Thumbs up Photoshopped Small Trailblazer

I think it's a fairly safe assumption that the new trailblazer is going to come to the US eventually. Who knows when, but I think it will get here. The trailblazer is a small truck compared to the tahoe. But i'm a 2dr Blazer owner, I'd like to see a truck that was more of a Wrangler competitor than an Explorer competitor. With that in mind, I photoshopped up a couple of TB pics. Using proper scaling, both images have an accurate 100" wheelbase, as opposed to the regular TB's 112".

This is sort of my dream truck, so it will never get built but here's the hypothetical specs on this machine:
  • I'd like to see it of course with the 2.8 turbo diesel option, among any other optional engines
  • The back doors are "3rd" doors on both sides, like an extended cab pickup or a Mazda RX8
  • Instead of a lift-gate, it would have a more old school lift-glass, drop down tail gate.
  • Of course, the 3rd row is bye bye. The 2nd row would have to be in-between the rear wheels, and so just like the 2 door S10's, it would probably have to be a 4 seater instead of a 5 seater.
  • Since the roof can't come off, maybe an extra large sunroof or double sunroofs to get things open more. Unlike the RX-8, the "3rd" doors would have roll-down windows, not just pop-outs
  • This truck could come with a "less refined" interior, and be priced in line with a wrangler, or at least in the neighborhood.

I would buy the **** out of this truck.
Also, what a great platform this would be for that concept but sadly not really happening ZR2 package they put on the Colorado.

This would be a great truck for me. The smaller size would make it more maneuverable and easier to park in the city. It would also be a bit lighter, so it should get slightly better gas milage and be slightly faster than the regular model. 4 seats are sufficient for us single, child-less people. No need for a 7 seater here.

Also I read that GMC was working on something along these lines, a "real truck" based small SUV. If it were this, that would be cool. Although the concept images that came with that article were terrible.

no offense, but that is a pretty ugly design I do understand you photoshopped it yourself...

personally, I'd like to see something like the canyon made into an SUV, perhaps shortened a tad or whatever. Something very capable off-road, small enough to get around parking lots ok, big enough for a family with 2 kids.

Again it only looks ugly because it was a photo of the already-ugly south american trailblazer. If I photoshopped up a shorten version of a north american trailblazer (which doesn't exist, but just take the american colorado and apply to the traillazer), it would look great in a short version.

i did once see some customs shop make a 2 door widebody Trailblazer SS, though it's one-of-a-kind with very extensive bodywork
