Not sure how many of you saw this concept that debuted at the Guangzhou Motor Show, but its essentially a modified 2019 Blazer that accommodates a third row. The concept also showcases an integrated air extractor in the hood, as well as Brembo brake calipers and a carbon fiber roof. The name references back to Chevy's first SUV from 1935- the Suburban Carryall.

I hate how American car makers seem to be giving every market interesting versions of what it sells at home, contrary to what the Japanese do to most markets.

I much prefer the looks of the original FNR-X concept, but I can see why there is an interest in a three row variant. The new Subaru Ascent has been doing extremely well.

I have a feeling that if Chevy does decide to make this a production model, that they'll keep it exclusive to the Chinese market to start. It actually doesn't look all that different in terms of proportions, which makes me wonder what head and leg room will be like for the third row.

Chevy already has the three row Traverse, so I'm not sure there is much need for this variant on the Blazer. I think they should wait and see what interest is like for launch before expanding on any trim levels/options.

That's probably the safer way to go and I'm not sure how well the 4 cylinder would handle the additional weight of a longer body and additional passengers. They should probably just wait for the next generation model, once they gather feedback on what is and isn't working.

There are some big contenders in the 3 row segment as well, and even Hyundai has a new flagship with the Palisade. Chevy should try and gain a foothold in one area before expanding to another.

I'm praying for the return of the Chrysler Aspen which has a great chance this time around.

If Chrysler can have success as revamped affordable luxury brand with the Pacifica, rivaling the hyundai Palisade shouldn't be an issue.

The Aspen was essentially a rebadged Durango, so the odds of it returning are quite low. Not to mention it looked almost identical to the Cherokee.

Chrysler has what, two models in their lineup? I know that the Pacifica has been doing well enough, but I doubt they have the working capital to consider reintroducing models.

I have heard rumors that Chrysler may be shifting their focus towards being a electric mobility brand. This could mean more hybrid/electric vans in their lineup and maybe even some new semi autonomous systems.

Toledo is on my watchlist of plants that will be producing for FCA products and as far as a timeline goes... “30 vehicle nameplates with electrified solutions by 2022.”
