Chevrolet Reveals Bigger Blazer Concept In China

/ Comments

The concept is still smaller than a Traverse.

See this crossover? It looks like the new Chevy Blazer, right? Well it isn't. It was also made by Chevrolet, but it's called the FNR-CarryAll concept, and it's being unveiled at the Guangzhou Motor Show in China this week.

The third concept to bear the "Find New Roads" (FNR) designation, the CarryAll is slightly larger than the Blazer. But the extra 3.3 inches of length (0.4" of which is contained within the incrementally longer wheelbase) is enough to give it room for six inside. It's also wider (yet lower) than the Blazer, but not as big as the larger, three-row Traverse.


The CarryAll name harkens back to the original Suburban that first put Chevy into the SUV game way back in 1935. But like the Blazer (or what Ford's doing with the Mustang), the concept draws its stylistic inspiration from the Camaro. It also features a hood-mounted air scoop, carbon-fiber roof with a (somewhat paradoxical) panoramic glass panel, and 22-inch alloys, packing red Brembo brake calipers, gripping carbon-ceramic rotors. Inside is a two-tone red and black leather cabin with sports seats, a 12-inch instrument display, and a 10-inch infotainment screen. Just what's powering the thing, we don't know.


Nor has Chevy revealed more than one photo at the moment. But the FNR-CarryAll will be joined at the Guangzhou show by a new Monza RS sedan (still yet to be revealed), along with a sporty Malibu XL Redline, and a similarly Redline-themed take on the Corvette C7.R racer.

Chevrolet has sold over six million vehicles in China since launching there in 2005, 422,549 of which were delivered already this year. "In Chevrolet's second-largest market, we will continue to strengthen our brand's appeal by introducing products that embody our youthfulness, performance DNA and innovation," said local-market brand boss Scott Lawson.
