Chevrolet promises to reshape the SUV landscape again with the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer. The Blazer symbolizes American innovation and versatility because of its bold design, impressive performance, and legacy dating back to the late 60s. As we look ahead to the sixth model year, we expect the Camaro-inspired crossover to get minor changes and updates after its recent 2023 refresh. Read on as our Huffines Chevrolet team in Plano, Texas, delves into what you need to know about the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer. We’ll explore any predicted changes in design, performance capabilities, technology, and driving experience.
What’s New for 2024?
Since Chevy redesigned the Blazer last year, we don’t expect major changes for the 2024 model. Potential buyers can expect a similar chiseled exterior and bold front grille to the reimagined 2023 Blazer. The only change to the sporty facade of the base model from previous Chevrolet models is the new Riptide Blue Metallic color option. The 2024 Blazer 2LT all-wheel drive (AWD) will receive a larger 17.7-inch infotainment touch screen than the standard 10.2-inch screen and pair with an 11-inch driver display. Depending on the trim and package you choose, you can enjoy perks like Evotex seats, a heated steering wheel, heated side mirrors, and heated front seats.
The available adaptive cruise control and wireless phone charging are also new. The RS AWD trim will feature black Chevy bowties, a black grille, a new fascia, and plenty of modern conveniences. These include 20-inch wheels, an upgrade on the base levels’ standard 18-inch wheels. It has ventilated front seating, rain-sensing heated windshield wipers, seal-sealing tires, and a head-up display. Heated rear seats are available on the RS and Premier trims. The RS rear-wheel-drive trim gets the addition of an eight-speaker Bose audio system. Besides the 2024 gasoline models, Chevy plans to release an all-electric model delivering 320 miles of driving range.
Comfort and Convenience
The Blazer offers a comfortable driving experience for a modern midsize SUV. It boasts a roomy interior with soft-touch plastics and ambient interior lighting to set the scene. Two rows of seats for passengers make this SUV ideal for families. Both drivers and front-seat passengers can enjoy bolstered front seats for support even on longer drives. While the back seats lack this padding, they offer a comfortable angle and adequate headroom for those under 6 feet. An array of seat and steering wheel adjustments ensures the driver’s seat suits you.
Sophisticated LED daytime running lamps and bold taillamps are additional driving conveniences. These come standard with all trim levels of the Chevrolet Blazer. Add to that an intuitive climate-control system, and you have a vehicle that makes driving in all kinds of weather possible and enjoyable. The SUV also has a generous cargo area, with 64.2 cubic feet of space. For ease of hauling, you can take advantage of the 60/40 second-row split-folding seat and sliding rear seats.
Even the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer’s base level stands out in performance. It delivers responsive acceleration and precise handling, especially for an SUV of its size. Four Blazer trims offer either a 228-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or a 308-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine. All come with a nine-speed automatic transmission. While the four-cylinder engine is sufficient for everyday driving, the V-6 is where the Blazer shines. It can reach 60 miles per hour in just 6.6 seconds, an impressive feat for a vehicle of this size.
One of its most remarkable features is its agile handling, especially when taking turns. Even at 191.88 inches long, the SUV boasts a noticeably controlled body roll when cornering. The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer also comes with a suite of connectivity features. You can connect up to seven devices to the available high-speed Wi-Fi hotspot and control various vehicle features with your voice. Stay connected using the myChevrolet Mobile App or the standard 10.2-inch touch screen. The latter features a user-friendly interface and high-quality graphics.
Enjoy standard Chevy Safety Assist, a comprehensive package of six advanced driver aids. All these features work together to keep you safe on the road, minimizing the risk of accidents. Forward collision alert will activate an alarm if you approach an obstacle in front of you at speed. Automatic emergency braking and front pedestrian braking are ideal for preventing collisions with pedestrians. Lane-keep assist with lane departure warning is another handy feature that alerts you if you start drifting. It gently shifts the steering wheel to keep you in your lane.
The rear seat reminder alert is handy if you travel with young children. A following distance indicator, IntelliBeam high beam assist, and a rearview camera provide peace of mind on the road. If safety is a bigger priority, you can upgrade to enjoy additional safety features, including adaptive cruise control, OnStar Safety & Security coverage, and lane change alert with side blind-zone alert. A safety alert seat vibrates to let you know when the advanced safety systems, such as the parking sensors and available blind-spot warning, activate.
Enjoy the thrill of the open road with more than reasonable Blazer mpg ratings. The EPA estimates the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer to deliver 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. This fuel efficiency rating is for the base model four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. It estimates that the AWD version will drop the highway estimate to 27 mpg. Opt for the 3.6-liter V-6 engine, and you can expect 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
