Watching Barrett/Jackson live as they sell a 74 Bronco. They said that it came from the Bronco, Blazer, Jeepster family. Guess the new Blazer will be a distant relative! Ha.

Yep they did. Doesn’t change the fact that my last 2 Camaros were built in Canada.

I guess this new design language works better on SUVs but the new Blazer is really pulling off the new Camaro look which makes me feel like the 2019 "facelift" of the Camaro is even more questionable
The side pieces of the facia have a stopping point and frame the grill on the blazer. It makes sense. The side pieces on the Camaro go no were and have no purpose. They look like an afterthought. Unfortunately they did so good on the Blazer that it really makes the Camaro look bad ,and that's a shame.

New York (AFP) - General Motors confirmed Friday that it will produce a new sport-utility model in Mexico.
The new version of the Chevrolet Blazer, a revival of an old brand name, will be built in Mexico and exported to the US, said GM spokesman Patrick Morrissey.

The side pieces on the Camaro go no where and have no purpose ? Maybe air flow and cooling more precisely ? You can hate all you want but giving wrong info is not smart . Ferrari has used the similar type of design on there F12 TDF for years . Ill add a link

New Blazer Hecho en Mexico = Sales flop
New Bronco made in USA = Sales success

Im talking about from a looks point of view. Afterall, the complains arent about the cars's function. My opinion isnt wrong information just because it doesnt agree with your's as your's isnt wrong just because it doesnt line up with mine. Hate has nothing to do with it. The world is becoming such a cliche.

So airflow is a good reason for a bad design? Did 2016-2018 had a bad airflow?
How those ugly cheeks help airflow?

Airflow is not everything, otherwise we will have a huge hole as the front of the car
