Interesting anyway .. Because of my Support of the Last Local Family Dealership in my area, Choices will either be GMC/Buick .. Have felt like part of their Family for over 10 Years and Been Treated Well and Fairly ..
So there must be a large class of buyers out there (lets call them descendent of Goldilocks) that look at the Trax and say ..hmm a bit to small and then try the equinox ...and say darn that is just too big.
Otherwise i do not understand the whole spectrum of SUV sizes that is being proposed.
I agree, the Encore/Trax & Envision/Equinox/Terrain sizes do seem to have a following down here in SC . Not sure how or why a size in between those two would sell.
The Encore will soldier on as its sales are still respectable but the Trax has been going downhill. I think the new Trailblazer and its GMC brother the Jimmy (my guess) when it comes out will be the replacement for the Trax. Flooding the market with CUV's will not do GM any favours as it will only serve to confuse the public.
