The Environmental Protection Agency rates the 2022 Chevy Blazer with the available V6 engine at 19 mph city, 27 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined. An identically equipped 2021 Chevy Blazer, meanwhile, was rated at 20 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined. That means that for whatever reason, the EPA has decided to knock one point off the vehicle’s city fuel economy rating for the 2022 model year. Crucially, though, the combined fuel economy rating remains the same, so this is a negligible change that will go unnoticed by most consumers.

The Chevy Blazer V6 offers GM’s 3.6L LGX V6 gasoline engine, which produces 308 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 270 pound-feet of torque at 5,000 rpm, and comes with the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. Power is sent to the front wheels, although all-wheel-drive available as an option. GM’s turbocharged 2.0L LSY four-cylinder serves as the entry-level engine option and doles out 227 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Like the V6, the four-cylinder engine is only offered with the GM nine-speed automatic. Base models previously offered GM’s naturally aspirated 2.5L LCV four-cylinder, which doles out 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque, however this engine will no longer be offered from 2022 onward.
As we reported previously, the 2022 Blazer will ditch the base L and second-tier 1LT trim levels from the line-up and will drop the available cargo floor rail system (RPO code RAE). Two exterior colors, Bright Blue Metallic (RPO GLT) and Midnight Blue Metallic (RPO GLU) will also be replaced by two yet-to-be-announced hues.
