Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Chevrolet Blazer has a score of 83, implying a 0.038% chance of driver death (3.4% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.033%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.9%.

We estimate that the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0381% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.3556%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0381% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.3556% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer is 18% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer is 6% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2023 Chevrolet Blazer offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features with Chevrolet's Chevy Safety Assist greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer: Forward Collision Alert (FCA) and Automatic Emergency Braking with Front Pedestrian Braking. Some safety features are optional on the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Monitoring.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Chevrolet Blazer. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
