In New York, GM unveiled the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. Chevy is promising that the new full-size SUV will be a leader in the segment. Dan Ammann, GM CFO says in a statement, “This is an important and profitable segment and we have set the bar high to ensure we provide our customers with great quality and performance they expect and deserve.”
In Los Angeles, GM took the wraps off the redesigned 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon Denali models.
General Motors says all of the vehicles will feature direct-injected EcoTec3 powertrains and deliver better fuel economy than previous versions. The company is not giving fuel economy estimates, but is claiming that they will deliver the best V-8 fuel economy.
All of the vehicles will be built in Arlington, Texas. General Motors says that it controls 74 percent of the full-size SUV market, and that sales of the big vehicles have surged in the past year. The new versions will feature fold flat seats to increase cargo space as well as more legroom for passengers.
The new vehicles will be in showrooms in early 2014.
