2024 Chevy Blazer EV Debuts As Upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E Rival

Back in February, General Motors revealed the refreshed 2023 Chevy Blazer, a revised version of the model that revived a beloved name from the automaker’s past back in 2019 – albeit in the form of a Camaro-like crossover, not the old, off-road-oriented SUV. However, roughly a month later, GM teased an all-electric version of the Blazer, which in this case was a higher-performance SS variant. Now, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV has officially been revealed as a proper Ford Mustang Mach-E rival in the mid-size electric crossover segment.

The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV will be available in a variety of trims including 1LT, 2LT, RS, and the automaker’s first-ever all-electric SS performance model, as well as a Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) model for police and other fleet applications. The crossover will be available in front-, rear-, and all-wheel drive configurations, with an estimated driving range that tops out as high as 320 miles, depending on trim.

Like GM’s other EV models, the all-electric Blazer is built on the automaker’s Ultium platform and is equipped with an 11.5 kW onboard AC charging module, as well as DC fast-charging capability of up to 190 kW. At the latter speeds, this enables the Blazer EV to add 78 miles of range in around 10 minutes.

While it hasn’t shared full powertrain details yet, GM did note that the SS variant of the Blazer EV will produce 557 horsepower and up to 648 pound-feet of torque, while a WOW (Wide Open Watts) mode will enable it to go from 0-60 miles-per-hour in less than four seconds. The PPV variant of the Blazer EV is also based on the SS and will be available in either rear- or all-wheel drive configurations, the latter with dual electric motors.

Inside the cabin, the Blazer SS features a 17.7-inch-infotainment touchscreen and an 11-inch Driver Information Center in the instrument cluster, along with soft touch materials, available Super Cruise, Reverse Automatic Braking, and Advanced Park Assist.

The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV 2LT and RS trims are scheduled to go on sale in the summer of 2023 with prices starting at $47,595 and $51,995, respectively. The SS will launch later in 2023 with an MSRP of $65,995, followed by the 1LT at $44,995, and the PPV fleet model in Q1 2024. Reservations for the new all-electric crossover are open now at Chevy’s official site.

      There is no pillar behind the windshield. I bet you are uglier than the Blazer!

      Competition in this field is healthy. I expct this to force Ford to lower Mach-E prices

        Open your eyes Ford Owner? There is a small pillar similar to the quarter windows in the
        pre 1960/70’s cars. “I bet you are uglier than the Blazer!” > Perhaps you should grow up & try acting your age instead of “that” childish brain level mentality your projecting now, or is too late.?

        Why would this force Ford to drop Mach-E prices? Ford has never played the “race to the bottom” games.

    looks like the mitsubishi eclipse…cross over conversion. Definitely not camaro-like. Has the price tag of a high performance vehicle though. i wonder if this crossover evolution bubble is going to ever pop.

    The “pillar”, actually a window track has to be there because if the window went all the way to the A pillar you couldn’t lower it. It wouldn’t clear that ridiculous looking scoop in the door. IMHO this is one ugly machine.

    EV’s just cost too much. 48K starting, are they crazy? Ford keep making Maverick’s.
    Maybe a Maverick EV which costs 35k. Cheap and practical. But FORD can’t because you do not control the price of your batteries. BIG mistake as the Chinese are coming.

    Somewhat attractive, with the exception of the styling feature behind the front wheels. That’s a head scratcher. Mach E still more attractive.

    Don’t like it. Too many Body Lines, and Whooptedoos, The Infotainment screen is “Ok” but too LONG. The Price Point starting at $48K??? That’s as Much as Something more Usable, but People are gonna buy it no doubt. Just won’t be us…
