With the TrailBlazer leaving us, we are stuck with a Tahoe/Suburban or 2 different crossovers. Will GM give us small truck-based SUV for the poor folk?
Exactly. I'm guess GM doesn't feel as though there is a market for such a vehicle. I'm also the kind of person who would love to see a full size K5 Blazer come back, so what do I knowMaybe size wise almost, and only for the non XL versions. But they're still crossovers, not BOF SUVs.
I'd rather take a Subaru Outback off road.Next-gen Equinox is supposed to fill the void left by the GMT-360s.
True, but I don't see any new BOF SUVs in the works, so one can only assume that GM's plan is to have the Equinox and Terrain replace the GMT-360s. There was a rumor that GM had an X-terra sized SUV in the works...but I think that died.Maybe size wise almost, and only for the non XL versions. But they're still crossovers, not BOF SUVs.
a basic H3 is, well not cheaper, but not much more then a crew colorado here.....after rebates and a little discount a H3 comes in around 36, a crew colorado starts around 33-34 here, not much diff...The Frontier and Xterra were EXACTLY what I had in mind when thinking about this. I will be getting rid of my GTO for a 5th gen Camaro. At the same time I will be buying a DD. I like the Colorado and even enjoy driving it, but an SUV would be much more useful for me, but I don't want to spend the coin on a H3.
For me, something the size of the Colorado in the spirit and style of the Blazer ZR2 with a six speed manual, big off road tires, minimal chrome, and the 2.9L Diesel would be perfect for me.
Gm will probably charge $35K for that if they ever do offer it.
They are making the new Colorado on the global T370 chassis which is supposed to support SUVs (think Frontier and Xterra chassis).
And I've seen quite a few "Grand Churrkees" pulling boats to the spillway at 3am Saturday morning...I'd rather take a Subaru Outback off road.
The trailblazer replacement doesn't have to be BOF so long as it is off road capable and can tow a good sized bass boat. The Grand Cherokee is not body on frame, and up until recently, it was fairly capable off road.
It would probably be cheaper to build it on the T370 chassis.
As have I.And I've seen quite a few "Grand Churrkees" pulling boats to the spillway at 3am Saturday morning...
