I know this was touched on awhile ago, but there are more articles referencing a larger three row variant of the Blazer may be in development. GM Authority claims this seven seater will first launch in China early next year, arriving slightly later in NA. It will be 5.5 inches longer than the two row model and the its wheelbase will be increased slightly by 0.2 inches. It will still use the same platform as the Arcadia and XT5. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/02/25/three-row-chevrolet-blazer-xl/

This is exactly what we need in response to the new Acadia that might be too rich for some of us.
At nearly $12k more for the current version compared to our Blazer its not a premium that everyone can afford.

I think it looks cool since it's the same Blazer, just a little longer. It will probably come here in the US in 2021. Who knows for sure though. I can't quite tell by the pick, but the back seats look extremely tight back there.

I have concerns about space in the third row as well, as that sloping roofline is really going to cut into headroom. It will be interesting to see what additional features they may place in order to sway people over the Traverse or Tahoe. Not sure if there is a big need for multiple 3 row options.

Along with being the first time we're seeing a product like this from GM, it will be the first time such a product gets produced in China and sold in its home market.
I don't think Chevrolet could have picked a better product to do this with.
Of all Chevrolet models to be produced in China, the Blazer should get the least backlash.

No one takes issues with vehicles produced overseas for that given market. Its when automakers move production outside the U.S and still sell them as American models. The criticisms for producing the Blazer in Mexico are fair, but shouldn't be an issue so long as we don't see a drop in build quality.

Unless you are dead set on the styling of the Blazer, I don't see why you wouldn't just buy one of the other 3 row models from GM instead. There are some fantastic incentives on several of their larger SUV's right now, making them a much better buy for the money.
