If you’re in the market for a Chevrolet Tahoe, this is a good dependable vehicle. It has all of your features for you and your family’s needs. Like 4WD for the winter and 3rd row seating for more storage and more room for passengers. With the Tahoe, you get an option: either bench seating or bucket seats with armrests in the middle row. With the 3rd row option you can remove or fold down the third row or leave it in the Tahoe depending on what you’re hauling. And if you’re getting a base model Chevrolet Tahoe, they have an option to get a 5.3 liter vortec v8 engine that has 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. I recommend the 5.3 engine more than the 6.2 v8 engine because the 5.3 is more convenient for gas mileage. For the flex fuel option you can put it in a lower gear to save the brakes and improve the gas mileage. The 6.2 vortec engine is worst on fuel economy. The fuel economy for the Chevrolet Tahoe is 19 combined city and highway mpg. The 2018 model 2WD Tahoe has 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.
The Chevrolet Tahoe has many great safety options and safety features, such as rear vision camera as a standard safety feature. And limited slip rear differential is another standard safety feature. And yes, air bags are a very important safety feature for any vehicle. You should always have daytime running lights for any vehicle for sure, and the Tahoe does. And yes, OnStar is a very important safety feature for any Chevrolet vehicle. The Chevrolet Tahoe has a 5-star overall frontal crash rating and a 5-star overall side crash rating. A Chevrolet Tahoe has other very impressive safety features such as:
- Stabilitrak electronic stability control system
- Rear park assist
- Onstar chevrolet connect services capability
- Keyless open
- Keyless start
- Front and rear park assist
With the Chevrolet Tahoe you have 2 luxury trim models available at a higher price range, and they are Z71 and LTZ. Some luxury trims include:
- Chrome exhaust tip
- Third row seats ,50/50 split bench
- 2nd row heated seats
- 17 in. chrome alloy wheels
I prefer the 2nd generation of a Tahoe, which is the 2007-2012 models. The 2nd generation Chevrolet Tahoe exterior colors are beige, Bermuda Blue Metallic, black, Dark Blue Metallic, Gold Mist Metallic, gray, silver, red, Summit White. The interior colors for the 2nd generation Chevrolet Tahoes are gray, black, beige. I think that you would like a Chevrolet Tahoe for all your traveling needs because of the room and torque, and because of the specific trims and options such as 3rd row seating and 4WD. The Chevrolet Tahoe is really a good vehicle for somebody that”s wanting room and power. With the Chevrolet Tahoe it does have the option for 2nd row split bench seating or with 2nd row bucket seats. But I recommend the bench because its more feasible to have that option. With the Chevrolet Tahoe you have the option to have a 4 speed automatic transmission or the 6 speed automatic transmission. But I recommend the 4 speed automatic transmission because it’s with the 2001 and 2004 body style of the Chevrolet Tahoe. I think you would like to buy a Chevrolet Tahoe for a good traveling vehicle because of the room and the power.
