Well, the range is a little lower than I had hoped we'd see as I'm still thinking this is going to be what the Blazer SS has but it's not horrible. Fingers crossed they find some more power for the SS.

Very puny performance and range figures. Surely, hopefully, the Blazer SS will have better performance than the Lyriq AWD! I'd be ashamed to call something with a "SuperSport...SS" badge a "SS" with numbers like that! They can...MUST...do better than this!

True on all comments. This is a common theme I'm seeing across the board though on most, not all EVs is that the higher the performance the lower the output. I'm still waiting for Fisker to release any 'real' numbers on the Ocean too. I'm betting it won't be as much as they have advertised. I could be wrong though. But if they can do that much, I agree that GM has got to bring it on their first performance EV.

One other thing I think is that this is a Cadillac........I'm not sure they were shooting for as high as they could. Maybe there's more in there, but they think the typical Cadillac buyer isn't interested in what we're looking for.

Time will tell soon enough.........how many more days til July? Haha

Let's see how many features of the Caddy will be transitioned in one form or another to the Blazer. I am not a fan of the Caddy front end styling but otherwise its Ok.

If Chevy wants to position the SS as a competitor to the MACH-E GT, the Model Y Performance, the Ioniq 5 N, and the EV6 GT, they may want to push past a 4.9 second 0-60 to sub-4 seconds, which will significantly reduce range compared to the Lyriq AWD. I hope the SS does not go that way. Not all will agree, but in my opinion, 4.9 seconds is more than good enough for an SUV, regardless of the badge.
