Best idea ever. Some one with some skills should make it happen.

What a let down for me in the looks department. I've never bought chevys for looks anyhow. Hopefully the goodies under the skin make up for the looks.

It's only been out 4 years, and only 3 years in the f150s. There were some changes made to the 2103 ecoboosts to cure the shudder issue.

GM's lack of a redesign for so long, and then to tout this as a major redesign, is the biggest joke of the last decade.

If that were the case why not extend it to saving GMC as a whole? (EDIT: My 'Decade' quip meant the biggest design/product decision between 2000-2010.. and if that were the case THE BIGGEST FOULUP WOULD BE KILLING THE F-BODY IN '02!!!?!?1 )

My whole argument was that they should have killed GMC, dumped the whole house into Chevrolet and gone worldwide with the Chevrolet Brand as a truck brand to compete with Toyota..

Tall order yes, but think about what would be possible if Chevrolet launched an uptrim level of the Traverse, Equinox, and Silverado to supplant the Denali and compete with the King Ranch and Big Horn? The need for GMC would be nonexistant at that point.

Other side of the coin would be to kill the Silverado, Nox, and Traverse and leave all trucks to GMC and launch it as a global brand.

Not sure if sarcasm or serious..

But on topic: Sales are the true vindicator of whether or not GMC and Chevrolet can coexist in the long run. They did it with Buick and Cadillac..

Though there is a ways to go still before the XTS can compete with cars like the 7 series and high end executive Mercedes.

But then Buick or Olds, or Pontiac dealers would have had to sell Chevys. GMC is your "across the board" truck so that Caddy and Buick dealers could sell trucks too without having to be a Chevy dealer. At least this was what I was told long ago.

Maybe now with lesser amounts of brands it may not matter, but back then it certainly made a difference.

But if you drop GMC, then get the ugly off the Silverado and make it LOOK like a GMC, and I'd buy it. Either truck would be pretty much functionally the same, but the GMC looks better IMO.

Serious.

Cadillac and Buick are different products. One is supposed to be GM's answer to the Germans and the other GM's answer to the Japanese. Sierra and Silverado are not different products (even though GM will tell you otherwise).

The XTS is a wonderful car but it is indeed a long way off from competing with the 7-series and S-class cars. Having said that, it's a really good deal compared to German cars. I know, I know.....
