Although Chevrolet has yet to officially release powertrain details for the entry-level 2024 Blazer EV, a spokesperson from the company has confirmed prices and new specifics.
New 2024 Chevy Blazer EV details and prices confirmed
GM officially revealed the Blazer, one of its most iconic SUVs, was going all-electric last June. The Blazer EV was initially expected to launch with four trims: 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS, plus a Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) edition.
The company announced it was cutting the base 1LT trim, leaving the 2LT as the new entry-level option. The 1LT was expected to cost around $45,000, but that will no longer be the case.
Earlier this summer, Chevy raised 2024 Blazer EV prices and EPA range estimates with the 2LT AWD trim starting at $56,715. The new entry-level option will feature the 279-mile EPA range.
Meanwhile, the RS AWD will start at $60,215, also with 279 miles of range. The RS AWD is the first Blazer EV model rolling out this summer and will include added features like an illuminated front light bar and bowtie, head-up display, and black-painted grille panel and lower fascia as standard.
The RS RWD option will be available starting at $61,790 with GM-estimated 320-mile range this fall alongside the 2LT AWD. The sporty SS trim is now expected to begin production in spring 2024.
A Chevy spokesperson confirmed to Car and Driver that the 2024 Blazer EV 2LT and RS trims will pack 288 horsepower and 333 lb-ft of torque. The company has already said the high-performance SS will include a 557 hp AWD powertrain.

GM confirmed on its third-quarter earnings earlier today that Blazer EV deliveries have begun. The company delivered 19 models in Q3.
With the company announcing it will be delaying the Equinox, Silverado, and GMC Sierra EVs, it looks like GM will zero in on a few key segments.
The Blazer is one of GM’s top-selling and most recognized models. However, with GM raising prices significantly and dropping the base trim, it could face some setbacks.
Tesla’s Model Y starts at $43,990. That’s nearly $13,000 cheaper. With the recent delays, GM says it will “implement engineering efficiency and other improvements that will make our vehicles less expensive to produce.”
