The popularity of the SUV segment has rapidly expanded during the past few years. Automakers are beginning to shift their production focus away from sedans and toward these utility models. Chevrolet’s been ahead of the pack for quite some time, seeing as how the Chevrolet Tahoe has been America’s best-selling full-size SUV for years. Chevy’s looking to retain that title with the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe, a vehicle that highlights the best aspects of the SUV segment.
Packing the power that you need
In order to transport you and your crew to any destination, the 2019 Chevy Tahoe needs to pack a ton of power. Fortunately the engineers at Chevrolet have supplied the Tahoe with two different performance-based powertrains. The Tahoe’s standard engine is a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 model. This powertrain can produce up to 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, certainly not performance figures to scoff at. Still, if you want the most power out of your Chevy Tahoe, opt for the available 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine. With this engine under the hood, the Tahoe is capable of generating 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Advanced amenities for entertainment
A modern SUV needs to come equipped with tons of tech to keep passengers engaged on even the longest drives. You’ll be happy to learn that the 2019 Tahoe comes equipped with some of the industry’s most advanced infotainment amenities. For example, the Tahoe’s standard infotainment setup comes in the form of its Chevrolet Infotainment System. This system comes packaged with an intuitive 8-inch diagonal color touch screen, which you can use to access your favorite apps while on the go.
For even more advanced entertainment tech, upgrade to one of the Tahoe’s higher trim levels. The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe Premier includes a Bose® Centerpoint® Surround Sound 10-speaker audio system, which allows you to fill the Tahoe’s cavernous cabin with your favorite music.
Features to keep you safe
Of course, the Tahoe’s advanced tech isn’t just used for entertainment purposes. The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe also comes equipped with one of the industry’s most comprehensive safety suites. Standard safety systems include a rear vision camera and Teen Driver mode, which helps you keep tabs on your younger drivers. The Tahoe also includes OnStar® and Chevrolet Connected Services. The Chevy Tahoe’s available safety features are even more advanced. That includes the Adaptive Cruise Control system, which lets you stay with the flow of traffic with minimal effort on your part.
With both advanced features and plenty of power, the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe is the ideal example of what a contemporary SUV should be.
