Default Should GM bring back a 2dr model Tahoe?

I know the new Tahoes are pretty much perfect for a "all new" model - however - are there any of you that think they need to bring back the 2door model as well that they stopped making back in 1999?

I would like to see some votes on the matter as, I myself would go buy one this instant if they would bring the 2dr version back.

Hell yes! It would look great on the new body style. I remember they had prototypes of a GMT800 2-door Tahoe and they had a K5 concept for it.

I think its a shame, as the 2Door Tahoe holds such a high resale value now that most banks will not even loan the amount they typically sell for now. They are still selling for top dollar here in the south.

I have a bud who has made a specialized business by just selling/flipping 2Door Tahoe(s) years 1996-1999.

I know they sell a bazillion Tahoe(s) already but they could sell a bazillionX2 if they made a 2 door version again. Just my thoughts.

I think 2 door is not as practical and may not sell that well.

Oh its definetly not as practical as the 4dr with a family. But what about making it as an option like the 2dr jeep cherokee or the 2dr ford explorer?

Even if it is a limited edition model people will buy it. I know some people said that if a 2door Tahoe came out they would buy it right away. Seeing that GM makes profits off of the GMT900s it could be a good idea. If a 2door Tahoe would be made I would like to see it be off-road capable.

I just sold my 98 2 door Tahoe that I bought new.. I loved it. I would have people stop me in traffic asking if I would sell it. When I bought my 07 The Dealer asked if I was going to trade mine in, I said no. I would sell it out right. His first comment was you will get more then book for it, people are always looking for a good 2 door. I sold it in two weeks for more then NADA book Top condition. I agree a new version not going to sell as many as the 4 door but they have a market for it if they build it. For me now that I have the 4 door I can't go back to a 2 door. Just to nice not having to move the seat up to let people in. Plus the new model 4 door with 20" wheels looks like something I would drive. It has a youth look to it The old 98 in a 4 door had more of what my Grandfather would drive look.
