How many times is this going to need to be said!? The current 'gator BASICALLY DATES BACK TO 2003. You can tell because the side panels are exactly the same, in 2007 and 2015 they just changed the face and the tailgate. In 2007, they did change the interior a bit, but kept the same basic "twin cowl" design, and in 2015 they changed the interior minimally and the dash still has the same basic shape.(And obviously throughout the years they changed some tech specs and engine stuff etc). But don't take my word for it, just look up the interior and exterior pics of a 2003, 2007, and 2015 and you'll see what I'm talking about. However, I do think it was good of them to put in the ecoboost in the 2015, though, so thats good. I had heard that the old v8 was a bit sluggish.
It will be interesting to see how they advertise this beleaguered beast, which I say somewhat endearingly.
PS: If you guys are going to say this truck doesn't look outdated, I better not hear a word from you about how the new volvo xc90 looks "plain" or "slab-sided"!
No double standard!
PPS(or is it PSS?): I PERSONALLY think the navi still looks okay, but I also understand that compared to its competition and most peoples point of view it seems outdated. Its fine if one personally likes it, but you're just being stupid if you think that in the real world people are actually going to favor it over the escalade. I wont deny that the gator has advantages in cargo and 3rd row seating, but lets face it, the type of people who buy these things, vain as they are, will favor gaudy looks over practicality.
