Back end looks awkward to me. The rear quarter window and the rear door window don't flow together well at all. Really bizarre.

Thanks for posting those photos. Much appreciated.
Front end looks like the current GM front ends to me. Back end looks like $*@t to me.
Biggest issue I see is that I don't see a trailer hitch !!!!! :eek:

These pictures do make it look better, but I agree somewhat with the back end-especially the tail lights. I would definately look into purchasing if it does come here as the backend is not enough to deter me especially if they do put the diesel in it.

Agree, it would be worth a look but what can it tow ???? that would be my first question.

More of what can it do all in all? We'll know more once it hits the market in the Middle East and i'll be sure to keep you guys posted on all the info, heck i'll even take it for a test drive.

For me it's a bit too big for the moment 3 rows of seats is too much for a family my side LOL!

Its slowly growing on me; I really like the BOF design, and that it has a diesel/ manual option. I'm not much a critic for interiors, so I have no beef there. The front/ back ends look so odd to me, though...In my opinion, it doesn't do the SUV I've grown up with OR the name badge "Trailblazer" justice.

The sides of it look like a Nissan Pathfinder, the lines dont flow well. Also the back looks like a redesigned Acadia definately not my cup of tea, maybe im really old school but i like to have a real bumper.

This seems fairly close to production model, despite being a 'concept.' That said, I doubt the enormous overhead console with LED lighting stays, and I hope they get a brain and off the 3rd row seats OPTIONAL-- for the guy who wants to haul tons of STUFF and not people. I care how this one turns out, despite the fact I probably won't get one, because I'm thoroughly disappointed in it overall. The key issues I wanted to see addressed to enhance the existing ones was not changed, and they just stretched that front clip from a cruze. I'd love to see the GMC variant though, maybe it would have more promise.

If I decide to ever buy a mid-size SUV (now CUV) ever again, it will probably be the Jeep SRT8. Overpriced and too many steering wheel buttons, but that's just how sad this segment is anymore.

If memory serves, the 3rd row seats fold down and lay flush with the floor- that should leave a great deal of space

You still can't argue that not having the 3rd row to begin with is still going to offer more room. But even if they do fold flat, they'll stay that way forever. If on that one occasion I haul more than 5 people, they can sit in the back cargo area. Used to do that all the time.

I spoke to the owner of Chevy dealer and he told me that Chevy is going to offer the Trailblazer because GM made a GM mistake in leaving the market. Now with that said watch GM change it's mind. :yes:

I never said it could yield as much space, but hey, at least you have the option, right? Extra storage space if you need it, and extra seating if you need it.

Agree. May not be what everyone wants but the option is there if you need it. Believe me some people will welcome it especially if it comes with it as standard equipment.

I guess we can only assume it would come standard, at least until they start rolling them off assembly lines and into dealer lots. I myself know plenty of people who would be in the market for a vehicle like the new Trailblazer, if/when it comes to the US. I'd opt for one before a minivan, but thats just my personal preference :raspberry:

Wonder if they'll have one at the 2012 NAIAS...:undecided:

So who is taking bets that GM will not offer the diesel here in the US? For some reason the big 3 here have a major aversion with putting the small diesel's in cars and light trucks here, why though is the major question. I like the look and being rear wheel drive is another major plus. I hate the trend of the front wheel drive vehicles. I really don't like the way they accelerate and generally drive.

I for one hope they bring the diesel option. The timing would be almost right if they bring it here....we should be looking in 2 or 3 years.

Not sure if I would go for a diesel but would certainly take a look and a test drive. Prefer rear wheel drive for towing and would want 4 wheel drive for the occasional pulling the boat out of a slippery ramp and the travel trailer from muddy campsites occasionally. I wonder what the towing capacity is ???:confused:

I would love to see those 4 banger Duramax motors here in the US too; saw a short article on this stuff on my latest issue of Diesel Power magazine.

Not sure if I like the exterior. I think others said it looks like a Pathfinder and I never cared for how they looked.

I dont really care for the look. It really dosent go with the name TRAILBLAZER!!! You think trailblazer you think something to take offroad. This THING does not look like offroad material. It looks more like a damn van to me. I will not be purchasing this if it ever comes to US. Very Disappointed in GM!!!!! :hissyfit:
