Don’t count out the full-size SUV. Fuel prices continue their historic lows, and American consumers continue their legendary desire for more. We know that we can get lighter, smaller vehicles with better gas mileage — but we still crave thirsty, powerful, heavy big SUVs.
As long as we keep buying them, GM will keep building them. In addition to a wide range of unibody (car-based) crossover vehicles, GM also has a strong lineup of body-on-frame (truck-based) sport utility vehicles (SUVs) — including the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, and GMC Yukon, which are enjoying a sales boom. The Yukon Denali has received a mild makeover to help take advantage of this demand.
