For the 2023 model year, the Chevy Blazer received a mid-cycle refresh that featured updated styling cues and a new infotainment layout. Now, for the upcoming model year, the 2024 Chevy Blazer is set to introduce standard heated front seats across all trim levels.
Previously, the driver and front passenger heated seat (RPO code KA1) option was included and only available as part of the Convenience Package (RPO code ZL3) on the base 2LT trim level. Altogether, this Convenience Package included (relevant RPO code in parenthesis):
- Adaptive Cruise Control (KSG)
- Universal Home Remote (UG1)
- Wireless Charging (K4C)
- Power programmable liftgate (TB5)
- Black roof-mounted side rails (V59)
- Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (UGN)
- Auto-dimming inside rearview mirror (DD8)
It’s worth noting that the KA1 option was previously equipped as standard fare on 3LT, RS and Premier trim levels.
In other 2024 Blazer news, the Bow Tie brand’s midsize crossover is set to feature a new paint color. Tagged with color code GJV, Riptide Blue Metallic will actually replace the Blue Glow Metallic (color code GHT) hue, which itself was introduced on the 2022 Blazer. In fact, the latter paint color has already been built out for the 2023 Blazer, and is no longer available to be ordered.
As a reminder, the Chevy Blazer is offered with two powerplant choices, including the turbocharged 2.0L LSY I4 gasoline engine, rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, and the naturally aspirated 3.6L LGX V6 gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Notably, the LSY engine is standard on the 2LT, 3LT and Premier trim levels, while the LGX engine is standard on the RS and available as an option on the 3LT and Premier trims.
Under the skin, the Blazer rides on the GM C1 platform. Production of the 2024 Blazer is currently scheduled to kick off on July 10th, 2023 at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico, while production of the current 2023 Blazer will end on July 8th, 2023.
