A sufferer of the recession and excessive fuel costs, the unique Envoy – associated to the Blazer, and extra just lately the TrailBlazer and comparable GM SUVs – was discontinued after the 2009 mannequin 12 months. In as we speak’s SUV-happy market of low fuel costs, unearthing the considerably acquainted Envoy title makes a certain quantity of sense. As quickly as fuel costs begin trending within the different route, we’ll all be saying the alternative, although.
What this SUV will take form as is the massive query now. With the Chevrolet Blazer properly and really on its approach, there’s each purpose for a GMC model of Chevy’s trendy new crossover sporting the Envoy title. One other, much less possible, chance is a Traverse-sized automobile to fit between the shorter Acadia (10 inches shorter than the Chevy Traverse) and the body-on-frame Yukon.
GM may come out of left subject and make the Envoy a Buick too. It suits the invoice with the “En” starting, and Buick undoubtedly has crossovers within the works. We expect that is much more unlikely, but it surely’s essential to keep in mind that we’re nonetheless within the hypothesis part. Quickly we’ll drive Chevy’s new Blazer, and maybe have extra information then. Verify in subsequent week for that.
