I can't see why you would buy the more expensive model, but some people must be buying it. Chevy wouldn't put the price there if no one would buy it.
They have to put the price there. Nissan is protecting their product. Do you really think they are going to hand over a proprietary product to a core competitor and not insulate themselves to a degree? There are agreements in place that when a manufacturer lends another thier design to be sold as a rebadge the rebadge cannot be priced within X of the original.

Dacia Duster/Nissan Terrano is a perfect example...

Being the successful brand they are they sure are smart enough to do this, plus to go through a process like that it has to go through a lot of people in a position of authority in the brand.

no matter how you protect yourself

by giving your tech to a competitor
it allows them to see how its made and the development and manufacturing behind it

so no matter what you are giving them information that previously was unobtainable.

That have to be protecting themselves in some way unless the collab is extremely vital to their success.

well in this case Nissan is paid for the vans by chevrolet up front. because its being made in a nissan factory, chevy wont be learing any manufacturing secrets any more than if they went out, bought one and reverse engineered it..
