Why Did Chevy Do This?

Why did Chevy change the LS in 2005 as the upper trim level to the base model in 2006+?

because the base model was when the car just started out, at first it went base ls lt ss, then they realized the base and LS were very similar and just combined the two but then it got complicated with models like the LS, LT, LT1, LT2, LTZ, SS/NA, SS/SC, SS/TC, coupes sedans, yeah there are about 20 different types

Why does GM keeps changing it's trims instead of sticking with same ones lol... let's look back at 90s... GT, GTZ, GTU, Z26, Z24, etc...

I think it should just be like this

Base
LS
LT
SS

Rest are just options, chrome outline on grille and chrome handles don't need to have it's own damn LTZ trim.

2010 Cobalt SS: Full Bolt-Ons, tuned. -- Sold.
