The 2023 Chevy Blazer will arrive as the fifth model year for the crossover nameplate, debuting a model refresh consisting of refinements to the exterior and the interior. Notably, the 2023 Chevy Blazer will introduce a refreshed exterior paint options list as well, with five paint options no longer offered for the 2023 model year.
According to GM Authority sources, the five following exterior paint options will be dropped from the Chevy Blazer lineup with the departure of the 2022 model year (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
- Pewter Metallic (GFR)
- Iron Gray Metallic (GIV)
- Cayenne Orange Metallic (GLL)
- Cherry Red Tintcoat (GSK)
With regard to availability for the 2022 model year, Pewter Metallic was only available for the Chevy Blazer Premier trim level, Iron Gray was available on all trims except RS, and Cayenne Orange was only available on 2LT and 3LT trims. Pricing for Cayenne Orange was $395, while Cherry Red cost an extra $495.
Meanwhile, the above-listed five exterior paint options will be replaced with three new hues with the debut of the 2023 Chevy Blazer, including:
- Copper Bronze Metallic (GLY)
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (GNT)
- Sterling Gray Metallic (GXD)
Back in March, GM Authority reported that the Cayenne Orange paint option has been built out for the remainder of the 2022 model year, while earlier in May, GM Authority reported that an additional three exterior colors had been built out for the 2022 model year, including Silver Ice Metallic, Pewter Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat.
As a reminder, the Chevy Blazer is currently offered with two engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 228 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm, as well as the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower at 6,700 rpm and 270 pound-feet of torque at 5,000 rpm. Under the body panels, the Chevy Blazer crossover rides on the GM C1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
