New Silverado High Country from TFL.
In the presentation it looks like the High Country will be made to compete with the King Ranch, Laramie Longhorn, and Toyota Tundra 1794 while the upcoming Sierra Denali will compete with the F150 Platinum ad Toyota Tundra Platinum.
I'm sure it's ALL marketing ploy by GM, as I'm sure the High Country will be 1-2 optional features short of a Denali. I've sat in a King Ranch, a Platinum, and the F150 Limited, and quite frankly, the only difference is a colors and a badge.
I'm glad GM is going to enter the ultra luxurious pickup segment. These cowboy Cadillacs are HUGELY profitable.

From what I saw, in that vid, it's a trim package added to the LTZ.
You've got ta love the "branded" leather seat.
A friend has the Dodge LL and it is a nice trim package. this looks like a similar trim.
I wonder if the new Tahoe will have it as well (including the big engine).Ray

I actually considered a Denali when I bought my 2013 LTZ if I did not HAVE to get the 6.2L engine. IMO GM made a mistake by making the Denali have the more gas thirsty 6.2L engine ONLY, I hope GM does not do the same to the 2014 Denali and removes those ugly LEDs around the headlights.

From everything I've read GM is discontinuing the Avalanche and Escalade EXT, apparently lack of sales.
Looking at the figures, GM sold ~24K Avalanches in 2012, and ALL combined Escalade sales (Escalade, EXT, ESV) only sold ~23K. In contrast, GM sold ~27K Yukons( Yukon and XL ) in 2012. GM sold almost as many Avalanches as Yukons in 2012. Since 2009, the number of Avalanche sales has done nothing but increase. Now that GM is making the Avalanche look good, why axe it?
It would seem to me that GM should keep the Avalanche while probably discontinuing the Escalade EXT.

the front end is to busy, to tall, the fender flares, especially the front ones, are massive, the inside is nice, except the dash cluster, along with the radio area.
