Witness the power of Chevy’s 557 hp Blazer EV SS at Daytona!
Chevrolet is planning to release the all-electric Chevy Blazer EV this summer, which will be the brand's first fully electric SUV. Later, the company will also launch a high-performance SS model of the vehicle, marking the first time Chevy has introduced a performance-oriented electric car. The SS variant is expected to deliver a powerful output of around 557 horsepower, transforming the family-friendly SUV into a speedy beast.
At the Daytona International Speedway, a video features Daniel Suarez and Ross Chastain, both NASCAR drivers, showcasing the impressive Chevy Blazer EV SS. The AWD EV is tested by both drivers using Wide Open Watts mode, with Suarez commenting on the vehicle's torque during his turn, and Chastain noting its smoothness and asking if the cup car would feel the same.
The Blazer EV SS is constructed on GM's Ultium Platform and boasts impressive specifications such as a GM-estimated range of 290 miles, up to 557 horsepower, and 648 lb-ft of torque with an AWD system.
The Chevrolet Blazer EV, which will be based on GM's Ultium Platform, will be available in four trim levels - 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS. The SS model, which is the most aggressive design in the lineup, will feature a unique front grille, full LED lighting with a center light bar and illuminated "bowtie," a two-tone color scheme with a black roof and A-pillars, and standard 22-inch wheels. Interestingly, the Blazer EV will be offered in front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive, depending on the variant. However, a police pursuit vehicle variant will not be available to the general public.
The Blazer EV 1LT, which starts at $44,995, has an estimated range of 247 miles, DC fast charging capabilities of up to 190 kilowatts, an 11.5 kW AC onboard charger, 19-inch wheels, and full LED lighting. The 2LT has a longer range of 293 miles, while the RS has the longest range of 320 miles.
