    Running one of the largest GM truck and suv websites online today does have it's perks. GM has recognized GM Truck Club as a serious online community and they give us special perks. Like inviting us to the Dallas reveal event for the all-new 2015 full-size suvs.

    The first thought that comes to mind is that these vehicles are quality built. They're designed to be quieter, more fuel efficient and even better GM has listened to consumers and got rid of the clunky removable 3rd row seats in favor of flat-folding seats.

    Want to learn more? We've got a preview video and discussion thread for each of the four new vehicles. Please take a look and join in on the conversation for the entire full-size platform launch in this thread.

    interesting! To me the suburban looks like a ford flex on steroids. I don't know if I like the idea that the suv is not sharing the same body panels as the trucks. I am glad that it looks like they brought back the fold flat seating in the second row. I also found that the 2nd and third row are power folding. It will be nice to not have to lift that 3rd row seat out every time you needed the room. I like the front end on the suburban much more than the yukon xl. The yukon's looks unfinished and cheap to me. It is also interesting to see that the yukon and suburban have completely different front clips, instead of like the past when they were the same trucks with a different grill.

    Yeah, they heard loud and clear that people didn't like the old removable 3rd row seats at all, so they designed these fold-flat seats (not the same as a stow-and-go, which is more complex) which I asked and they said there will be no problem at all getting a full sheet of plywood in this at all.

    @Steve great!! It may cause me to in the far future buy a Burb for my family as well as keep my Tahoe. I'm just waiting to see towing numbers and if tow hooks and a Z71 package will be options. I personally like them and think they look fresh but keep to tradition.

    I like how the dash is different on the Tahoe and Yukon. Since there are pictures of the Yukon Denali, I assume there will be a Tahoe High Country?

    Well, I think I like the look of the 2014 Chevy/GMC line-up. But I'd love to have one of these parked in my driveway. I like the Denali in any year. Great line-up when you compare to Ford Or Dodge Ram. Just my $0.02 It odd and sad at the same time. I was watching the Mecum Auction over the weekend and one of the hosts made a very in-depth and long range sad forecast, He said as the camera was on a 2012 ZL1 Camaro he said " You know, people should be scooping up these late model cars and trucks up with the V8's and the high output engine as we're living in an era of motor vehicle decline. Soon the EPA and the government will not allow a V8 to be produced for much longer, the MPG mandates and emissions imposed soon will put these truck and cars out of range of the normal Joe ! "

    I answered in the blog thread before I saw this.
    We were just having a conversation at coffee this morning about getting the cargo area coming back. Yea!

    If I save my pop cans up, I might have enough by the time they come out. Any word on the 2500? We're gonna need a new chief / medical truck at the station

    I'm with Pikey, too. Maybe the Silvy front end will bolt on at the firewall...

    I did hear a TON about the HD trucks, but I can't talk about that for about two weeks. Sorry. :-?

    Glad to hear that you like the cargo area. I actually think it's such a smart move ... these are just so awesome compared to the current generation's third row that it's night and day how much better they are.

    They are both terrible looking. The Tahoe/Suburban looks like a Nissan NV and the Yukon/XL looks like an Infiniti QX80. GM really needs to work on some original design ideas. I'll hold out for the HD trucks.

    That's EXACTLY what I thought when I saw it. I happen to really like the Flex, so the styling sits well with me.

    I like the Denali interior, looks very classy but the color scheme on the Suburban is ... interesting.

    Thanks for the pics, fun to look at.

    The interiors look good. The features and specs look good. The fold flat seats are a great improvement. The overall styling, however, leaves me cold. I'd have liked the Suburban much better if they'd carried over the Silverado front clip. The 2014 Silverado looks great! The new Burbs, Hoes and Yukons look to squared off and boxy to me. Too many sharp edges. I'll probably be barbequed on a spit for saying this, but my favorite versions for these trucks were the 2000-2006 years. I liked the rounded edges on all the body panels. If I buy one of these, it will be because the features and specs, not the new styling. Meanwhile, my trusty old '99 Suburban is still going strong!

    Too much change perhaps, exterior appearing very Ford'ish. :gasp:
    GM interiors could use a little FoMoCo comfort touch, though GM drivetrains are superior, IMHO.

    By the by: Did GM return to the Torsion bar front suspension for 2015, or stay with the coil over shock?
    I absolutely prefer torsion bars, because they are bullet proof and adjustable.

    Well, I saw the videos and photos, and I like what they did. Either way, GM will sell them like hotcakes.

    Last week at the dealership while having the oil changed, there was a fully loaded 2015 Suburban on the showroom floor. It was absolutely beautiful. I love the dash compared to the 2012 Silverado and the rest of the interior was impressive.

    Only only complaint along the entire Chevrolet line is the 2x4 across the front grill. Chevy needs to come up with a new look. Almost all front ends across the the entire passenger car line look the same. From the front end only, it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between the models. As for the entire truck line if you look at a 1995 and 2014, not much difference. A styling queue is good to have but after twenty years it is time to for change. In 1993 the Honda Accord was the top selling car and today's Accord looks nothing like it, Now look at the old chevy's and the new ones, that board is still across the front grill.
