Glad I don't need a big SUV. The expy looks 15 years old and the chevy has a hideous grill.

Black paint does hide the hideous grill well I'll admit that

Cruising out in the GTO today with my son, we were out by Dekalb, so I figured I'd see if they had a new one in stock (McCue already has a few that I checked out). He took these pics;

FWIW, only Tahoe's have come in. Suburban's, Yukon's (either wheelbase), or Escalade's have not made it in to stock yet. With COVID, production is being pushed in to 2021.

C&D reviews and likes it;


MT reviews the 'Burb and has mixed feelings. World class powertrain and handling (once you find the way to adjust the mode), but let down by the interior and electronic wizardry;

Fox news;

Detroit Free Press;

Autoblog

There are many more, but just trying to give a "flavor".

Thats strange as there is no way in hell I have felt that way lol.

After being in this truck a few weeks, I absolutely love this thing. It has to be the most comfortable SUV I have ever driven. Imo the redesigned interior is awesome. Sport mode definitely wakes the truck up and it feels like it moves for what it is. I dont know if because my Hawk sat so low, but this thing overall feels huge and very tall. Ive had pretty much every Tahoe thats been out and this feels like it sits higher than any of them by a large margin. Lots of real estate to cover on a hand wash though lol. Has noticeable rail dust and other shit in the paint. Hopefully my back heals up soon so I can do something with the paint, still need to do the Wifes Cherokee as well.

Edit: I get a ton of compliments on this truck. Everyone always says it looks way better in person.

i agree with you.

it's in the motortrend article.

The Suburban's underlying mechanicals, conversely, are excellent. From the first moment I floored the accelerator, I assumed that the engine was the honkin' 420-hp 6.2-liter V-8. The engine felt that strong. It was only during a chat with the friendly Chevy PR guy that I was informed I was driving a mere 5.3-liter V-8.



he also bitches about trying to make it "FIT" through a starbucks drivethrough so take his shit with a grain of salt.... contrary to everyone's silly thoughts... suburban's aren't HYUGE

This was bizarre. Shawn had already bought and driven his before we were even allowed to talk about our drive and review. Chevrolet had an embargo on impressions. Has happened before, but not for as prominent of a car like Tahoe.

I think it looks better in person.

I think Johnny Liberman (who poo-poo'd the interior), is in the minority here. Most seem to like it. Is it perfect, no.

I guess my question is how long can we excuse these interiors when they are asking 65+ grand for them. I will admit they are way nicer than before but that was a low waterline.

I get the whole price point issue especially as they continue to skyrocket, but I guess I'm not as wrapped up in that as I tend to use mine hard. I would hate to have such a super fancy, rich leather, plastics, or authentic wood trim, then shove something in it and scratch the shit out of it and cry that my $80k Suburban got a tear in a nice pleather seat.

But I still want nice digs too. I guess I'm getting at I want a nice balance of a nice environment to sit/drive in, with it being not so nice that I fuck it up looking at it.

you're not going to hurt it first off, second off you're not buying one regardless because you swing from your 20 year old one too much.

the interiors have been excused for 10+ years as that's how long they have been over 65k. maybe even longer.
It’s par for the course with American interiors. Even Caddy uses sub-par interior materials compared to Lexus, BMW, Audi, etc.
