Re: New Chevy Blazer

Saw that last night as well; no style in my opinion and looks like every other SUV on the market. Sad.

Re: New Chevy Blazer

I can't believe you would bring that into the REAL Blazer forum!

Re: New Chevy Blazer

As stated in the other forum - probably a very nice "car" with all the creature comforts, performance and fuel economy. But misses the styling mark in a big way. But a vast majority of the new car buying market aren't old enough to remember when trucks were truly trucks, and steel bumpers, ladder-style frames, manual hubs and transfer cases, and manual transmissions ruled the land. Just wait until the first autonomous Blazer hits the market. It will be like a egg-shaped pod with wheels.

Re: New Chevy Blazer

In my opinion '72 was the last good year for the Blazer, and yours Deadhead is the best example why.
