Electric vehicles are gaining popularity, and while there are still hesitant buyers out there, EVs are here to stay. Brands like Chevy are helping to get more people on board with this evolving trend by creating vehicles that perform just as efficiently as gasoline vehicles, and sometimes even better. This is the case for the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV. Chevy’s new model offers more than just standard safety features with a 557 horsepower rating and 648 lb-ft of torque––more than any other gas-powered Blazer before it.
Performance isn’t all that the new Blazer EV has to offer. It’s also a very tech-packed vehicle that offers familiar and brand-new tech and safety technologies, including standard Chevy Safety Assist, hands-free driving, and hands-free start. The best part? This new EV comes with GM’s Utilifi technology which will allow the vehicle to receive post-purchase tech updates. Potential updates include everything from new apps to upgraded services. The new Blazer EV makes it clear that what we once thought of as the future is now the present, and it’s better than we could have imagined.
EV performance doesn’t mean you’re taking a downgrade from gasoline-powered engines. In fact, electric engines can provide even more horsepower and torque than their gas counterparts. The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV SS produces 249 more horsepower and 378 more lb-ft of torque than the 2022 Chevy Blazer’s most powerful engine. This is what allows the Blazer EV to go from 0 to 60 in less than four seconds. Despite its power, the SS trim can still travel up to 290 miles on a full charge.
You also get to choose from three different drive systems––all-wheel drive (AWD), front-wheel drive (FWD), and rear-wheel drive (RWD). The RWD feature wasn’t present on the 2022 Chevy Blazer and is exclusive to the 2024 Blazer EV model. Thanks to Regen On Demand and One Pedal Driving, the Blazer EV can go as much as 320 miles on one full charge.
This system works with the One Pedal Driving system. It allows drivers to stop their vehicle without using a brake pedal. When they let up on the acceleration, regenerative braking kicks in to recharge the battery using the energy from stopping the vehicle that would otherwise have just been lost. Studies show that technologies like Regen on Demand can lead to a 20% EV range improvement.
You can charge your Chevy Blazer EV at home or at public charging stations. Luckily, the Blazer EV is available with the Dual Level Charge Cord. This means that you can charge it with a regular wall outlet or a 240-volt outlet using just one cord. Whether you’re comfortable at home or visiting a friend, the Blazer can be charged from anywhere. Level 1 charging is at 120 volts and takes longer. If you only have a 120-volt charger, that can work, but it takes several hours, and it is best to charge the Blazer overnight. Level 2 charging happens at 240 volts and takes more electricity, but it charges at a quicker rate.
You can also utilize DC Fast Charging when you are on the go, which is the fastest way to get some power. There are over 40,000 charging stations spread across the country, and the myChevrolet app with Energy Assist makes it easier to track them down. When using these charging stations, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV can gain up to 78 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
No vehicle is more tech-friendly than an EV. Electrification doesn’t stop at the motor. The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV offers more technology features than the regular Chevy Blazer––this includes a large, 17.7-inch driver display screen. Let’s look at all the technologies this new EV has to offer.
At first glance, the term “hands-free” can be off-putting when driving is the subject. However, Chevy makes hands-free driving comfortable and reliable with Super Cruise. It monitors driver alertness and only allows you to drive hands-free if you’re paying attention to your surroundings. This technology isn’t equal to self-driving. Instead, it removes the laborious part of driving, using the steering and using the gas or brake, to give you a bit of a break.
The hands-free start system is a brand-new feature that allows drivers to start the vehicle without even turning a key or pushing a button. The Blazer EV will start as long as you have your key fob in the cab. All you have to do is have the key fob within the vehicle, tap the brake, and you’re ready to drive.
The only wires you require are the ones for your EV’s plug-in battery charger. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and even smart device charging are all wireless in the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV. Make phone calls, ask for directions, or change the music via simple voice commands. View maps or your Apple CarPlay/Android Auto displays on the Blazer’s 17.7-inch infotainment screen.
Safety technologies are important for all drivers, which is why Chevy makes sure to add no-cost and low-cost safety features. In the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV, drivers can enjoy a suite of six standard safety features, plus advanced safety add-ons for enhanced protection.
The 2022 Chevy Blazer EV comes with standard Chevy Safety Assist. This driver assistance suite includes the following six features:
Automatic Emergency Braking – Uses cameras to determine if a potential collision is imminent. It can enhance hard braking and automatically stop the Blazer when necessary.
These features are standard no matter which trim level you choose.
Advanced safety features are available for an additional price. These are some of Chevy’s most up-to-date safety features, including the following:
As you can see, the Blazer EV offers several safety features, both standard and optional, that help drivers feel safe and secure on the road.
The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV comes in four different available trim levels. These include the 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS trims. Each trim comes with its own perks. The base level may be sufficient for some, while others will consider upgrading to a higher trim level. That said, even the base model includes plenty of safety and technology features.
The base-level 1LT trim offers the lowest driving range at 247 miles, and it’s only available in FWD. It comes with 19-inch wheels, an 11-inch Driver Information Center, and a 17.7-inch diagonal touch screen display. It, of course, also includes standard Chevy Safety Assist’s six driver assistance features.
The 2LT trim goes a bit further thanks to its 293-mile driving range. It’s available in FWD and eAWD. Super Cruise hands-free driving becomes available on this trim level, as well as advanced safety feature add-ons like Reverse Automatic Braking and Advanced Park Assist.
Sporty drivers will love the RS trim for its interior and exterior designs. It has larger standard 19-inch wheels. The RS trim also introduces the RWD option and matches Chevy’s RS aesthetic with a black-painted grille and black lower fascia. This is also the trim that offers up to 320 miles of range.
Finally, the highest-level SS trim offers a 290-mile driving range and can go from 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds. Wide Open Watts mode allows it to reach a max of 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque. You also get heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats.
