General Motors reintroduced the Chevrolet Blazer nameplate for the 2019 model year as an all-new midsize crossover. Although the new Blazer garnered attention for its sharp styling, functionality, and range of tech, traditionalists voiced their displeasure over the nameplate’s use on a unibody crossover, as opposed to a body-on-frame SUV like preceding generations. Now, however, an automotive artist has drawn up a full-size Blazer model that looks ready to tackle to the trail.
Posted to Instagram by user @wb.artist20, the new full-size Chevrolet Blazer rendering is based on the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, specifically the off-road-oriented Trail Boss trim level. As such, it adopts the same front fascia styling as the latest Silverado, with squared-off features and C-shaped lighting signatures. The grille section is finished in black, while a pair of red tow hooks sit next to small fog lamps in the bumper. A black Chevy Bow Tie is found front and center in the center divider bar, while a smaller Z71 badge is located in the grille corner.
The profile is particularly attractive, with a two-door body style and large rear glass section. An additional Z71 badge is found on the front fender, and there is black trim around the windows and door handles. The wheels include the familiar split five-spoke design finished in black, while off-road rubber grips the terra. The body also stands tall, giving it all the right stuff to satisfy all those purists out there.
Add the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 to the mix, and we could see this thing become a big hit with fans of older Chevrolet Blazer models.

Here’s my edit of this Silverado Z71 into a Blazer. Subtle change to the headlights as well. Do you think a full size Blazer would sell? • • • • • #blazer #chevyblazer #chevy #chevrolet #silverado #trailboss #z71 #z71silverado #z71offroad #redesign #cardesign #render #rendering #cardesigncommunity
