    So the Equinox is not rated to tow anything now?
    No way this could ever replace our S-Blazer.

    Ok, i didn't even see this post, why would you have the nox and verse in with the trucks when they are car based.... just a thought. And i didn't see the colision detection and lane departure listed over there either. Confuses me a bit since it was brought out that the TERRAIN was getting a bevy of new tech yet none is listed other then the "mylink" deal. Some changes lok good others jut make me wonder....
    Current:

    You don't live in Michigan where vehicles get really cold in the winter; I've been wanting to put a heated steering wheel in my '08 GMC Sierra for a while now, but the only ones available were the Denali and/or Escalade wheels with woodgrain that wouldn't match my interior.

    If they will now be offering a heated wheel that is just leather wrapped and will match my interior, I can buy one and retrofit it into my truck.

    That's all I'm getting at.
