(WXYZ) - Unveiled in New York City Thursday, is a redesigned line of SUVs from General Motors.
GM is taking a bold new step forward despite its already established SUV family of vehicles. Chevy and GM combined already command 74-percent of the spot utility market, but the company hopes the 2015 re-designs and engine upgrades will continue to pad the bottom line for the brand.
The 2015 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and flag-ship Yukon Denali sport newly re-designed front grilles and head lamps. The GMC line of SUVs features a greater range of advanced technologies with MyLink and fuel economy with an all new EcoTec3 V-8 engine.
GM reports both the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban will deliver more power, more room and a quieter interior. The suburban, in its 80th year of production, is Chevrolet's oldest continuously available nameplate, and for 2015 the model offers interior and exterior upgrades.
"This vehicle is completely redesigned in and out," says Maria Rohrer of Chevy Trucks Marketing. "It appeals to the customer that has a huge amount of towing needs."
Also redesigned is the segment's sales leader, the 2015 Chevy Tahoe. It's more aerodynamic, giving it greater fuel economy, although the EPA estimates are not yet available.
Here's the preliminary specs on the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban as provided by GM:
