SUV sales have been increasing so much they've outpaced passenger cars so this is worth the gamble as far as i'm concerned. Call me crazy but $50k is worth it.

While it may be more expensive in top spec, consumers these days want options. The Edge ST may be cheaper in top spec, but it only comes prepackaged. Here's a breakdown of the trim levels for the Blazer.

1LT- $33,495
2LT- $34,495
RS- $41,795
Premier- $43,895

While aftermarket brand can still take advantage of supplying to buyers of brand new cars, down the road as more restrictions get placed, OEM packages will see growing interest.

A solid buy in price, but I don't see there being much demand for the 4 cylinder. Was not expecting there to be a $20k margin between the base and top end spec. SUV's are quickly going the same route as pickups.

Unless we see noticeably better fuel economy in the entry level model, then I'm inclined to agree. For a brand new model the pricing structure is fairly normal, and if the Blazer is successful we'll probably see more standard kit for the next MY.

starting from just under the $29k mark in the US, almost no one has an excuse to not get one.
its essentially an attractive SUV that carries on design traits and DNA from more attractive models like the Camaro.

The newest generation Camaro is the worst it's ever looked imo. The response has been so poor that GM has already said they are pushing out a refresh asap. Luckily the borrowed designs cues on the Blazer are from the previous gen.

I agree, not a huge fan of what GM has done with it either. This is the wrong direction for them to head in if they ever hope to take market share from the Mustang.

I'm just after the typical character we see in the Camaro's design which no one can argue, but i do have to admit, execution of the new Camaro was poor.

At least they got it partially right with a lighter and more nimble platform, shared with the Cadillac ATS.

At least with what we're seeing from SEMA is looks like they are already exploring electric powertrains for it. If they can bring something to market before Ford introduces their hybrid Mustang, that could help them get on top.

If that means we get more of this new type of Camaro in the form of other performance focused Chevy products then i'm all for it. A "Camaro sedan" would be ideal.

I would hate to see Ford and Chevy 'sedanize' their pony cars, and to be honest the only reason why I see it happening with the Mustang is because Ford has left themselves no other options. I know that the Cruze has been doing quite well for Chevy.

Yeah Chevy has a plethora of 4 door sedans and subcompacts, so there is little need to do this with the Camaro. If they do it will be in reaction to interest in Mustang sedan, which I don't see happening.

taking after the germans has always been a good idea in my books and historically it played out well for them, what to say buyers in cheaper segments don't want the same thing?

Sedans aren't selling, so whats the point of turning the Camaro into one? If you're shopping for a performance muscle car like that, you don't really have a lot of interest in practicality.
