    Chevrolet News:Chevrolet Brings Back the Blazer As A Crossover

    It's not fast, but it's not Encore slow either. With the 9 speed auto it will be okay for the target audience.

    Size? weight? difference for difference sake? GM product planners don't talk to each other? Makes no sense to me either. The 2.5 is not a great choice for this vehicle or the Acadia.

    Na, they'd have to use TrailBlazer. Just like they need to use Electra for any electric Buick.

    I know what I'm getting next!

    What do you have against diesel style low end torque?

    Chevrolet News:Chevrolet Brings Back the Blazer As A Crossover

    No, the 2.5 is not the mild hybrid version. It's the basic 2.5 from the Acadia. I like that RS and Premier get the advanced AWD with Twin Clutch. That means they could, should they want to, build a TrailBlazer (Think Colorado TrailBoss) version credibly. After sleeping on it. I do think I really like it.
  7. All of the GMs and the RAM could move production to the US. The cheap ones will probably just get cancelled. The ct6 plug in could be built here, they just sell most of them in China.
  8. Consensus is that the new #ChevyBlazer is polarizing. What do you think of the new look?

    Well there you go @regfootball , the sporty GM crossover you were asking for. Me? I kinda like it, and I’m just glad there is the 3.6 liter instead of the 2.0T from the Traverse. Good tie in to Camaro too, I wonder if there is actually any parts sharing there or just in appearance.

    Mazda News: Rumorpile: Turbo Power for the CX-5?

    Yes please! I know I'm saying no more turbo 4s (for me), but this well make a great crossover even better.
  11. We don't pay tariffs to other countries for items exported from the US. The customers in those countries pay the tariff. We pay very few tariffs in this country and the ones we do pay are quite low unless you're trying to buy a truck from Germany...

    Volvo News: 2019 Volvo S60: A Swede with An American Accent

    The C70 had a diesel in EU. But yes, I'm sure somewhere in history there was a Volvo without a diesel engine. Perhaps its the first Volvo without a diesel since Chinese ownership? Something I've had to learn at work recently. Don't assume malicious intent.

    Updated.... but again, the off-road options on the Overland are optional Top-O-The-Line is the Summit that has all of everything and can top out at $63k with a diesel. The Trackhawks and SRTs are above that, but they're not really offroaders like the Trailhawk, Summit, and Overland are.

    Lexus News: The Uncertain Future of the Lexus GS and IS

    The 2.7T with electrification would be more than enough to move an Escalade around. A 3.0TT in an escalade would be too much in a country where gas is already over $4 a gallon. I got 27mpg out of it in a CT6, but an Escalade couldn't count on that.
