The 2023 Chevy Blazer is slated to arrive as the fifth model year of the crossover nameplate, introducing a model refresh consisting of new front and rear fascias, among a few other changes and updates. Now, GM Authority is taking a closer look at the exterior differences between the 2023 Chevy Blazer and 2022 Chevy Blazer.
In this comparison, we’re comparing the RS trim levels for both model years, as that’s currently the only trim level officially revealed thus far. For those who may not know, the RS is designated as the sportier trim of the lineup, and features unique exterior styling that reflects that positioning.
Let’s start up front, where we find the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer introduces a new fascia. The corners of the front end show off revised daytime running lights that are longer and thinner than those on the preceding model year, while the headlight clusters in the sides of the fascia were revised as well. The grille is now larger with the 2023 model year, stretched across the nose with an hourglass shape and divided by a center styling line that connects the daytime running lights and houses the central Chevy Bow Tie badge.
The profile view looks familiar, with the same aggressive shoulder line and pumped-up fenders, as well as a two-tone roof treatment. In the corners, however, we see a new alloy wheel design, with multiple spokes and additional two-tone treatment.
Finally, the rear end updates the look with new taillight graphics, once again wrapping in from the fenders into the rear hatch.
It’s also worth mentioning the new interior changes, which include a new infotainment screen, and the addition of the Nightshift Blue interior colorway.
As a reminder, the Chevy Blazer is offered with two engine options, including GM’s turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine as standard in 2023 Blazer 2LT, 3LT and Premier trim levels, rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, as well as the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Both engines connect to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, with front-wheel drive as standard, and all-wheel drive optional.
