General Motors resurrected the Chevy Blazer nameplate for the 2019 model year as an all-new midsize crossover, with a mid-cycle refresh dropping in for the 2023 model year. However, looking ahead, it’s uncertain if GM will even make a 2025 Chevy Blazer.
The reasoning behind this can be distilled down to two points, the first of which is where the ICE-based Blazer is produced.
For those readers who may be unaware, the ICE-based Blazer crossover is produced at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico, which, as GM Authority covered early last year, will be converted to full-time EV production this year.
For the moment, GM Authority has yet to hear any plans to move production of the ICE-based Blazer to any other plant. Which brings us to the second point – order cycles.
The final order cycle for the 2024 Blazer began yesterday, January 25th, 2024. For the moment, there appears to be no path to order a 2025 Blazer – at least not yet.
We should also consider the fact that with an initial launch for the 2019 model year, the ICE-based Blazer crossover is now six years old, which is roughly the entire life cycle for the previous-generation GM ICE programs.
Putting it all together, it certainly looks as though GM may not even produce a 2025 Blazer at all. However, as dire as that sounds, it could actually work out just fine given the fact that the all-electric Blazer EV is already a part of the nameplate’s portfolio.

As a reminder, the current ICE-based Blazer offers two engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine and the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine. The GM C1 platform provides the underpinnings.
