    Such a beauty. Just make this a modern Blazer. Just make it into an SUV that looks like a 2-dr Truck with a removable Cap over the bed, and put in removable rear seats.

      That would be nice and I I’m telling you if that happen, I would be buying it the next day!

  • WalthamDan

    Hmmm I find this regular cab design actually attractive vs. the hideous crew and double cab.

  • Darnell Robeson

    Im surprised you didn’t mention how the GMC Sierra regular cab is also sold there. And the interesting thing is that the GMC is more popular than the Chevy in the Middle East.

    Myself and for other people I know would by 1 tomorrow morning if we had this option

    Sales. It’s always about sales, or lack thereof.

      Dinky wheels. Trail Boss with such dinky wheels don’t boss on the trail.

  • i still see plenty of regular cab trucks though so it’s really not that there isn’t a market for them.

    but i think maybe the manufactuers are limiting their sales because they can profit off the larger 4 doors?

    GM should offer the regular cab Silverado and Sierra at least in only one trim just as they do in Mexico. I’m sure some folks would love a sporty regular cab truck. Not everything has to be big and blingy.

  • regular cab trucks just look right.

  • eb110americana

    This would look so good with a nice tactical roll/light bar behind the cab.

  • Paul

    GM is infested with a bunch of jerks for not letting the US have them.

    Yes. CAFE scales with the vehicle’s footprint. The longer and wider it is, the less fuel efficient it needs to be. That’s why automakers reduce weight with aluminum bodies and carbon fiber beds, yet ALWAYS increase exterior size.
