2017 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 Midnight Edition

My previous Question of the Day focused on your favorite special-edition vehicles, where I so kindly jarred your memory of the excellent Mercury Villager Nautica and GMC Jimmy Diamond Edition. Both of those vehicles showcased enough delightfully distinguishing features that I had to recommend them as prime examples of doing special editions right in the ’90s and early ’00s.

But not all special editions are worthwhile. There are plenty of ill-conceived, silly special editions out there, crapping up the aesthetic of everything in their vicinity. Some look too of the moment when most of those moments certainly don’t deserve memorialization.

Which brings me to my question for you today: What’s the lamest special edition?

I bet most of you forgot my pick long ago, around the time you were throwing away your kids’ broken Nintendo 64. And much like the Nintendo 64, this vehicle was covered in cheap grey plastic, and had goofy early-2000s design touches. Behold!

For sale at a dealer in Minnesota (which is near Canada), this lame special edition is the Chevrolet Avalanche. Now calm down for a second, because I’m not besmirching the GMT805 Avalanche generally.

This is an Avalanche The North Face Edition. In 2002, with the launch of the new Avalanche model, The North Face Edition started stinking up showrooms beginning with this big badge on the C-pillar.

Another notable change was an interior you’d think came straight out of the Jurassic Park gift shop — until you remember Jurassic Park was a Ford-sponsored movie, and took place eight years earlier. This example shows how green leather ages differently according to exposure, as the arm rests are truer to the original sickening green color. There’s also a red The North Face badge sewn into the front seats to remind you of your vehicular purchasing mistake.

I’m not sure why anyone would want an alligator green seat with red teeth mark inserts or seats that were 18 percent made of cloth rather than leather.

Another feature of this edition was a The North Face badge in the lower left of the instrument panel, and some white-backed gauges to make it harder to see when driving on a sunny day.

According to an article from Pickuptrucks.com, The North Face featured branded backpacks strapped to the back of the front seats, which would rub against rear passengers’ legs and also rattle and make other friction-type noises as you drove along. I bet very few examples still retain these backpacks (but maybe the clips are still there, looking ridiculous). There were also two duffel bags for the cargo area, making for a full four-piece set of luggage!

As you entered your special Avalanche, you were also greeted by green door inserts and metallic-silver speaker grilles. Thrilling.

And the price for all this lameness back in 2002 was $37,465 before sunroof and convenience packages. That’s about $51,800 today.

What’s your pick for the lamest special edition?

    the Sinatra edition of the ’80s Chrysler Imperial. Went over like a fart in church, and was a glimpse into how out-of-touch Iacocca would soon be; clinging to padded/landau roofs and stodgy styling well into the ’90s.

      Besides, the Imperial was AWESOME…Darth Vader’s personal luxury car.

      Well the model was a flop entirely, but they sold a decent number of the FS Imperial. And while it was corny, Sinatra put his name on it and appeared in the ads – so I give it a bit of credit.

      Really??? That is utterly ridiculous. That was a great special edition package. It came in Glaciar Blue to match his eyes, and a console full of Sinatra cassettes that you could enjoy immediately upon purchase. And Ol’ Blue Eyes himself was an owner. A disgruntled owner who had problems with his early Mopar electronic fuel injection system it turns out, but still an owner.

        You can just call the god [email protected] thing a Cobra / GT350 / Whatever Ford has used in the past. Why the hard on for Carroll Shelby?

        Ford naming cars after people is like calling a car the Edsel. Why does some old racing rich piece of sh1t get all the fame? Why not name it Henry Ford? FFS might as well name a car after Hitler since ol Henry didn’t want his Cologne plant bombed by the allies.

        The AC Cobra is not a god [email protected] mustang. It’s the same as a Rousch Mustang. Ford nepotism.

        your opinion sucks 4ss.

          If Carroll had no hand in building them, lame. If it’s just a “sticker package”, more lame. “Cobra” by itself is a name Ford nabbed, and fairly independent of Carroll Shelby.

          There may be some loose ties, but don’t associate Carroll or Shelby with “Cobra” (nicknamed “The Terminator” or Termi) supercharged Mustangs of the early ’00s.

    1972 Chevelle Malibu “Heavy Chevy”.

    Anything Mitsubishi Lancer not base models or Evo.

    • 0 avatar

      The Heavy Chevy, Rally Nova and similar early 1970s “tape stripe” packages such as the Pontiac T-37 made sense in their time.

      First, in 1969 the Nixon administration declared the economy to be “overheating”; to slow things down, Congress raised taxes and new ones were enacted. An economic slowdown followed.

      At the same time, insurance companies’ increasingly refused to insure muscle cars, or at least they received a hefty surcharge, even on a spotless record.

      And then there were new smog laws reducing the power of muscle cars. GM’s 1971 models had reduced compression ratios to allow you to run on unleaded gasoline, which would come for 1975.

      So sales of high-profit muscle cars were crashing, along with sales of fancier models in general. It was a “back to basics” period for many car shoppers.

      IIRC the Heavy Chevy and Rally Nova were actually base models with the tape stripes and a few options. And that’s how most of them were sold, on value.

      But if you wanted, the Heavy Chevy could also be ordered with up to the 454 and Rally Nova up to the 396. People who could afford to insure the real thing still bought the fancier SS models of course, but because Heavy Chevy and Rally Nova weren’t SS’s, they were more likely to fly under insurance companies’ radar. Similar with the T-37, there was a GT-37 variant that was more easily insured. Again, these engines were running 8.0:1 or 8.5:1 compression instead of the 10.0:1 or 11.0:1 used in 1970 models that required premium leaded gas. But they were still 396 (actually 402s), 454s and the like.

      These packages, depending on how you ordered them, killed two birds with the same stone.

      And although tape stripe editions existed before, after the 70s they were EVERYWHERE. And 99% were pretty lame.

  • avatar

    I hate to say this. But Porsche has a tendency to bring out special 911 editions, usually commemorating a commemorative edition that was brought out 40 years ago (or so). Like the ducktail RS in Wehrmacht Grün or so. And of course Bugatti with its Veyron. It had such a hard time selling 300 in a decade or so, that all of them ended up being special editions. You could not get a regular one (evidently) if you’d asked for one.

      Soon to be joined by the NISIMO edition Altima, Pathfinder etc with a body kit and ugly wheels. Evidently, they won’t be upgraded performance wise, its purely an aesthetic “upgrade”.

      Now, if they did a proper Maximia NISIMO with a supercharger and a 6mt, that would be awesome.

    Any “Official Pace Car” editions. They were usually the very mildest of badge and wheel jobs. Also why drive around in a car advertising a race that occurred X number of years ago?

    I’ll also nominate the GMC Colorado Avalanche Edition (yes, the same Colorado Avalanche that won like four games this season). In the late ’90s, GMC dealers around here just slapped an Avs badge on the side of Jimmy, made no other changes, and charged an extra couple hundred bucks.

    And because the Avs were YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE in Denver at the time, people bought the things.

          Growing up a neighbor located a “HEAVY HALF” Chevy and gave it a restoration down to the decals on the bed. He’d drive it every day that the weather was nice (and given the amount of rust he had repaired I couldn’t blame him.)

    The worst special editions are the Nissans lamely labelled “Special Edition”. It’s like the marketing department just gave up any hope.

    A close second is any sport edition, particularly minivans, which consist of nothing more than special paint and some plastic cladding.

      “A close second is any sport edition, particularly minivans, which consist of nothing more than special paint and some plastic cladding.”

      Corolla S?

      Were there actually “Limited Edition” early 1990s Sentras? Or did many of those who had one also buy a generic plaque at an auto parts store? Because that’s exactly what it looks like.

      Honda would have SE “Special Edition” Accords now and then, but they usually mean pretty well fully loaded cars, so it was not just like buying a regular LX for example. It was well equipped.

        I had an Apex edition Wrangler. I bought it used and always planned on removing the sticker from the hood but never got around to doing it. I remember getting stopped at a gas station and a guy asking me when made it the Apex edition. He wanted to know all the parts that made it an Apex. I was like, the sticker, that’s all the sticker. Truth be told it also had brown leatherish seats but I replaced them with normal ones.

          As a kid I remember seeing the Sahara and Islander editions all over the place. Wasn’t the only difference between them the color schemes?

            Back in the late 80’s a friend of mine had the Jeep Wrangler Sahara edition. They only came in the one color, olive green and had the mesh protected driving lights. The special green khaki upholstery was quite durable with little rear pouches in back of the seats. A nice special edition.

          • 0 avatar
            cgjeep

            The Islander was a sticker and special color special edition. The Sahara started out as the top of the line model only available in kacki or green with a tan top. The inside had special interior with nicer carpeting and it also had body color gender flares. The Sahara still exists today but isn’t a special edition anymore it is a model like a limited or SE. It is one of the higher end keeps but without all the hardcore off-road stuff of the Rubicon. You can get leather seats as an example and is has more sound deadening. Still has body color gender flares. The Rio Grand was like a Sahara but in 4cyl vs the Sahara’s 6cyl.

      I purchased the ‘original’ Caravan Sport. Had to special order it. Teal colour, white accents, aluminium wheels and captain’s chairs in the 2nd row.

      Was going to get another Caravan anyhow and based on all the rave reviews from “automotive journalists’ paid the extra coin for one. Took a few months to take delivery.

      Well that is the very last time that I trust ‘automotive journalists’. The ride and handling that they claimed was so much better, was not. The tires were a special size that were outrageously priced. When a family member ‘brushed’ a curb I had fits, when I found out the price to replace the special aluminium wheel.

      And to top it off, the infant seat did not fit behind me due to the placement of the captain’s seats in the 2nd row.

      Epic fail. Terrible consumer decision.

          ‘Lou’: 1996 model year. The ‘sport’ version was available only in teal or white.

          The reviews/reports also claimed some sort of enhanced handling (beyond the wider tires) but I could never find any evidence of that.

          Chrysler seems to have had some sort of corporate fixation with the colours white and teal in the 1990s. In 1992 the most expensive Caravan that they offered (and possibly the most expensive non-truck vehicle sold by Chrysler in Canada that year) was the Grand Caravan ES which was also only available only in white or teal.

          Bought one of those new as well. White with the boudoir red interior. Was a quiet and soft ride for the kids but the tranny died twice in under 60,000 kms, the ABS system was twitchy and the interior plastic in the back systematically cracked during the first year.

    Any “Anniversary Edition.”

    On Honda Accords, it’s just a way to create an intermediate trim level without giving in to the rest of the world and allowing standalone options.

    On Corvettes, it’s a way to separate gullible old guys armed with diapers from their money. No, your “Anniversary Edition” Corvette with the standard engine, transmission, and suspension isn’t going to be a super-special collectible that will be worth millions.

    Opel Corsa “Steffi Special”, named after tennis icon Steffi Graf. White, electric folding sunroof, maybe some tennis-themed decals. Inoffensive enough car — but the name … *shudder*

    The ones shown above may be bizarre, but that’s not my definition of “lame.” Courage is a good thing in my opinion, even if the result ends up being more or less off.

        Those were just slip covers (if that’s the term for (normally) aftermarket seat covers that fit over the factory seat surface and can be easily removed). The Corsa Steffi Special I once owned (for a week) didn’t have them anymore. (Other things it lacked were waterproofness, a TÜV sticker, and structural integrity — but the 1.4i with 5MT and the sunroof made it a fun runabout nonetheless.)

    The old man once bought a “Special Edition” GMC Jimmy in 1992ish. I’ve never been able to find out anything about this version, so it must have been a local dealer.

    What made it special? Pinstripes on the red paint, chrome lower exterior door panels (that just trapped moisture, hastening the rust), and a chrome cover for the spare tire, that said – in 90s script – “Special Edition”.

    Same engine, same whorehouse red interior, and nothing else to differentiate it between a standard Jimmy. My dad thought it was the coolest thing ever while I thought it was an abomination.

    Since TTAC appears to deliberately bash GM at every turn, I’ll put my two cents’ worth on here.

    I nominate the mid-70s GMC “Gentleman Jim” pickup truck. GM’s quality in many areas was proudly shown on their trucks. The “Gentleman Jim” decal was ALWAYS applied crooked, as well as every GM/Chevy truck’s optional side spear molding, which was not only crooked, but wavy, too!

      They deliberately point out the same (problems, mistakes, bad cars, etc) for Ford, Honda, etc.

      Its just that GM makes it so easy.

      Look at all the examples from them above. I don’t know of any special edition (offered new) SuperCrew F-150s that had pea green interior inserts.

      Special Editions they did right (GMC Jimmy Diamond) were discussed as well.

  • avatar
    JohnTaurus

    I love finding special additions (sic) for sale!

    I know the anti-truck crowd hates all the special edition pickups, but most come with unique features that are in far better taste than Corey’s Avalanche of Uglyness.

    I don’t know if a Windstar Sport or a Caravan Sport is a special edition, its just a trim that adds some sporty touches here and there by way of wheels, fog lamps, etc. No different than the loaded-out trim, it isn’t considered a special edition either.

    Several examples above resonate with me. I think anything sports-related (including racing, golf and Olympics) is ridiculous. I don’t care much for LL Bean edition or Orvis edition, etc. This is especially true of those examples with just different badges and not much else.

    Eddie Bauer was not a special edition IMO, it was really just a trim line with specific colors and equipment. Even still, its not something I seek out on vehicles there were a lot of, like Expediton or Explorer. I wouldn’t mind an Eddie Bauer (or Sport lol) fully loaded Aerostar, or even an F-150 with a 300 I-6/5MT (I’ve seen that in Eddie Bauer and even Lariat pre-1997 trucks).

    “But if you wanted, the Heavy Chevy could also be ordered with up to the 454 and Rally Nova up to the 396.”

    Not quite, the Heavy Chevy was introduced in 1971 and the 400 Turbo-Jet (402 CI) was the largest available engine though scant few examples appear to exist.

    Same issue with the Rally Nova, another ’71 intro and the last 396 Nova (again, actually a 402 CI) was built in 1970.

    My vote goes to the GM W-body NASCAR models of the early ’00s. Front wheel drive family cars on cost engineered unibodies witb gaudy-to-obnoxious call outs that their standard grade V6 engines and slow shifting automatic transmissions couldn’t back up.

    They invoked about as much of the essence of a real NASCAR stocker as a souvenir coffee cup. They almost made the Volare Road Runner, Aspen R/T and Mustang Cobra II of the 1970s look like serious performance efforts. Terrible and cynical.

    Literally don’t even know what makes a Century 2000 different aside from the badge.
