On the avalanche they had a crazy design that while a lot of people thought it was ugly, it sold well. They change the design to make it look like what everyone wanted and sales plumetted to 1/3rd what it was before, never recovering until they pulled it off the market.

GM needs a new VP of Marketing.
A) Not a production car, so nobody will be able to buy it anyways.
B) Most of Avalanche's decreased sales were because of 1500 Crew Cabs. GM was always reluctant to build light duty crew cabs until Avalanche.
