The 2022 Chevy Blazer crossover is set to introduce a few important changes and updates over the current 2021 model year, as GM Authority has covered previously. Now, we have another update to add to the list, namely the deletion of the cargo floor rail system.
Previously, the cargo floor rail system was available in the Blazer crossover since the model launched for the 2019 model year, and included an adjustable cargo fence that could slide forward and backward, providing an adjustable storage solution.
The cargo floor rail system was tagged with RPO code RAE, and was offered as an available option on the Chevy Blazer RS, and standard on the Chevy Blazer Premier. Pricing was set at $150 in the RS, and required the Enhanced Convenience Package (RPO code ZL8), which costs $1,660.
Now, however, with the debut of the 2022 Chevy Blazer, the cargo floor rail system will be removed from the Blazer lineup.
The 2022 Chevy Blazer is the fourth model year of the crossover. In addition to deletion of the cargo floor rail system, the 2022 Blazer will also lose the base-level L and second-tier 1LT trim levels. Both trims were available exclusively with the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, which will also be removed from the Blazer lineup with the introduction of the 2022 model year.
With the deletion of the L and 1LT trim levels, the V92 trailering package will be standard across the lineup, with front-wheel drive models offering the package as optional, and all-wheel drive models offering it as standard. Additionally, the package will be available with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, increasing the towing capacity for models equipped with the LSY from 1,500 pounds to 3,500 pounds.
What’s more, 2022 Chevy Blazer Premier trims will arrive with refreshed exterior details, including revisions to the front and rear lower fascias, new wheel designs, wheel moldings, and rockers.
