Chevrolet Blazer Gets One Last Update Before Going Electric

Reveal / 12 Comments

The changes for the 2023 model look pretty good.

Chevrolet made two huge reveals during this year's Consumer Electronics Show: both the Equinox and Blazer will go all-electric, though this change will not happen right away. The Blazer will go electric for the 2024 model year but before it does, the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer is getting a facelift with an updated front fascia, a new grille, and sleeker LED headlights and taillights.

Chevy also redesigned the wheels, which range from 18 to 21 inches. Five new colors join the available pallet for 2023, including Fountain Blue, Sterling Gray Metallic, Copper Bronze Metallic and Radiant Red Tintcoat (pictured below in RS trim).

Under the hood, there's a choice of either a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 228 horsepower or a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp. Both units carry over from last year's model and continue to route power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-liter engine comes standard on the LT, 2LT, 3LT, and Premier trims, while the 3.6-liter V6 is only standard on the RS (available on the 3LT and Premier).

Inside, the Chevrolet Infotainment System now comes with a 10-inch screen as standard, replacing the smaller eight-inch unit from last year. Wireless charging is now available on all trims (standard on RS and Premier) as is an available 4G LTE WiFi hotspot with a 3GB or one-month data trial. The rest of the interior is similar to last year's model, though there is a new Nightshift Blue option for the RS trim (not pictured).

Though this update isn't the huge Blazer EV announcement we were hoping to see, Chevy did address one of the current Blazer's most glaring issues: a lack of standard safety equipment. Chevy previously locked important safety features like adaptive cruise control on upper Blazer trim levels. For the 2023 model year, Chevy Safety Assist is now standard on all trim levels. This bundles automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning and intelligent high beams. Adaptive cruise is still not standard, but is available on all but the base trim for 2023.

The refreshed 2023 Blazer will go on sale this summer.
