As demand tapers off for the Trax i can see it possibly being eliminated in about 5 years. That being said, it doesn't look much different than the current Chevy Blazer, in fact it's like a new trim level if anything comes to mind. They're going to take the drive train from the current Equinox and slap them into Blazer bodies, instead of the current 3.6L V6 which makes the Blazer higher priced than the current Equinox.
That could hurt Trax sales in the long term, but in my opinion it would hurt Blazer sales more. If you can get basically the same truck with some off-road capabilities for $10K less than one that it looks exactly like it, why would you pay the extra money other than to brag about the engine size. I know if it was available in that configuration when i went to the dealership, i would be in the Trailblazer forum instead of the Trax Forum.
