When General Motors officially revealed the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV back in July 2022, the high-performance Chevy Blazer EV SS variant was originally quoted as arriving sometime in the late 2023 calendar year. Now, this now longer appears to be the case.
According to the Chevrolet consumer website, the 2024 Blazer EV SS won’t become available before the spring of the 2024 calendar year. As of the time of this writing, there isn’t a clear reason as to why The General made this correction, although it’s worth noting that the $65,995 base starting MSRP – which includes the destination freight charge (DFC) – still stands.
For reference, the original launch cadence given during the 2024 Blazer EV reveal had the 2LT and RS trim levels arriving in Summer 2023. Meanwhile, the 1LT and PPV variants were expected to become available sometime in Q1 2024.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV SS stands apart from the Blazer EV lineup in terms of both design and performance. In regard to the former, the SS features a unique front grille, a two-tone exterior color scheme with a black roof and A-pillars, and standard 22-inch wheels. Meanwhile, on the inside, we find sueded microfiber seating with Adrenaline Red surfaces, or available Argon Orange interior upholstery accents, along with a standard 17.7-inch diagonal color touchscreen and standard 11-inch digital driver information cluster.
With output rated at 557 horsepower and 648 pound-feet of torque, GM Ultium battery and GM Ultium Drive motor technologies drive all four wheels. Under the skin, all Blazer EV variants ride on the GM BEV3 platform, while production takes place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
