I think the Blazer will be in a niche not filled by the Santa Fe or Edge.
    They look different because they are different brands, size of the three are comparable.............

    So the Blazer is in a different category because it doesn't look "mainstream" or is it that the Sante Fe is mainstream because it looks mainstream?

    That's my point, not only did the Viper die, it died twice! The Vette is unique; GM - 1, Everyone Else - 0

    GM should have taken your advice with regard to the Cruze.................

So yes, it makes sense to dial back production.

    But, to loop it back to the original premise, that GM is always behind, this is a case that GM was ahead.
    Blind squirrel, GM didn't have adequate capacity at launch, now that it kicked out some vans to 3rd party, production is pulling back.............

Dialing it back to the original argument "GM is ALWAYS behind", in this case GM saw the value of rebuilding Cadillac long before Ford saw the same value from Lincoln.
    Yup, XT4 and XT6 a little late to the game; then you've still got that mess of a dealer network.............

    GM has been rebuilding Cadillac for 30+ years, so yeah, they started sooner; it was only a few years ago Lincoln was on the bubble of existence.

    I would hope they are ahead in something.................

    Yeah that is ugly, they would need a completely new front and rear for the US market.

    Then I guess you should thank them for getting rid of it. Now maybe you can start getting used to having both hands on the steering wheel.

    At least until they get rid of that too.
