And it comes straight from GM Design.
The Chevrolet Blazer continues to impress with strong sales numbers, and the demand for these stylish SUVs doesn't seem to be diminishing, despite some serious supply issues partly brought on by the international chip shortage. Chevrolet reintroduced the famous Blazer moniker back in 2019, and since then this midsize crossover SUV has impressed with its clever packaging, impressive safety levels, and handsome looks. Speaking of looks, GM Design recently shared a picture showing off a concept image of the Blazer looking sharp as all heck. The design, dreamed up back in 2015, shows us what the Blazer could have looked like.
When the new Blazer was released a few years ago, it was praised for its sharp lines and handsome looks, and to this day it is one of the better-looking cars in its class, especially when compared to dull creations such as the Honda Passport. Little did we know just how wild the initial designs for the Blazer were. Six years ago GM designer Brian Malczewski and the rest of the GM design team came up with this stunning creation. This was one of the main theme sketches and had a major influence on what the current car looks like. We love the massively flared rear wheel arches and streamlined hood.
There are no details regarding what engine lurks beneath the hood of this beauty, but we're thinking along the lines of the 455-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 that does duty in the Chevrolet Camaro LT1. Malczewski says of his design "This is one of the main theme sketches for the Blazer back in 2015. I wasn't the biggest fan of the name choice but still had a lot of fun with this one. I especially love seeing all the RS models driving around."
We understand that production cars never truly look like the concept models, but we wish the Blazer inherited a bit more attitude from this creation.
