The upcoming 2024 Chevy Blazer will serve as the sixth model year of the current midsize crossover model. Set to introduce just a handful of changes over the refreshed 2023 Blazer, GM Authority has now learned when the 2024 Blazer will begin production.
Sources close to the matter tell us that the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Chevy Blazer is currently scheduled to kick off on July 10th, 2023 at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico. Meanwhile, production of the 2023 Blazer will end on July 8th, 2023.
As a reminder, the Blazer received a mid-cycle refresh for the 2023 model year that included updated front and rear fascias, as well as a revised trim lineup. The front fascia now features a restyled front bumper with restyled Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and LED headlights, along with a revised grille design. The rear fascia, meanwhile, features tweaked taillights. From a trim standpoint, the entry-level Blazer L and LT trims are no longer offered.
The refreshed Blazer also received a few minor updates related to safety tech with the addition of Adaptive Cruise Control availability to 2LT and 3LT trim levels. In addition, the Chevy Safety Assist package is now standard across the model range, which includes popular safety technologies like Automatic Emergency Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and IntelliBeam automatic high beams.
In regards to powertrain options, the turbocharged 2.0L LSY I4 gasoline engine is standard on 2LT, 3LT and Premier trim levels, and produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The naturally aspirated 3.6L LGX V6 gasoline engine – which is standard on the RS trim and available as an option on the 3LT and Premier trim levels – is rated at 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Both powerplants are mated to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission; FWD is standard and AWD is optional.
