With that said, I like it a lot.
Likely I'm biased, as a kid my parents used to have A K5 Blazer, proper V8 one.

That said, the S10 was indeed a bit dull, and the Trailblazer even more so, but that name lives on on a different car anyway (and that, funny enough, is actually a rather proper offloaded nowadays with separate chassis and proper 4WD).

This is not a bad vehicle, don't get me wrong, just a mix of other cars (with IMO little Chevy identity) and it should have used a name with less history as such....
