For the 2021MY, the Chevy Blazer 2LT was offered as standard with the turbocharged 2.0L LSY four-cylinder engine, while the 3.6L LGX V6 was available for a price premium. This will change on the 2022 Chevy Blazer 2LT, however, which will drop the 3.6L LGX V6 engine option and only offer the 2.0L LSY.
From the 2022MY onward, the 3.6L LGX V6 engine will only be available with the RS, 3LT and Premier trims. The V6 engine will come standard on the RS and will be available to order in place of the standard 2.0L LSY with the 3LT and Premier.
The 3.6L LGX V6 engine is rated at 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque in the 2021 Chevy Blazer, where it is paired with a GM nine-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive. AWD is available as an option for a $2,000 price premium. The turbocharged 2.0L LSY base engine, meanwhile, is rated 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Like the V6, it is also only offered with a GM nine-speed automatic and comes standard with front-wheel drive.
GM will introduce a number of small changes and updates for the 2022 Chevy Blazer. This will include a new two-tone black roof paint option, revised exterior styling for the range-topping Premier trim, standard Chevy Safety Assist and increased towing capacity for 2.0L models from 1,500 pounds to 3,500 pounds. The 2022 Blazer will also ditch two paint options, Bright Blue Metallic and Midnight Blue Metallic, which will be indirectly replaced by two new exterior paint color options. Additionally, GM has decided to drop the base L and 1LT trim levels from the Blazer’s order books for 2022, while the Cargo Floor Rail System will no longer be offered, either.
