In 2019, Chevrolet revived the Blazer name for this mid-size crossover; it had last been used on a compact SUV whose long production run ended in 2005.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2022, the Blazer gets a few minor updates. LT and RS trims can be optioned with a two-tone roof treatment, and Premier trim gets some new styling cues. Premier also adds a new enhanced convenience package, and you can option your 2.0L turbo Blazer with a trailering package for the first time.
Chevrolet offers the Blazer in LT, True North, RS, and Premier trim levels. LT and True North start with a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine; a 3.6L V6 is optional in True North and standard in RS and Premier. Both engines are bolted to a nine-speed transmission; AWD is standard in True North and up, and optional in LT.
LT starts with 18-inch wheels, LED taillights, six-speaker audio, power driver’s seat, 8.0-inch touchscreen, and dual-zone A/C.
Also included is the Chevrolet safety assist suite of forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, following distance indicator, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.
True North adds auto-dimming side mirrors, power tailgate, power front passenger seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, and leather upholstery.

According to Natural Resources Canada, the Blazer’s estimated fuel consumption is 10.6/8.0 L/100 km (city/highway) with the 2.0L and FWD, and 10.8/8.7 with AWD. V6/AWD models are rated for 12.6/9.2 L/100 km.
