Sorry I didnt explain too well. If you look up the '14 1500 mats on the site. Its the exact same mat. I put a set in my truck today and it was a perfect fit. I ended up getting the husky x-act contour one instead because they match the interior color better and they arent as stiff.

They are already available - part# #44542-1-2. I had mine two weeks before the truck was delivered.

What color interior do you have? I have the cocoa dune and the floor carpeting is essentially a chocolate brown color. I would prefer to have a close match to that or the seats which are more of a taupe (grayish/tan).

I really like the Weather Tech as far as design and fit go. I really like the rear mat that covers the entire floor. They only offer a few colors in black, gray, and tan. The tan appears to be way off and I don't want it too look too busy with colors.

Personally, I would really like to have a set made of cloth. We don't see too much wet weather here and the Catch All I had before handled the wet and mud well and cleaned up like new. I see that Lund is now making the Catch All and has a new version as well, but it doesn't even look like they have one for the 2014 1/2 tons. I will inquire with them and see where it stands. I figure I have about two months before the rain starts hitting hard around here.

My other option is to get a set of Lloyds mats. I have never owned them, but they get great reviews. They seem to have the most color selections, broad coverage, and you can customize them if you want. I think I am going to get a set for the Tahoe and see what they look like in terms of matching the seats, appears to be very close. Check them out here.

Thanks for the information. Do you know if they have ever offered them in cloth?

As far as I know, they haven't. I've only seen the plastic variety, but you could always do carpet over top of them. Here in the salt belt, the plastic work great.

I ordered a complete set of the Ultimat floor coverings for the Tahoe from AutoAnything for about $200. They have a money back guarantee, so if they don't look right or fit good I am not risking much. They get great reviews and this is a pretty high end material. The Ultimat offered the best color selection and I was able to match it up pretty good to the cocoa dune interior of the Tahoe. The Tahoe flooring is more of the taupe color like the seats and not the chocolate brown that my Silverado has, so I wanted to match it. I like the inside of the Tahoe in cocoa dune better than my Silverado, which is a little too much brown.

They don't have them listed for the 2015 Silverado, but do for the 2014. I will see how they look for the Tahoe and make a determination.

I still like the Catch All best cause they are carpeted and have a ridge around the edges to keep debris in place.

I put a set of black weather techs in mine then threw the stock brown rubber mats on top of those...not exactly the greatest look but certainly saves the carpet..

AXE, do you have any interior pics?? How do the seats Feel ? Plush or stiff? My wife has a 2014 Impala LTZ and the new leather seats are to stiff for my liking.. I was thinking they were similar in the new trucks. I also didnt think the cooled/heated seats have air blowing everywhere it should be ( kinda of only blows air down the very middle and not out to the sides) . Your truck looks sweet and the Tahoe is SICK !!! : )

If you PM me your mobile number, I can send you some detailed interior pics.

I personally think the seats are pretty comfortable and have a better shape than the 2007-2014. One of the reasons I held out buying a new truck so long, was I didn't like the quality of interiors materials and seating on 2007-2014 (wife had a 2007 Tahoe). The 2015 interior is entirely different and the materials and craftsmanship seem to be light years ahead (only time will tell).

I believe that the air in the seats is coming out pretty consistently across the surfaces of the seats. The seats have a lot of adjustability and the leather is comfortable. It really makes a nice ride, I did 12 hours straight driving it home from Denver with just a few short stops and never once got tired of sitting.

If I was you, I would just go check one out at the dealer. It will be the best way for you to determine if you think they are better.

By the way, even though they are basically the same, the Tahoe interior is slightly better and more comfortable in my opinion. The layout of the dash is better and it melds nicer with the center console. The ergonomics are better with the seat to console to dash relationship. Also the taupe carpeting looks better than the brown in the trucks. Not anything to complain about or that you will even notice, unless you drive both. That Tahoe rides and handles so nice it is exceptional and the power in the motor is great.

Here she is after the 6" Cognito lift rolling on RBP Fury wheels wrapped in 295/65/20 Toyo MT rubber.

I like how it turned out and the ride quality is excellent. I'll post more details and photos in the lift section soon.
