We can see that the Chevy Blazer will be a three row situation much like the Dodge Durango, Mitsubishi Outlander, Buick Enclave, even the Nissan Pathfinder.

Not too sure if there will be an option that isn't three rows but I guess we can assume this at least. What other vehicles have you guys been looking at?

There's the VW Atlas which is nice and I had a chance to see it in real life, but their recent reputation has me shying away from the brand.

Nope, though I do have my eye on other cars now. If the new Blazer is similar to its body-on-frame SUV predecessor, then it may go up against the upcoming Bronco and potential TJ Cruiser from Toyota.

Am I missing something? What happened to the brand?
Well it is a german brand and like most european brands they're not know for the most reliable or dependable vehicles, do some research for yourself and you'll see how skeptical someone can be to pull the trigger on one. But with how much more Audi-like these are, its a bit easier to take on that risk.

^ Pretty much this is the reason why I stay away from German made cars and they had the whole dieselgate scandal last year so I'm not so trusting of them anymore.

Another small size competitor that may have popped up is the new Toyota FT-AC concept. Would be perfect if it was a bit bigger.

Cars or any products are like tools in a tool box, German cars are great if you want some of the best luxurious and high tech vehicles the market has to offer, under warranty. Its something you can't have elsewhere, maybe with the British, but the Japanese and Americans still have a lot of catching up to do.

Don't agree. I think Japanese vehicles are the most reliable cars on the market, they last long and their parts are not expensive. Maybe they lose in terms of luxury, but everything else is on the very high level.

Quality may have gone down over the years, but Japanese brands are still known for reliability. If the FT-AC concept was larger and actually going into production, then the Blazer may have itself a rival. But I don't see many competitors for it aside from the Bronco.

What about Jeep Cherokee? I thought it has always been one of the most serious rivals for Chevy Blazer, since its SJ model.

Out of the two Cherokee's out right now its going to be the Grand Cherokee is my expectations of the Blazer are right, unless its more of a regular Cherokee. Biggest question right now is how it would slot in the model line up. But definitely can't be as big as a Tahoe or Suburban.

The Chevy Blazer is probably going to be a bit more compact than the Grand Cherokee, or around the same size. Sitting higher and more compact seems to be the trend these days.

I think something sized like a Toyota 4Runner will be the best move for Chevy since thats a product that has long proven itself over the decades, selling consistently, its one of Toyota's strongest products around. Even back in the 90's it was common to see these compared along with the GMC Jimmy.

What of the Ford Edge? Could that be competition for the Blazer once it's out? Lets' face it, the Blazer won't be as off road ready as its predecessor and more like a rugged crossover.

Will be interesting to see what Ford brings with the Edge ST and I wonder if we'll be lucky enough to see something along the lines of SS trim for the Blazer. Some trailblazer models received this trim and I wonder if Chevy has plans to extend it. If they aren't going to make it off road capable, they could at least make it fast aha.

If they can deliver on an Edge ST that is as sporty feeling as some of those german SUV's then we could be in for a real treat. No one in affordable segments have done it but Ford will be the first of many.

Just image if we end up seeing a Edge RS sometime down the road!

If Ford does come out with an Edge RS, it won't really compete against the Chevy Blazer simply because they occupy different segments. One is more for utility and as far as I know, the RS badge is used for high performance track cars.

It will be the first of many that can be seen a cheaper AMG SUV or a cheaper BMW M SUV. If that's the angle that's being played here then i have a lot of hope. Starting in the mid $30k range, I can't see an RS model selling for more than $70k.

If the market dictates that there is a need for high performance trims of SUVS, then it's all the more likely that we could see a similar variant of the Blazer. Seeing as how it doesn't look to be catering towards the off road segment, there is a possibility it will shift towards luxury/sports.
