My comments above in Bolt and Italics.Here's hoping that the new crossover will be offered with the following:
- Sunroof - Very Plausable
- Adaptive Cruise Control - Very Plausable
- AWD - Not likely but not impossible
- Power front seats - Very Plausable
- Homelink - Not likely (especially as GM has been removing this from all their new cars)
So here’s an interesting exercise. Let’s assume this is a Buick and it’s based off the Chevy Bolt. So if we were to compare the Trax to the Encore we might get a clue to the pricing.Some of these features would be bundled in packages. The AWD would probably be a separate option, cost $2-3k.
odd ack??? Sounds like a CS term, even and odd parity, ack/nack protocols, old school serial bus driversLooks like a restyled Bolt with the front hood made more horizontal (less aerodynamic). Note the odd ack of a charge port.
It would be a difficult choice. Fully loaded CPO Model S's go for that much and are significantly bigger. Plus Autopilot and Supercharging.So here’s an interesting exercise. Let’s assume this is a Buick and it’s based off the Chevy Bolt. So if we were to compare the Trax to the Encore we might get a clue to the pricing.
Base FWD Trax costs $21895
Premier AWD Trax bumps the starting price to $28495
Base Encore is $22990
premier AWD encore bumps this to $32890 then the power moonroof option is another $900. add $2-3K for ACC we are $14-15k above the base Trax
So let’s add $14-15k to the base Bolt at $37495. Anyone willing to pay $52-53k for this fully loaded Buick (ignoring the tax credit as it would help or not help both the Bolt and the Buick equally). I’d rather spend $50K on an ICEr Suburban or save a few more pennies for a stripper model S or a discounted end-of-year CT6 Plugin.
