Chevrolet Blazer for 2022 has some colors in the product range that are departing, as well as reappearing, and as well as some alternations to the packages and the equipment. However, the headline is the departure of an engine option. It was once available with three engines. Now, the 2022 Blazer will now only offer two. The powerful V-6 is, indeed, safe. But it’s the base engine, which is a naturally-aspirated 2.5 liter I-4, that did not make the cut this year.
Chevrolet Blazer Gets a More Powerful Engine
The entry-level engine will be dropping thereby increase the starting price of the Blazer. In fact, the 2.5L was considering a lackluster engine. It did trail the more powerful 2.0-liter turbo’s highway fuel economy (in EPA testing, at least). So being an entry-level engine, it, in fact, was only offered on the types of Blazers that can be dinging for having sub-par material quality as the ergonomic decisions. Moreover, on the stylish, sporty V-6 RS models, the Camaro-accented styling and muscular performance did provide enough entertainment value to make up for the interior issues.
In fact, the turbocharged 2.0 liter I-4 is now the entry-level engine. It is standard on the LT and Premier. Therefore, the 3.6-liter V-6 is standard on the RS trim. Also available on 3LT and Premier.
There are many more significant updates to the 2022 Blazer on the aesthetic front.
After all, this is a style-forward crossover SUV that’s already offering in some bold colors, so any exterior appearance changes are important. Most notably, there’s a new black-painted roof option on LT trims (with the Midnight, Sport Edition, or Redline Edition options) and the RS. Chevy isn’t offering a variety of contrasting top colors.
There are two new patient colors that appear. They include Nitro Yellow Metallic and Blue Glow Metallic. Those replace Bright Blue and Midnight Blue.
