I looked at the new Suburban at the Buffalo auto show on Saturday.

The new styling (the windows don't seem as tall) makes it look a lot longer than my 2002. The interior is a very nice and there are a lot of new features.

The only negative was the "fold-flat seats". They couldn't get the rear seat to fold completely flat into the floor, so they raised the floor by adding a shallow storage compartment on top of the floor behind the 3rd seat. When you open the rear hatch, there is about a 4" high step due to the storage compartment. In other words, so they can claim "fold-flat" seats you lose about 4" of height in the cargo area.

Still no word on a 3/4 ton model, and no engine to replace my 8.1L for towing. Hopefully the will offer a diesel eventually, maybe the "baby Duramax" 4.5L they were going to build at the Tonawanda plant before the bankruptcy.
