Explore This 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV Test Drive Report

Chevrolet has increased its electric vehicle range with the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV, a midsize, two-row electric-powered SUV.

The Blazer EV is constructed on GM’s BEV3 platform, also utilized for the new 2024 Cadillac Lyriq EV. While the Blazer EV shares many specifications with the Lyriq, its appearance differs. It exhibits a family resemblance to the internal combustion engine (ICE) Blazer, although the EV is longer. Initially offered in base LT and mid-level RS trim, a more potent SS model will be introduced later.

The LT and RS models are available with either all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive LT and RS deliver 288 horsepower and 333 pound-feet of torque, while the rear-wheel-drive RS features 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. The SS model, providing 557 horsepower and 648 pound-feet of torque, delivers even more power. The LT and all-wheel-drive RS have a range of 279 miles, while the rear-wheel-drive RS and all-wheel-drive SS come with a larger 102-kWh battery, affording the RS a range of 324 miles. The range of the SS has not yet been disclosed.

The Blazer EV’s all-wheel-drive system has a front-wheel-drive inclination, whereas the SS features substantial motors on both axles. The RS offers GM’s SuperCruise autonomous driving system as an alternative and comes as standard on the SS.

The rear-wheel-drive RS model is recommended for its performance advantage and exhilarating driving experience. Its broad stance and low battery weight contribute to assured cornering with minimal body lean. The ride is calm and sophisticated, and the interior is spacious. However, the front seats are remarked to be flat and under-bolstered for a sporty vehicle.

The Blazer EV showcases a contemporary instrument panel with circular air vents, a generous infotainment system, and an 11-inch digital instrument cluster. Despite its impressive technology package and solid performance, the initial prices of $57,710 for the LT AWD and $60,215 for the RS AWD may appear high for a Chevrolet, particularly when compared to the similarly-sized Cadillac Lyriq EV, which commences at $58,590.

Overall, the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV emerges as a compelling option, especially considering its qualification for the $7,500 federal EV tax credit. It undeniably holds its ground as a potential rival to the Cadillac Lyriq EV.
