Chevy has finally pulled the covers off the upcoming Blazer, and its immediately apparent how many styling cues have been borrowed from the new Camaro. This new CUV will slot between the Equinox and Traverse, which should fill the gap for those who a looking for a larger crossover without a third row. According to Chevy each trim will have it's own distinct appearance with unique grilles. It comes standard FWD with a 2.5l inline hour which makes 193hp and 188 lb-ft of torque. It will also be offered with a 3.6l V6 that makes 305hp and 269lb-ft of torque. Both are paired to a nine speed automatic transmission and two all wheel drive systems will also be available.

Looks like just another crossover for the masses, and I don't think this is what enthusiasts we're hoping for. Though with so much interest growing for performance SUV's/crossovers, I can still see this model doing quite well on the market considering its power outputs. Though I doubt even with AWD that it will have much, if any off road capability.

There are also some early reports that it will come in up to 6 different trim levels, and I'm assuming that some of those will be performance oriented. Starting estimations of its price seem to suggest an MSRP of $27k in the base trim.

I hope one of those is an Interceptor because down the road it will mean cheaper parts for us. Seen this happen with the Crown Victorias and even the current line of Ford Interceptors.

Fords upcoming new Explorer is looking pretty impressive as well, and rumors suggest that it will have a hybrid powertrain of some kind. Police services will have to look to another automaker however, once all of Fords sedans are officially discontinued.

I hope they have plans for something sporty because at this point the Explorer won't fit that role. Instead it will be more of a utilitarian vehicle more than anything else. Unless what i'm seeing online are early test mules.
