Ya know, GM rebadging never really got my goat like some other members. I always figured if dumb little differences like leather seats or the availability of a beefier engine helped sell domestic products I was all for it. But this is totally ridiculous, it's like the entire descision to buy a Captiva or Outlook is based on whether you like the Chevy Bowtie more than the Saturn badge. I know I know, that's not the whole case, because the Outlook appeals to the family crowd more and the Enclave appeals to the wealthier crowd more and all that jazz but c'mon!

I should probably mention that none of these vehicles are sold alongside each other in the same market... with the exception of the Chevy Captiva, which is sold in the same markets as the Opel Antara, and in Britain with the Vauxhall.

So it's not like one would be able to really choose between one or the other rebadge where they live.

I saw an ad for the Chevrolet Captiva yesterday. I had no idea that it would become such a whore. I am shocked but not completely surprised.

I still think the Trailblazetc. and Corsa are GM's two biggest in-house rivals for rebadge king, even though in the Corsa's case those tend to be for different markets. The Trailblazetc. has no such excuse.

Well, there's the Torrent, the VUE, (I mentioned the Outlook on my previous post, which was a mistake seeing as how the Outlook is on the full-size Lambda platform, all these fucking Greek Alphabet names confuse the shit out of me) the Captiva and XL7(kinda) which are all available in the US. It's not as bad as the latest generation of GM minivans, the Uplander/Relay/Terraza/Montana fiasco but you still get the same damn vehcile and the same damn engine and the same damn suspension.

and my friend has a Chevrolet Captiva. It's nice, but I can't justify the price he paid for it. Yikes.

#8, I also don't understand the weight of them, either... for being compact SUVs, they're real porkers.

#9, something like 3600 lbs I think..

But in all honestly, the high weight and relatively low power (?) means its impossible to roll one? I don't know.

#10, Well, being a unibody carlike-structure, it's obviously less prone to rollover than a ladder-frame trucklike SUV...

...and they're 3800lbs, with a gross weight of 4800lbs.

#11, ...holy shit. They're heavier than my damn wagon :O Here I thought a 3600 lb wagon full of batteries was slow. Actually it isn't terrible, but I can go.. 75 in "EV Mode" :O

#12, It still drives me nuts that my mom's Tracker, which was not all THAT much smaller than these, and was based on a ladder-frame trucklike platform, was only 2800lbs.

#13, Surely there can't be 1000 pounds of safety shit, can there?

#14, Not just safety shit, but electonics convenience doohickeys and sound deadening and cushier suspension.

...and don't call me Shirley.

#15, Still seems silly for it to weigh that much.
