Description:
Another one of my rebadge collages... this time, the GMT360s! Sadly, unlike my previous ones, every single vehicle here is sold alongside each other in the same goddamn market. (well, except for the Olds which is gone along with its entire friggin' brand)

KW: GMC Envoy Oldsmobile Bravada Chevrolet Trailblazer Isuzu Ascender Buick Rainier Saab 9-7x

I think I've seen more Ascenders than 9-7x's (and I've only seen about half a dozen or so)

I can honestly say I've never seen that Bravada before. The last Bravada I remember was the Chevy Blazer type. It's also amazing how similar each vehicle's wheels are.

#2, But the Buick has... *dramatic pause* EIGHT spokes in its wheels! *shock*

...and the Bravada was the official pace vehicle for an Indy 500, shortly before Oldsmobile's death.

I'll take the one with the Vette engine. But more to the point, I can only shake my head and wonder about this marketing strategy, I know that badge engineering has existed since the dawn of mankind where hairy little GM executives were crawling out from under rocks and naming cars after the shapes their feces took when they threw it against boulders. It's like they don't even know what demographic they want to go for and instead offer options to every market segment available instead of packaging them all within one or two SUVs. Want some horsepower? Get a Trailblazer SS. Want some luxury? Get a Envoy Denali. Want luxury sans the bling bling appeal? Buy a Rainier. Hate the domestic brands? Buy an Ascender. Fuck that noise...

Saab should have got some crossover thingy based on the small SUV platform or something, but with different bodywork. Never noticed that the Ascender is just an Envoy with a differant grille, as well. Buick did a good job of rebadging the Bravada, I'll take a Trailblazer SS, out of all of these tho.

#5, Yeah, it would have been kinda neat to see a Saab take on the Theta or even Delta platforms. Maybe use the latter and develop a little wagon with a sport tuned suspension and a flat-4. But then there probably wouldn't be a market for it except for among the automakers fanboys. I was suprised they jumped on the SUV bandwagon with the 9-7x.

I do have to say, out of all of these, the Rainier was my favorite, aesthetics-wise... I even think the Rendezvous was a rather good-looking crossover, too... I don't think they got the respect they deserved for their styling... they sure as hell looked better than the current LaCrosse and Lucerne.

#7, I never liked the Rendezvous, but I quite liked the styling of the Rainier. The TrailBlazer SS solved a lot of the styling problems the standard model had, too.
