Default 2007 Tahoe spied at car wash

Don't know if you guys have seen these yet or not. Guy captured the pics at a car wash...looks to be an LS/stripper model.

Well keep in mind that's a stripped down model. I would assume the loaded ones wouldn't look so plain. Overall I am impressed with it, although if you squint it sorta looks like a big Explorer.

That is one lame looking truck. The Equinox looks contemporary and more unique. Why step so far backwards GM?

It pains me to think that Zeta in North America was all but canned because GM decided to rush THAT to market. At least it's better looking than the new Yukon.

The front doors looks way too small to me. The way the windshield slops, there isn't much headroom at the top of the door. I'd be hitting my head alot while getting in and out.

Come down to Warren Michigan by the GM tech center. They are all over the place with no camo.

I don't like it.
It looks like a Toyota 4 Runner raped a Trailblazer and had a really large bastard child. And I agree with Tony, the rear quarter windows edges are too sharp in comparison to the rest of the rounded windows.

Just my $0.02

Theres a full blown pic of one in this month's Motor Trend. Looks like a Toyota product.

Why do they insist on using those ugly shaped wheel opening? Looks stupid from the side especially.

Thats exactly what I meant. The rear door window has much different radiused corners than the rear side window. It just doesn't match up.

The only thing I like is the front end, everything else is BORING.
