GM's design team certainly seems to like the idea.
Chevrolet's new Trailblazer is proving to be a remarkably popular offering, and the brand with the bowtie is struggling to keep up. But just as with any other business, great sales are not an indication that one should rest on one's laurels. Instead, a good public image ought to be exploited as much as possible, and with so many manufacturers proving that the buying public is interested in coupe-style SUVs, Chevrolet would be silly to miss the opportunity to create one of its own. We've already seen a third party's idea of what such a vehicle could look like, but we decided to have a crack at it ourselves, using the below sketches from GM's official design department Instagram account as our inspiration.
Of course, there's gotta be a large and sporty grille up front, flanked by clusters of fog lights on either side with false grilles below these. As per the sketches, the LED headlights are integrated into the slim top grille, while black arch molding house some large and meaty wheels. A simple hood leads your eyes to the A-pillars, which are blacked out to aid with the 'floating roof' effect. Gloss black mirrors, B-pillars, and roof rails would also look pretty good on a sportily-styled vehicle such as this. The profile also gets the darkened treatment with large rocker moldings that feed into the doors and the arches. A silver accent here enhances the low look.
Of course, the rear slopes aggressively for the coupe feel, while prominent high-mounted taillights jut out and wrap around. We haven't rendered the rear, but we expect that a production version would feature a faux diffuser and at least two exhaust outlets. A roof-mounted spoiler and some fake vents in the rear bumper would complete the look, as per those sketches. Keep in mind that we don't know for sure if a coupe version of the crossover is coming, but based on the fact that it wouldn't cost too much and could be popular, the possibility is certainly very real. The release of those sketches above also hints that it could be real, but we'll have to wait for official word to confirm or deny its development.
