The 2022 Chevy Blazer will be $200 more expensive going forward.
Like it did with the 2022 Chevy Camaro earlier this month, GM has raised the destination freight charge for the 2022 Chevy Blazer by $200 from $1,195 to $1,395. This will, in effect, make the Blazer $200 more expensive across the board regardless of the trim level chosen.
The Chevy Blazer isn’t the only GM vehicle to have received a destination charge increase, with the Chevy Camaro, Corvette, Equinox, Express, Malibu, Suburban, Tahoe, Traverse and Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD also the recent recipients of similar changes.

The refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer introduces mild styling revisions to the front and rear fasciae, including reshaped LED daytime running lamps, different taillights, a new grille design, new wheel designs and a different exhaust treatment. Several new exterior colors will also be added to the Blazer’s order books for the 2023MY, including Fountain Blue, Sterling Gray Metallic, Copper Bronze Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat. Inside, the crossover has received a new 10-inch diagonal color touchscreen, which is standard across all trim levels.
Under the hood, the 2023 Chevy Blazer features the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, which is rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, as well as the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, which is rated at 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Under its newly restyled body panels, the mid-size crossover rides on the GM C1 platform.
