2014 Chevrolet Tahoe – The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe is a full size SUV that shares its platform with the GMC Yukon, Cadillac Escalade and Chevy Silverado. While the truck-based structure and V-8 may seem outdated, they continue to provide the Tahoe with excellent off-road and towing capabilities. Sales have slowed the Tahoe, GM plans to introduce a new version of the SUV soon.
The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe is a survivor because of its no-nonsense design and durability. It is a competitor to the likes of the Nissan Armada, Toyota Sequoia and Ford Expedition – but really, there is nothing so good as GM’s Chevy Tahoe / Suburban and GMC Yukon lineup sale. The Tahoe could even be seen as a competitor to vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, pitching its Tahoe Hybrid against the Benz’s Bluetec diesel.
The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevy’s latest SUV label, arrived in the 1995 model year, replacing the baadjiewapen and with a four-door model. Based on the large GM trucks, Tahoe driven in most cases with a large 5.7-liter V-8. A turbodiesel version found several shows and a few buyers. In this generation, sale until the 1998 model year, GM has added a driver-side airbag and a luxury-trim Limited package, which was sold in the 2000 model year. This version overlaps with the whole new “GMT800” Chevy Tahoe, which was new for the 2000 model year.
2000-2006 Chevy Tahoe a choice of V-8 engines, either a 4.8-liter V-8 or a 5.3-liter V-8, separated only by 10 horsepower. A four-speed automatic care of the shift in all versions, and the Tahoe came in the rear-or four-wheel drive versions. A more decent appearance was not quite matched by a lackluster interior, but with a good towing capacity and additions such as stability control and more airbags, the Tahoe drove the SUV wave of popularity after a best seller in the Chevy truck occupation became.
GM advanced its plans for the GMT800 trucks and SUVs to replace it with a GMT900 family of vehicles – and the 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe prove that the move was in mechanical terms, even if SUV sales were about to fall off a proverbial cliff. New Tahoe’s sharp lines and improved body rigidity borrowed a mature, sophisticated look, one that even match with a nice interior. Transferred all hauling and towing ability, with a more comfortable five-or six-seat interior package – but the powertrains fuel economy boost that set off on the marketing side by adding a 403-horsepower, 6.2- liter V-8.
The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid was introduced in 2009. With a large 332-hp, 6.0-liter V-8 and a version of the Two-Mode Hybrid system that GM pioneered with BMW, Daimler and Chrysler, running as high as 20 mpg city, 23 highway . Hybrid packaging is essentially the same battery pack located under the second row of seats, and it can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
In recent years, minimal changes to the Tahoe lineup. Trailer Sway Control is added for 2012, and Powertrain Grade braking system is a new addition for 2013; both can improve towing stability and security.
