New 2023 Chevrolet Blazer ( Overview ). – HIGHS
Fiercely styled for an SUV, smooth ride on standard 18-inch wheels, cargo area and rear seat are spacious.
Some cheap interior bits, no hybrid option to boost fuel economy, pricier than nicer rivals.
The Blazer has sporty styling, but it falls short of rivals in terms of quality and value.
The Blazer isn’t the off-road scrambler you may remember from years ago. Today’s Blazer is better suited to on-road performance with its sharp handling and well-damped ride. There’s a cost, however, for its showstopping Camaro-like design: Rear headroom is severely compromised, and utility is limited given its small cargo capacity.
Refined ride quality
Agile handling for an SUV
Infotainment system is attractive and easy to use
Strong optional V6 engine
Compromised headroom for rear passengers
Lower max cargo capacity than several rivals

Part of the first Blazer generation introduced for 2019
After a few years on the market, the Chevrolet Blazer gets a new look for 2023. Its nose is a little leaner, the front grille is more windswept and the squinty headlights are slightly … well, more squinty. There are also significant upgrades inside the Blazer, including a 10-inch touchscreen that comes standard on every version. The Blazer has built a commendable reputation since this most recent generation debuted in 2019, and these improvements aim to keep it fresh for at least a few more years.
