To be in the market for a full-sized SUV and not consider the Chevy Tahoe or Suburban is just silly, really. Most of those who buy these huge utilities have a reason and/or a need (whether valid or not), and that’s why these big truck-based behemoths continue to exist, even in the face of hostile fuel regulations and what some would call a shrinking market.
With market shares in the 50% range, the current Tahoe and Suburban siblings are the two dominant competitors in the full-size SUV segment. GM’s market share in the sector is even higher when you add in the platform mates from GMC (Yukon) and Cadillac (Escalade). And even though the GMT900-based units are great trucks (aside from a few cracking dashboards), it is indeed time for an update, as they have been around since the 2007 model year.
We’ll keep you updated as we hear more about these much-anticipated vehicles. In the meantime, feel free to occupy yourself with the C7 configurator.
