Now that mass-market SUV sales have been taken over by compact and midsize models, the full-size models can move increasingly upmarket, and according to information from a dealer advanced ordering guide that Automotive News got its hands on, Chevrolet will not be bashful about asking premium prices for the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs.
Automotive News is reporting the starting MSRP for the 2015 Tahoe will be $45,595, including destination, representing a $1000 increase over 2014 models. A Tahoe LTZ 4x4 will start at $62,995 before options. The 2015 Suburban will reportedly start at $48,295, likewise representing a $1000 increase over the outgoing model. A Suburban LTZ 4x4 will reportedly start at $65,595 before options.
Despite the high prices, the resale values on both the Tahoe and Suburban remain strong, as well as current transaction prices, with Suburban prices averaging more than $50,000.
An updated 2015 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator are expected soon, and may debut at the Detroit or Chicago auto shows. The 2014 Ford Expedition starts at $42,630 for a 2WD XLT, the long-wheelbase Expedition EL, Ford's competitor to the Suburban, starts at $45,340. A 2014 Expedition King Ranch 4WD starts at $56, 065 before options.
