I agree completely that the Trailblazer should've been the off-road version. That's why I was careful in saying they should've made one "along" with the current Blazer. The current Blazer fits a need in Chevy's lineup. In my opinon it's way more appealing than the Traverse or Equinox and is better looking than most SUVs on the market.Honestly no. While I appreciate off-road vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler and the new Ford Bronco I would not have purchased the Blazer if it was off road. What I think is Chevy did fine making the Blazer the sporty SUV with the Camaro-Like styling but they should have taken the TrailBlazer to the Off Road level. I think Chevy is going to try and compete at least a little in the off road area with the Colorado ZR2.
In the end though I am glad that it looks like there will finally be some good competition for Jeep with the upcoming Bronco though. Maybe it will force Chrysler to increase the quality of their vehicles if they do not have Jeep to keep them alive.
