This vehicle when combined with the GM Terrain are the front row sellers in the mid size segment . The added feature of sliding the second row seats back for extra roominess must be part of what makes this combo a huge seller . By shortening this model , what will it do to the best sales booster you have in all the world....recommendations by satisfied buyers?? Also , happy owners who wish to sell their older Equinox model and buy another new one ,,,,what will their reaction be to not being able to do so ?? I'll repeat my old overused mantra " as a retail seller , YOU SELL WHAT SELLS " . Frankly , my opinion is that it is foolish to play with success . Again as a seller , look to replace a best seller only when sales start to slide , not when sales keep building !! What are your thoughts here ??
