Our spy sleuths have caught a mysterious CUV doing rounds of the Mountains of Colorado.  The CUV seems to be a resurrection of the Chevrolet Blazer crossover. We expect the car to be revealed earlier next year at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show.

The prototype spotted here seems to be the size of the Equinox and current generation Traverse. If the rumours are to be believed, Chevy is preparing to bring out an all-new Blazer after a decade of retirement. Discontinued in 1994, the Blazer was the smallest full-size SUV version of the Chevrolet C/K family. The resurrection of the Blazer nameplate could mean that it would fit between the compact Equinox and the full-size Traverse. The cladded test mule does not carry any familiar design of the new upcoming 2018 Traverse, but it closely resembles the Equinox. There are LED lightings in the headlamps, the windshield is quite raked and the D-pillar is almost erect with dual exhaust pipes sticking out at the back. The wheelbase seems the same as the GMC Acadia and Cadillac XT5 which means this mystery CUV will be based on the same C1XX platform which also underpins few more vehicles under the GM banner. The powertrain is expected to be a V6 mated to the new nine-speed automatic transmission.

The new vehicle will compete against the likes of Ford Edge, Nissan Murano, Kia Sorrento, and of course, the Buick Enclave.
