#1 of 44 2007 Chevrolet Suburban/GMC Yukon XL/Cadillac Escalade ESV

GM is redesigning all it's full size pickups and SUVs to stay competitive. If you've seen the pictures of the 2007 Tahoe and Yukon, you know they've done a pretty good job on the outside and inside.
The Suburban/Yukon XL/ESV are coming at a bad time for GM, as gas prices are high, and Ford is bringing back a large competitor based on the Expedition.
All these new GM trucks and SUVs are expected to debut at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show.
Please post pictures if you find any.
Cadillac Escalade ESV

I dunno'. I find the new lines to be a bit less interesting. Perhaps more elegant and smoothed out, but they've lost that 'in your face' opulance and ruggedness that the predecessor had.
I saw gas today (in Tucson) for $2.39. (now that the oil companies took their pint of blood from the american public) Not so expensive any more. People will line up to buy into this piece of metal and find out what rack and pinion steering and 400hp feels like in a big SUV.

The headlights are smaller, so that explains why the "in your face" look is gone. It makes it looks like an SRX or CTS.
Anyway, I'm just glad they nailed the interior. It's now right at the the level where the Navigator, LX470 and Range Rover are at.
And 403hp!!! Wow, the old Escalade was never short for power, but 403 is just amazing.
The next Navigator and upcoming Aspen better be good......

3rd row seating: Will it fold and hide into the floor? Will it be a one-piece, or 50/50? or better, 60/40?
#5 of 44 Diesel Engine in 2007?

I read in a magazine in Barnes and Noble that GM was offering a duramax diesel engine in suburbans in 2007. That is all of the information the article had. Has anyone else heard this?

Here are a few spy pics of the new surburban. If you notice it's a 2500 because of the 8 lug wheel pattern. click here to see the pics
#9 of 44 don't need spy pics anymore

the GMC web site has plenty of photos and info, at least of the Yukon length.
That 5.3LV8 DOD engine seems to be the hot ticket. Good power and a claimed 21mpg on the hwy. Better than most mid-sized SUVs get.

UGLY and then some…. Thought it was a Ford. Looks just like the 05′Expedition. Nice original design lines GM really did their homework on this. Copy cats. I can only imagine the engineering nightmares for this new platform.
HOW about a Duramax Diesel in the 3/4 ton models?? GM should be concerned about building a truck for a family, that can tow something besides a pop-up tent trailer! Not everybody wants a pickup.
