    or
    2. Build it as a 3 row FWD CUV, that would've actually been worth the premium over the Traverse.

    The Edge got away w/ its pricing on the ST because it had a TTV6 w/ 350+/- horsepower. The Blazer just has the standard corporate 3.6 which makes it just as quick as the 2013 Equinox.
    Hell,I'll take the 350hp Edge ST all day everyday over the Blazer. Lower it a couple inches and a catback sysyem and sometuning and look Mom I have a somewhat modern day Typhoon from a company a few years ago I wouldn't have even thought of buying a vehicle from.

    Chevy is offering me what? A ugly Equinox?....pass.

    so .87 g is impressive, but my experience with fwd based gm vehicles is that they dont hold up if you try to drive them hard.

    To imply any resemblance to the Camaro based on the dash vents is crazy! That and the Bowtie are the only resemblance I see!

    Hate to be that guy, but why would you drive a FWD crossover hard?

    Because they don't make a TBSS replacement, so that is the only choice we have if we are remaining loyal to GM yet need the size of a CUV/SUV.

    1999 Tahoe 4x4 - daily driver
    1999 Camaro Z28 - bolt-on weekend vehicle
    2015 Equinox LTX - wife's car

    I'm loyal to no brand...they're not giving me a discount nor paying me to cheerlead so I'll buy/drive whatever suits my wants/needs. You should give it a try

    My last car purchase, I needed a large CUV for my wife and 4 kids...it came down to the Atlas RLine, Enclave, Durango RT, and MDX. The Enclave checked all the right boxes, had the most room, cargo space, was the 2nd most comfortable and most importantly...the cheapest.

    This Gal drives her FWD based AWD 2013 Explorer Sport very hard.............. especially in cornering (with the TTV6 you don't have to use much throttle to go fast). So much so, that I wore out the edges of my last set of tires when there was still plenty of tread.

    We wanted to buy a 2013 Boss 302. We get snow. No workie for a daily driver based on that. So, my Mommy Mobile had to be fun to drive. My Explorer Sport fits the bill, looks great, and can hold a sh** ton of stuff in it. It was a win win.

    BTW, I built my 1991 Mustang GT for handling (would pull over 1G), and loved SCCA racing. I understand that I am not the typical Crossover buyer, but we do exist.............. and I see Explorer Sports everywhere (they started breeding in my small town after we got the first one).

    And as an aside, I think the styling will polarize a lot of people too.

    There needs to be a defeat switch for her too.

    It's the fact that nothing in the Blazer is class leading. It gives GM's own customers a different vehicle to buy instead of outside customers a reason to buy a vehicle.
    Exactly. I built one like I might want being modest with it too, came to $39,425 for an AWD Cloth with the convenience and confidence pkg. plus cargo and interior protection pkg. Everything else above these basics for me just gets overly expensive.

    I have always been pro-GM, and a Chevy man. I think that the GM I loved has changed and is no longer the company I was so in favor of. While there are some on here that are just here to bash GM, I am not one. I care, also If I didn't care, I wouldn't bother to post.
