According to <a href="http://autoblog.com/tag/gm/">General Motors</a>, owners "just love off-roading with [its fullsize body-on-frame sport utility vehicles]," namely the <a href="http://autoblog.com/chevrolet/tahoe/">2015 Chevrolet Tahoe</a> and <a href="http://autoblog.com/chevrolet/suburban/">Suburban</a> and <a href="http://autoblog.com/gmc/yukon/">GMC Yukon</a>. If that's the case, it's a bit odd that sales of the previous generation of these models with the Z71 off-road package didn't sell particularly well.



Perhaps, considering this disconnect between owner's thoughts and desires with actual sales, it's not surprising that General Motors is reportedly "considering" an off-road specific model. That means the package would include styling changes and badges along with suspension modifications and larger wheels with appropriately sized fender flares.



There's no indication if the off-road model would be called Z71 or when it may potentially go on sale, assuming it ever goes on sale at all.<p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/24/gm-mulling-off-road-variants-fullsize-suvs/">GM mulling off-road variants of fullsize SUVs</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Tue, 24 Sep 2013 11:31:00 EST.  Please see our <a href="/rss-term-of-use/">terms for use of feeds</a>.</p><h6 style="clear: both; padding: 8px 0 0 0; height: 2px; font-size: 1px; border: 0; margin: 0; padding: 0;"></h6><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/24/gm-mulling-off-road-variants-fullsize-suvs/" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent link to this entry">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/forward/20727387/" title="Send this entry to a friend via email">Email this</a> | <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/24/gm-mulling-off-road-variants-fullsize-suvs/#comments" title="View reader comments on this entry">Comments</a>[/html]
