    "Blazer" spy shots reveal possible split-headlights design

    Chevy Blazer split headlights revealed in spy shots
    The trend continues

    The upcoming Chevrolet crossover SUV, frequently referred to as Chevy Blazer until the company officially announces the name, has been spotted once again. This time, Chevy engineers left the Blazer's lights on, giving us a glimpse at some new design details. Up front it appears the Blazer will have split headlights, much like those seen on the Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Kona, and the previous generation Jeep Cherokee. The main lamps are low in the front fascia, with LED running lights higher up. Between the lights is a large and low grille, the shape and size of which could be reminiscent of the refreshed Malibu.

    Around the back, we can see a bit of the taillights. They look very similar to those found on the Malibu and Equinox, but they seem to have more pronounced LED elements that form little "Y" shapes. Another interesting note is that this model lacks the rectangular exhaust tip surrounds in the rear bumper seen on another example of the crossover. Instead, this Blazer just has simple half-circle cutouts in the rear bumper for the tips. As such, this is probably a lower trim version of the crossover.

    XT6 and blazer look different. Can someone do an overlay?

    This will be a Ford Edge competitor, same wheelbase and dimensions as the XT5.

    XT5 = Blazer

    XT6 = Acadia




    Here is the XT6 spy shots overlaid on to this Blazer spy shot; same wheelbase. (not surprising, smaller rims)

    Are they expecting to position this against the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano?

    I have no idea why automakers are starting to use that design. Everyone knows how ugly the Cherokee turned out.

    Just me, but Blazer should be...umm...cooler. It's gonna be just like any other anonymous CUV.



    Blazer...

    Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.

    Yep that’s what it appears. In that small midsize segment. Not a Arcadia clone.

    Yes.

    VW will also be entering the upscale two row midsize segment with the Atlas Cross Sport

    This should fill the space between the Traverse and Equinox nicely. I've seen a lot of Baby Boomers purchase relatively well-optioned Edge's and Murano's because they like the step-in height and interior space. Chevy will do well with a similar vehicle.
