The all-electric Chevy Blazer is here at last, and the company promises to ship it in front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive variants eventually. There will even be a dedicated police car version.

Full specifications remain to be detailed, but we already know that the range-topping Blazer EV SS will command 564 metric horsepower (557 hp / 416 kW) and 879 Nm (648 lb-ft) of torque. A special launch feature lets it sprint from zero to 97 km/h (60 mph) in under four seconds. The company claims the maximum driving range is 320 miles (515 kilometers), but does not clarify which specific modification it applies to.

Buyers can choose from four available trims called 1LT, 2LT, RS and SS. The former two are single-color with 19-inch wheels. The RS improves upon the formula with a black radiator grille and interior trim, as well as larger 21-inch wheels. The SS additionally gets a black roof and 22-inch rims.

The mid-level trims will be the first to ship in the summer of 2023, the manufacturer says. Prices will start from $47,595 and $51,995, respectively. The range-topping SS will emerge later and start at $65,995. The entry-level 1LT spec will join the lineup in early 2024 priced from $44,995.

A look inside the cabin reveals a large 17.7-inch infotainment screen and a smaller 11-inch digital dashboard. The GM Super Cruise is a paid option.

By default, the new Blazer EV ships with AEB, automatic pedestrian brake and collision warning preinstalled. You can opt for a distance meter, lane-keeping and smart high/low beam switching if you want to.
