We bought the Tahoe within the first week of the new redesigned 07 model launch, so I suppose we've had it for a little over a year now.

However, I still haven't meshed with the new exterior design, which reminds me of a bus mixed with a bulldozer, and if GM is so focused on improving fuel economy, it baffles me as to why the size of the Tahoe keeps growing, unless they're trying to compensate for the fact that Americans are getting fatter.
The fuel economy is right on par with my new Commander, averaging around 16.5 miles/gallon, yet most of the press seems to gloss over this while scrapping the Commander. The 26 gallon fuel tank must fool everyone.
In any case, at this point I'd take the Commander over the Tahoe anyday, as its better looking, more capable, and more fun to drive.
