    - Power dissapearing 3rd row seat
    - Redesigned, modern dash
    - Redesigned rear to better differentiate from a Suburban/Tahoe
    - Options for factory 20" wheels
    - More HP

    for the EXT:

    - power locks control tailgate and side compartments.
    - 2 inch longer cabin (so i don't have to move my seat forward to put the rear seats down
    - power rear window
    - better nav unit that has dvd option
    - more options for things like wheels, power, cooled seats, heated cooled cup holders

    For the EXT: I would also like a 12v outlet in the rear bed, lights on BOTH sides of the bed, instead of one, and the other stuff mentioned prior

    bigger fuel tank?? what do you want to drive a tanker truck j/k

    a 12v outlet in the back would be great. i also wouldn't mind have a couple somewhere near the front seats also.

    I had 54 gallon tanks installed in 5 of my 6 Suburbans, that way I was sure I could get to my home in upstate NY in the snow on one tank full of fuel.

    wow. that's a lot of gas.

    it's 500 miles for me to myrtle beach tomorrow and if i didn't have to go to work first, i'd almost be able to make it on one tank. it's going to be an adjustment for me. usually when i'm traveling and it gets to around a 1/4 tank i start to think about gas. but with this, 1/4 still gives me over 100 miles.

    getting back to the topic, my first three suggestions/wants are the only things that don't make me feel like i have a luxury truck. change those it'd be almost perfect. some other things could be tweaked, but other than that, i'd be thrilled.

    Yes, they look like pretty normal aluminum travel mugs, but there are 2 metal contacts in the cup holders themselves that the travel mugs need to touch.

    I was just in a Platinum ESV last night and,from what I understand, the heat/coll feature will not function unless your using the provided mugs.

    Does anyone know if the 2006's are gonna have a new body style? They really need HID fog lights and a better sound system.

    does it really need a better sound system?? most people either like what they have or will replace it anyway. i'd almost rather have them drop the price by about a thousand and put a crappy one in so i can do it myself.

    I forgot, I would really like the keyless start like in the XLR, and the cruise control that adjusts itself when another car moving slower comes in front.
