That is the vehicle I had hoped the Bolt would be. It is bigger and a bit heavier, so it might have only got 220 miles of AER instead of 238, but it is much better looking and even roomier. That is the car GM needs.

Here's hoping that the new crossover will be offered with the following:

- Sunroof
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- AWD
- Power front seats
- Homelink

Similarities to the FNR-X aside, if it came with FNR sheetmetal, I'd be all over it, but for some reason, the GM picture evokes a "meh" from me. It looks too much like a reworked Bolt than a real CUV.

- 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)
My comments above in Bolt and Italics.

If all this gets added, what are guesses at the new MSRP? $10k more?

Some of these features would be bundled in packages. The AWD would probably be a separate option, cost $2-3k.

Looks like a restyled Bolt with the front hood made more horizontal (less aerodynamic). Note the odd lack of a charge port.

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.

odd ack??? Sounds like a CS term, even and odd parity, ack/nack protocols, old school serial bus drivers

I’m slowly getting drawn back into this forum, need to go dark again....

It would be a difficult choice. Fully loaded CPO Model S's go for that much and are significantly bigger. Plus Autopilot and Supercharging.
