They're on a roll with their recent offerings, light years ahead of the competition.

Just from memory, just in the Chevy camp:
1. Trax - the crappiest of crappy crap boxes. Reserved for 80 yr old people whose last GM died before they did and they see the need to keep driving.
2. Equinox - slightly larger crap box for people that should be buying a CRV or Rav4, but want to buy something new that explodes instead
3. Upcoming Trailblazer - Probably the same size as the Equinox....but squinty and sportier looking turd shape. Literally no difference otherwise, I suspect.
4. Blazer - The disappointing son of the legacy Blazer...this is the son wearing skinny jeans and one of those hipster beanies. 1 inch bigger in all dimensions that Trailblazer and Equinox. Somehow they have the balls to ask up to $50k for one of these, which is appaling.
5. Traverse - For people who need a minivan, but love GM build quality. The biggest of the non-truck based crossover turds.
6. Tahoe - Truck based SUV. Laughable cargo space behind the 3rd row, but is at least big enough for full-size adults in all rows. This is the first one on the list that is not completely embarrassing.
7. Suburban - For you, your family, all of your stuff, and enough towing capacity for a bigger camper or large boat. Good tool for those who need it. Hilarious tool for those who do not.


I suppose I'm bored this morning, lol
Gave me a good laugh.

Have a few friends who lease/own some of those midsize GM SUVs and like them, but I never was crazy about them (much better options at the same price point, IMO).

Of the lot above, the Tahoe is my favorite and rental go-to if I need an SUV. Thought about buying one a couple times - it's an expensive sucker after you check a few options, but a solid SUV with plenty of room for my needs.

Eh....for the as-new price point I don't see it. The S4 was about the only Audi that I considered, and it was too small on the inside. The only Mercedes I would think of is the E-class, and I was scared off by repair costs on any of the AMG models.
