2022 Chevrolet Blazer

Pros: Fine ride and handling balance; robust acceleration in V6 models; feature-rich, user-friendly infotainment system

Cons: Prices are steep on high-end models; cargo volume is slightly below average for the class

CG Says: The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer loses its base 2.5-liter engine as well as the base L and 1LT trim levels, but gains a two-tone paint option, a minor trim update for the Premier model, and a trailering package for the 2.0-liter engine. The Blazer is a 5-passenger midsize SUV and slots between the compact Equinox and “large midsize” 3-row Traverse in Chevrolet’s SUV lineup. It offers a choice of a 230-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, or a 308-hp 3.6-liter V6; both powerplants are paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on all trims with all-wheel drive as a $2,700 option. Available safety features include forward collision warning with automatic braking and pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and a rearview camera mirror. Other available features include power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, hands-free liftgate, Wi-Fi hotspot, multi-view camera system, and wireless cell-phone charging. In terms of exterior styling, handling, and performance from its V6 engine, the Blazer targets the sportier side of the mainstream midsize SUV market. The cabin is comfortable and spacious in both the first and second rows, and Chevrolet’s excellent “Infotainment 3” touchscreen interface boasts plenty of useful features. Prices on optioned-up topline models crest $50,000, however.
