Ima start this party off as the countdown is on... And so we don't continue in the expo thread...

Spy shots (yes, it still has camo and other stuff on it to hide things, one of those is the IRS);

https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1116925_2020-chevrolet-suburban-spy-shots

Many other sources (C&D, MotorAuthority, Trucks, etc are all posting the same pics). It won't let me copy the image URL's, otherwise I would do so.

The first prototype for the redesigned 2020 Chevrolet Suburban has been spotted, revealing a few clues about the upcoming SUV.

General Motors is in the process of redesigning its full-size fleet around the T1XX body-on-frame platform for SUVs and pickups.

The platform is an evolution of the current K2XX design and swaps out some steel for aluminum to shed the pounds. We hear it might help the new Suburban shed close to 300 pounds.

The recently revealed 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 are the first vehicles to ride on the T1XX. We expect the 2020 Suburban to arrive in late 2018 or early next and to be followed shortly by a redesigned version of the smaller Tahoe.

There's a lot of camouflage gear but the design of the vehicle's face, especially the headlight treatment, looks to have been borrowed from the latest Silverado. We can also make out the angle of the C-pillar through the camouflage gear and the graphic of the taillights also sneaks through.

Despite the best attempt of the engineers to hide the rear axle, we can clearly see an independent rear suspension instead of the current generation's solid rear. This is likely in direct response to Ford's latest Expedition and should significantly improve comfort levels.

The other big news is the wider range of powertrains expected for the new Suburban. There's a good chance we see GM's new 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-4 with cylinder deactivation fitted—yes a 4-cylinder Suburban. The advanced powertrain, which makes 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque, has already been announced for the Silverado.

A 5.3-liter V-8 should also be offered, possibly with the more advanced Dynamic Fuel Management cylinder deactivation technology that can vary the engine's firing between one and all eight cylinders. And at the top of the range should be the 6.2-liter V-8 with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque currently available in Suburban RST trim.
So yea, IRS and now potentially the turbo 4 as an engine choice.

So let the pontificating and dick wagging begin. :D

Holy crap, they have cylinder deactivation in a giant SUV powered by a 4cyl? When does it kick in....between 50 and 54mph and only with a tailwind?

Bet the tahoe is going to look sick, they get better with each redesign

I hope they go back to taking the Silverado front clip and throwing it on the SUV's unchanged.

In the front shot, you can see the horizontal bar for the Chevy grille, so it stands to reason that it's more upright like the trucks instead of angled back some.

Spy shots (31 of them) of both SWB and LWB Escalade...

https://www.autoblog.com/2018/12/14/...#slide-7486595

As I look closer, both of them look like Chevy's to me. One a Tahoe, not an Escalade and the other a Suburban not an Escalade ESV. Look at the grille in the pic below. It has the horizontal bar and Chevy style mesh.

A D-Max and even a 3/4 ton (err, "HD" version), works for me. I'm ok with the chrome if they don't go with that shark fin style C-pillar treatment like the Traverse.

Current gen chrome doesn’t make sense, it’s only on half the side windows. All or nothing.

Actual engine RPO's are starting to leak out...

L87: 6.2L N/A EcoTec3 V8 (from the new Silverado's obviously)

Then this is the important one... Grab your panties to hold them up...
LTA (The "Blackwing" V8): 4.2L TT DOHC V8........ ~550HP & 620 - 630 lb/ft of torque.
