    This is written poorly.

    $67K for this thing? For that money, I'd get a GL350 BlueTEC, which is way more comfortable for passengers, handles decently, and gets acceptable fuel economy (26 MPG on the highway).

    Alternatively, I'd get a Durango, which gets crossover fuel economy but nearly the capability of a full-sized SUV.

    I agree with empowah that for Tahoe LTZ/Yukon Denali money, the Mercedes GL (and the upcoming Audi Q7) seem like more attractive propositions. I suppose the high price and cost cutting measures like the lack of an independent rear suspension are what happen when a company is driven to maintain their 20K margins than seemingly anything else.

    After reading this write up, the thing that sticks in my minds is 66k! For a Tahoe! GM's profit margin must 25k per truck.

    Although better looking, GM is finally getting their interior appointments up to the level of the 2007 Navigator, which I applaud, but it sure took them a long time to do it.

    We'll see how the next Nav is and make our next SUV purchase decision. I've always been a GM guy, but when we checked them all out (large SUVs with room for 8/9), the Nav just was a better bargain all around.

    Interesting article - but wholly smokes $67,000 thousand dollars (granted it has all the toys) but still, and PLUS TAX this is a $70,000+ dollar ride. Dunno, approaching Toyota Landcrusier territory, just say'in...

    According to Edmunds.com "build and price", the LS 2WD starts at $44,600. I guess that's more palatable to some.

    Yikes, the cost of entry on this truck is staggering. I can't see most of the people driving an older model today ponying up 60-some-odd thousand for a new one. At that price point a slew of other family vehicles come into range including-- as mentioned above-- a number of luxury marquee models.

    You keep mentioning a high ground clearance but the front air dam/splitter looks very low to the ground for a 'real' SUV.

    A trim piece between the dual front turn signals on each side would be a hot aftermarket item

    What a disaster. Offset steering wheel since 2001? FAIL! HIDs only on the very top model? FAIL! 37 inch rear lift height to accommodate useless third row? FAIL! $67k price tag? Hysterically funny FAIL! GM has done some nice work since their bailout, but they've really screwed the pooch with this thing. Expect to see a flood of them on the used market in three years when the leases are up and the rental companies dump them.
