We’re still waiting for Chevrolet to make an official announcement about the Blazer’s resurrection, if plans have been tabled for the foreseeable future or if the model will be going into production soon. Until then, enthusiast can only speculate and hope the next spy photo is of a Blazer test mule. Perhaps the latest spy photos from AutoBlog could shed some light on the matter.
Their spy photographers saw a camouflaged midsize crossover that could slot between the Equinox and Traverse. Though it may not be the Blazer, Chevy has certainly put more effort than usual into its styling. It could be due to the camouflage, but the beltline looks higher than usual, which gives the prototype a more aggressive stance when combined with a low roof.
AutoBlog thinks the new crossover will be fitted with a transverse-mounted engine and offered with front- or all-wheel-drive. They came to this conclusion after noticing just how close the front wheel wells are to the A pillar. Maybe it’ll sit on a modified C1XX platform, something that’s already used in the GMC Acadia.
The photographers even managed to get a glimpse of its interior, which features a uniquely shaped MyLink touchscreen and circular air vents.
Of course do take all of this with a grain of salt because Chevy is doing their best to keep a lid on it. For all we know, the crossover may not even take the Blazer name.
