The lovechild of a Camaro and an F-150 looks as odd as it sounds.
The Chevrolet Camaro is one of the brand's most popular and recognizable models and one of the earliest rivals to the Ford Mustang. When the Camaro was first revived in a Transformers movie, the retro yet modern styling was jaw-dropping, and every iteration of Bumblebee has been just as pretty. That styling was so successful that the latest Trailblazer adopted many of the Camaro's unique design cues. But what if you wanted a truck that looks like a Camaro? Well, tuningcar_ps on Instagram has something of an idea of what such a vehicle would look like, but we're not sold on this one.
Looking at the shape of the taillights, the windows and, most notably, the front fenders, it appears that this render is based on a Ford F-150 Raptor. When it comes to virtual car design, there are no rules, but based on this render, perhaps there should be. The overall look is very awkward and seems forced, which is not a surprise considering that the Camaro is a sleek machine and the Raptor is anything but. Still, the artist behind this Instagram render is reported to have completed all work posted on a smartphone, not on a normal computer. It's tough to deny the talent and skill that this surely requires, but we have a better idea of what the artist ought to have done.
See, the Trailblazer already looks much like the Camaro but has a raised a body. Hence, we would have started with this SUV instead, and adjusted the Trailblazer's looks from the C-pillar back. Nevertheless, in a world where the name Mustang now means both a pony car and an SUV, where a Rolls-Royce comes as an SUV too, and where Lamborghini sells a four-door machine as well, maybe a Camaro truck is not all that unlikely. Automakers love pandering to people's brand loyalties and making the most of a successful project. Hence, we wouldn't be surprised if one day, something like this becomes a very real part of the truck world.
