2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
The 2015 Tahoe is engineered to deliver a quieter, more-controlled ride and improved steering and braking feel. It all starts on a stronger, fully boxed, perimeter frame that supports payload and trailering capability, which body-frame-integral crossovers and SUVs can’t match.
New functionality and technology features on the new Tahoe abound. These include: Fold-flat second- and third-row seats that enhance cargo convenience, including an available power-folding feature; approximately 2 inches greater legroom for second-row passengers, along with easier entry/exit; available 8-inch color touchscreen radio with next-generation MyLink connectivity; up to six USB ports and six power outlets, including a 110-volt three-prong outlet; conversation mirror in the overhead console that provides a panoramic view of the rear seats; and keyless entry and push-button start.
The driving experience is further enhanced with 18-inch wheels that are a half-inch wider, reducing tire flex for improved cornering performance. Twenty- and 22-inch wheels are available. Tahoe’s 5.3L V-8 features state-of-the-art technologies, including direct injection, cylinder deactivation, continuously variable valve timing and an advanced combustion system, designed to make the most of power, torque and efficiency across a broad range of operating conditions. The engine is mated to a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission, featuring TapShift control, Tow/Haul mode and Auto Grade Braking. Base model estimated miles per gallon: 16/23. Estimated starting price: $45,600.
