Looks good. I wonder if the rumors of a v12 escalade are true?

And then there's this asshole...

Is it maybe because it's 2005?

Re: 2007 Suburban and Escalade spy pics

When is GM going to realize that they can sell Duramax based Suburbans/Yukon XLs?

I never would have even looked at the Excursion if they were available. I ran a big block (whatever the current big gas GM SUV block for the Suburban is) with my trailer at the request of the dealer (who claimed it would beat the diesel Excursion) and saw roughly 6 mpg. Even with the current skew on diesel vs gas pricing, it's no contest when I get 15 mpg pulling the trailer with the Explosion (while the Ford gets ~ 20 without the trailer and the Suburban's best was just under 14 with the big gas motor).

The Suburban/Yukon is a much better package and doesn't ride like an SD 350, but until it gets some torque and runs with the 6 liter diesels, I'll keep running the Ford.

Abtech:

GM is introducing a detuned diesel to run in g-vans and suburbans. THe problem with the current duramax is that the Allison tranny is so big it won't fit in those chassis'. ANd their normal 4-speed auto would pile up under the power of the duramax. So they've had to develop a 200 horse duramax that they could pair with the regular tranny.

Long story short: there will be a 200 horse duramax powered suburban. The Excretion is discontinued for 2006. I just bought a 2005 for my fleet, I"ll probably get a few more.

edit: The 2006 allison is a 6-speed and costs another grand

And then there's this asshole...

Re: 2007 Suburban and Escalade spy pics

Not that it really matters, but the light-colored Chebby in the "spy pics" is a Tahoe (which is obviously a lot like a Burb, but shorter). Hopefully they'll equip the next-gen Tahoe with rear windows that actually "roll" all the way down...

A 200 horse Duramax? Eww!?!
I think the "correct" answer is to redesign the chassis to accomodate the Allison, or to design a tranny that will fit the bill. I need a more powerful engine than the 5.3; my Burb slows to a crawl when towing (a mere 5000 pounds) even in the Allegheny/Appalachain mountains (hills).

Here's hoping the new full-size Chevy SUV will be able to accomodate the beefier engines and trannies...

Re: 2007 Suburban and Escalade spy pics

GM is also releasing a high-performance 6.0L gas truck engine for 2006, presumably to contend with the HEMI. I don't know what the horsepower is yet, but they are offering a package in a half-ton truck that comes with 20 inch wheels and low profile rubber.

I hope it's the 390 horse corvette motor used in the SSR... Hopefully it would be offered in a suburban or Yukon.

The 2006 trailblazer SS has a corvette motor. You couldn't give me a Trailblazer though.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: 2007 Suburban and Escalade spy pics

That's what I tried telling my wife, "Get something bigger than a Trailblazer" but after watching / riding with her, I would be in constant fear for "Joe Public" with her in a Suburban or a Tahoe.

Love the woman to death but,,..... LOOK OUT!!!!!!

I think you should buy her a Canyonero...


Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
Smells like a steak, and seats thirty five?
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down
It's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Hey, hey!
Twelve yards long, two lanes wide,
Sixty five tons of American pride!
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Top of the line in utility sports,
Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts!
Canyonero! Canyonero!
She blinds everybody with her super high beams
She's a squirrel-squashin', deer-smackin' drivin' machine
Canyonero! Canyonero! Canyonero!
Whoa, Canyonero! Whoa!

And then there's this asshole...
