Unlike the Tahoes and Yukons of yesteryear, the new Chevy and GMC full-size SUVs share even less with the Silverado and Sierra than ever, with Chevy going so far as to say that "no exterior sheet metal panel or lighting element is shared with Chevrolet's full-size pickups." We'd certainly say that's the case. Though the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban have an in-your-face split chrome grille like the Silverado (standard on all models), the latest take on Chevy's stacked headlight treatment couldn't be any more different, with an almost Ford Explorer/Range Rover-like look to it. Projector-beam headlights come standard on the new Tahoe and Suburban, with HIDs with LED running lights standard on the loaded Tahoe and Suburban LTZ. The previous-generation Tahoe and Suburban's roundish jelly bean-like profile is gone, in its place is handsome, slab-sided, and chiseled sheet metal, lending the Chevys a truck-ish quality.
