2022 Chevy Blazer Given ‘Recommended’ Rating by Consumer Reports

Friday, December 10th, 2021

The 2022 Chevy Blazer was recently given a ‘Recommended’ rating from the non-profit organization Consumer Reports. The non-profit dedicates itself to independent product testing and consumer-oriented research. Last year, Consumer Reports gave the 2021 Chevy Blazer a negative rating and advised consumers to avoid the midsize SUV. It seems Chevrolet listened to consumer complaints and drastically improved the Chevy Blazer as Consumer Reports ranked the SUV third in its midsize SUV segment. We’ll take a look at some of the changes Chevy made to the Blazer as well as what metrics Consumer Reports used for their rating.

2022 Chevy Blazer Recommended

The Chevy Blazer was reintroduced in 2019 as an all-new midsize crossover. The 2022 Blazer comes as a fifth-generation vehicle and as such, Chevrolet made sure to provide consumers with the latest in technology and driver-assist features. The 2022 Chevy Blazer comes equipped with either a 2.0L four-cylinder engine capable of 228 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque, or a naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 engine capable of 308 horsepower and 270lb-ft of torque. The midsize SUV rides on the GM C1 platform and comes equipped with advanced safety features like forward-collision warnings and automatic emergency braking.

According to Consumer Reports, the 2022 Chevy Blazer scored an overall score of 82, placing the midsize SUV within the top three of the organization’s Midsize Sport-utility Vehicle segment. On the road test, the Blazer scored 83 out of 100. For predicted reliability, the Blazer scored four out of five. For predicted owner satisfaction, Consumer Reports gave the SUV three out of five. Safety features were ranked standard and fuel economy was rated at 13 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg overall. 

Consumer Reports praised the 2022 Chevy Blazer for its powertrain and drivetrain. The midsize SUV had more than adequate acceleration and braking. It also had a very responsive transmission as handling was precise and nimble. Inside the cabin, Consumer Reports noted that owners will enjoy a quiet and comfortable interior. As for criticisms, Consumer Reports stated that visibility was poor at times given the structure of the vehicle. Overall, it seems the 2022 Chevy Blazer is better than it’s ever been. The midsize SUV offers smooth driving, precise handling, and it comes equipped with the latest safety and driver-assist features. The 2022 Chevy Blazer starts at an MSRP of $33,400 (plus destination fee).

GM Files New Trademark Application for Grand Blazer

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

General Motors has been stirring up excitement lately with a new trademark application filed in Argentina. It has many speculating as to whether GM will undergo a larger Chevy Grand Blazer or whether it will make an exclusive vehicle for the Southern American country. Chevrolet has been making headlines with its new all-electric 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 which it hopes will compete with Ford’s F-150 Lightning. A Chevy Grand Blazer could compete with Ford’s Bronco as well, so this may be a good opportunity for the automaker. Recently, Chevy has been updating its vehicles like the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban with new off-road packages and safety features as seen with the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer. Chevrolet has a chance to create more enthusiasm with this new trademark, but we’ll have to wait for more information to determine the route GM will take.

Is There a New Chevy Blazer in the Works?

General Motors recently filed a new trademark application in Argentina for the name “Grand Blazer.” This has raised interest as some have speculated that a Chevy Blazer that returns to its rugged roots could be in the works. The current crossover Chevy Blazer provides good performance and handling, but it isn’t a true off-road vehicle like the original. If Chevrolet has plans for a more rugged Chevy Blazer, it could do well in the off-road sphere against vehicles like the Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler. 

Chevrolet submitted their new trademark application with the Argentina National Institute of Industrial Property. There weren’t too many details included in the application aside from the “Grand Blazer” title. This doesn’t leave much to go off of, but typically “Grand” implies a larger or more luxurious vehicle. The flip side is that GM isn’t doing much with the new trademark, which would be a little disappointingly but somewhat understandable. The Chevrolet Grand Blazer title has been used in Southern American markets as a rebadged version of the Chevrolet Tahoe up until about 2019 so a Chevrolet Grand Blazer could be made exclusively for this Southern market. Countries like Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela have enjoyed these vehicles before so they may be getting a new one. This is plausible as GM did file the application in Argentina, but we’ll have to see. 

One more theory about the new trademark application is a new three-row version of the Chevy Blazer. This three-row version is currently sold exclusively in China. The US has a Chevy Blazer with only two rows of seats so the Grand title could add additional room. Whichever direction GM takes, it will have an impact on competitors and potentially entice new consumers.
