To be clear, TV commercials are a subset of advertising. Advertising is a subset of marketing.

GM does a pretty good job of marketing the Camaro. They just don't use TV commercials. And it only...

That's a really BIG IF.

You won't get the V8, and it's PERFORMANCE, for the same price as a V6.

The LT1 is very likely less expensive than the V6. DOHC engines are not cheap. 4 cam shafts and...

Proportions would suggest Omega based not Alpha. And would a Gen7 off of Omega be nice. It would have the weight of Alpha and the size of the Zeta. But that would be expensive.

Yes you are correct. But the point I was trying to make was the the last Blazer was introduced in 1983 on the S/T platform. There was no 1999 K Blazer.

Bad math on a quick post :(

The only confirmed DOHC V8 is going in the Cadillac CT6 for 2019.

I don't believe GM has even confirmed the Mid-Engine Corvette, let alone what engines might or might not have.

Nice, but the moderator HERE shut his first thread down for the title and the not related post. All the OP did was use the same words in the title to start it up again.
