On February 8th, General Motors officially revealed the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer as a world premiere from the United States, anticipating the imminent launch in the local market and its subsequent arrival in the rest of the international markets. Now, the automaker has just announced the updated 2023 Blazer for the Middle East.
GM’s regional subsidiary has officially announced that the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer will arrive in the Middle East early next year, several months after its expected rollout in North America during the summer of 2022. As such, Southwestern Asian countries will be among the first in the world to receive the Chevrolet‘s updated midsize crossover.
The 2023 Chevy Blazer represents the fifth model year of the fifth-generation Blazer that was first unveiled on June 21st, 2018 in Detroit, which will seek to appeal to a larger number of customers in the Middle East with its new styling and enhanced features. Since its local launch in mid-2019, the current Chevy Blazer has won over the region’s public and press with its bold Camaro-inspired design.
In fact, GM Middle East & Africa claims that the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer is aimed squarely at satisfying the main preferences of regional customers, who are particularly looking for utility vehicles with a good mix of style, performance and technology. And that’s just what the new 2023 Blazer offers, with a revised exterior design that includes a more aggressive front end with a new grille, even slimmer daytime running lamps and revised LED headlights.
In addition, the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer improves the model’s performance in the Middle East with a more powerful base powertrain comprised of the turbocharged 2.0L LSY I-4 engine producing 228 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque, while the range-topping 3.6L LGX V6 remains available. Inside, the Blazer receives a standard 10-inch touchscreen, the latest Chevrolet infotainment system and a more advanced package of active safety systems.
The refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer will officially launch in the Middle East in the first quarter of next year, with units continuing to be imported from the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico that builds the crossover for the vast majority of international markets except China. Full details on the specific configuration of the 2023 Blazer for that region will be revealed at a later date.
