Here at Weelborg Chevrolet dealership, we are excited to announce the new 2022 model line-up. If you do not see your vehicle in our new inventory, please reach out to our team to speak with a Chevy dealer Glencoe expert for more information. 

Overview

A mid-sized, two-row SUV, the 2022 Chevy Blazer will please those who enjoy driving but want a vehicle that’s out of the ordinary. With a commodious amount of cargo space in addition to superb handling, the 2022 Chevy Blazer is an SUV that stands out on the open road. 

Its maneuverability, braking system, and overall riding experience put it in a league of its own. Moreover, it offers FWD as well as either a 308-hp V-6 or a 228-hp turbo 4. Each engine comes as standard equipment with AWD. However, the V-6’s fast-paced acceleration capability in addition to its 4500 lb towing capacity makes it the more preferable option between the two. 

What's Expected for 2022?

For the 2022 model lineup, Chevy provides restoration to the Blazer that allows this mid-size SUV to appear even more sophisticated and distinct. The improvements apply mainly to its front, with a novel grille and new lighting components. On the back end,  the taillights are also bestowed with a new appearance and there's a group of newly developed wheels, 18 to 21 inches in size.

The Blazer’s exterior is also revamped in terms of pigmentation. Additive paint colors such as Sterling Gray, Fountain Blue, Copper Bronze, and more are now readily available for the RS model.

Cost and Which Trim to Purchase

The 3LT trim is highly suggested as it possesses the V-6 engine alternative, which enhances the peak hauling ability from 3500 to 4500 lbs when armed with the proper towing resources (trailer, hitch, etc). AWD is accessible for an additional $2700. In regards to price, on the lower end of the spectrum – the 2LT model – you can expect to pay an estimated $35,000. And on the other end, the Primer model is estimated at $43,000.

Engine, Performance, and Transmission

The Blazer offers a conventional 228-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a discretionary 308-hp 3.6-liter V-6. Each pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission as well as FWD or AWD. The front-drive, turbo-four variation has ample power for traversing through town as well as highway responsibility. But, the V-6 provides exceptional acceleration and offers additional self-assuredness when cruising on the freeway.

The four-cylinder can haul as much as 1500 pounds, but the V-6 variation can manage as much as 4500 pounds. With steadfast self-control and precise maneuverability, the Blazer is – without effort – the ideal-driving crossover. It offers confidence and responsiveness on winding roads, particularly the RS trim, which has dedicated steering and suspension regulation. 

Even in the absence of the more athletic setup on the RS trim, the Blazer is a more attractive option relative to its many rivals. Its conventional 18-inch wheel-and-tire combo offers a well-ordered and silent ride when compared to the RS trim that sported big 21-inch wheels, which thumped and clonked over uneven terrain.

Fortunately, both of the trims are quiet on leveled surfaces as well as at accelerated highway speeds. The steering's accurate response is satisfying while going on lively trips and also smooth at slower paces. 

Real-World MPG and Fuel Economy

The Blazer with the conventional turbo-four is ranked at up to 22 mpg city, as well as 29 on the highway. The V-6 variation is moderately dryer, with calculations up to 20 mpg city as well as 27 highway. Additionally, the AWD, V-6 Blazer received 24 mpg in our real-world test.

Interior, Cargo, and Comfort

On the interior, the Blazer composition is largely inspired by the Chevy Camaro, with an instinctive climate-control network that offers round air ventilation under the center stack. Furthermore, these vents can be modified and adjusted to the settings of the temperature. The optical developments include soft-touch plastics, as well as a two-tone color system. 

Additionally, the Blazer also provides highly sought-after content, such as atmospheric lighting for the interior, front seats that are both heated and ventilated in addition to heated rear seats as well. The back seat provides ample stretch-out room that can comfort passengers on long road trips. 

What’s more, 31 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 64 when you fold the seats offer enough room to fit 11 and 26 carry-on luggage suitcases. Moreover, there are many storage compartments for small materials and items, as well as a generously sized cubby at the center console’s front end. 

Infotainment and Connectedness

Each Blazer comes stock with a 10-inch touchscreen that offers both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, in addition to wireless charging compatibility for phones. The network’s interface is appealing and simple to navigate. Furthermore, a pair of USB ports situated in the front as well as on the back of the center console comes as stock equipment. Additionally, a 120-volt outlet is also accessible for certain trims. 

Safety and Driver-Assistance Attributes

Chevy arms each Blazer with conventional driver-assistance technology. This includes forward-collision alert as well as automated emergency braking, in addition to automatic high beams, and more. Other discretionary driver assists are available, and the first-rate models come equipped with the most content. Key safety features include:

  • Standard lane-departure alert and lane-keeping assist
  • Available blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic warning
  • Adaptive cruise control
