Another Tahoe article

That bugs me that GM didn't bother increasing the wheelbases from where they are now. Why? What were they thinking? Manueverability, Schmaneuverability, every other large SUV has a longer wheelbase-and wouldn't it make sense to base Tahoe/Yukon on the same wheelbase as the regular-cab standard (6.5-foot) box like the 1995-99 originals?

I posted this article by Autoweek and their take on the introduction, earlier. It was deemed unnessary to the discussion and shutdown and locked.

I didn't realized it was already posted-I wasn't sure whether or not to put it in and existing thread-why did it get shut down and locked?

Not really sure. It was simply an ariticle by Autoweek on the introduction. It's a mystery to me. Not wanting two threads was mentioned, but it was the one and only posting about Autoweek and the introduction of the Tahoe.

Typical vague and skeptical media garbage. "GM claims" and "GM claims" and "Even if that proves true" and "Bob Lutz says" Complete with the "GM is about to die (By our hands)" title and shading.

Gee....let's see--because they are the ONLY ones to already offer 2 wheelbase lengths for each model to begin with!?

People who like the short ones like them because they ARE short, but still have room for 5, and can squeeze in a couple more if need be. Plus, on a daily driving basis, they're just easier to move around. On the other hand, people like us, who typically have lots of stuff and the people & dogs to go with it MOST of the time, the lack of having both cargo AND people room turned us off from the Tahoe/Yukon immediately, hence the Suburban.

I could see maybe another inch or so in the shorties, just to free up a bit more leg and cargo room, but overall more important was that maybe the engineers could have done a little better packaging in making a more adaptable 3rd row, like they did with the middle row. Edited by caddycruiser
