GM unveiled the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV on July 18th, 2022, pulling the sheets on a fresh battery-powered crossover with several different trim levels and configurations on offer. Now, GM Authority is taking things one step further with the following Chevy Blazer EV Z71 rendering.
As it stands, GM has announced four trim levels for the new Chevy Blazer EV, listed from bottom to top as the 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS. While trim like the RS and SS add performance and street style to the Blazer EV nameplate, an off-road-oriented trim is conspicuously absent from the lineup.
Enter our new Chevy Blazer EV Z71 rendering. We should mention right from the outset that, for now, GM has no known plans to actually produce a Chevy Blazer EV Z71 trim level. Rather, we created this rendering simply to see what such a model might look like.
With that covered, let’s look over the rendering. The exterior incorporates the latest Chevy Blazer EV styling with broad, horizontal lighting signatures across the front fascia and deep line cuts front to back, creating a geometric, technical aesthetic that communicates the vehicle’s modern battery-driven drivetrain.
To this, our Z71 rendering adds in all the usual off-road goodies. Chief among these is an elevated ride height, as well as a set of off-road tires for a set of split-five-spoke wheels. The front end is also equipped with a set of red tow hooks, while Z71 badging confirms the model’s rough-stuff intentions. To note, we declined to change the shape of the front and rear bumpers, as the Z71 trim levels typically don’t include such changes.
With its black and red exterior color treatment, including the two-tone roof, the Chevy Blazer EV Z71 looks long and tall, while we can imagine the off-roader taking cues from the GMC Hummer EV with regard to electron-powered adventuring tech.
Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available for the Chevy Blazer EV drivetrain, but obviously, our Blazer EV Z71 would be available exclusively with all-wheel drive.
