The interior has grown by leaps and bounds each generation. Well done.

hahaha, this is the best part of this thread

The last Tahoe/Yukon/Suburban/Yukon XL was redesigned in 2007, keep in mind kids the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator were also 2007 redesigns. I'm very excited to see what the Blue Oval has in store which should be very soon

Exterior is disappointing, interior reminds of a Equinox but larger, doesn't look bad though, hope materials are good.

Also, I think it's funny GM's way of fitting in fold-flat seats was to simply raise the load floor and return to leaf springs in the rear instead of the last gen coil springs. That's one way to do it....
Really, leaf springs and solid rear axle??? Ford has had an independent rear setup in the Expedition and Navigator for 10 years now. Granted it costs more, but it allows the rear floor to be a lot lower, thus a lot more cargo/passenger room. The IRS is why Ford has had that folt flat power rear seat for the past 10 years.

Only reason IMO why GM has been ahead of Ford in this BIG utility segment is that the GM products offer more power, better fuel economy, and steer/drive a heck of a lot better. As far as interior packaging/space, Ford has had it all over GM for a while now.

Agreed, Expeditiom/Navigator twins have had a comfy 3rd row vs competitors for years

Who buys these anymore?

I would have thought that they would go back to offering a base model V6 to increase fuel efficiency. Shows what I know...or does it?

^Acadia and Traverse fill that niche, I believe.

Good point. Basically the same size but more for suburbia and shuttling kids and groceries rather than towing boats - enter Yukon and Tahoe

I used to wonder who still bought these too, but a few camping trips to the mountains, lake, and beach confirmed it all. There is still a large demand for families and retirees who need to tow recreational equipment.
