The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is Success Defined.

Back in the early 90’s Chevy rebadged the full-sized Blazer, the new name was the Tahoe and it certainly marked a turning point for this platform. The name Tahoe comes from, and refers to a rugged and scenic area located in the western part of the country named Lake Tahoe and one thing is certain, the name is appropriate for this vehicle.

Refined Chassis

Here in 2015, the improvements continue to impress even the toughest critics. The fully boxed frame is built using high-strength steel that is considerably more rigid structurally than on earlier models and the hydroformed rails and front axle mounts are redesigned to increase the overall structural strength of the platform. Even with the optional 22-inch wheels, the Tahoe maintains its luxury-car ride.

Improved Suspension

Those owners of earlier Tahoes will immediately notice a solid, redefined type of feel in this newest 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, the body roll is significantly reduced and the overall feeling of stability permeates all aspects of the drive. The suspension is responsive and crisp and while the ride quality is firm, it doesn’t leave you feeling exhausted after extended drive times. We put more than 1,000 miles on our test model and we felt no lower back pain or lumbar discomfort.

Improved Electric Steering

One of the features that we were a bit hesitant to endorse was the electric steering, many seasoned drivers have complained about this newest steering technology because so much of the organic feel is lost with it.
Because there is now no direct link between the road and the steering wheel, many drivers have complained that  vehicles equipped with electric steering are less pleasurable to drive, here with the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
that is not the case, we found the steering to be accurate and responsive.

Engine and Transmission

Chevy tahoe engine 2015The 5.3 liter Eco-Tec V8 is more than capable with its 355 horsepower and 383 lb. ft. of torque. The active fuel management system is one of the most impressive and efficient systems in the industry, our test model was averaging 21.6 MPG consistently. The 6L80 six speed automatic transmission has become one of our favorites here at Horsepower Broadcasting. This unit is one of the most rugged and durable units on the road with seven forward ratios (when you include the Chevy tahoe transmission 2015torque converter clutch). When we took this vehicle to our Horsepower performance division and attached a digital scanner we found the powertrain to be one of the finest, most advanced in the automotive world. The transmission is controlled via a multi-plexing serial data stream and the algorithms are most impressive.
The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is a multi-purpose vehicle that delivers at every level and one thing is sure, it’s an SUV that won’t disappoint you.
