About The Tahoe

The full-size SUV Chevrolet Tahoe has been produced for the North American market since 1991 and has gone through five generations of design.

In order to get the most enjoyment from the vehicle, we recommend that you read the appropriate owner’s manual carefully.

It will cover all aspects of operating a Chevrolet Tahoe including how to start it up, what fluids need to be checked regularly, and how to change a tire in case of an emergency.

This car has also been re-badged by other manufacturers as the GMC Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade, sharing many of the same mechanical parts but the appearance is different.

Early generations of Tahoe that were released in the early 1990s were limited to several large displacement engines and a 4 speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission.

Engine choices were adapted over the years but stayed relatively large in order to shift the heavyweight Tahoe body around, as demonstrated in the Chevrolet Tahoe manual.

A hybrid option became available in 2007 allowing the car to recycle lost power from braking. The car could be driven in either electric mode, fuel only or a mix of the two.

Alongside the hybrid trim (which doesn’t have great reviews) is a variety of others to help it appeal to many different budgets, such as:

  • High Country
  • Limited
  • LS
  • LT
  • LTZ
  • Premier
  • RST
  • Z71

Recent versions of the car offer a cheaper to run diesel alternative with only one transmission option on all engine sizes, a 10 speed automatic to squeeze many miles as possible from the fuel.

Modern generations of Tahoe have been built in Texas and marketed mainly at the North American markets due to its large size attracting heavy taxes elsewhere in the world.

You can see the huge size of the vehicle and the abundance of luxuries offered inside it by reading the official Chevrolet Tahoe owner’s manual for each year of car.

The car has proved popular with police forces in the USA leading Chevrolet to produce a special version that has increased reliability for heavy-duty scenarios, this is known as the PPV version.

Q: Is the Chevy Tahoe a good SUV?

Q: Are Chevrolet Tahoes reliable?

A: When compared to other full-size SUVs the Tahoe comes out above average according to surveys given to owners of the car.
