No worries, from what I (and others) "see", ain't gonna happen.

My guesses:

-Foot-activated lift gate
-A foot of ground clearance (my first choice)
-UConnect screen is 12"

That's all I have for now.

That's enough, as one of them is correct!

As much as I would like it to have a foot of ground clearance and/or a 12" touchscreen, my guess is that it is the foot-activated lift gate.

A foot of ground clearance at normal ride height
Now that would be good

I actually think Chevy ruined the 2015 Tahoe face....the GMC looks ok but I definitely prefer the 2009?-2014

All our grandmothers won't enjoy the extra foot in clearance. It will be good for some though.

As long as it works with the trailer hitch. The ford escape has it and at least the first year you couldnt have the foot activated lift gate and a trailer hitch.

It will, however, be interesting to see what comes with the 2017 model that includes a complete platform refresh...but it will be awhile before even half-credible rumors start for that one.

I would only expect color options and some added electronic features to come into play over the next two model years, honestly. They are selling like hotcakes as it is (discussion about increasing production by adding another facility) so there is little incentive to make any more mid-course changes at this point.
Hello Jim_in_PA. Thank you for the following up. I am familiar with Milous, and his contribution to the Forum. Again, I was simply drawing attention to several internet articles. As we all know, if its on the internet, it must be true......

Seriously, I agree with you. Jeep's recent mid-life refresh will probably hold up for at least 1-2 additional model years. I suspect 2015 will bring updated technology, additional LEDs exterior lighting, new exterior and perhaps interior color changes. Perhaps, wheel design refresh. That's about it....IMO.

As I stated, my 2011 lease expires this year. So, I will be moving into a 2015 GC Overland/Hemi (my 6th GC). BTW, I test drove a 2014 diesel. Impressive, but honestly, I prefer the Hemi V8. Personal preference.

Re: Changes for 2015?

so if you you really had the new car itch and the gc scratched it, would you wait for the 15 or plunge ahead with the 14.

Re: Changes for 2015?

I'd wait until the order banks open for the 2015s and go get a steal on a 2014. That's assuming you are flexible on what you will buy (colors, options, etc).
