- chevy is updating the blazer lineup for 2022 with new colors and options.
- there's no more base l model, meaning a turbo 2.0-liter four is the new standard engine.
- a 308-hp 3.6-liter v-6 is optional on lt and premier models and standard on the rs.
the chevy blazer enters 2022 with a few more color options and one fewer engine choice. the base l model is no longer part of the lineup, meaning its 193-hp naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four isn't offered anymore. a 228-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four now serves as the base powertrain, with a 308-hp 3.6-liter v-6 available as an option.
the 2022 blazer lineup now starts off with the 2lt, which has the 2.0t engine, front-wheel drive, and a nine-speed automatic. the better-equipped 3lt offers the v-6 as an option, as does the loaded premier (pictured in silver), which looks a bit different this year thanks to some exterior trim updates. all-wheel drive is an option for all trim levels.
the sporty-ish rs comes standard with the v-6 and offers a new two-tone paint option with a black roof (pictured in red). this two-tone look is also newly optional with certain appearance packages on the lt. other new color options include nitro yellow metallic and blue glow metallic, but chevy has yet to release photos of those hues.
we also don't have pricing for the 2022 blazer yet, but we expect its base price to go up considerably. the 2021 blazer l started at $29,995 but the 2022 model's base price should be closer to the 2021 blazer lt's $34,595 starting cost.
