Spotted by KGP Photography, a camouflaged crossover was testing alongside a Nissan Murano and it’s expected to sit between the Equinox and Traverse. Rumored to be the Blazer, Chevy made room for this upcoming crossover by shrinking the Equinox and increasing the second-generation Traverse’s size.

Reportedly underpinned by the same architecture as the GMC Acadia, the Blazer could rival the likes of the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano.Not much is known beyond that, but Automotive News believes it could be offered with three row seating, but it’ll most likely be a tight fit for adults and a third row could reduce the crossover’s cargo space.

Though we can’t tell the difference, the two prototypes caught on camera are said to be of different trim levels. The mule with smaller wheels and dual circular exhaust system could be the lower or entry-level trim while the prototype with larger chrome wheels hints at a more upmarket trim.

Powering the new Blazer could be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine capable of delivering 193 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque. The other possibility is a 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. Both of which are found in the GMC Acadia and they could be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission in the Blazer.

We’re expecting it to go on sale next year as a 2019 model

Glad to see its becoming that much more official because I couldn't see it becoming the opposite, in the end it was just a matter of time to when this would launch and its getting close. With the way the industry is going, a sporty name for a sporty-esque SUV is essential.

I'm hoping that it's the Blazer as well, but this is a rumor for now and we won't until next year. But the body doesn't look like it can fit an optional third row.

GMC just came out with a new Terrain which could very well share some things with out Blazer, that along with some other GM products could hint at what more to expect since right now we're so limited on information.

the article says it's like a shrunken Equinox, but the boxy looks to be around the same size to me, at least in wheelbase length.

with all those points of reference i hope that means what's in the picture above is just a test mule in not the official proportions meant to throw us off, what we need more than anything else is a blazer with sporty proportions like this concept:

The camouflage does make it look very bulky, but with the right amount of pinched metals and lines running throughout the body, the Blazer could look like a sporty crossover. Wouldn't say no to those headlights either.
