Well apparently GM a billion dollar automaker doesn’t think so don’t worry they will sell despite what you automotive experts think.

My take on all these responses is that dragging a respected name out of retirement and tacking it on an entirely different type of vehicle may not go over well with consumers (at least old school SUV buyers).

Can GM ever do anything wrong in your eyes?

I Know and it's a shame, because the original will always be a classic, this new chevy blazer is a dump.

No because GM fed our family for over 30 years, my father worked for them I’ve seen their design studio at their Warren Technical center in Michigan. I have friends who work for GM. I’ve been around the automotive industry my whole life living in metro Detroit. I’ve worked for Chrysler at their pickup truck assembly plant. So yes I’m a true big3 supporter. Until you have worked or you have first had knowledge then you know nothing about how the automotive industry works.

Ah, but most of the youngsters and much of the general public never heard of the original Chevrolet Blazer.

I would rather have an 1980 Blazer. I'm not really impressed by modern automotive design.

Like the 1980s version of the Chevy Nova and Pontiac LeMans. The Nova was based upon the Toyota Corolla so it wasn’t a bad car but it was in no way a Nova. The LeMans was a Daewoo and offered nothing in the way of performance that was LeMans.

I like the older vehicle styles also but with automakers facing cafe mpg standards a vehicle has to be more aerodynamic and sleeker to have less wind resistance to help achieve this.
