Tuner Teases Two-Door GMC SUV With Removable Roof Panel

The team at Flat Out Autos previews that its upcoming make is a two-door GMC SUV with a removable roof, like the outdated-university Chevrolet K5 Blazer and its GMC Jimmy counterpart. Correct now, the vehicle only exists in this rendering from WB.Artist20.

Judging from what is visible in this graphic, Flat Out Autos is starting off with a GMC Sierra two-doorway common taxi. Though, the wheelbase appears shorter. A detachable rear cap presumably covers a bench seat, if this is like the first Jimmy. 

 

Whilst not seen in this rendering, Flat Out Autos claims the automobile would have a fold-down tailgate, which is a further element from the very first-gen Jimmy.

Motor1.com reached out to Flat Out Autos about the price tag of these cars and a timeframe for availability. Look for an update when we listen to back again.

The company is previously quite familiar with developing autos like this, while ordinarily with a retro look. For instance, Flat Out Autos designed a Chevrolet Tahoe search like a initially-gen K5 Blazer for the 2021 SEMA Demonstrate. It had to style and design new items for the hood, grille, headlights, taillights, rear quarter panels, entrance fenders, doors, chrome bumpers, and tailgate.

Immediately after the clearly show, Flat Out Autos put the car up for sale on Provide A Trailer. It brought $142,000.

Previously, the business transformed Tahoes to appear like early Blazers, but these cars experienced a 4-doorway format, relatively than two for the SEMA create. Flat Out Autos charged $69,000 for these conversions, but purchasers experienced to source a 2015 to 2020 Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon as a donor automobile.

At present, neither Chevrolet nor GMC has a automobile to compete straight against the Jeep Wrangler or Ford Bronco. A thing like what Flat Out Autos is constructing with this task would be a perfect challenger versus them. Nonetheless, there is certainly no signal that something like this product is coming to showrooms, which offers this constructor a market to fill.
