Yeah I’m really enjoying the size. I looked really hard at the suburbans. There are even a couple 2021 suburbans and Yukon xl around here. The one thing that kept me from GM was I wanted an 8 passenger. GMs 8 passenger is near impossible to use if you have kids in car seats. Otherwise I really love the 2021s!!

So what's the difference between the 2? Why are suburbans more difficult?

I’ll post a photo/video later to see the ease of the expedition. It maybe easier to show it.

The GM trio, 2021 and previous model both share this. If you choose 8 passenger, you get a true 60/40 bench style seat. Then to get into the back you have to fold the seat twice. Down and then forward. If you have a car seat or booster it’s impossible without removal.

The expedition uses a 40/20/40 (which is closer to a 35/30/35). All 3 move independent of each other. They slide and recline. To get in the back you can fold like the GM, but they put a better way. Even if a car seat is there, you can push a button. The seat tips forward and then slides a good 12 inches forward. Between the tip and slide it provides about 2 ft of room to get in the back. Easy enough that my littles can do it.

That is a way better design compared to GM's. As usual GM is behind! It amazes me that they are still in business.

I love A LOT about the new suburban. I love a lot about the “old” suburban. It’s just a few areas that with having a big family really matter. I really wanted a z71 with the air ride, but this one little feature is huge with 4 kids and a some in car seats.

Agree. The user-friendliness with a family is important. The main reason we got the suburban to handle the extra stuff with our daughter and her wheelchair. Makes trips easier when it all can fit without playing Tetrus.
