Thanks to the folks over at Roadshow, I was able to find a video overview of the RS AWD model. Going to keep my fingers crossed that down the line we see an SS with a 6.2.

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.

They need to get their foot in the door with the consumer base, before they start considering even more expensive trim levels. For all we know the entry level model could end up being the more popular choice. People are looking for the best value for their money these days.

Fortunately the Colorado ZR2 that has been seeing tremendous success received another update from Chevrolet. If they're that serious then it brings hope to the Blazer.... fingers crossed.

I don't that the Blazer is ever going to shift towards off road performance, though we have yet to see how capable the AWD is. Chevy is finally starting to debut some promising trims/kits for their trucks and SUV's.

Consumer demand for build options are at an all time high, so it can be a risky move to launch a new vehicle monospec. We will have to see if Ford's decision to go that route with the Edge ST will play to their advantage or not.

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.

IMO this is the furthest they could have gone without stepping on the Camaro's toes.

The brand new Camaro is a mess and there's a reason why they have already had to refresh the front fascia due to consumer feedback. Will also be nice to get something with Camaro design cues that you can actually see out of.

Still some very core Camaro design traits that will continue on but point is the Camaro's traits is where they don't step on. Much like the Mustang and Ford SUV's

I'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.

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 SUV
