The new Chevrolet Blazer is a very sporty SUV thanks to its Camaro-inspired styling, so it was surely only a matter of time before Chevrolet launched a performance-focused version. With the rise of performance SUVs such as the Ford Edge ST and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, it makes sense for Chevrolet to cash in on this growing segment. Chevrolet has been keeping quiet about a performance-focused Blazer, but now the automaker has confirmed a Blazer SS will make its world debut at the New York Auto Show on April 17.
Sadly, the Blazer SS won’t utilize the Camaro’s 6.2-liter V8 with 455 hp. Instead, it will get the same turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 found in the Cadillac CT6, which produces 404 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, paired with a 10-speed automatic. That makes it more powerful than the Edge ST, but still no match for the 700-hp Jeep Trackhawk. 0-62 mph takes 5.3 seconds before the Blazer SS tops out at 155 mph. All-wheel drive, of course, comes as standard to handle all that extra muscle.
