None of these features seem unique to the Blazer, aside from the locking locking glove box. Will be a great feature when using a valet or leaving your car unattended for longer periods of time.

Agree.

Design is an improvement in regards to what GM has been doing up till now, but compared to the greater market, its nothing special.
I will however give them credit on the Blazer RS even though the rear end is lacking (IMO).

It's a mass market vehicle and GM has included the kit to match this. As a first generation model, they have to play things a bit safe, at least until they can establish a consumer base and determine what changes need to be made moving forward.

We might have to look out for what brands like Toyota do because they're able to be risky without suffering much, if they move, Chevy will.

I don't think there is going to be much demand for the entry level 4 cylinder, as that's really going to restrict the Blazers utility. Maybe they will just consider turbocharging it in the future?

The focus should be on what type of 4-cylinder setup because a big displacement 4 banger with forced induction can perform near small displacement V8 output range.

To be honest I doubt that Chevy would place and inadequate 4 cylinder in the Blazer just to meet their 'green quota'. Heck even the new Silverado is moving to a 4 cylinder engine and its got better outputs than the outgoing V6.

They'll be looking for other vehicles to use that engine, with or without the same turbo, but often car makers variate what certain components do to get the max returns.

Yeah but fuel economy has taken a dive in the process. The whole reason of going towards a smaller engine should be for better efficiency, but a high revving engine is going to prevent that.

Sadly they are only working on short term solutions.

On the other side of the coin... Tesla is targeting the long term, not just with going electric but build quality all throughout.

Are we talking about the same Telsa that delivered Model 3's where the rear bumpers fell off? That is not the company to reference for build quality.
