    Chevrolet UORV (ultimate off road vehicle) HEAVILY REVISED

    Freebird4x4 was my inspiration for this, though its not as good as his, i think thisll be a very good replacement for the Blazer. I want this to go against the Xterra, but for thousands less.

    Pros: The front grille, almost everything forward of the A-pillar, roofline, marker lights on the roof

    Cons: wheels/tires too small, could use some beefier fender flares, rear fender cuts into the rear doors too much.

    Raise the suspension, the approach angle looks as bad as the new tahoe, the departure angle looks good though. Again smooth the rear tire door cut. The bottom of the door below the window seems too tall. The front has a good agressive appearence. And for the offroading part....the breakover angle doesn't look too good but that could be fixed with a higher suspension and bigger tires. Think a chevy version of an h4.

    The front end is too quirky like the Hyundai Santa Fe.

    Now that looks good. BTW, nice drawing skills, far far better than me. And that does look like it would be a good affordable offroader. Just keep gm's bean counters away while it is being designed and engineered!

    Proportions are just totally off. The rear door looks like it would be totally unusable (no room for legs). I just can't get around your drawing style.

    i was considering making it a two door, but to me, two doors look unsophisticated. The four doors on this will probably be a minority option, its still easier to get back there with a second door (even if its narrow) then without one.

    thats quite a name.the styling looks dated but (good for their day)...try looking at the Tahoe and Equinox for inspiration.

    that's where my elongated doors come into play.... on the ORB, BTW i am honored to have been your inspiration
