WILL POST SOME PICS OVER THE WEEKEND
Just rolled over 1,000 miles in my 2015 Suburban LTZ 4x4. A couple of observations (I have owed 12 new Suburbans in the past 16 years so have a good point of perspective):
1) Ride is fantastic - unbelievably quiet and in spite of the mass of the vehicle it is taunt. My previous (2013) would wallow.
2) Interior is light years ahead of previous model - in function, design and materials. You are sitting IN these seats where before you were sitting ON the seats.
3) Still trying to figure out all the electronics...helps to have a teenager in the house to help. Some of the functions can be distracting while driving.
4) First road trip (approx. 300 miles with cruise set at 75) yielded an impressive 18.9 MPG (in 2 wheel drive mode). Around town in the 11 MPG range.
5) Mine is the new mahogany colored interior - you will never go back to black with the richness of this interior!
6) I live in Texas so a new Suburban is a big deal - have had lots of questions and comments on it. There was one guy who chased me down in the Lowe's parking lot to set it.
7) The design makes the vehicle look longer than it is...as does the massive rear doors... almost a limo look.
8) The power fold flat seats are nice...but they do take up a bunch of functional cargo space compared to the previous model. GM may say no loss...but in the real world of road trips there is.
9) Complaints....1) the click click of the turn signal being on is very LOUD and cheap sounding. 2) The rear floor now slopes down towards the tailgate so you have to be careful when opening the hatch as items will slide back again it and can fall out when you open the hatch. 3) The center console is huge....volleyball sized...but unusable for much unless you buy the genuine $ 50 GM accessory tray that fits neatly in and gives you a much needed second level within reach. For $ 71k large one MRSP...I would think GM could include it.
