    The K5 Blazer: Hey Chevy I have a Plan to shut the 2019 Blazer Haters Up

    How hard would it be? What would the cost be? Would it be worth it? What if you were able to charge $5-7K more than a regular Tahoe/Yukon?

    Take a Z71 Chevy Tahoe/AT4 Yukon. Make it a 2 Door, with drop down tailgate and swing up rear window. Give its a complete rubberized floor from front to cargo area. Optional hooked in carpeted mats only. Raise it 3-4 inches, while giving it standard Hankook Grabbers All-Terrain on 15-16 inch wheel, spare behind rear seats . Call it the Chevy Blazer K5/GMC Jimmy Heritage Edition and use these emblems (below), pitted with a hint of rust straight from the factory and let people know they've been sitting around in the back of the warehouse since '72. If they haven't been, just lie to 'em. They won't care cause they'll think its cool.

    Interesting idea and a niche not currently covered. It might do OK, but GM brass can't fight their way out of a wet paper sack so.... I think we know the answer.

    It would be great but even when GM offered a two door Tahoe the take rate was under 5% so no chance it'll happen now sadly.

    GM also has one to shut you up DaBangbang..It's called the "Redline" Blazer...A series of red stripes placed strategically on a Blazer to give the appearance that it's sportier than the regular smegular version.

    All you need to do is look at Redline Traverse or Malibu to get the idea.

    Hell, GM may even have enough spicy mustard in their underpants to offer it with a "Nite" edition.....Look out!...

    It would be an awesome thing if they did come on here, see something like this and make it so. I really like the idea of a K5 along with a revisit of the Hummer H3(and T) now that the Jeep Gladiator is coming. Would you believe that right now the H3T is still going for $30K+ with 100K on them? Awesome off-roader and puts most of them to shame.

    Honda can justify a Ridgeline but GM can't justify the Avalanche.

    This will go nowhere, especially at a price premium over already expensive Tahoes.

    Right?!? But Hold on. You are one of the most vocal people in the group hating on the new Blazer, which will probably be a very nice seller.. This idea, if it came to fruition, you are saying that the take rate would be only 5%? I figured on you and the like alone, it would be like 20% LOL

    I love the new Blazer. Its a gorgeous looking CUV. I am seriously considering one as a daily as currently I'm rocking a K2xx SUV from point A to B Below would be my config I think. Maybe Black on Black too

    I highly dislike the "new" Blazer as well.
    Would rather it have been a successor to the S-Blazer. A FWD based CUV is NOT a replacement to a S-Blazer.

    One can have fun can't he? Jeez. Pluse, to be honest Honda's only form of "truck" is the Ridgeline, which is for all intents a Pilot with a bed. GM has a bunch of trucks
