The Chevy Tahoe has no major changes for 2013. It just gets a higher-capacity battery and a couple of new exterior colors, and the grade braking function, which uses engine compression to help slow the vehicle when going down hills, now works in the normal transmission mode instead of only in the Tow/Haul setting.
The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV gains a new navigation radio as well as adds trailer sway control and hill start assist to its standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control. The LTZ trim gains a heated steering wheel, side blind zone alert and heated and cooling front seats, while the LT trim gains heated front seats.
Changes for 2011 include the addition of integrated trailer brake control to the Trailering package, some new colors and the availability of 20-inch chrome wheels on the LTZ trim. The LS trim gains as standard equipment Bluetooth, rear seat audio controls, premium cloth seats, luggage rack center rails and body color door handles and mirrors.
All 5.3-liter engines now feature variable valve timing and are E85 compatible. A new USB port is added to all models, while the Z71 off-road suspension is now available on the 1LT trim. A single-speed transfer case is made standard on all four-wheel-drive models, with a two-speed unit offered as optional equipment.
The most popular full-size SUV in America has been completely re-done for the 2007 model year. The extensive re-design includes improved chassis and steering, a quieter, more upscale interior and segment-leading fuel economy thanks to the new line of Active Fuel Management-equipped V8 engines. As the bestselling full-size SUV since the previous redesign in 2001, the Tahoe has long had a lot going for it, including top rankings in the J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Survey. Though the exterior styling is a bit less distinctive than the previous version, the Tahoe is still handsome, and its ride quality and overall responsiveness are markedly improved.
