The 2023 Chevy Blazer is set to introduce a refresh for the crossover nameplate, updating the Blazer with revisions to the exterior and interior. Now, GM Authority has exclusively learned that General Motors will reveal the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer on Tuesday, February 8th.
GM Authority has previously featured spy shots of the 2023 Chevy Blazer in prototype form testing on public roads. Although the prototype in question was draped in light camouflage, we can still pick out some styling revisions set for introduction with the 2023-model-year refresh.
The most impactful of these changes is a new fascia for the crossover. As spotted previously, the 2023 Chevy Blazer will introduce a new grille and new lighting bits, with the former incorporating a series of horizontal slats, including two thin upper slats matched with a more prominent lower slat. The outer edges of the new bumper incorporate a more square surface treatment.
The lighting bits will once again leverage a two-tiered setup, with the upper lights incorporating thin LED signatures / running lights, and the lower lights providing the primary forward illumination.
The profile of the 2023 Chevy Blazer will not introduce any changes or updates, but the rear end will, with the model refresh debuting new taillights that appear to be slightly more subdued compared to the current model. The exhaust treatment is also new, with the upcoming model refresh introducing new integrated exhaust tips with a twin-pipe layout.
The 2023 Chevy Blazer is also expected to feature updates for the cabin space, including new, improved materials, a larger infotainment screen, and an updated center stack similar to (or perhaps identical to) that of the three-row Chevy Blazer offered for the Chinese market.
The current Chevy Blazer crossover was initially launched for the 2019 model year, and was originally set for a refresh with the 2022 model year. However, due to complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the model refresh was pushed back to the 2023 model year.
The powertrain will not be changed with the 2023-model-year refresh. As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Blazer is available with two engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine and the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine.
Under the skin is the GM C1 platform. Production takes place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico. It’s also worth mentioning that General Motors recently announced plans to offer an all-electric version of the vehicle based on the EV-centric BEV3 architecture.
