You know I had forgotten. The Blazer and Equinox cargo numbers are almost identical also. The Blazers game is v6 and wider cabin vs 4 cyl only Equinox with a bit less width. When the new style Equinox came out I remember it being criticized for pie in the sky msrp but now equinox sticker prices are insanely less $$$ than the blazers out there and the blazers only have a bit more real space.
Yes I can see exceptions for a good used car or if the price to get it just becomes ludicrous.
I passed on a really nice used sportback regal a few months ago it was an essence but it didn’t have blind spot monitor and I probably should have gotten it anyways. It didn’t have adaptive cruise either.
