2023 Chevy Blazer Refresh Spied With Minor Changes17
The refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer was just spotted testing on public roads in light camo, giving us a look at the crossover’s forthcoming update.
This particular 2023 Chevy Blazer prototype is the range-topping Premier trim finished in black paint with black-and-white camo to obscure the revised styling underneath. The most impactful updates can be found up front, where the 2023 Chevy Blazer boasts a new front fascia, including revisions to the grille and lighting elements.
The new grille incorporates a series of horizontal slats, including two thin upper slats and a more prominent lower slat. The outer edges of the bumper are new as well, with a more square surface treatment compared to the angular design of the current model.
The lighting changes consist of the same two-tiered layout up front, but with revisions to the upper LED signatures / running lights that mimic those of the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and 2022 Bolt EUV, providing styling continuity for the Chevy brand. The main headlights continue to be placed below the DRLs, but feature a fresh projector-beam treatment.
No changes can be found on the body side, but the rear does have a few nips and tucks. For instance, the 2023 Chevy Blazer will feature new taillights with (what appears to be) a more subdued design compared to the current model, at least for this Premier trim. Note the white reversing lights lower in the taillight clusters, closer to the license plate cutout.
There’s also a change to the exhaust treatment, with the refreshed model featuring a through-fascia configuration.
Though we don’t have shots of the cabin, we do expect the refreshed model to feature updates to the interior, including the introduction of better materials throughout the cabin. We also expect a larger infotainment screen plus an improved center stack design reminiscent of (if not identical to) what’s used in the three-row Blazer model exclusive to the Chinese-market.
GM Authority sources tell us that the Blazer was originally set for a refresh for the 2022 model year, but due to delays stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the refresh was pushed back by a single model year. As a result, the 2023 Chevy Blazer will introduce the nameplate’s refresh.
The Chevy Blazer nameplate was reintroduced for the 2019 model year as a fresh midsize crossover model, slotting in between the compact Chevy Equinox and full-size Chevy Traverse in Chevrolet’s lineup. Since its introduction, the new Blazer has performed quite well, becoming one of the best-selling models in its segment.
We’ll bring you further coverage of the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer as we get it. Until then, make sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevy Blazer news, Chevy news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.

I know it will not happen but one can only hope….wish GM would utilize better interior materials and a much Bigger Infotainment screen.
Totally agree. Leave the exterior alone. It’s not the problem. Copying the Camaro’s interior was. Fix that. And make it a better value.
Well they can’t fix the issues with the exterior in a refresh. Destined for a few more years of awkward.
The tail pipes are also in cut outs in the rear bumper as well now. Previous years, the tail pipes are below the bumper.
The interior also needs some updates. The upper door sills need soft touch materials. I also think the AC vents need to be repositioned so it not blowing on the knees and a larger touchscreen to match the competition.
Sell the 3-row in N. America.
Let me guess, little gm decontented it more and raised the price for the Lectrics.
They better give the blazer a bigger infotainment screen/system . 10inches or better
It will probably get a bigger and better screen and interior…But don’t expect Buick luxury in a Chevy! Remember Chevy is a value brand in America, also the three row blazer is sold in China because they don’t have a Traverse in China besides do we really need another three row crossover in America? The Blazer is fine as a two row crossover!
Funny David K you want GM to make a K5 Blazer that won’t sell and waste product, time, and development costs… You know GM is a car company and even though you don’t like the new Blazer it sells in big numbers and is profitable for GM. The days of building a car just to build it are long gone that is one of the reasons why GM, Chrysler and Ford where in trouble back in 2009 with bankruptcy and I hate to say this but I have owned 1990’s and early 2000’s GM products and they where where absolute garbage engine valve taps, cheap mouse fur seat fabric, rubber maid dash boards, interior trim pieces that would fall off, Pontiac grand am body cladding! So in my opinion the new GM is much better then the old GM I happen to own a 2010 Chevy equinox LTZ V6 and I love it my wife has a 2019 Buick Enclave and I would take these two cars over anything the old GM made. So the way I see it the old GM rushed much more then the new GM to get vehicles to market case and point my 2002 Camaro Z28 had a recall on both catalytic converters that should not have happened.
Well, the fact that matching Honda in quality of materials and Hyundai/Kia in design and tech threatens the “Buick luxury” for some GM fans is exactly the problem. GM has conditioned their hardcore fans to think soft touch plastics and competitively sized screens are reserved for “luxury”. (And Buick isn’t luxury)
I will never buy a GM made in Mexico product like this blazer.
Make it in the USA Mary Barra
Then GM retired can let the Mexicans come and take our jobs…It is actually a good thing that certain vehicles are manufactured in Mexico the jobs stay there! I guess GM retired didn’t like my 2002 Camaro Z28 made in Canada either… You have an outdated raciest way of thinking my friend!
How about bringing back the REAL Blazer.. K5. Not this cheap imitation of a badge. GM really needs to think about its design teams. The products being put out are not of quality. The materials, mechanical designs, and so forth are rushed, less care and frankly sub par to what should be. This is from a lifetime GM product only consumer. The last 2 GM vehicles I have owned have been poor. As a direction of how the company has gone and chooses to proceed is shown forth thru the recalls and lack of pride in GM. It really is a disheartening.
Disgusting excuse for a Blazer. Looks like every other crossover on the road today. Bring to market an off-road contender K5 Blazer to compete with the Wrangler and the new Bronco.
The new Bronco is butt ugly and is really an Escape under the skin…so it also is not a true Bronco like the full size Bronco or Bronco 2.
TBH they never stopped making the Bronco or K5 Blazer, they were rename Expedition and Tahoe. The Bronco you see now is a continuation of the BOF Explorer which replaced the Bronco II originally.
