The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer SUV is sharp in its design from the inside out, as it received quite a few updates in terms of its styling options and in-car comfort features. The based L trim is no more, leaving behind a highly capable turbocharger and V6 engine. The Premier trim has also received a styling update, while the Enhanced Convenience package is now available for this model.

There are two engine choices available for the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer, the first is the 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged, which has an excellent output of 227 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 3.6-liter V6 has an even greater output of 308 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Selecting between the two really depends on one’s preference, because the turbo engine is highly efficient, while the V6 just screams power and excitement.
Regardless of what you opt for, both engines are matched with a quick-shifting 9-speed transmission and standard front-wheel-drive (FWD), along with optional all-wheel-drive (AWD). Buyers are the AWD RS model will also get a twin-clutch AWD system.
Driving and Handling
Since last year’s naturally aspirated 2.5-liter on the previous base L trim got the boot, 2022 Blazer’s are now upgraded with the turbocharged 2.0-L as a standard. This new base engine provides the perfect balance of performance and efficiency.
At the same time, the brawny V6 is incredibly confident in its acceleration, especially as it weaves in and out the lanes on the freeway. It may be fast, but it also has composure and accuracy, making it one of the best crossovers to drive.
The updated Blazer is seen as the Camera-inspired SUV, and it isn’t hard to see why. With its husky body lines, contoured profile, and let’s not forget that intense gaze it gives with its LED running lights.
The Blazer RS trim comes with a cool and suave appearance package, making look even sportier than it already is, while the Premier trim also has plenty of premium aesthetic features of its own.
Inhouse, the 2-rows can accommodate 5 passengers. The cabin is visually appealing and has a cool two-tone color scheme, then ups the ante with comforts (depending on the trim) like ambient interior lighting, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats.
The cargo room comes out to 30.5 cubic-feet and then 64.2 with the rear seats down. Interior color choices consist of Dark Galvanized/Light Galvanized, Jet Black, and Jet Black/Maple Sugar. Of course, the RS and Premier models change the personality of the interior with their own appearance packages.
Conveniences that both drives and passengers can enjoy include an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and a Wi-Fi hotspot, dual-zone climate control, an HD backup camera. There are also other excitements on the higher trims like a hands-free power liftgate, an automatic heated steering wheel, and a navigation system.
