Holden, now a full-line importer of cars and SUVs, left the door open for the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer to join the lineup in the future.
Speaking to Australian publication Motoring, senior manager of product and brand communications Mark Flintoft didn’t shut down the idea.
“The Chevrolet Blazer is a stunning looking SUV, however, we have nothing to announce at this time,” he said.
Holden has been busy bolstering its SUV and truck lineup while simultaneously launching the ZB Commodore—the brand’s replacement for the locally built Commodore sedan, ute and sportwagon. The ZB Commodore hails from Opel.
Holden has also plucked the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and 2018 GMC Acadia for its lineup down under. The Holden Equinox launched last December, and recently added a diesel engine option, while the Holden Acadia will arrive by the end of this year. The Blazer could sit between the Equinox and Acadia; the latter of the two offers three rows, but the Blazer does not.
Even with fresh product to target the growing SUV segment in Australia, the Equinox hasn’t cracked into its rivals’ success. In May, the vehicle found just 2,000 buyers, which puts it well outside of sales leaders that sell over 10,000 units per month.
