Its a decent starting price but it may be hard to justify spending that on a vehicle with less than 200hp. Have to wait on some road tests to determine how this 4 cylinder engine performs in such a heavy SUV.
They could have gone for cylinder deactivation among the other systems and configurations that allow for lower MPG numbers.I sort of feel like that maybe they had to offer a 4 cylinder just to satisfy government regulations. Not expecting it to be able to tow or haul much with that engine either.
the idea has been on the table for a while, GM was just waiting for a good time to pounce. even a far back as the late 2000's they were playing with the idea via a Cadillac "Provoq" concept.Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles might become more of a reality with GM products for the public. Already they're working on military application. That right their will be proof of concept for a broader roll out that won't be as demanding or stressful on these systems.
