Chevrolet unveiled the 2020 Silverado HD lineup this past week, but we caught a glimpse of General Motors’ new full-size SUVs in the process.
GM Authority snapped a photo at the reveal, which took place in Flint, Michigan, of a slide that showed all three new SUVs hiding under photoshopped tarps. The 2020 Chevy Tahoe, 2020 GMC Yukon, and 2020 Cadillac Escalade were all present.
The automaker hasn’t officially begun to tease any of the three SUVs, but we do expect them to debut later this year, or in early 2020. The 2020 Escalade could be first on the docket.
The fact GM included the SUVs in the presentation (nothing makes its way into a slideshow by accident) may show the automaker is closer to an official reveal, though.
We expect all three SUVs to feature an independent rear suspension for the first time. Spy photos showed the 2020 Chevy Tahoe sporting the setup, which should help create better on-road characteristics, yet retain towing and hauling prowess. The lack of a solid-axle design may upset the off-roading crowd, however, which have long preferred the setup for strength and articulation over rough terrain.
Where the IRS will likely provide the most help is in the Escalade. Cadillac will likely try to hone the SUV’s driving dynamics, especially as the Lincoln Navigator continues to produce stellar sales results. It’s worth noting the Ford Expedition and Navigator have used an IRS since 2003.
Look for even more differentiation from the 2020 Tahoe and Yukon to the Escalade, too. We expect a unique interior to the Escalade, along with the potential for Super Cruise and perhaps exclusive engines.
Stay tuned to GM Authority as we bring you the latest on all three SUVs.
