Video: Watch Chevrolet’s chief exterior designer overview the 2015 Tahoe

Not too long ago, General Motors released some video content featuring Chevrolet’s exterior designer, Alexandre Henriques, who discussed his point-of-view on the style of the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.

GM’s full-size body-on-frame SUV lineup received a major overhaul for the 2015 model year, including familial cousins from GMC and Cadillac.

But to hear what Henriques had in mind specifically for the Tahoe and Suburban, check out the videos after the jump.

A Designer Tour: 2015 Tahoe, Suburban Exteriors

New looks on Chevrolet SUVs convey greater functionality, technology, refinement

2013-12-02

DETROIT – In a video walk-around, Chevrolet exterior designer Alexandre Henriques discusses how the design of the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe exterior is more refined and precisely sculpted. Not a single exterior sheet metal panel or lighting element is shared with Chevrolet’s full-size pickups.

Henriques describes how the designs of the all-new Tahoe and Suburban forge a new presence for Chevrolet SUVs that’s conveyed with unmistakable brand heritage. The designs also reflect their greater functionality, technology and refinement.

For example, new inlaid doors fit into the body side openings instead of over the top of the body, significantly improving the quietness of the interior cabin and contributing to improved aerodynamics – an attribute that helps the vehicles slip through the air on the highway with less drag for greater efficiency. Lightweight aluminum hood and liftgate panels also result in reduced mass and, therefore, enhanced efficiency.

Projector-beam headlamps flank Chevrolet’s signature dual-port grille – chrome on all models – and sweep into the front fenders. High-intensity discharge headlamps and light-emitting diode daytime running lamps are included on the uplevel LTZ model.
