Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


No. The 2022 Blazer is mostly expected to be a carryover model from 2021, with some tweaks to be made to the interior to make it refined. The exterior styling will have no change. No other necessary changes are made to the Blazer. The Blazer has its own highs and lows, and if you’re fixated on having a sporty SUV with sporty handling and decent performance, then the Blazer might be for you. It falls behind its competition in some other areas. The 2022 model year is also expected to come with 5 trims. It will compete against the likes of the Ford Edge, the Hyundai Santa Fe, and the Toyota RAV4.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Features

The 2022 Chevy Blazer trims remain unchanged as it is a complete carryover model. The vehicle brings great standard features for the asking price.

While the 2LT, the 3LT, and the Premier trims can be equipped with a 2.0 L engine with FWD or AWD and a 3.6L engine with either the front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive setup. The SUV is equipped with decent features for the price it asks. All the trims come loaded with high-tech safety features. 

We Recommend:

All the trims of the 2022 Chevy Blazer are decently priced and you have options to upgrade as per your choice. You can choose any of the trim as per your choice. However, we recommend the 2LT trim that approves some of the most useful features and can be equipped with an FWD or RWD setup with two engine options in hand.

Price

The 2022 Chevy Blazer will come with the same price tag and has not hinted at any increase in price compared to the 2021 model. The base trim will start at around $29,995 and pricing will range all the way up to around $47,000 for the Premier top trim.

Release Date

Nothing has been confirmed by Chevrolet yet, but we expect the release date to be somewhere around the late summer of 2021. However, it can also be pushed back to around fall or late 2021.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Engine and Performance

The 2022 Blazer will continue to offer three different engine options. The base engine is a 2.5L inline-4 that is capable of producing 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. Power is delivered to the wheels by the means of a 9-speed automatic and it only comes in Front Wheel Drive (FWD). This engine is found in the L and 1LT trims.The 2LT, 3LT, and Premier trim replace the lackluster engine with a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 that is capable of delivering 227 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This engine is also married to a 9-speed automatic. This engine comes with options for FWD as well as AWD.

The gearbox is well-refined and well-tuned. The shifts are easy and mostly seamless. The automatic gear shifting is almost excellent. Now, the base engine is very bland. It does not inspire confidence. For daily city driving, the base engine will get the job done. But you would not want to take it on the highway. The turbocharged engine starts to feel more responsive. 

It also adds a bit of sportiness to the mix. While still not super quick, it is definitely more refined than the base engine. Most owners should be satisfied with this. If anyone wants to go all-out, then, of course, you have the powerful V6, which is the sportiest and the quickest of them all. A respectable 0-60 MPH time of 6.5 seconds means that it is ready to compete against anyone on the highway. 

The steering is light and precise with good feedback. The suspension also soaks up bumps to the best of its ability, but it too gives up on a very bumpy road. The Sport mode should intrigue most of the drivers as it offers a sporty handling experience that increases steering response and gear shifts are quicker. The RS trim is made to be the sporty version of the Blazer and it is right up there.

On the base engine stats, the Blazer and Santa Fe fall behind the other two rivals. The Ford Edge does cost more than the others but it also offers more power and torque, outgunning its opponents by a long shot. The RAV4 also gains around 10 horses more than the Blazer. Only the Edge offers a turbocharged engine. No wonder the Ford is the quickest, albeit not by a huge margin.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Fuel Economy

The fuel economy of the Blazer is highly subjected to change based on how you configure the Blazer. The base engine returns a fuel economy of 21/27/23 for city/highway/combined driving. The turbocharged engine delivers different fuel economy results based on whether you decide to choose the AWD or the FWD. 

The FWD gets 22/29/25 MPG for the city/highway/combined driving, while the AWD drops the same to around 22/27/24 MPG. If you want the hungry V6, then obviously, you would have to pay more for fuel. The FWD variant of the V6 consumes 20/27/22 MPG for city/highway/driving and the AWD of the same engine gets 19/26/21 MPG for city/highway/combined.

Don’t worry, AWD fans, because you will get a larger tank size. The AWD comes with a massive 21.7-gallon fuel tank, while the FWD hosts a smaller, but impressive yet, 19.4-gallon fuel tank. This gives the base engine a range of 407/523/446 miles for city/highway/combined. 

The turbocharged engine with AWD gets 477/585/520 miles for city/highway/combined. Finally, the V6 with the AWD gets 412/564/455 miles for the same. No one should have any complaints with the range of the Blazer. With a range easily over 450 miles, it should be fit for most people for inter-state travels.

The chevy comes with the biggest fuel tank, but it does not offer the best fuel economy. Nonetheless, it has an amazing range. But the others do too. The RAV4, despite having a much smaller tank size, still manages to almost match the Blazer when it comes to range. All of the SUVs offer an excellent range, with the Santa Fe winning the award for the most.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Interior

The Blazer is not the most attractive interior that you might find, but it is also not the worst interior. The interior might have a few tweaks here and there in the 2022 model year, but we do not yet know what they might be. The dashboard is laid out neatly with all the buttons and dials placed very close to the driver’s reach. The design is ergonomic. Build quality is also decent. There are hard plastics, and you won’t expect too much luxury inside a car at this price range. But the Blazer has its fair share of soft-touch materials. 

2022 Chevrolet Blazer SUV Dashboard

The base trim comes with premium cloth trim and the driver’s seat is 8-way power-adjustable. The front passenger’s seat is 4-way manually adjustable. The head restraints are 2-way adjustable. The manual tilt and telescoping steering column make it easier to find the perfect driving position. The higher trims get perforated leather-appointed trim. 

The front seats come with 8-way and 4-way power-adjustable settings for the driver and front passenger respectively. You also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Interior spacing is also good for the front row. The headroom and legroom are very good for the front passengers. The rear row is also quite spacious, with generally more legroom than the rivals. That being said, three tall adults might not want to be seated there for a long journey. 

The Blazer also has tons of cargo space behind the rear row. It has around 30.5 cubic feet, which should be enough for most of your needs – such as groceries, weekend trips, luggage, camping, or skiing gear. If you need extra space, you are free to fold down the 60/40-split rear seats to open up about 64.2 cubic feet of cargo storage, which is an extreme amount of space. Small-item storage inside the car is also decent, with a decently sized armrest cubby and glovebox.

The Blazer comes with an 8” touchscreen which is quite intuitive and easy to use. Standard features include Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, SiriusXM, etc. The RS trim gets the infotainment 3 Plus system, which adds navigation and also has a high-resolution touchscreen. On the higher trims, you can also choose an eight-speaker Bose premium audio system. Two USB ports and wireless charging can also be equipped as an option. A rear-seat entertainment system can also be chosen as an option on the higher trims.

The front row spacing in all of these vehicles is the same more or less. The Santa Fe clearly has the best overall spacing up front with tons of legroom.

The rear row in all of these SUVs is very decent, though the Santa Fe offers excellent and tons of room back here too. It also has more cargo capacity than the Blazer. However, Ford wins in terms of the best cargo spacing. Some notable interior features inside the 2022 Chevy Blazer are:

  • 8-way power-adjustable driver seat
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Wireless Charging
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • 60/40 split rear seats
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Exterior

We don’t expect Chevy to make any changes to the 2022 Blazer, and they don’t need to, as it is perfect the way it is. The styling of the Blazer is a huge selling point for the car. It is outlandish. It is rogue with a touch of modernity.

There are a number of sharp angles, curves, and visually pleasing elements. The headlights are sleek and thin and give way to the grille. A horizontal bar connects the two headlamps with the “+” displayed at the center.

The sloping roofline adds to the sporty dynamics of the Blazer. The rear end houses the angular and sharp headlights. The dual exhausts further make it sportier. The Blazer comes with one of the biggest wheelbases and it is also quite heavy. We reckon its styling will surely turn some heads on the street. Some exterior features you will find on the higher trims are:

  • 20” wheels 
  • Black roof rails
  • IntelliBeam headlamps
  • Automatic on/off headlamp control with automatic delay
  • LED taillamps
  • Power-adjustable, auto-dimming body-colored outside mirrors
  • Deep tinted rear windows
  • Intermittent washer

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Safety

Since there won’t be any major changes in the 2021 Blazer, we can expect similar safety ratings that the 2021 model managed to garner. The American SUV managed to get a 5-star safety rating from NHTSA. It also achieved a “GOOD” in all the categories in the IIHS tests. Needless to say, the 2022 Blazer will also be an extremely safe vehicle.

You get all the goodies in the higher trims. Safety features such as StabiliTrak, front pedestrian braking, DRLs, Teen Driver, HD rearview camera, rear park assist, lane change alert with side blind zone alert, lane-keep assist with lane departure warning, following distance indicator, automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, dual-stage airbags. The list of safety features in the 2022 Chevy Blazer are as follows:

  • All-wheel ABS
  • 7 Airbags
  • Front, side, and rearview camera
  • Dual front side-mounted airbags
  • Front, rear, and third row head airbags
  • Post-collision safety system
  • Rear door child safety locks
  • Remote anti-theft alarm system
  • Blindspot warning accident avoidance system
  • Front and rear ventilated disc brakes
  • Stability control
  • Traction control
  • Engine immobilizer
  • Rear parking sensors

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Competition

2022 Chevrolet Blazer vs Ford Edge

The Edge offers better performance than the Blazer but has similar fuel economy, similar interior spacing. The Edge does beat out the Blazer when it comes to cargo spacing. They trade blows back and forth. The Edge does cost more than the Blazer’s base version.

Ford Edge

2022 Chevrolet Blazer vs Hyundai Santa Fe

The Santa Fe offers tons of space for its interior and also its cargo. Performance is more or less equal, but the Blazer offers better sporty dynamics than the Santa Fe. It is more focused on offering comfort and luxury rather than being sporty.

Hyundai Santa Fe

2022 Chevrolet Blazer vs Toyota RAV4 

The RAV4 is a serious off-roader and also can be a serious daily driver. It offers better fuel economy, interior quality, and spacing and also has more cargo space.

Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 is a better all-rounder but the Blazer is more oriented at being sporty.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Final Verdict

The Chevy Blazer is a very compelling choice for anyone looking to feed their sporty crossover desires without having to spend a ton. With handsome looks and a practical interior, the handling and the option to customize makes it highly appealing. Since the 2022 model will be a carryover model, we don’t expect any special shifts in people’s perspectives from the 2021 model.
