The Chevrolet Trailblazer has been sold throughout the world since 2012, if you were somehow unaware of that information. Australia, Thailand, India, Russia and more are graced with the SUV’s presence. General Motors and Chevrolet has since denied the U.S. market, the Trailblazer’s birthplace, a proper successor to the final iteration we saw in the mid-2000s.
Jalopnik’s Truck Yeah has penned a brief call to arms for the return of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, and we will kindly join them in the call of the SUV’s return. The SUV and crossover market is hot, and while Jeep scores nearly every buyer clamoring for some Trail Rated drivability, Chevrolet will happily sell you a Colorado or Silverado pickup.
But not all of us want a truck for usability purposes. The current global Trailblazer is a Colorado at heart, meaning it’s not a difficult prospect to imagine. Swap out the rear leaf-springs for a five-link setup with coil springs and bam, we have ourselves a Chevrolet Trailblazer.
We may not be far off, though. GM has already trademarked the Blazer name in the United States once again, and we know Chevy has a new midsize SUV or crossover on its way to slot between the full-size Traverse, and upcoming downsized 2017 Chevrolet Equinox. It most likely won’t be exactly like the global Trailblazer, but the Blazer name brings back fond memories of the Sport Utility Vehicle boom.
We’re ready for the Trailblazer, and we think the market will attest to it, too.
