GM unveiled the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer in February, debuting the crossover’s the latest fifth model year. Now, we’re taking another look at the 2023 Chevy Blazer finished in head-turning Nitro Yellow Metallic paint with the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
Captured on the floor of the 2022 North American International Auto Show, also known as the Detroit Auto Show, the bright Nitro Yellow Metallic paint (paint code GCP) certainly makes an impression, especially in conjunction with the black trim and body components. For reference, Nitro Yellow Metallic paint is an optional extra that costs $395, and is only available on the sporty RS trim level. Additionally, Nitro Yellow Metallic paint must be optioned in conjunction with a black-painted roof, which costs $550, bringing the grand total for this specific hue to $945.
The striking yellow finish complements refreshed exterior styling, with the 2023 Chevy Blazer introducing a new front bumper design, as well as new LED headlights and daytime running lights. Completing the updated front fascia is an updated grille design, while in the corners, the crossover is offered with a selection of 18-inch, 20-inch, and 21-inch wheel designs. This particular example is running the optional 21-inch High Gloss Black wheels with machined face, a $1,000 upgrade.
As for what’s under the hood, the 2023 Chevy Blazer offers two powertrain options, starting with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine. Equipped as standard on 2LT, 3LT, and Premier trim levels, the 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine is rated at 228 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque. The 2023 Chevy Blazer is also available with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, which is standard for the RS trim (the model featured here) and optional for 3LT and Premier trim levels. Output from the 3.6L V6 LGX is set at 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.
The GM 9-speed automatic transmission is standard across the board. Under the skin, the 2023 Chevy Blazer rides on the GM C1 platform, with production for the North American market taking place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
