What color do you think you would want to see on the Chevy Blazer? It's tough to make a choice considering we we are still unsure of what it looks like, but everyone has a favorite color or a color they typically use as a go-to for their vehicles.

I'm pretty boring so I'll just go with black at the end of the day regardless.

A silver or grey for me since I want something easy to maintain and most forgiving to the elements i'll put it through. Living up north you get everything thrown at you.

I agree, silver and grey definitely let you get away with a lot of things as they "hide" a lot of imperfections easily. Paint chips aren't nearly as noticeable, scratches and scuffs aren't as noticeable, etc.

One easy way for Chevy to win over buyers is with some ZL1 colors offered on the Camaro. The worst thing they can do is let the launch years fly by without anything sporty looking. Blazer deserves it.

That orange paired with a black roof and trim is a combination that will undoubtedly work out for them greatly. With that said, having a black roof option alone would be amazing as it really transforms a vehicles look in the sporty way.

Floating roofs seem to be all the rage these days so going with that we might see blacked out pillars and a body colored roof. A lot of SUV's take after that new roof style, Chevy might want to follow, so far they haven't done much following.

Yeah, and at a time like this, following is something they definitely should be doing. The segments are extremely competitive these days and if you aren't going to go over the top, the least you can do is follow suit just to ensure you're relevant.

That's great and all but at the same time they need to pave new paths in the market. Its Chevy after all, they're in a position to do that and have the money for it. What better product than the Blazer for that?

Even if it was just a few unique ZL1 colors I would be happy.

Yeah but they can't just go off and start creating new paths as cost has to be kept in mind. We also haven't really seen Chevy do anything "new" for a very long time so I wouldn't expect it.

These are very simple things for them to do and car makers are always willing to go that direction. When it comes to developing whole trims that offer a different driving experience, then that's understandable.

Subtle changes are realistic.

But I think Chevy changes are a tad bit too subtle. They have never really pushed the bar at all

Even their current lineup's designs seems a bit vanilla to me, but that could change with the Blazer and they need to compete against other models that look increasingly aggressive.

We really won't know until it comes out but I'm definitely going to be keeping an open to mind to looking else where at this point. Personally don't have high hopes, but I'll hold on as I'm in no rush to get into something new but the sooner the better. We should be seeing it sometime by the end of the year so there really isn't much longer anyhow.

Whatever it comes out looking like and performing like, having the prerequisites to take on a Reaper trim would be great. Chevy did it to the Silverado, Blazer could be a good volume product for it:

Holy moly that whole front end is hideous. That over hang on the hood looks ridiculous. The headlights look like an eBay special or something. The only thing I like are the wheels and the lift and I think that's just about it. But seeing the Lingenfelter decal on the windshield makes the think the engine will be very notable as well. Any power specs on that ?

Considering the fact that they took a current generation model that probably had no intention of going this route its not that bad after all. I like it more for the potential it presents for Chevy going forward, its not something we seen before and as part of a future iteration it will be much better.

Design wise, Chevy may go with a similarly chunky front grill, but everything else can be different for all we know, but with a name like Blazer, I'm expecting to see orange as a paint color.

Its a bit of a long shot but with the new Corvette set to come out it could mean that Chevy could be bringing in new line-up-wide styling which could very well rub off on the Blazer? Thoughts?

Well the Blazer was already kind of wide, so a wide body styling won't be that surprising in the production model.

I guess so but i can't imagine it being any wider than a Tahoe or as wide as a Tahoe. So for benchmark we can use the Tahoe. Smaller enough than a Tahoe but big enough to wear an F150-like face.
