Overview

The Chevy Tahoe, North America's best-selling full-size SUV, is the right size for a lot of SUV buyers. It can haul more cargo than a Chevy TrailBlazer or Ford Explorer yet it's easier to manuever than a Chevy Suburban, important in crowded parking lots, underground garages, or when parallel parking, plus it'll fit in more garages. Tahoe can carry five passengers and their gear at the same time. Third-row seats are available to increase its capacity to seven passengers, or up to nine if you order bench seats throughout. Pulling a trailer is no problem when equipped with the optional 5.3-liter V8. On the road, Tahoe is smooth and stable. It really is like a rock. It has plenty of power and its brakes work well.The cabin is comfortable and familiar, friendly and functional.Turn off the highway and the Tahoe handles gravel, rugged two-tracks, mud, and snow. In any kind of driving, it's a good choice for someone who needs real carrying capacity. Audio systems with touch-screen navigation are now available. XM Satellite Radio delivers music, radio, sports, and other programming coast to coast. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones keeps the kids busy. Safety features include Hydroboost brakes, which maintain power assist even if the engine stalls or is turned off. A tire-pressure monitor comes standard and has been improved for 2005. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Dynamic Brake Proportioning come standard. StabiliTrak electronic stability control and traction control are available as options. Dual frontal air bags are standard; front side-impact air bags are optional. LATCH child safety-seat anchors are provided. Improvements for 2005 include a quieter, higher-capacity electric cooling fan; a higher-capacity alternator; and aerodynamic enhancements that promise slightly improved fuel economy on some models. Generation 6 OnStar with better hands-free capability is now standard on all Tahoes. And the tire monitor now tells you not only that a tire is low on air, it tells you which tire.
