    How can you radically improve an almost perfect design? What can we expect in the GMT 1000?
    I absolutely love this current body style and i don't see how it could be improved upon as it is elegance in motion to me.

    Maybe some minor adjustments on the body style but need some improvement on more HP

    I foresee a new gen motor with more hp/tq, a lighter overall vehicle with new or more extensive use of present composite materials, more standard safety and user interaction options. Maybe one day cars will start coming with light-sensitive window film; gets darker in bright sun and lighter as it gets darker outside, such as nightime or bad weather.

    Those are some good ideas,the problem with composite materials is they are expensive to fix, so I don't know how that would work.

    i bet it will have alot more features, maybe some from the cadillac and even bmw and stuff


    heated steering wheel
    heated/cooled front and rear seats
    xm live traffic through the nav - like cts
    the cruise control that slows down for you
    front and rear parking sensors
    6.2 flexfuel standard with option for bigger engines
    the new bmw feature where you have thermal vision through the nav screen

    how about we go back to the 60's and get the sentinal that turns brights off automaticly when it sees other cars!!

    if the new tahoe had all that, my camero fund would go to a suburban ltz or z71 fund. but they came out with the new tahoe and waited 4 months on the suburban for some reason, probably to get a taste of what the market thought of them.

    I'd settle for more space behind the third row (without having to resort to the 'burbans) and fold flat third row seats.

    Yeah even 6 more inches would be good.

    It's definitely doable since the Outlook/Acadia/Enclave have sizable room aft the 3rd rows.

    there ok, we have an acadia and an enclave, but the second and third row leg room suffers, plus the seats are A TON smaller and not as comfortable. IMO but you got to sacrafice someware. right? i will put a pic with the third row up if ya want to see how little room behind the third row there really is.

    Second and third row seats MUST fold into the floor COMPLETELY (including second row bench)!!! Gimme better use of the space that's in the body/frame so I can forego seat removal completely. If they can't do the second row, at least gimme the deep well for the third row to fold down into... THAT would be more than handy.

    They should add standard Bi-Xenon Light and Active Curve Illumination for 4WD for off road, tire pressure sensor, Keyless go, night view assistance :D...

    tahoes have had tire pressure sensors since 03, i have it on my 06.

    whats curve illumination

    keyless go

    but bi-xenon OEM would be awsome, the have it on the cadi, why not the tahoes

    and the night vision like on the hummers would be cool too.

    Active Curve illumination is when you drive on the roads and make turns the headlights turn to the left or right depending on the direction you are going... BMW and Mercedes Benz have those features...

    o, ok my dad buick enclave has that, its a neat feature, but they call it articulating xenon head lamps, thats where i got confused. LOL

    basicly they need to put all the new stuff they put in the enclave and acadia on the new tahoe, like the head up display, and hid lights , and fold flat third rows.

    I thought Preston Tucker is the one who got the credit for that?
