A Rival Unmatched – Tahoe 2015

The truck based capability of a true SUV for towing, hauling and carrying cargo remains an unmatched and incomparable choice for many, even though the popularity in the full sized SUVs buyers move to a larger crossovers.  For all those who think abroad, the all new Chevy Tahoe 2015 is a ready prospect for the mixed workload of moving people in luxury and taking the things from one place to another as it comes with an updated powertrain, latest technology, much improved comfort and really a glare of sharp look. The all-new 2015 Chevy Tahoe represents the 12th generation of the original SUV and is purely designed for today’s fun loving families needing space for everyone and everything as it  continues to offer legendary spaciousness, unmatched functionality, connectivity and first-class comforts.

The exterior designs and safety is more polished and incisively graved with no single exterior sheet metal panel or lighting element being shared with it full sized pick-ups.  At a distance we might see a box with four wheels, but all that matter is the finest details and engraves that matched the qualities of the vehicle, with a distinctive look.  This calls for a debate, but has to say that it seems more serving that beautiful, with a handsome profile by strangely shaped headlamp clusters and massive chrome grille.    But on the other side, these large grills and shapes indicates and gives us a happy sigh that we will be comfortable inside. The Chevy gives us fold-flat second- and third-row seats that enhance the cargo convenience, including an available power-folding feature.  Though at the side of exterior quality, standard features includes forward collision alert, front park assist, lane departure warning, lane change assist, and rear cross traffic alert. Safety Alert Seat is available and offers directional vibrations to alert the driver about potential crash threats.  With its rewarding, unmatched and first class driving experience, Tahoe has taken us close to our hearts.  But when it comes to the interior safety and luxury, comprise is not a word of suite.  The superior quality materials and enhanced ergonomics demonstrate the harmony of sophistication, workmanship and functional quality. The brand new instrument panel houses an eight-inch color touch screen radio. But wish we could get a better larger screen that matches with the hugeness of the vehicle.  Seems smaller!!.  But diplomatically this reasonably sized LCD sits below those smaller gauges, offering the driver basic information that includes trip odometers and fuel mileage readouts. When optioned up properly, all the surfaces you can touch are covered in a soft-ish leather substitute in either gray or brown shades with attractive stitching. The steering wheel is nicely covered and easy to put into a comfortable position for your driving. The 2015 Tahoe is orchestrated in such a way to deliver the customer a quieter, more-controlled ride and improved steering and braking feel. It all starts on a stronger, fully boxed, perimeter frame, which supports payload and trailering capability that body-frame-integral crossovers and SUVs can’t match. The all-new Tahoe will offer today’s customers the capability of a truck and the amenities of a luxury vehicle.

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe comes with a 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V8 engine and I am sure that sounds familiar to Tahoe fans, but this engine is significantly different from its predecessor. It features direct injection, which helps much improved fuel economy, but never compromising on the power and torque, a nice trick. It also features Active Cylinder Management, which unnoticeably shuts off half of the cylinders under steady cruise to help preserve fuel. The engine comes connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission and of course, you can get 4-wheel drive with a proper off-road-ready low range.

• 5.3-liter V8

• 355 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm

• 383 lb-ft of torque @ 4,100 rpm

• EPA city/highway fuel economy: 16/23 mpg (2WD), 15/22 mpg (4WD)

You may not take a chance of owning this car if your idea is for a full-size SUV and just too much a vehicle.  If you value fuel economy over absolute towing caliber, but if you really need a 4-wheel drive, and if you tow a trailer or a boat to do that surrounded by the best interior comforts and with the highest tech, then this is your ride.
