[quote=TrapperL;52276402]Yet another butt ugly Mazda and Toyota wannbe with that fish mouth front end. This is an example of how ugly can you design a vehicle. Looks more like an Aztec than anything and we all know how ugly that was. Where's Harley Earl when you need him?[/QUOTE

So you’re an automotive design expert i see you know better than Gm about the vechiles they build.

No vehicle can look like the another automakers that would be called Theft.

Traverse: full size 7 seat
The Blazer is pretty much the Chevy version of the GMC Acadia, but will only seat 5, since the Traverse grew to 204" and the Acadia shrunk to 194".


I guessing the Blazer will go had to head with the Ford Edge, because if they do offer a 3rd row, it could wipe out the Acadia sales.

Was hoping something for something in the lines of a K-5 Blazer, but shrunk down to compete against the Wrangler Unlimited and upcoming Bronco. I'm sure it will sell well based on looks. I never liked the high belt-line style in cars or SUVs...poor viability, made the interior darker, and fells like sitting in a tub.

So it’s just a shortened Traverse?

It’s probably a pretty good vehicle but it doesn’t seem to live up to the name it’s been given.

An emasculated abortion of a vehicle in the Pontiac Aztec mold. God awful.

I will admit only being vaguely familiar with their crossover/SUV lineup but your question seems to touch on what I don't understand. It's like they are producing vehicles that are extremely similar to one another as opposed to vehicles that each have a somewhat distinct audience.
I really am not understanding why lol.

The Suburban being the exception of course.

I've owned two older full-size Blazers and hoped this one would be more along the lines of the Bronco concept. It could have been another cool retro model and competitor for the Jeep. This is just another bland SUV that blends in with the rest of the herd.
