Hey guys, just joined up the forum. I had a 95' Chevy Blazer years ago, and i'll admit that I was pretty interested when I heard Chevy may be reintroducing it to the market. Decided I'd see if there was a website or anything about it, and came across this website. Thanks for having me!

Those 1995 Chevy Blazers were tanks back then, go through **** and back and still survive. Wasn't the best on gas from what I hear, but everything else makes up for it. What are you hoping to see in the new one?

I was hoping for another compact truck, but its starting to look like this thing has been heavily crossoverized, which is disappointing. I figured that Chevy would keep it true to the original design, as that would've helped distinguish them in such a crowded segment. Really not digging the long bubbly shape that I've seen in spy shots.

Biggest downside to todays cars is they lack the character that vehicles from the 90's and prior had. Back in the day Blazers really stood out even among all the Tahoe's, Suburbans, and so on.
I'm almost at the point that if this Blazer doesn't live up to what a Blazer should be... I might just buy a Tahoe.

Chevy will most likely smooth out the Blazer's lines to somewhat resemble today's SUVs. Still hoping they keep the two door body and that chunky front from older models. But if it blends with everything that's already out there, I may as well go for a Tahoe or a 4Runner.

Welcome to the forum man, and I think most of us are in agreement that the redesign on the Blazer is looking rather questionable. I don't know why they didn't stick to some of the earlier concepts, which were much closer in styling to the old generation. It would seem that only the Japanese/Korean manufacturers are interested in releasing anything original these days.

If they plan to go head to head directly with Ford then offering a two door version will not only be required but also prove to be an asset.
Here's what Ford is working on:

I don't think there has been any confirmation of a two door variant, as it looks like the new Blazer is just another run of the mill crossover. Though seeing as how its more oriented to street performance, it doesn't look like it will have to directly compete with the Bronco.

It was engineered from the start to be a sporty SUV and as such, models like it have higher performing variants that come out a year or years down the road.
Give it time, we'll see more from Chevy. I won't even be surprised to see a Police Interceptor version.
