Bronco hype is in full swing after Ford revealed the long-awaited sequel to the OG SUV back in July. But the Bronco isn't alone! Ford's longtime rival Chevrolet had their own SUV rehash in the Blazer over a year ago! But why didn't the Blazer create as big a splash? And why might that not matter? We're gonna find out.

The S-10 Blazer was my first vehicle (1993). I went mudding/off-road in it and it was a blast. This new Blazer won't see a dirt road. It sucks mah balls.

That’s easy. Cuz the bronco looks like a proper off roading vehicle while the blazer looks like a friggin lifted Camaro. If you’re going to make a truck/SUV then make it rugged looking. Ford killed it!

Typing this at 6:15pm on 10/20/2020 mountain time. GM created the Blazer like that so as to make the ABSOLUTE BITCH slapping that the Hummer EV just gave to the Bronco that much sweeter. Suck it Ford!

The Bronco 2 problem was like the full size Bronco changed to was independent front suspension using the Twin Traction Beams. The Bronco being less wide made it able to roll. The Twin Traction Beam TTB is amazing IMO. It is famous in off road and off road racing for 4wd and the equal length design on 2wd. There is a crowd of more hardcore off road guys that call it weak and do Solid Axle Swaps making it like the 78 and 79 full size bronco for strength. While the TTB off the lot with lift big tires etc... was more prone to break there is advantage to smoother ride. The solution from off road racing is the hardcore winner. The TTB instead of dropping it lower for lift with a bracket is cut and turned near the wheel for lift angle keeping the higher stock mounting location. It is stronger and has more ground clearance. Plating and gusseting the beams for strength makes it much stronger. Changing the radius arms to stronger much longer with large heim joint mounts to the frame and removing the stock anti sway bars gives it way more wheel travel . Making shock towers for much taller shocks and using modern position sensitive bi pass reservoir shocks taller springs or coil overs with 2 springs of different rate make it amazing. Many lengthen the TTB making the wheel width wider. Adding s frame rail to rail taller rear shock tower with upgraded leaf springs or a 4 link rear with coil over shocks to a roll cage and strong rear axle make the Bronco the SUV to rule the desert and other off road ! The mud pit trucks built for mud do better for deep mud though. The Ford Raptor is the best off road off the lot new truck is great but not cheap. Its new model on good shocks has 13" front and 13.9 " rear wheel travel up and down to soak up bumps at high speed. My late 80's Bronco now has 17" and 18" on King Shocks the #1 rated in off road racing. Both with the same tech and high quality. Fiberglass fenders and bedsides often required for tire clearance and much more work and parts done to make it new and perform. A built engine , Transmission pro built ! Transfer case build and improved, Steering upgrades, drive shafts, brakes, gears with lockers, limit straps, high amp alternator all new bearings, seals and U joints and more tricks of the trade from desert race teams. A lot of work or a lot of $$$ to have it done but less than a Raptor by a lot if you can do a lot of the work. A mind blowing performance off road over rough trails fast not spilling your drink and not breaking when the surprises on the trail come up. A good sound system is a great plus IMO too. I have a permagrin just thinking about it and had other improved common lift kit 4x4 trucks after my first 2wd truck. Still get amazed at what it does in 2wd ! With 4wd when activated. Can the new one keep up for 100k ? with this old model build espost.info/download/v-deo/f3-ShX2pi8PcgXY

Picked up a 2004 Blazer in good shape for $2500 because I needed something to pull my 19 foot sailboat. Did the job for thousands of miles. Was surprised to see all the electronics and AC still worked on it. Was just looking for a tow vehicle. New vehicles capable for doing that sort of towing are silly expensive.

I've owned 3 S-series SUVs over the years. An 83 Jimmy, an 88 Blazer, and an 05 Jimmy. All 4x4s, the last two were 4.3 V6 powered. I had the 05 from brand new. This new Blazer makes me sick. I'd kill for a modern K-5 Blazer.

I'll be honest here. Have you noticed the only off-road vehicle left is a Wrangler? And yet is owned by an Italian car company now. I cannot blame Jeep but I can blame Chrysler for selling 100% ownership to Fiat. The FJ Cruiser failed, 4Runner failed, the Bronco May Fail. All full size trucks have gone IFS. All full size SUVs are now four wheel independent suspension. The market now are Crossovers and SUVs used for luxury and transporting people and their goods. The off-road rugged SUV and trucks of yesteryears are no longer here today. What we see is what consumers want. And consumers wanted the Blazer and a Trailblazer and that's what they got. I disagree with the name but that's what Chevy did and that's what it's going to be. The current Blazer is a fastest selling crossover right now and Chevy cannot keep up with the supply and demand.

The last time we saw a Blazer it wasnt a Off-Roader, it was a regular SUV sold from I think 90s to the mid 2000s, it sure isnt the one we remember, but from an evolution point of view, a "boring" SUV is just right, the Blazer was long gone from its off-road roots before this new version was released.

The unions are a special interest group that puts union interests ahead of consumer interests. The UAW and it’s members own the majority of GM and this the union essentially runs the company. This has not gone well for GM. If the company doesn’t do well then the union can only blame itself. GM quality seems much lower than in the past.

This is Flat Out "Bull Shit". American auto manufacturers are making poorly designed parts that need to be replaced at a very highly parts that makes the vehicles unreliable as well high costly to maintained & operate . In short they are killing there own customers. I predict that American auto manufacturers will have to only make military's vehicles to keep going or change there way of thinking. If not They will die off . I saw this coming down the pike in 1976 & they have only gotten worse . It will only get worse as too greatly for the $$$$$.

The new bronco is competing with the Jeep Wrangler. An off road vehicle, a weekend warrior. The new blazer is competing with vehicles like the Toyota Highlander, the Honda pilot, the ford escape, jeep compass, the basic mid-size crossover/suv family style vehicles. Is it the blazer we wanted? Ha! That's pretty obvious. But GM wasn't going for an off roader. They went for that sporty crossover market. And I feel they did very well at that. To say it's a miss is like telling mcdonald's they missed at making tacos. It was a completely different goal and design in mind.

Chevy should have tried the 4Runner model. A base model Luxury models and a more off road model on the same frame. Then again does the Blazer have a frame? That works for the Bronco. I guess Chevy does not want a repeat of the Blazer lawsuits. Only fair to say that I recently bought a 4runnner. The Bronco is the only thing that might have gotten my attention but as a rule I don't ever buy first year cars. Besides for that the 4 runner already has a great reputation for longevity and dependability. I do hope the Bronco can match that record. America needs a winner.

I really believe that the Jeep was alot better deal. The salesman told me that Chevy was coming back with the Trail Blazer. Problem is.....only 3 cylinder engine.

Why are we comparing apples and oranges? Bronco and the wrangler are alone on the off road category, the blazer is ol just a city suv just like the other ones not even the 4Runner can be in the same category as the Bronco and Wrangler so I think this video is way off!! Blazer, highlander, pilot, pathfinder etc are in the same category as city suv with limited off road capabilities!!

The Bronco works cause Ford knows that value of the nameplate and made sure it brought something to the table, especially for such a niche segment. Chevy basically warmed up the Equinox, threw in the Camaros interior (cost cutting as usual) and tried to market the Blazer as a sporty Edge competitor.
