Overview

The 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe is packed with new features and engineering improvements. America's best-selling full-size SUV, the Tahoe is just the right size for many folks. Big enough to haul busloads of people and boatloads of cargo, the Tahoe is more manageable than a Suburban. Chevrolet claims the 2003 model brings more than 40 major changes. Some of the new features are dazzling, some of the changes are subtle, and some are quite technical. It all adds up to a safer, more convenient, and more enjoyable vehicle that builds on the Tahoe's excellent platform. Safety improvements abound: GM's StabiliTrak electronic stability program is available for improved control on slippery surfaces. New airbag systems are designed to better protect children and adults of various sizes. Adjustable pedals are available for improved safety for drivers of smaller stature. The brakes have been improved. New features dazzle: XM Satellite Radio delivers CD-quality music, radio, sports, and other programming coast to coast. A rear DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones keeps the kids busy. Second-row bucket seats are available. Improved controls for audio and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) along with an enhanced driver information center make life in the Tahoe a little more convenient. The Tahoe is the perfect size for many people. It carries a lot more cargo than a compact or mid-size SUV like the TrailBlazer. It can carry a lot of cargo and four or five passengers at the same time. Third-row seats are available to increase the capacity to seven passengers. Pulling a trailer is no problem with the optional 5.3-liter V8 and the Tahoe's stable platform. Yet the Tahoe is far more maneuverable than a Suburban, important in crowded parking lots, underground garages, or when parallel parking. And it'll fit in more garages. On the road, the Tahoe is smooth and stable, a rock. It has plenty of power and its brakes work well. The cabin in the 2003 model is comfortable and familiar, friendly and functional, better than the 2002 models. Turn off the highway and the Tahoe handles gravel, rugged two-tracks, mud, and snow. It's a great choice for someone who needs real carrying capacity.
