Chevrolet is GM’s most popular line but was overlooked when developing the original trio of crossovers because of fears it would compete with the TrailBlazer. According to The Detroit News, GM will cease selling the ‘Blazer by 2010 and that we could see Chevy’s new crossover enter production as early as next year.
Last month, execs struck a deal with UAW workers to produce the new crossover at its plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
GM’s other crossover models have been well received. Monthly sales for the new Outlook and Arcadia have doubled since the beginning of the year and, last month, accounted for almost 4% of GM’s overall sales. These latest crossovers offer owners a vehicle with car-like dynamics and fuel-efficiency but with the interior space of traditional SUVs and have been attracting former SUV buyers in droves.
