The interior looks to be a huge jump from the current models. Very sharp. Now my question is, how in the hell could this interior (or at least a variation of it) NOT be in the Silverado/Sierra?

Updated with the same horsepower and torque ratings as the 2014 Tahoe/Escalade, etc.  My 08 Mercedes engine has more horsepower and torque than the 2021 Tahoe from similar displacement.   That 5.3 is almost as ancient as the Tundra 5.7 V8.

You really need to start informing yourself before trolling this hard. Everything is completely new from top to bottom.

These seem very carry over so is this new or a mid-cycle refresh?  The body panels on the side look the same, the center console is carry over, engines are carryover with the addition of the diesel.

Independent rear suspension is a big improvement as is the air suspension.  Good adds there.

Front end is ugly on the Silverado, it's ugly here.  I don't think Chevy has made a good looking car since Ed Welburn left, C8 looks good, but outside of that, Chevy builds some of the ugliest cars on the road right now.  

(Looks at the new GLA and thinks some folks have no idea what “ugly” really is).

Wow. If that really is the escalade it sucks. Worse than the chevys suck. Can we assume then the yukon will just have the sierra front on it?

the pic reputed to be the next Escalade I saw had a front very similar to the XT6 but larger...

Not the prettiest thing I've ever seen, especially in Z71 guise. Then again, almost every single thing Chevy has released in the last 2-3 years has looked worse than the outgoing model...and I typically like newer vehicles. 

Oddly, it doesn’t bother me. I don’t care for the current gen nose and think the 07-13 models looked better. I do wish they not do a spot on match with the trucks though. At least the last two gens ditched that approach to better results IMO.

So GM spent money to develop a completely new engine that makes the same horsepower and torque as the 2014 engine?  That was a waste of money then.

At first look that new Escalade doesn't look good.  But as I said before, GM design the past 4-5 years is really in a rut.

You do get that its always about bumps in horsepower right? If it happens to way less and the current engine has been updated to make better use of that horsepower, then it is still a solid gain and a tactic that is utilized by all makes including Benz.

 

And again, you talk about looking good or not looking good while not saying a word about the ugliness of your favorite brand (again, looks at the new GLA and holds back vomit).

You only look at the HP and torque ratings?

What about the efficiency numbers?  Dont those count?

I do not know as I havent researched that, but if you are gonna blow your stack bitchin', at least get ALL the numbers so you could REALLY compare and contrast...and when I mean ALL the numbers, I REALLY mean ALL the numbers...

The engine is NOT a completely new design. Like the C8's LT2 engine as compared to the C7's LT1's engine...

Im not talking about the redesigning certain components for the LT2 to be used in a mide-engined configuration, I do mean the small changes to the cylinder heads and valve trains to improve combustion efficiency and stuff...

This new engine under the hood of these new big Utes, If Im correct, use the new LT2 architecture...but they are TUNED to produce the same HP and torque numbers as the previous models...but Im willing to bet that this new engine is MORE efficient in all the efficient ways that are deemed to be...efficient...

C'mon, bro...you are NOT THAT obtuse....

This is just subjective bullshyte.

You are entitled to your opinion, and I WILL agree with you on the last 4-5 years part that GM is bombing in their looks department...

BUT...the Escalade is still under wraps...picture is fuzzy and most of the details of the front end are covered up...

While if the Escalade really does ending up being a scaled up XT6 in the front, Ill agree with you that the Escalade will be dud in the looks department,  but we BOTH cant come to THAT conclusion UNTIL we get the reveal...

So...

Well I hope they found some fuel economy improvements in that 5.3 V8 because there are other vehicles of similar size that get 25% better fuel economy.

That is why I said at first look, and I want to see the full thing in reality.

As far as GM styling, the 6th gen Camaro was a bust, they reworked it a year or 2 later and still doesn't look good.  Blazer looks like the Camaro that was a bust.  The Malibu has been pretty forgettable the past 5 years, the Silverado doesn't look good, that new Tahoe/Suburban don't look good.  I could argue ATS/CTS look better than CT4/CT5, but they are pretty close.  GMC styling has been pretty good, not much wrong there, but Chevy/Cadillacs all look very similar to each other and they aren't on a good track.

Name the vehicles and engines as compared to where the 5.3 liter V8 resides in hierarchy in trim levels and PROVE  this statement to me with links...

But...remember that the 5.3 liter V8 is a very reliable and durable engine and its quite hard to quantify fuel efficiency numbers vis-a-vis endurance and reliability...especially with the possible engine choices in vehicles you are maybe gonna be trying to prove something to me...about...just remember to keep your facts...factual...and real...and no BSing me...

I said dont BS me...

I said the 5.3 liter V8 is reliable and durable...

The Land Cruiser engine is probably the one that rivals the 5.3 liter V8 in reliabilty...the others not so much...and to boot, you left it as to wonder what engines you are talking about...

In other words...I said to tell me what engine choices and trim levels in hierarchy meaning price tags.......and what HP and torque levels each engine you are gonna hit me with...and lastly...REAL WORLD fuel efficient  numbers...

You just got random numbers going on...

There is a reason why GM is still using the venerable 5.3 liter V8.  Money is a reason. But if it aint broke, and it meets and beats the competition in certain areas, and as a middle engine offering...then no need to fix it...in other words, no need to waste money on engineering and testing a new mid level engine when the one you got is just as good, if not better in some areas than your competition, then no need to change anything...

Its a middle engine choice.... 

It doesnt have to be a better than the rest base engine for entry level stuff nor does it have the pressure to be the top dog engine in being the best of the best as the top dog engine....

Middle of the pack is just that...middle of the pack...and the 5.3 liter V8 is as good, if not BETTER than what the competition offers...which is good enough for the 5.3 liter V8 where it stands in trim level on the Chevy big utes...

And that Tahoe outsells all of its competitors while the Escalade outsells all of its competitors. Maybe GM knows something you don’t?

GLS last month sold at a higher rate than Escalade has in 59 of the past 60 months.   Only 1 month, but my guess is 2020 sees GLS as the top seller, X7 2nd, Escalade 3rd and Navigator 4th.

True to the Tahoe though (loads of fleet sales due to government and police packages) but they do outsell the Expedition.  I feel like Ford dropped the ball for a lot of years on the Expedition and this new one is a competitor but for 10 years it was substandard.  The Japanese full size SUVs are basically pre-2009 recession designs, those things are ancient and they should just kill them off if they aren't going to come up with a 100% new product.

The X7 has a stated 335 hp/332 lb-ft of torque but they always under rate, and the X7 40i is a full half second faster 0-60 than a 420 hp Escalade or a 450 hp Navigator (both do it in 5.9 seconds)  No way that engine makes 335 hp and moves a 5,350 lb vehicle that fast. 

GLS450 has 362 hp/369 lb-ft plus a 21 hp, 184 lb-ft electric motor.  0-60 in 5.5 seconds again faster than GM's 6.2 V8 while beating the 5.3 in fuel economy. 

Expedition has 400 hp/480 lb-ft, 0-60 in 5.7 seconds.  Still faster than the 6.2 Tahoe, but better fuel economy than the 5.3.

Car and Driver's real world highway fuel economy for GLS was 24 mpg while 28 mpg for the X7 and 20 mpg for the Expedition.

Goal post moving doesn’t change the fact that the Escalade has routinely outsold the GLS. Your future guessing will not change that fact with these new models coming out, they will continue to sell well and routinely outpace the competition. 
 

And you have a lot of nerve holding fleet sales against GM while Mercedes whores out as many E Class taxis as they can produce and the sheer number of fleet sales of the S Class is equally staggering. When Benz does it, it’s good. When GM does it, it’s bad. 
 

Just more of that fanboy “logic” I guess.

Comparing the Tahoe's 2020 numbers is irrelevant. The new 5.3 and 6.2 have new cylinder deactivation tech that allows the engine to run on as little as 2 cylinders and start/stop. The numbers will change.

Right so 20/25 is the leader in the clubhouse for full size SUV gas engines.  Which is why I said GM should aim for a 20% bump from current Tahoe.

Uh oh, my bro may have found a replacement for his 2017 Tahoe (with 80k + miles on it already) just might have a Duramax 2021 Tahoe in the family.

      At an event is Seoul, South Korea yesterday, Genesis finally unveiled their new GV80 luxury SUV.  The overall look of the GV80 has been leaking out on the internet for months, but we finally get the full official release now.
      The interior and exterior of the GV80 is designed with a common thread to give a familial look with the G70, G80, and G90.  The GV80 introduces a new quad headlamp design that will eventually filter out to the other vehicles in the Genesis lineup. The crest grille first seen on the G90 is here too. The interior of the GV80 focuses on the "beauty of white space". The designed accentuated the width and space of the of the interior with wide horizontal lines and thin air vents.  In the center is a 14.5-inch split screen infotainment display. Genesis intentionally limited the number of hard buttons and switches for aesthetic reasons. The GV80 comes in either 5-seat or 7-seat models. On up-level models, soft materials cover every surface from the inside of door handles to quilted knee pads that line the lower sides of the console.  The transmission selector is a dial in the center console. The integrated controller can be operated by an onscreen keyboard or by handwritten letters. 
      Trips in the GV80 are designed to be stress-free. It gets equipped with a Road Active Noise Cancellation technology to reduce road noise. The system is one of the advanced and fast responding systems in the world. The electronically controlled suspension with road preview helps maintain a smooth ride by recognizing road imperfections ahead via a front camera.
      The GV80 is based on a unique new rear-wheel drive platform, while all-wheel drive is available.  In South Korea is till be equipped with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine while the U.S. will get a choice between two unspecified turbocharged engines. All-wheel drive models in the U.S. will be equipped with an electronic rear limited slip differential.
      There is a host of safety and driving assistance technologies in the GV80 including Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Highway Driving Assist II, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot collision Avoidance Assist, Rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, and driver attention alert warning. In the event of a collision, there are 10 airbags, including a center mounted airbag between the front occupants. 
      The 2021 Genesis GV80 will go on sale in North America later this year.

      At an event in Vail, Colorado today, GMC took the wraps off the 2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.  As before, the top of the Yukon lineup will be the Denali trim, but joining the Denali for the first time is the brand's new AT4 trim which is a more off-road ready version.
      The Yukon gets an all-new interior while the Denali gets its own exclusive version. The Denali instrument panel is completely new and there are also unique seats  and four color themes.  Real wood trims with a natural look and texture join with a Denali only leather, hand-stitched interior.  For the driver, there is a 15-inch diagonal multicolor heads-up display.  On the Denali, AT4, and SLT trims, there is an available power sliding center console that allow the console to slide back up to 10 inches offering a large storage area. 
      Joining the lineup is the AT4 version. All GMC nameplates except the Savanna will be getting an AT4 version by the end of this year.  The Yukon AT4 gets a unique front fascia, and body color or dark accents around the outside, and a pair of red recovery hooks on the front.  The AT4 can be ordered with a four-corner air ride adaptive suspension that can raise the vehicle an additional 2-inches. The air ride system also lowers the vehicle 0.75 of an inch when at speed and can lower the vehicle up to two inches for easier ingress and egress. 
      Also included in the Yukon AT4 are at two-speed transfer case, 20-inch wheels, traction select system with off-road mode, hill descent control, skid plats, AT4-exclusive leather appointed seats, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, and heated outboard second row seats. 
      The 4th generation of GM's magnetic ride control is available in certain trims. Also available is an electronic limited slip differential. When in 4WD low, the eLSD operates at full lock to prevent wheelslip. 
      The Yukon will offer three engine choices. An all-new version of the 6.2-liter V8 that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque is a buy-up option. Standard is the venerable 5.3-liter, updated with new stop/start technology and dynamic fuel management which can allow the vehicle to run on as few a two cylinders.  Additionally, a 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel joins the Yukon for the first time.  No matter which engine is selected, the transmission is a 10-speed automatic activated through GMC's new Electronic Precision Shift push-button selector. 
      Like the recently revealed 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, the Yukon gains 4.9-inches in wheelbase and that leads to a big increase in interior room.

      Like the recently revealed 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, the Yukon gains 4.9-inches in wheelbase and that leads to a big increase in interior room.
