says its next-generation Chevrolet Tahoe
, GMC Yukon
and Cadillac Escalade
models will offer shoppers improved interior differentiation. Car and Driver
recently caught up with Chris Hilts, GM's
creative manager of interior design, who said that the cabins will all feature unique instrument panels, consoles, center stacks and switchgear moving forward. Apparently GM is now aware that consumers may be bothered by the fact that today's $85,000 Escalade
has effectively the same cabin as a $45,000 Tahoe
. Hilts says SUV buyers want more refinement than their pickup purchasing counterparts – and those same buyers also want their SUVs to have more exterior differentiation between the company's Silverado
pickup lines. Shocking.
That all sounds good to us, but we've heard this song and dance before. GM made big waves about how different the new-for-2013 Silverado and Sierra would look from each other, but judging by what we've seen so far, GM's stylists are painting in shades rather than with the full spectrum.
