July 17th, 2014 -Yusuf A. Alghanim & Sons Automotive, the exclusive distributor of Chevrolet vehicles in Kuwait, celebrated the holy month of Ramadan with a special Ghabka celebration at the Safir Hotel Tent on Monday, 14th July. Among the attendees at the event were Chevrolet Alghanim's fleet customers, representatives from General Motors and Chevrolet Alghanim, the esteemed media, and loyal Tahoe and Suburban customers who gathered to enjoy traditional Ramadan treats and a special evening of togetherness.
The evening also witnessed a surprise attraction. The guests were given a sneak peek on the All-New 2015 Tahoe and Suburban, where these two masterpieces captivated the attendees and turned out to be the talk of the evening. Guests also enjoyed test drives and were fascinated by the luxurious technologically advanced interiors, elegant and tough exteriors, as well as enhanced handling and driving experience of these new arrivals.
Mr. Abdullah Mouazzen, the Executive Sales Director at Chevrolet Alghanim, took the opportunity to welcome the guests and highlight a few words about the latest features of the All-New 2015 Tahoe and Suburban, one of the most popular and best selling cars in Kuwait. In his speech, Mr. Mouazzen stressed on the newest upgrades and safety features that the All New Tahoe comes equipped with, in addition to the state-of-the-art technology and signature performance that has always made Chevrolet Tahoe the best in its segment.
Following Mr. Mouazzen was Mr. Bader Al-Houssami, the Regional Sales Manager of General Motors in the Middle East, who praised the historic partnership that linked Chevrolet with Yusuf A. Alghanim & Sons Automotive as the very first dealer for GM in the GCC region, which was marked as a successful journey based on an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and industry best practices. He also talked briefly about how Chevrolet, back in 1935, founded the SUV segment by introducing the first SUV- Suburban Carryall, since then the brand has become renowned for designing engineering and building great SUV's.
After that, Ahmed Soudodi, the Regional Brand Manager for Chevrolet conducted a walk-around, focusing more thoroughly on how the All-New 2015 Tahoe combines luxury, functionality, technology and appeal that few SUVs can match today, with features such as Power Fold-flat second and third-row seats that enhance cargo convenience, greater legroom for second-row passengers along with easier entry/exit, Eight-inch Color Touch Screen Radio with next-generation MyLink connectivity, up to six USB ports and six power outlets including a 230-volt three-prong outlet supporting electronic devices of all kinds (up to 12 charging locations), Keyless Entry and Push-button Start, Magnetic Ride Control, Advanced Crash Avoidance and Driver Assistance Technologies and Rear-seat Entertainment System.
The All-New versions of Chevrolet's full-size SUVs are more efficient
than ever, thanks to a range of vehicle-wide enhancements that include
more aerodynamic designs and a new, direct-injected EcoTec3 5.3L engine
generating 355 hp. The exterior design of the All-New 2015 Tahoe is
superbly refined and precisely sculpted. Projector-beam headlamps flank
the Chevrolet-signature dual-port grille – chrome on all models – and
sweep into the front fenders. High-intensity discharge headlamps and
light-emitting diode daytime running lamps are included on the up level
These renewed styling advances in the All-New 2015 Tahoe design such as new inlaid doors fit into the body side openings instead of over the top of the body, thus significantly improving the quietness of the interior cabin and contributing to improved aerodynamics – an attribute that helps the vehicles slip through the air on the highway with less drag for greater efficiency. Lightweight Aluminium hood and lift gate panels also enhance efficiency through reduced overall mass.The interior is crafted to be a delight. Premium materials and enhanced ergonomics demonstrate the Tahoe blend of sophistication, craftsmanship and function. A new instrument panel houses eight-inch color touch screen for MyLink infotainment system. There is a secured storage bin behind the motorized screen. The compartmentalized centre console is large enough to store a laptop or iPad.
Tahoe and Suburban incorporate new technologies – including radar –
that contributes to 360 degrees of crash avoidance and occupant
protection. Standard and available features include forward collision
alert, front park assist, lane departure warning, lane change assist,
rear cross traffic alert and adaptive cruise control. Chevrolet's Safety
Alert Seat is available and offers directional vibrations to alert the
driver about potential crash threats.
Both vehicles also offer 7 airbags including the segment's only front-seat center air bag (bucket-seat models), which is engineered to provide additional protection for drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes, where the affected occupant is on the opposite, non-struck side of the vehicle.
Chevrolet's full-size SUVs have also been designed with greater security features to thwart theft attempts, including available window break in or glass-break, vertical-movement and interior movement sensors. Along with triggering the vehicles' alarm systems, some of the features shut down key control systems to make it almost impossible to start or move them.
Building relationships and celebrating partnership is always an ongoing commitment for Chevrolet Alghanim. The event was truly magical, where everyone enjoyed the Ghabka in a great ambience, but most importantly also got the chance to be amongst the first to witness these two masterpieces, the All New 2015 Tahoe and Suburban.
