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 new blazer looks like every other chevy 4 door station wagon on the road. It has NOTHING that set's itself apart from all the other 4 door chevy's that my grandma owns, Other than the name plate Blazer.

  • I don't know why people need an almost 20 min video to show why people don't want a soccer mom Blazer that is nothing like past Blazers and want a Bronco that is a capable 4x4 that is an updated version of previous generations. (Fyi I didn't even watch the video)

  • The Blazer is a failure, it is selling in ok numbers because Chevy is putting thousands on the hood of each one, whereas Tellurides are selling above MSRP. Bronco vs. Blazer, Aviator vs. XT-6, Ford took longer but developed a better cars. It’s reversed in Trailblazer is better than Ecosport.

  • Bronco: Throwback to a legend, with reminiscent styling cues and the off-road performance to match. Blazer: Just some run-of-the-mill SUV with the Blazer name. Nothing special about it.

  • Interesting that Nolan mentioned the Chevy's not are staying on dealer lots. I have not once seen the new Trailblazer and at least one or two of the new Blazers. Where are the Blazers and Trailblazers going to?

  • GM has gone massively downhill since 2005-ish, or around the time that they bankrupted. Ever since, they have sold vehicles that don't even use their engines anymore, and their quality on their cars/trucks have been horrible. Chevy van is basically an NV now, etc. I think that the new blazer has like a BMW engine in it? The only exception is the vette, but even the it has a flat plane crank now, and is basically some other car. All they had going for them was their lineage. THey're not one of those companies that continue to iterate and innovate. But I still like their older cars.

  • The current Blazer is clearly designed to compete with Edge and Grand Cherokee, not the Bronco or Wrangler. It's not a bad vehicle per se, it just needs to be called something else.

  • the mistake Chevy made was using the Blazer name, and the prestige, for a vehicle that does not fit the bill. they should have given that vehicle a different name. I'm sort of at a loss where the blazer fits in anyway when you have the equinox and traverse that do well in the crossover SUV market.

  • The original bronco and international scout share nearly everything. Ford didn't start from scratch. Come ON, Nolan. I've always been a fan of Donut for their accurate and excellently "condensed" videos. But dude. LOOK at the two next to each other. They are the SAME vehicle. Just for some reason international thought it'd be a good idea to start with half a pontiac block for the base engine. Learn your stuff.

  • That was the biggest disappointment but eh maybe chevy knows they're driveway princesses that barely see dirt. The new Land Rover Defender was also a big disappointment as well. Still functional as land rover does Independent suspension with capability really well

  • Because they made the blazer look like a toyota/Lexus. They've ruined some classics by straying away completely from what made them great. The impala looks like a Malibu. Camaro was alright but they basically keep recycling and putting out the same car. No monte Carlo or caprice. The trucks look boring. Smh.
