Imagine a world where the interior of an $80,000 Cadillac Escalade ESV doesn’t resemble that of a $40,000 Chevrolet Tahoe. It’s pretty hard to visualize, considering what we’ve seen in GM’s line of full-sized SUV models since… since ever, really. But for GM’s K2XX sport utility vehicles, due out around the turn of 2014, designers have reportedly slaved over differentiating each offering from Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC, down to even the door panels.
What’s more, both the interiors and exteriors of the next-generation 2014 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe and 2014 GMC Yukon/Yukon XL will even be noticeably different from the 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups that were recently unveiled — which gauging from your comments, received mixed reactions. This isn’t anything revolutionary, as the current Chevrolet and GMC trucks carry a different design from their SUV companions, but it’s nice to see the pattern continuing and even evolving.
“They will appear as completely different interiors and they will look like completely separate vehicles,” GM interior design manager Chris Hilts said to Car & Driver. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the 2014 Cadillac Escalade, to admit the least.
