LOL. The Duramax is absolutely awesome, as is the Allison transmission.

It's the clunky truck that it goes in that I could do without!

unibody is what they use on cars, so their really getting rid of all the toughness.

we have an acadia/enclave, and i have owned and own a gmt 800 and 900. the 900 and even 800 are by far the smoothest vehicle of them all.

900 is more smooth than 800 but 800 is still smoother than the lambda's which is a unibody frame, also the acadia while still being a gmc, flexes more, and bumps are more harsh, as well as it just does not feel as solid over all.

so putting a unibody on a tahoe is really just makeing things worse. why fix what aint broke.

i mean the gmt 900 is one of the most solid, smoothes, quietest, truck i have ever ridden in, infact except for super luxo cars that i cant afford, its the smoothest vehicle ever IMO. bumps are like nothing, steering is solid, body never flexes, the gmt 900s are the best thing ever, why didnt i buy one before the 06.

They are cars pretending to be trucks.

I've been telling myself that I will keep this truck for a long time, if I can keep it in good shape, because it's already perfectly what I want. We all know how that goes after time, but I swear if they go unibody on this thing this will be the last Tahoe I buy and this will NEVER be sold. Should something bad happen to it (knock on wood) then I will replace it with one just like it. I'm not kidding, I'll keep it and get a 2500 pickup next. Speaking of which, what would this mean for the 2500 Suburban and XL???

They would have to either keep the 2500 XL/Suburban or drop it, because I doubt that 3/4 ton and unibody are ever gonna go well together.

Ford and Chrysler are looking at doing the same thing (Unibodied SUV's). I drove a full size gas or diesel pickup for nearly 20 years before switching to to the Tahoe, and it's really working for me. But if it goes unibody, I'll go back to a 2500 pickup. I drove an '08 Duramax/Silverado recently, and the thing almost felt like a big car. It made my erstwhile '02 Dodge Cummins feel like riding on a buckboard.
