A reliable and capable vehicle is needed year-round, but when the winter rolls around in Metro Detroit, that need becomes oh-so apparent. The 2024 Chevy Blazer, with a robust build and features with advanced technology, stands out as an excellent choice for navigating the challenging conditions of the colder months. Whether you’re tackling snowy highways or navigating slippery city streets, the Chevy Blazer offers the confidence and comfort needed for a stress-free winter drive. 

All-Weather Confidence

Maintaining control in winter-like conditions is of the utmost importance, and the Chevy Blazer has features that will assist you during these times. All with the turn of a dial, the Driver Mode Selector allows you to adjust the Blazer’s performance on challenging road surfaces. With standard front-wheel drive (FWD), you can select the snow/ice driving mode to assist in slippery conditions. Also available is all-wheel drive (AWD), which can help you stay in control in low-traction situations like rain, sleet, and snow. With either FWD or AWD, experience enhanced stability and traction when you need it most. 

Additionally, the StabiliTrak system helps drivers maintain control when accelerating on snow-covered roads by detecting when the wheels are slipping from the wet conditions. On most slippery surfaces, the 4-wheel antilock disc brakes help reduce wheel lockup and maintain steering during hard braking. 

Whether you're going out on a fishing trip, discovering new hiking spots, or heading out for a weekend of camping, the Trailblazer is an ideal companion for your active lifestyle.

Warmth and Comfort on Cold Days

During the colder months, time spent in the car doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. With dual-zone automatic climate control, the driver and front passenger can set individual climate settings to their perfect temperature. Additionally, these seats allow for three levels of warmth, and with a push of a button, your cushion and seatback can be heated to your preference. Also available are heated rear outboard seats1 on select trims, which will provide additional comfort to passengers in rear seats. The heated steering wheel is also great at keeping your hands nice and warm on your journeys and is standard on select models.

Other convenient features include remote start, keyless entry, and more. Remote start will activate the climate control system, heated seats, and an available heated steering wheel. The keyless open and start is excellent for when you have the key fob in your possession, but don’t want to stay out in the cold searching for it. This convenient feature will lock and unlock doors without having to locate the key fob in pockets, purses, or bags. And for a step above the carpeted floor mats, the available all-weather floor liners1 are an excellent way to help provide carpet coverage that traps debris and melting snow from your shoes.

Visibility and Safety in Harsh Conditions

With poor winter conditions, driving can be a concern for many. The LED Daytime Running Lamps offer enhanced visibility for those shorter winter days when sunlight seems to fade quickly. The LED headlamps illuminate the road ahead, helping improve down-the-road visibility in low-light conditions and the LED tail lamps offer a similar brightness for those around you.

For more assistance, the rear window defogger is a standard feature that utilizes a warming grid to clear up fog or frost. When this is engaged, the heated power outside mirrors are also activated, helping clear them of ice, snow, and frost for additional visibility help. An additional feature available is the rear camera mirror washer1, which can help remove snow, ice, and other moisture with a spray-on command. With these safety features, the 2024 Chevy Blazer offers drivers peace of mind while on the road.

Navigating with Ease

When it comes to being connected, the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system offers a 10.2” diagonal color touch-screen, with capabilities for Wireless Apple CarPlay™2 and Android Auto™3. Standard on the Premier and RS trims, and available on the 3LT is a premium system option with connected navigation4. The connected navigation has enhanced voice recognition and can update points of interest in real-time. Additionally, the color driver information center on the Blazer sends warning messages, vehicle information, and offers driver personalization, all within the driver’s line of sight. This location makes imperative messages easy to read and interact with when necessary.
