    It has often been said that the Chinese market for cars is actually remarkably similar to America's. So it makes sense that GM thinks the likes of the Tahoe and Suburban should be sent there. According to Reuters, the two big Chevys will be joined by the Escalade and the Yukon Denali. That...

    Longer, more spacious, and sporting a newly independent rear suspension, General Motors' 2021 full-size SUV clan is ready to tap pent-up consumer enthusiasm… just as soon as the manufacturer scrubs off the paint-marring insect secretions. It seems the General's big SUVs have run into a...

    The next generation of full-size GM SUV is slated to get its diesel engine in November for the 2021 model year. The report comes from GM Authority, though it cites no specific sources. Indications are that the Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Tahoe diesels will feature the Duramax 3.0-liter inline 6...

    Reports that GM had declined to close its Arlington Assembly plant broke yesterday. Today, reports suggest that a second plant, in Wentzville, Missouri, is seeing COVID cases on the rise. The Detroit Free Press reports that there are 22 confirmed cases in Arlington and 12 in Wentzville. The...

    If you've visited an airport recently, you probably heard on CNN that cases of COVID-19 are on the rise in jurisdictions that largely escaped the earlier wave. Against this backdrop, General Motors came under pressure this week to cease operations at its Arlington, Texas assembly plant. Home to...

    The revamped, full-size Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and their GMC Yukon/Yukon XL twins gain significant length, interior volume, and creature comforts for 2021, but extra MPGs seem to be in short supply. The vehicles are now even larger than their predecessors, are still heavy, and carry...

    Photos of the upcoming replacement for the Cadillac Escalade have leaked on Instagram. Looking pretty much like a Suburban with a Cadillac grille on the outside, it's the interior's thoroughly futuristic dash that will doubtless catch your eye here. The photos were shared by allcarnews, which...

    Tonight, Chevrolet revealed the redesigned 2021 Tahoe and Suburban at an event in Detroit. Among many significant detail changes, the new full-size SUVs feature for the first time an independent rear-suspension that improves ride quality along with increased cargo and passenger room. Sharing an...

    In what is either a deep honor for Chevrolet or another example of the primarily commercial nature of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Suburban is getting a star on the Walk of Fame! To be fair, it could be both because the Suburban might have the longest credits list of anyone in Hollywood...

    A report from the Detroit News says that General Motors is planning to build the electric versions of some of its most popular vehicles at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant, according to industry forecast group LMC Automotive. And that plan looks to include the resurrection of the Hummer...

    When you think of the official vehicle of Texas, the first thing to come to mind is probably the pickup truck. Any pickup truck, though a lifted HD pickup with a big push bumper and maybe a gun rack on the cab and a pair of horns on the hood. Hey, this is word association, not necessarily...

    The Suburban turns 85 in a few months and that's a helpful reminder that it has been around for longer than any other model in automotive history. To celebrate that fact, Chevrolet has released a number of images of the car's history as well as a short video you can see below. "While the...

    As a rule, GM Inside News tends not to trade in renderings. But sometimes a rendering hits so many of our buttons that we can't help but share it. Such is the case with this rendering of a 1977 Cadillac Escalade. Based on the square-body Suburban, this is not too different from what an Escalade...

    Not quite satisfied with the 420 hp yawn that General Motors has managed with the 6.2L V8 available in the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban? You're not the only one, but there's a cure. The folks at Specialty Vehicle Engineering have just the solution to that pondering sport utility. A...

    Looking through the comments on our Buick Regal Sportback review, it's hard not to notice one in particular. That's the one that calls the Regal, a car that is factually bigger inside than some good-sized SUVs, "not big enough to be more than a compact." So what is big enough to be considered...

    The upcoming Kia three-row SUV, which may be called the Telluride, has been photographed completely uncovered and it looks suspiciously like low-rent Suburban. Images of the largest Kia yet surfaced on social media this week, showing the SUV in full from its front, side and rear. It looks as...

    Last year, Chevrolet introduced Rally Sport Truck (RST) variant of the Tahoe. Effectively an appearance package for the body-on-frame SUV, it also opened the door for a performance package containing General Motors' Magnetic Ride Control, a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8, and the 10L80 10-speed...

    It's no secret that the hand-of-god 6.2-liter V8 is popular at TTAC. Those of us who command one with our right foot are outnumbered only by those who wish they had the 420-horsepower engine in their driveway. General Motors sensibly started offering the larger V8 in trims other than ones named...

    In the days when gas was really cheap, back before high-performance SUVs dotted the shopping mall landscape, if you wanted a very fast SUV, you had few options. Sure, you could still get a big block in your Suburban, but that engine only offered 230 wheezing horses. But companies like...

    The Chevy Suburban, thanks to its longstanding nameplate, is a model of durability. Turns out that it's not just the name that lasts, though. The actual vehicle does, too. iSeeCars recently did an analysis of more than 13 million vehicles to figure out which ones stay on the road the longest...
