The RS, AWD would be using the weaker rear motor, so, it wouldn't be matching the SS variant. But the SS gets your much more for the money,
I know it won't match the SS. I'm just curious to know what the AWD RS will have for a 0-60. I don't like the interior of the SS and much prefer the look of the RS and don't really want to drop an extra $15,000 on the SS if I don't have to.

Equinox EV AWD is estimated by Chevy to be 6 secs. I expect that is a conservative estimate; the Bolt was quoted by Chevy at 7 seconds but I saw plenty of reviewers that got around 6.5.

Not sure if the Blazer RS will have the same motor setup as the Equinox AWD.

A 6 second 0-60 time with instant torque should feel plenty zippy for me.

You can go to the Lyriq AWD it is said to be around 500hp which should take it to the 5 sec range. Knowing that GM is probably usimg the same motors, no reason to not put the same in the Blazer RS AWD.

That's the SS. 500hp would not be for RS. The rear motor isn't as and won't be as strong if you have the AWD version.
Ok so lets make it 480hp, get the 0-60 under 6 and I would be good. It would be hard to believe GM would make different motors, verse not allowing them or progaming them for more horses. After market chips here we come!!

From @Neromancer in the drivetrain thread:

“In the Blazer EV FWD will use the 180KW electric motor.
Blazer EV eAWD will use the 180KW motor front and 62KW motor rear
Blazer EV RWD will use the 255KW motor rear
Blazer EV SS AWD uses the 180KW motor front and 255KW motor rear.”

I’ll leave the conversions for you to work out…

Blazer EV eAWD will use the 180KW motor front and 62KW motor rear = 242kw = 324HP
Blazer EV RWD will use the 255KW motor rear = 340HP
Blazer EV SS AWD uses the 180KW motor front and 255KW motor rear. = 435 kw = 583 HP, and with WOW mode??? HP?

I’ll leave the conversions for you to work out…
it's interresting, to know why they don't flip the RS AWD to use a weaker motor in front and strong motor in the back.
Production issue I guess?

I'm from the GV60 exodus, the Performance GV60 has dual 160KW front and back motor. (total 320kw = 429hp, + 10sec-boost to (360kw or 483hp)
Whereas the advance model, has 60kw front and 160kw aft motor.

I bet the 2LT and RS eAWD would have the same setup,
180+ 62.
I wish that it is the reverse, making the car much more sporty. Else, the front would just keep burning!!
If you go look at some Gv60 review, the front keeps burning up but no torque steer.

I would be greatly surprise, why the Blazer SS, has higher output dual motor, compare to the GV60P, but claim to 0-60 less than 4.
The GV60P = 360kw(483HP) boost mode for 10second. 0-60 by Car and Driver 3.7second.
Blazer EV SS = 435kw(583HP) (WOW mode with no limit)

Probably software tuning? Or the SS should do about 3.5sec or less.
the SS has over 100HP over the GV60P.

Looking at the weight of the GV60 and the Lyriq the Blazer EV SS will likely end up close to 1000lbs heavier than the GV60. GM could also be sandbagging their numbers a bit. Hyundai has been known to exaggerate their numbers a bit.

The Blazer EV RS (FWD, AWD) will use the medium sized battery pack and smaller motors so that should save some weight but will likely still end up a few hundred pounds more than the GV60.

Of note the Blazer EV is larger than the GV60.

Do you have a source for the combinations of drivetrains and battery packs? I would be interested to read more.

When GM launched the Blazer they posted a trim comparison. They have since removed a number of the details but some savvy people on this forum managed to snag it here:

Thanks for sharing that. There is a lot of information to unpack. It is interesting that here it lists the 1LT FWD as having more HP than the 2LT and RS. I guess we will all have to wait and see when they start to build them.

Yes the 1LT and 2LT FWD will have different HP. They will use the same motor but different battery packs. The Small and Large battery packs will have higher pack voltage than the Medium battery pack.

Based on my estimates:
Small 96S 2P battery pack (192 cell - 8 module) - 355 VDC nominal (400V full) - 68KWh
Medium 80S 3P (240 cell - 10 module) - 296 VDC nominal (334V full) - 85KWh
Large 96S 3P (288 cell - 12 module) - 355 VDC nominal (400V full) - 102KWh

Thanks for the detailed reply. This also suggests that the AWD RS and 2LT will use the medium pack as well? If that's true it is a bit of a bummer that the only way to get AWD with the large pack is on the SS.
