The 2024 Chevy Blazer is the epitome of cool in the midsize SUV segment. It's an absolutely chic-looking SUV that delivers great tech with worthwhile performance. The 2024 model year retains many of the features introduced in the 2023 model but with a few new features. That means you still get many great enhancements that have made the Blazer, such as an amazing midsize SUV, but with a few added goodies to spruce up the newest outing.
So, what does the 2024 Chevy Blazer have to offer for the new model year? Well, it comes with two exciting new features for the model year line-up. This includes the all-new Riptide Blue Metallic exterior color, which gives the vehicle a fresh, exciting-looking appearance with a deep blue hue that glistens thanks to its metallic coating. The Riptide Blue Metallic also joins seven other colors, which include five solid colors and two two-tone colors. The other solid colors include Copper Bronze Metallic, Summit White, Red Hot, Black, and Sterling Gray Metallic. The two-tone colors include Radiant Red Tintcoat with Black and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat with Black.
The second new addition to the 2024 model year is an interior comfort feature in the form of heated front seats. Previously, this was an available feature for select trims, but now it's a standard feature for every single trim. So, no matter which trim you go with, you have the added convenience of heated front seats. The 2024 Chevy Blazer is also available across four different trim models, ranging from the base 2LT, the more feature-rich 3LT, the performance-focused RS, and the upscale Premier. There are also two special package editions available for the model year as well, such as the Midnight Edition and the Sport/Redline Edition.
One of the defining qualities of the 2024 Chevy Blazer is its performance capabilities. That includes multiple powertrains, different towing options, and drivetrains designed to give drivers enough variety whether you're using the Blazer for daily driving, work, or trips; the vehicle is designed to give you the driving versatility you desire. This is thanks to the powertrains that offer different power scaling for your needs.
The first is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder that produces 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It's paired up with a 9-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with the stability management and traction control system known as StabiliTrak. This ensures you get impressive handling no matter where you're driving or the weather conditions. With the turbocharged 4-cylinder, you have front-wheel and all-wheel drive options and a fuel economy of 22 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway in all-wheel drive. In front-wheel drive, you get 22 MPG in the city and up to 29 MPG on the highway. The 4-cylinder also enables you to tow up to 3,250 lbs worth of cargo.
Alternatively, you have the 3.6-liter V6, which is a great alternative for those Stylewho want more power and precision out of their 2024 Blazer's performance. The engine produces up to 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Like its turbocharged 4-cylinder sibling, the engine is matched to a 9-speed automatic transmission, so you get smooth shifts whether you're accelerating to get the most out of the Blazer's performance on the highway or decelerating as you navigate your way through rush hour traffic. The V6 is also available in front-wheel or all-wheel drive, with a fuel economy of 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway in all-wheel drive and up to 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway in front-wheel drive. The V6 also allows you to tow up to 4,500 lbs worth of cargo with the Blazer.
Part of the charm of the 2024 Chevy Blazer is in its style. It's designed to appeal to the visual senses of SUV shoppers looking for something with sharp lines, defined curves, and contemporary sensibilities. You have an aggressively sporty front fascia with a bold grille, dynamic daytime running lights, and a full LED lighting array. The iconic Chevy bowtie badge sits at the upper center of the grille, while a curved hood with triangular lines helps define the front profile of the Blazer.
In the two-tone color scheme, you have a body-colored design for the main exterior, while a glossy black coating lines the bumper, side body moldings, and roof line. Features like the hands-free gesture liftgate, standard deep-tinted glass, and power-heated auto-dimming side mirrors with integrated turn signals help combine a level of convenience that matches the Blazer's design cues.
A power panoramic sunroof adds some luxury appeal to the SUV, while the available roof rack rails give it an extra sense of utility, whether for storing large items or securing cargo for a weekend trip. Multiple wheel options are also available for those who like to indulge in customizing their Blazer to suit their personal driving preferences. From 18-inch high gloss aluminum painted wheels all the way up to 21-inch triple-finish wheels, there are wheel designs made to appeal to your sense of style.
And the style of the Blazer doesn't just consider the exterior elements but also the interior elements. This includes a standard 8-way power driver seat and a standard 6-way power front passenger seat. Heated front seats are also standard, along with interior lighting that includes overhead lights, front reading lights, and backlit lights and switches, even for the USB ports. Other interior elements that might appeal to those who like how the Blazer looks is the availability of the perforated leather-appointed seats.
If you opt for the Blazer RS trim, the Jet Black perforated leather-appointed seats come with red accents, giving it that very sporty and dangerous look. There are also convenience features that meld with the vehicle's stylistic design, such as the available cargo divider and retractable cargo shade for added privacy and security.
The technology that powers the 2024 Chevy Blazer is plentiful and diverse. From the Chevy Safety Assist that helps with driver aids and alerts to the trailering technology that includes Hitch View and Hitch Assist for those looking to tow light loads with their Blazer, there is much to utilize within the midsize SUV. At the outset, you have the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus System, which comes with integrated support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with Bluetooth wireless support for streaming your favorite media to the Blazer and making use of tech-convenience features such as voice pass-through commands.
Multiple USB data ports come standard across the trim line, along with vehicle health monitors such as the tire fill alert and tire pressure monitoring system, which you can access from the 4.2-inch color digital Driver Information Center. A robust vehicle health management system is also accessible through the apps and OnStar Remote Access support, which is standard across the trim line. You also have a very clear 10.2-inch HD digital touchscreen to access your apps, music, vehicle information, and more.
From the safety side of things, you have Automatic Emergency Braking, a Buckle To Drive reminder that works well with Teen Driver – a mode that is designed to monitor your teen's driving behavior and provide you with a report card – and the Chevrolet Connected Access suite. There's also a Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, and Front Pedestrian Braking. There's also a standard Rear Vision Camera or the availability of HD Surround Vision for improved camera access to get a complete view of the Blazer when parking and accessing difficult spots. With Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, as well as a LATCH system for young kids, the Blazer is fully equipped to tackle everything from daily errands and family outings to work commutes and road trips.
