Just to make the new EVs stand out more. Maybe it's regional, but the Blazer and Equinox names don't really have a strong pedigree in SoCal.
Hmm, they could call it the Chevy LT or the Chevy RS? 😆😆
Seriously, though, I actually just looked back at old Chevy model names. They used to have one called the Nomad. That wouldn't be a bad one to resurrect. Granted it used to be a wagon, but it was discontinued in 1972 so probably no one would hold it against them.
I agree. But for now I am perfectly happy to order the RS EV anyway.Yes, I‘m with you. I get that they want to use familiar names to ease people into EVs, but selling the Blazer EV alongside the ICE version, and same with the Equinox, that’s just going to cause confusion IMO. And it doesn’t let the new models stand on their own and get the distinction they deserve.
