier.

Most of these RS options are contained in bundled packages, such as the Driver Confidence II pack found in our tester. For an extra $1,650, buyers will get a rear camera mirror with a washer, wireless phone charging, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, HD surround vision, and upgraded automatic emergency braking.

Infotainment

Chevrolet's patented infotainment suite is remarkably easy to use, and it comes programmed with loads of features even on the base model. Accessed via an eight-inch touchscreen, the system includes Bluetooth, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM, Amazon Alexa, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. The base-level audio setup comprises a six-speaker sound system. You have to upgrade to the RS before anything else changes. This model and the Premier have the Infotainment 3 Plus system which adds navigation to the mix, along with enhanced voice recognition, in-vehicle app capability, the ability to connect two phones at once, and an HD color touchscreen. Two USB data ports and two charging ports come standard, but you can add an extra two along with an SD card reader, and a wireless charging pad via the available packages, as well as an eight-speaker premium Bose audio system.

Our tester further came equipped with the Enhanced Convenience Package for $1,660. For that price, you'll get memory settings for the seats, power tilt and telescopic steering, and an 8-speaker Bose Premium audio system.
