General Motors doesn’t skimp when it comes to off-roaders, with a broad variety of vehicles available to those who like to get a little dirty. That certainly doesn’t look like it’s going to change any time soon, with vehicles like the GMC Hummer EV introducing a new all-electric chapter for The General’s trail-ready offerings. Now, we’re getting a look at this exciting Chevy two-door SUV concept, which could very well provide the inspiration for some future model.
Coming to us from the GM Design Instagram feed (@generalmotorsdesign), this concept was created by GM Creative Designer Darby Jean Barber (@darbymx5), and includes a front three-quarters view and rear three-quarters view. Although there’s no indication what this vehicle might be called and when it was drawn, the large “Chevrolet” script placed on the nose and the tailgate makes it clear which brand lays claim.
From the off, this Chevy two-door makes its off-roading aspirations crystal clear thanks to a lifted stance and big, knobby off-road tires. The front end is creased and angular, with the hood-line divided from the front fascia by a single black strip visually connecting the upper lighting elements. The lights are arranged in a stacked, horizontal layout, with the topmost light extended into the center crease. Below the stacks, we see a vertically oriented fog light.
The front fascia indicates that this thing is likely all-electric, which, as we’ve seen from the GMC Hummer EV, offers certain benefits for the off-roader crowd, including precise torque application, four-wheel steering, a low center of gravity, and more. The upright greenhouse also reminds us of the Chevy Trailblazer, as does the two-tone roof.
Moving into the rear, we see the tailgate equipped with carbon fiber trim, which complements the side sills. Stacked lighting elements similar to those up front are repeated in the rear, while up top, the sleek roof treatment terminates in a curved spoiler element above the hatch.

While obviously just a sketch, this thing certainly has our attention.
