2021 Chevy Blazer SS Rumors, Review, Release

2021 Chevy Blazer SS Rumors, Review, Release – The New Chevrolet Blazer SS is a very sporty SUV thanks to its Camaro-inspired style, so it’s definitely just a matter of time before Chevrolet launches its performance-focused version. With the advent of performance SUVs such as Ford Edge ST and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, it made sense for the Chevrolet for cash in this thriving segment. The Chevrolet has kept quiet about the performance-focused Blazer, but now the car has confirmed the SS Blazer will make its world debut at the New York Auto Show on April 17th.

Unfortunately, the SS Blazer will not utilize Camaro’s 6.2-liter V8 with the 455 HP. Conversely, it will get the same turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 found in the Cadillac CT6, which generates 404 HP and 400 lb-ft torque, paired with 10-Speed Automatic. That makes it more powerful than Edge ST, but still not suitable for 700-HP Trackhawk Jeep. 0-62 mph took 5.3 seconds before the SS Blazer Tops out at 155 mph. All-wheel drive, of course, came as standard to handle all that extra muscle.

Some outlets reported that the Chevy Blazer SS was on its way. In fact, the report begins to spin it, according to the “source “, the SS Blazer will be revealed in the upcoming 2020 New York International Auto Show, complete with the introduction date of April 17.

But wait, it’s not all: This report, which has even been picked up by some GM dealers, including the powertrain details.

Six pushed will be supposed to be decimated into the 10-speed automatic transmission of power delivery to the ground through the AWD system. There will be, reportedly, also going “sporty ” modifications on the body, 21-inch wheels, “sporty ” suspension tuning for the “better handling”, and the brake upgrades. The SS Blazer was allegedly finally going to give Chevy an answer to Ford Edge ST. Sounds big enough, right? Right. But there is only one problem.

Chevrolet hasn’t released an image of the high-performance SS Blazer yet, but previously rendering images gave us a good idea of what it could look like. An Aero-enhanced body, slim black, and larger 21-inch wheels give the SUV a more cruel look. The SS Blazer has also lowered The suspension to give it Sportier handling and beefier brakes to increase the power stops of high-performance crossovers.

Details of prices and launch dates will be announced at the 2020 New York Auto Show But expect the Chevrolet to charge the premium top Blazer standard for additional performance, which starts at $28,800. Now, we know how and where this rumor begins, but we will take a high road and avoid pointing fingers… Although a simple web search should return a search result that will give you an idea of how this insane gossip begins.

So, let’s get real news. Firstly, there is no Spy image of the alleged Chevy Blazer SS. Secondly, GM does not submit any trademark submissions to the name Blazer SS.

2021 Chevy Blazer SS Engine

Thirdly, a bit of this is suspected the SS Blazer using a 10-speed automatic transmission adding a Swiss Cheese-like hole to the entire Blazer SS scuttlebutt. The reality is that the Blazer 2021 was unable to accommodate the new GM 10-speed, regardless of the model, Trim level, configuration, or engine.

That’s because GM 10LXX 10-Speed is engineered for vehicles based on the GM Rear-drive platform with a longitudinal engine orientation. Meanwhile, the new Blazer rides on the platform C1 GM – a front-drive platform with a cross-located powertrain. Thus, it just can’t fit the 10-speed, instead of sticking to the new 9-speed transaxle car.

And when it comes to the inner line, we have not heard of the plans to increase the production of the Twin-Turbo 3.0 L V-6 LGW engine at the GM Romulus factory where the six driven currently are made. We have also not heard of plans for high-performance variants of the new C1 platform.

So, unless the rumored of the SS Blazer is the best GM-kept secret, something we are very doubtful considering that the car has a very hard time keeping almost all the secrets about the mid-engine the Corvette C8 along with almost all The upcoming model, we can say with full confidence that the Chevy Blazer SS is a delusion from someone’s wild imagination that will not translate to reality. At least not for this generation all-new Blazer.
