It seems Chevrolet is preparing a mid-size crossover primarily based on Basic Motors’ new C1XX, or “Chi” platform. Spy shots of the cars had been lately captured, pouring fuel on rumors of the Blazer nameplate returning to Chevy’s lineup. Could we really see a Chevy Blazer and Ford Bronco matchup by the decade’s end?
The photographs come by way of Automotive News, whose photographer caught a test mule roaming the streets of Michigan. The three-row crossover will be a corporate cousin to the new 2017 GMC Acadia and slot among the upcoming 2018 Chevy Equinox and complete-size Traverse.
This would give Chevy a large increase in crossover offerings, enabling it to strongly compete in the exploding crossover and SUV market place. With the Blazer in place, Chevy would have six vehicles in the category. The upcoming Blazer also answers queries on why Chevrolet decided to downsize the Equinox for 2018.
As for the test mule itself, it clearly shares its platform with the Acadia. This is most evident in the reduce portion of the physique, with the fuel tank skid plate hanging beneath the unibody chassis, the location amongst the rear door and wheel effectively, and the rear lower rear bumper area. Every single is all practically identical to the 2017 Acadia.
As for its Chevy trimmings, the grille attributes horizontal chrome slats like the Traverse, the LED headlights appear related to the 2018 Equinox, and the rear tailgate has chrome trim just above the license plate. Dual exhaust ideas give the crossover a sporty flair.
The Blazer is anticipated to debut sometime in 2017, probably at the Detroit Auto Show, ahead of its 2018 release. And like its size, Its value will slot in between the Equinox and the Traverse.
So will Chevrolet bring the Blazer back for a fight with the upcoming Ford Bronco? Keep reading for much more.
