Just a year after the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer’s world debut and its announcement for the Middle East market, General Motors has just introduced Chevrolet‘s refreshed midsize crossover to countries in that region.
The refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer finally arrives in the Middle East after receiving a mild, but notable mid-cycle refresh that encompasses several cosmetic tweaks and an enhanced technology offering that will bolster its appeal to customers in the region. As such, the Middle East becomes the first market outside of the American continent where the updated 2023 Blazer is officially launched.
“The Chevrolet Blazer is a beloved nameplate across the Middle East, carving out a niche for the driver looking to transition to a practical, family car without having to compromise on sporty style and performance,” said Communications Director GM Africa & Middle East, Ronald Balit. “Refreshed for 2023, the Blazer levels up on technology that comes as standard and doubles down on the athletic looks and performance offered with the RS trim,” he added.
Similar to other emerging markets where the model has been launched such as Mexico and Colombia, the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer has arrived in Southwest Asian countries exclusively in sporty RS trim. This marketing strategy reinforces the Blazer’s distinctive positioning as a practical crossover with sporty styling cues inspired by the iconic Chevy Camaro‘s design.
Mechanically, the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer will be offered in the Middle East with the naturally aspirated 3.6L LGX V6 engine developing 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, still mated to the GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission. The sole engine choice is complemented by FWD and AWD options.
The refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer is now available for sale at Chevrolet’s official dealer network in the Middle East, offering an upgraded standard equipment package that includes a new 10.25-inch infotainment system touchscreen, a Bose Premium audio system and the Chevy Safety Assist suite of active safety features. Pricing and all the details of the 2023 Blazer for each country in the region can be found on Chevrolet Arabia page.
