2023 Chevrolet Blazer Gets New Styling and Tech

The Blazer is one of GM's most popular SUVs, and despite the midsize crossover slated to go all-electric quite soon, Chevrolet hasn't forgotten to give it a needed update for the 2023 model year. The facelift brings refreshed styling and upgraded technology, in order to keep the customer appeal going.

In front, you'll notice that the DRLs have gotten even thinner, with a new signature that is better integrated with the grille. The chrome bar (black gloss on the RS) across the grille remains unchanged, but the grille itself has been revised. The trim surrounding the grille now curves outward to meet the reshaped headlamps, which are still located below the DRLs. In the back, the taillights are the only noticeable change, with completely redesigned lighting signatures as well as relocated turning signals and reverse lights. Chevrolet added a generous number of new colors to the Blazer's palette, with Fountain Blue, Copper Bronze, Sterling Grey, and Radiant Red available for an additional cost. The wheels are available in 18", 20", and 21" rims.

The cabin has been upgraded drastically, and the larger 10-inch infotainment system is now mounted at a higher position for easier access. The system offers a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, but this feature is still just an option. Wireless smartphone charging is standard on the RS and Premier trims and optional on the 2LT and 3LT. Interior colors are almost unchanged, but a stylish new Nightshift Blue color is available on the RS. The Chevy Safety Assist package is a standard feature on the 2023 Blazer, and includes front pedestrian warning, a following distance indicator, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist. Adaptive cruise control is a separate option, but is now offered on all trims. Other options include a power lift gate and a black two-tone roof.

The 2.0 liter turbo four-cylinder and 3.6 liter V6 are still the only engine options, with the former standard on the 2LT, 3LT, and Premier and the latter standard on the RS. Both powertrains are paired with a 9-speed automatic. An AWD drivetrain is available as an option on all trims but the RS, since that trim offers advanced AWD with a twin clutch. Pricing hasn't been announced for the upgraded Blazer, but the new crossover is scheduled to release this summer.

Do you think the 2023 Blazer is a big improvement?
