Chevy’s Blazer EV SS delayed until next year, Blazer EV on track

If you were waiting to get your hands on the Chevy’s first high-performance “SS” EV trim, the 2024 Blazer EV SS, you will have to wait a little longer.

General Motors (GM) introduced the electric version of arguably its most iconic SUV nameplate at CES 2022.

The Blazer EV will be Chevy’s first electric car to feature a high-performance SS trim. Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet, describes the Blazer SS as having “the soul of a true sports car.”

Based on GM’s dedicated Ultium EV platform, the high-performance electric Blazer has a GM-estimated 290 miles range, with up to 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of powerful torque from an AWD system.

With Wide Open Watts (WOW) mode, similar to the Hummer EV’s Watts to Freedom, the Chevy Blazer SS can launch from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds.

GM designed the high-performance SS model to be the most aggressive in the Blazer EV lineup, with a special black front grille, unique rear skid plates, and “SS” badging.

The Chevy Blazer SS was initially expected to go on sale this fall with a starting price of around $65,996. However, Chevrolet recently updated its website (spotted by GM Authority), with the SS model now expected to be available in spring 2024.

Although you will have to wait for the high-powered version, the Blazer EV is still set to launch this summer, with five trims in total rolling out by next winter.

The first two that will be available include the 2LT, starting at roughly $47,595 with up to 293 miles of range, and the “street-inspired” RS, starting at approximately $51,995 for 320 miles of range.

The SS model will now follow in spring 2024 with an estimated MSRP of $65,995 with up to 290 miles range. Next winter, the 1LT trim is expected to be available starting around $44,995 with up to 247 miles range. GM is also releasing a Blazer EV Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) trim.

With the first sellable Blazer EV model rolling off the production line last week, the electric SUV is expected to be available by the end of the summer.
