Something like that would be a much closer rival to the upcoming Edge ST. Ford has already mentioned they are considering a RS variant, so Chevy may have no choice but to consider an even more aggressive trim for the Blazer.
IMO this is the furthest they could have gone without stepping on the Camaro's toes.I personally think the Blazer is much more sporty looking, as Ford has changed very little with the ST over the Sport in terms of styling. You have to admit that for a crossover this is pretty aggressive looking. Whether or not it lives up to the Blazer name is another issue altogether.
If that happens i'll be quite surprised. At this rate I think Chevy should focus on an SUV to rival Ford's upcoming Mach-E Performance SUVI'm still hoping for Chevy do borrow some of the Camaro's powertrains and adopting them for the Blazer. Since its not going to have any real off road capability, they may as well double down on its street performance.
