2023 Chevrolet Blazer Unveiled With Sharper Styling, Better Tech
Chevrolet today unveiled the refreshed 2023 Blazer, which receives slightly updated styling, a big 10-inch infotainment screen, new colors, new wheels, and more.
From the outside, the updates are very subtle and the overall shape remains unchanged. There are, however, tweaks to some of the details that make a difference. The brightwork in the grille, for instance, still underlines the DRLs but now splits down to the reshaped lower light. Around back, the taillight design has also changed, with Chevrolet opting for an intersecting pattern instead of the chevrons the Blazer had previously.
Along with those changes, Chevrolet is adding some new wheels to the mix in 18-, 20-, and 21-inch sizes. Customers will also be able to get their Blazer in Fountain Blue, Sterling Gray Metallic, Copper Bronze Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat exterior colors, all for an extra charge.

Inside, the RS model also gets a new color: Nightshift Blue (which sounds like it would make a pretty good rockabilly song). More importantly, all models now come with a 10-inch center touchscreen to help with all your infotainment needs. Wireless charging for smartphones is now available on all models (standard on the RS and Premier models, available as an option on the lower 2LT and 3LT models) and 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot is also available now.
Chevrolet is also making the Blazer’s driver assistance features available through more of the range. Adaptive Cruise Control will now be available for the 2LT and 3LT models, while the Chevy Safety Assist package comes standard. It offers automatic emergency braking, a following distance indicator, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warnings, and automatic high beams.
Under the hood, the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer is offered with two engine options. Customers can opt for a 2.0-liter inline-four that makes 228 hp (231 PS/170 kW) and is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission or a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 308 hp (312 PS/230 kW) and is paired to the same transmission.
The refreshed 2023 Chevrolet Blazer will go on sale this summer, the automaker says. The company has not yet revealed what impact these updates will have on the price of the vehicle.
