Oh I did not know the Blazer was packing 300+ HP. That adds a little twist of spice to them. However I still do not like crossovers.

The article says it is a hybrid. I can live with that, as long as there is a gas motor that will continue to make those wonderful exhaust notes. An all electric vette would kill it for me.

You can't really compare a modified car vs. a stock car. Its apples vs. oranges. It should not be hard to get a 'SS to go quicker in a straight line than a ZL1.
