the new Ford Suburban

What is GM thinking? It looks like a Ford.

It will take a little getting used to but I think it looks pretty good, unlike the new Silverados. The days of me being able to afford one though, are long gone.

Re: the new Ford Suburban

If I were in the market for a vehicle like that and I was willing to part with the money it will take to drive one home I would consider it for sure. I don't find any of the styling cues offensive or necessarily "Ford" inspired.

I hope I can afford my next one.

Mmmm no not really. I don't see much difference other than the grille and taillights. Also... what's so wrong about "looking like a Ford"?

Re: the new Ford Suburban

I agree, the new front ends look a lot like Ford, which has cured my desire of wanting to buy a new Chevy for a while.

Ford hasn't built a good looking truck since 1979.

Re: the new Ford Suburban

So what? Ford has a work van that can't be told from a Nissan, unless you look at the name on the emblem.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

Yeah, I wonder how the IRS and the diesel option will effect the towing capacity.

Re: the new Ford Suburban

I need a truck.. but with the price of these new ones, I will probably buy some old thing that doesn't get very good mileage. It won't be a DD though, have my little corolla for that.

Re: the new Ford Suburban

The big 3 have.destroyed the pick up truck. The prices are in the stratosphere, and they are ultra luxurious. Not made for hauling cargo which is their intended purpose. A pick up with an 8 ft bed has to be special ordered. The cabs are larger than the cargo box. The manual transmission is non existant.
Every other house in my development has a pickup truck and they are seldom if ever used to haul cargo.
Guess it's hard to look cool driving a mini van which is much better suited for the use that most pick up owners are using their vehicles.

Re: the new Ford Suburban

The 2021 model looks way better than the current one. It should ride a lot better, now that it will have independent rear suspension.

"blm", I understand what you're saying but that's what is in demand so that's what the factories are making!
Personally, I do like the "ultra luxurious" new trucks and you can definitely can haul cargo with them. As for 8ft. beds, they're more popular for commercial use now and people prefer losing a foot of the truck's bed and have four doors, extra seating, etc Like it or not, that's where the market (demand) is today.

Re: the new Ford Suburban

Today's trucks out-tow, out-haul, and out-perform the old ones in every way.

My only complaints are the price, and that they've gotten so tall I can't reach anything in the box without climbing inside to get it... and since 2019 models came out, the Chevy and GMC are both as ugly as the Fords now.

It's a sad day when the Ram is the best looking truck on the market.

Hopefully they get a facelift in 2-3 years.
