Bike Question

This is somewhat of an update post for my bike searching. I decided through some bike shop testing and from friends that i wanted to jump into a full suspension bike, i originally set my budget at 2200. I was doing some research on some bikes around those prices, and wanted to ask some recommendations on the bikes i list. I am not familiar with newer bike parts since its been awhile. Let me know what you think of these bikes and if its worth for me to spend a little more on something else.

I have the abajo peak its a great bike. I found out about it on a review from a youtube channel that reviewed 7 bikes in the range. mine in that range was the best for the money. the 2019 stance was reviewed and was just as good but the 2020 is probably better because the components. I am not that familiar with the commencal bikes but they get good reviews.

I just bought a new Marin hardtail, but if I were in the market for a 2k fs bike, I'd have a hard time laying off the Fezzari.

Why did you choose the Stance over a Trance? Seems the Trance is a better comparison for the other two.
Commencals are nice bikes but I'm not a fan of their linkage for smaller travel, I've ridden the AM 27.5 and liked it.
No Fezzari experience, though even with superior shocks nowadays, I've mostly moved onto multi-link designs, I find them more progressive especially in the tops and bottoms of the stroke.
Plenty of good single pivots out there, they just appeal to me anymore. Out of the three, if a Trance is an option, I'd go that route. Giant and Santa Cruz suspensions are my favorites, even though I currently don't have either.
