I know someone that drove both a Tahoe and Blazer.Being FWD based one of my concerns is how it feels in the 0-60. Great numbers are one thing but the experience coming from older RWD Blazer is another.
Its easy to find people who hate this move to FWD/FWD-biased AWD compared to previous generations, but like them, maybe i'm wrong?
They've owned RWD SUV's all their life and were completely turned off by the Blazers feel. That's not to say the Blazer is bad, its just not for everyone. Chevrolet is hoping to attract a new crowd of SUV buyers with the Blazer and that's what they'll get. It might also explain the Blazer's more global approach compared to GM SUV's of the past.
