As GM Authority previously covered, the Cadillac Lyriq was the first GM vehicle this decade to boast heated windshield wipers, a feature GMA has been wishing for since 2011. Now, we’ve learned that the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV offers a similar option.
Officially named Heater Wiper Park (RPO code CMO), this optional feature works in the same way as it does on the Lyriq, with a defroster keeping the base of the windshield heated for when the wiper blades are in the “parked” position. As for available, the Heated Wiper Park feature is included in and only available with the RS Convenience and Driver Confidence Package (RPO code ZL5), which is offered on RS RWD and RS AWD trims. The feature is not available at all on the 2LT trim.
For reference, the RS Convenience and Driver Confidence Package includes the following (relevant RPO code in parenthesis):
- Head-Up Display (UV6)
- Heated rear outboard passenger seat cushions (KCB)
- Rear Camera Mirror (DRZ)
- Heated Wiper Park (CMO)
As a reminder, the Chevy Blazer EV rides on the GM BEV3 platform – which it shares with the Chevy Equinox EV and Cadillac Lyriq, among others – and is motivated by GM Ultium Drive motor and GM Ultium battery technologies.
Production of the 2024 Blazer EV kicked off in June 2023 at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico. Notably, the facility was pumping out 65 units of the all-electric crossover every hour as of July 2023. Production of the 2025 model year is currently scheduled to commence on June 3rd, 2024.
