Anyways, in GMC's and GM's infinite wisdom, hiring a marketing consultant, paying them more than 1,000 genuine warranty claims............they rename the GMC Suburban..............YUKON XL..............as the GMC version of the Tahoe is Yukon..............and by the way, it took years and $$$$, many $$$$ to change the name of Chevy Blazer to Tahoe and Jimmy to Yukon...................and you wonder why they are broke.

Now go home and bow to your Camaro, and your Vette, as those are the last two gasps out of Chevy GM in years.
I'm not sensing much optimism... Lol

The SS (commodore) is probably gonna be the next big flop from GM honestly only because of the sorry naming of the car. SS is a great moniker, but they should have called it something else, like caprice, impala, chevelle, etc. I'm sure any of those name plates would have made for well known and sought after replacements for simply "SS".
