The Chevrolet Blazer Is Our Automotive White Night

The Chevrolet Blazer made its first introduction into the car market in 2018 and proved to be a massive hit among consumers across the globe. In the past two years, the automaker has seen a considerable increase in sales. Issues regarding intense demand in combination with the current global chip shortage, have caused major delays and disruptions regarding supply issues, however, GM China is still promoting new special edition cars, and a new one has just entered the automotive stratosphere.

Chevy’s new mid-size crossover is a newcomer to the Chinese market and is counting on this new exclusive trim, the White Night Edition, to help invite more sales. So far, initial reactions have been positive, but the question is “Is this actually a new trim level or simply an appearance package?”

The upcoming Chevrolet Blazer White Night Edition, which is derived from the RS trim level, made its introduction last week at the 2021 Guangzhou International Motor Show and displayed exceptional exterior styling built around the USDM Midnight Edition package. This new range-topping SUV crossover will only have a traditional seven-seat configuration available. The outer body of the White Night Edition involves a classy black and white color scheme.

The base of the car is smothered in a cool and fresh Pearl White, while the rest of the car encompasses black highlights and fun minute details like blacked-out pillars. The White Night Edition drives on a set of 21-inch black wheels that really helps to bring the whole design together.

The inside of the latest Blazer also collaborates with the RS model and involves red and silver trim details, along with upgraded technologies, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Beneath the hood, you’ll discover GM’s mild-hybrid powertrain which encompasses a turbocharged 2.0-liter LSY four-cylinder engine and an electric motor with a 48-volt battery. The intricate combination of mechanics produces an excellent output of 233 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. All four wheels are powered up through the 9-speed automatic transmission.

General standard one should expect in a base LT Blazer is an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and a Wi-Fit hotspot, dual-zone climate control, an HD backup camera, and the Chevy Safety Assist package, which includes automatic emergency braking with front pedestrian braking, lane-keeping assist with lane-departure warning, a following-distance indicator, forward-collision alert, and automatic high-beams.

Optional features on upper trims involve a hands-free power liftgate, an automatic heated steering wheel, and a navigation system.

The White Night Edition is now ready to order with the MSRP of this car amounting to 333,900 CNY ($52,285), including destination fees. Those who prefer their new 2022 Blazer fully loaded should be prepared to spend nearly $60,000, (plus destination fee) in North America.

When the time comes to purchase your spanking new 2022 Chevrolet Blazer, with the White Night Edition or not, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand ranging in various shapes and sizes. Those who are interested in this vehicle or any of our other models can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

Chevrolet Debuts its 650-Horsepower Beast

Chevrolet showcased one of its off-road concepts at the 2021 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Named the Beast, this four-door pickup looked mighty and rugged. It’s based on the Chevy Silverado but it comes in much more powerful and capable than the average pickup. Equipped with a V8 engine that’s capable of 650 horsepower, Chevy’s new Beast is sure to pose a threat to the competition. This concept pickup utilizes the same engine as the Corvette so you know it’s got some great specs. We’ll dive deeper into the concept vehicle and see what Chevy’s got in store for those looking for one beast of a pickup. 

Chevy Debuts Beast Off-Road Concept

Chevrolet recently debuted its Beast off-road concept pickup at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The domineering pickup looked quite impressive with its 37-inch mud-terrain tires. Mounted inside of these huge tires were 20-inch beadlock wheels. As for the engine, the Beast pickup utilizes a supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 engine that’s capable of 650 horsepower. The engine comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel-drive system with a two-speed transfer case. This concept pickup also comes equipped with Brembo brakes. 

The Beast pickup is based on the Chevy Silverado. It is a four-door truck with two spare tires in the bed. The concept pickup stands tall and empowered with its 126.9-inch wheelbase and 13.5 inches of ground clearance. The pickup is almost an oversized version of the Silverado as it comes in almost 10 inches wider than the standard Silverado. For this feat, the name Beast is quite appropriate. In addition to its large stature, the concept pickup comes equipped with LED lights, skid plates, and an off-road suspension setup. Control arms come installed in the front along with adjustable dampers with external reservoirs. At the back of the vehicle is a live axle. 

Riding inside this beast of a pickup, drivers will note two 7-inch LCD screen monitors. These provide real-time performance data about the pickup like pitch and roll. For safety, drivers can buckle themselves in with a four-point harness while sitting in the Recaro performance seats. Chevy really went all out with this concept pickup. Its large exterior makes it reminiscent of a video game and perhaps that’s where the inspiration came from. Drivers will certainly feel like the main character as they traverse the toughest of terrains. We’ll have to wait for more information but for the ultimate off-road enthusiast, the Chevy Beast looks unchallenged.

5 Sensational Features of The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that SUVs and crossovers have all but taken over the car market, and each year this interest in these types of vehicles grows even more, with the Chevrolet Tahoe serving as one of the main leads in its segment. This full-sized SUV is back for the 2022 model year, and it’s introducing a more powerful engine and a slew of new and exciting features. Here are 5 Sensational Features of The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe!

Expanded 6.2-Liter V8 Engine

The base engine on the upcoming Tahoe is a 5.3-liter V8, which has an incredible output of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Then for daredevils, Chevrolet also provides its Tahoe buyers with the option of a larger 6.2-liter V8 that produces a magnificent 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Even still, the car still manages to get a combined average of 21 mpg.

Transparent Trailer View

Due to the length and weight distribution of a trailer, towing these campers can prove to be quite difficult for driving, and even more so with the blocked view. In the same way as its kinsman, the GMC Sierra, the new Tahoe implements a translucent trailer view system, which ensures that the driver can see through the trailer by the use of attachable cameras. This is together with the 13 available camera views surrounding the vehicles, making dead angles virtually impossible when driving.

Seamless Infotainment System With Google services

The Chevrolet company is very adept in providing advanced in-cabin features, particularly when it comes to infotainment. This is even more expected in its luxury vehicles like the Tahoe. For this model year, this concept is taken even further with its effective stand-alone technology that necessitates very little connection with your phone due to the built-in Google functionality. Some examples include Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.

Android users will also appreciate the Android Auto systems, which enables one to download his or her apps into the infotainment system, making them accessible through the 10.2-inch touchscreen. This helps to alleviate the distraction of messing with your phone while zooming on the freeway.

Magnetic Ride Control (MRC)

The Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) is an incredibly innovative technology of the automaker. This system adapts the shock-absorbing resistance of the Tahoe to the road condition in real-time. This is contrary to regular mechanical components used in traditional suspension and shock absorbers, the MRC uses monotube dampers full of magnetorheological fluid.

The density of the fluid either increases or decreases according to what is required in the reaction to the wheel forces while driving on various terrains and handled by a set of sensors and an electronic control unit. The MRC is tremendously swift and precise, making driving in any condition stress-free.

8,400-Pound Towing Capacity

The 2022 Tahoe’s 6.2-liter V8 engine isn’t just fast, it’s also quite mighty, with its towing ability amounting to a maximum of 8,400 lbs. A capacity like this, taking long camping trips all summer long will become like second nature.

The 2022 Chevy Blazer: What’s Staying and What’s Going

The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer is marketed as the fourth model year of the revamped mid-size SUV, and brings along several updates and changes.

Model Line

Concerning the model line, the Blazer has seen a reconfiguration with its trim levels, thanks to the elimination of the entry-level L trim and the second-level 1LT model from the lineup. With this in mind, here are the current trims left for our choosing.

  • LT (2LT, 3LT)
  • RS (1RS)
  • Premier (0HD)

Exterior

Looking outward, the upcoming Blazer also retires two exterior color options, together with the addition of two new shades.

New Exterior Colors:

  • Nitro Yellow Metallic
  • Blue Glow Metallic

Deleted Exterior Colors:

  • Bright Blue Metallic
  • Midnight Metallic

What’s more, the addition of the available black two-toned roof is available for certain colors on the LT and RS trims. There’s also a change to the accessibility with some of these colors, such as with Cayenne Orange Metallic, now only available on LT’s. 

On top of this, two wheel sets have been removed in favor of three new wheel options.

New Wheels:

  • 20-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels (QH4)
  • 20-inch Medium Android machined-face aluminum wheels (SUU)
  • 20-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels (S1S) (LPO-level item)

Deleted Wheels:

  • 20-inch Medium Android machined face aluminum wheels (Q9Z)
  • Standard on Premier models
  • 20-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels (S2D)
  • LPO-level item available on LT and Premier models

Every Blazer now has available black lug nuts, along with optional ones (not including the RS trim). These optional lug nuts and wheel lock kits are dealer-installed (LPO-level items). RPO codes for the black front and rear bowties are also receiving a change, as the B94 is standing in place of the SFZ.

The Premier trim is also getting a slew of changes, including alterations regarding the treatment of the front and rear lower fascias, wheel moldings, rockers, and wheels.

Interior

Inward, the 2022 Blazer eliminates the floor rail system for the cargo area. This crossover also does away with the LPO-level dealer-installed options mentioned below:

  • Cargo flex divider
  • Premium carpeted floor mats
  • Embroidered front row headrests
  • Rear seat infotainment system without DVD player
  • Rear seat infotainment system with DVD player
  • Keyless entry keypad

At the same time, the six-speaker audio system is now standard on Premier trim, with the Bose premium 8-speaker audio system also a standard feature.

Likewise, the manual tilt and telescoping steering column has also become a standard on Premier models, with a power tilt and telescoping system featured on the 2021 model year.

Mechanical

A few changes have also been made to the Chevy Blazer’s new lineup, beginning with the elimination of the 2.5L LCV 14 motor which acted as the base engine in lesser models, which are also being eliminated (as previously discussed). As a result, the 2.0L LSY Turbo I4 engine will become standard on 2Lt’s and the 3.6L LGX V6 will no longer be featured on this trim.

During which, the trailering equipment package, which comes with Hitch Guidance, has  become a standard feature on AWDs and still remains as an optional tool on FWD models. Remarkably, the ROP code centered on trailering equipment for FWD Blazer’s (VR2) has been dropped. Even though the trailer equipment is available with both engines, it only comes with heavy-duty cooling for models geared with the V6 LGX engine.

There are other minor changes in the content of this package included in each trim level:

  • For 3LT trims: also includes Hitch View when Sound & Technology Package is ordered
  • For RS trims: also includes Hitch View and heavy-duty cooling
  • For Premier trims: also includes Hitch View

Packages

Some packages are getting revamps of their own, such as the Enhanced Convenience becoming available on Premier’s, which is quite a shift considering it just became standard on this trim for the 2021 model year. 

Moreover, the Cargo Essentials Package and Interior Luxury Package have been deleted.

Cargo Essentials Package:

Was available on RS and Premier models and included:

  • Cargo tie-downs (LPO-level item)
  • Horizontal cargo net (LPO-level item)
  • For use with floor rail system

Interior Luxury Package:

Was an LPO-level item and included:

  • Illuminated front door sill plates
  • Premium carpeted floor mats for first and second rows

For LT models:

Not available with:

  • Floor Liner Package
  • Interior Protection Package
  • Dark Galvanized/Light Galvanized interiors
  • Replaces standard floor mats
  • For RS and Premier models:
  • Not available with:
  • Floor Liner Package
  • Interior Protection Package
  • Replaces standard floor mats

2022 Chevy Blazer Availability

On August 9th, production of the 2022 Chevy Blazer was set to begin at General Motors Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico. Unfortunately, production was brought to a halt on August 23rd, which marked the end of the production of the 2021 model year. We’ve recently learned that the car manufacturer resumed production of the Blazer, along with its Traverse and Buick Enclave, which had been halted again until September 27th. 

Unsurprisingly, the ongoing global microchip shortage has resulted in several delays among various automakers, including the Chevrolet company. With this in mind, we expect the 2022 Blazer to reach dealer lots sometime before the end of this year.

Furthermore, it’s expected that the current-gen Blazer will remain in production throughout the 2025 model year, at the very least. After this, it will likely be replaced by its new electric counterpart, as well as many other vehicles in Chevrolet’s lineup.
