The one thing you definitely can’t say about the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer is that it’s boring. The Blazer stands out as something fresh, modern, and highly desirable in a world where the roads in and around Yellowknife are busy with crossovers that look like they were all styled in the same studio by the same designers. The Blazer isn’t just a pretty face either. As well as its stunning exterior styling, the 2022 Blazer also has lots of standard safety tech, excellent handling, strong engines, plenty of interior space, and on-point infotainment.
The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer lineup is nice and easy to get your head around. Four trim levels cover a good spectrum of budgets, all of which are standard all-wheel-drive but have all-wheel-drive apart from the entry model, which is front-wheel-drive in its standard form with AWD available as an option.
The entry-level model in the Chevy Blazer lineup for 2022 is the LT, and above that, the range goes to the True North, RS, and finally to the range-topping Premier. US versions of the Blazer feature two different AWD systems, but the Blazer in Canada always gets the more capable of the two Chevy AWD systems.
You’re probably not going to come across the base engine for the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer because you’ll only find it under the hood of the LT model that’s primarily aimed at fleets, even though it’s a very capable powerplant. The unit in question is a 2.0-litre turbo-four that develops 228 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, which gets sent to the front or all four wheels of the Blazer through a standard nine-speed automatic transmission.
The engine you’re almost sure to have in your new Blazer is a 3.6-litre V-6 that puts 308 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque at the Chevy’s disposal, and that goes to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. If you’re looking to tow with your Blazer, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn that the Chevy is considerably more capable than many rivals. Turbo-four versions can tow up to 1587 kg (3,500 pounds), but that increases to an impressive 2041 kg (4,500 pounds) if you have a V-6 model.
All Blazer models come with an extensive list of standard safety features. These include automatic emergency braking, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, a rear vision camera, and the Teen Driver feature.
True North is the model retail customers will start with, and these come generously equipped with standard features. Those features include 18-inch alloys, IntelliBeam auto high beams, a power programmable liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, perforated leather-appointed seats, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Premier models come with 20-inch alloys, a premier signature grille, and a power tilt and telescoping steering column. However, you can still raid the options list for luxury features such as ventilated front seats.
