The design of the Trailblazer SUV has clearly been inspired by the larger Blazer and features a very similar front fascia with thin, horizontal headlights and daytime running lights, along with secondary headlight units above faux air intakes. A large gloss black grille is also featured in the future RS model.
Silva’s rendering depicts the crossover with its roof chopped off slightly behind the C-pillars to make way for a small bed at the rear. The vehicle clearly wouldn’t provide a huge amount of cargo space in the bed but it would certainly create a rather intriguing vehicle which buyers in the U.S. could snap up in their droves. The Trailblazer pickup also includes enlarged roof rails.
Chevrolet first unveiled the new Trailblazer in China at the Shanghai Auto Show in April. The U.S.-spec model looks virtually identical to that, will land on local shores early next year and slot between the Trax and Equinox.
The car manufacturer hasn’t said what engine(s) the Trailblazer will be sold with in the States, but we expect to see at least one four-cylinder petrol engine. The vehicle’s edgy exterior design is matched by a fairly conservative cabin with a three-spoke steering wheel, aggressively-shaped air vents, a large infotainment system with a touch screen, and a number of metallic accents.
Considering the smaller Trax starts at $21,300 while the larger Equinox is available from $23,800, expect the Trailblazer to be priced somewhere at the middle, which means at around $22,000.
