In response to surprisingly heavy early demand for the new Chevrolet Tahoe, General Motors is calling on its suppliers for parts earlier-than-expected, in hopes of moving production schedules ahead for the company’s other GMT-900 platform SUVs.

Sales for the Tahoe have been up nearly 50-percent through February (compared to 2005). Despite hand-wringing about the state of the economy and heightened gas prices, GM cleared more than 28,500 units since its January launch.

Production of the larger Chevrolet Suburban will begin in Silao, next week, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL assembly in Arlington, Texas is already running ahead of schedule.
