GM dropping full-size hybrid SUVs for 2014
The current GM full-size SUV lineup will return for 2014 with minimal changes (detailed inside).
If you're looking to buy a full-size hybrid SUV, you'd better get a move on. General Motors has confirmed that it won't be offering hybrid versions of its Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade for what's expected to be an abbreviated 2014 model year.
Despite persistent rumors indicating otherwise, GM's next-generation full-size SUVs won't show up until the 2015 model year.
That means that the current versions of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL and Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, which first hit the road in 2006 as 2007 model year SUVs, will soldier on as 2014s before the redesign launches.
The 2014 models are mostly unchanged. Here are all the details:
Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban
The highest-volume full-size SUVs add power adjustable pedals, remote start and a backup camera integrated into the rearview mirror on LS and LT models. All Tahoes and Suburbans will be offered in a new Concord Metallic paint scheme.
GMC Yukon and Yukon XL
Like their Chevrolet brethren, Yukon SLE and SLT models gain as standard power adjustable pedals, remote start and a backup camera integrated into the rearview mirror. A new Deep Indigo Metallic shade will also be available.
Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV
The only change to note for the most luxurious versions of the full-size GM SUV is the addition of a new Midnight Plum Metallic exterior paint color.
