July 22nd, 2014 - Lights, camera, action! A massive crowd at the Avenues mall gathered around to what could have been easily mistaken as a scene from a futuristic martial arts movie. It was quite extraordinary to the unsuspected mall goers who witnessed the show: martial arts specialists and stuntmen garbed in flashy superheroes attire, showing off their awe-inspiring fighting choreography, marvelously dodging, punching and kicking around the All-New 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, which took center stage. Indeed, it was a fitting reveal to the equally impressive, full-size SUV, whose stunning design and technological features are considered a technical leap in the automotive industry. Talks and rumors about the event had circulated around the social networking platforms, promising something remarkable especially to car loves and action movie fans. These talks were put to rest precisely at 10:30PM, on 16 July 2014, when the All-New 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe was revealed in a breathtaking event.
The All-New 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban 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.
Improved aerodynamics also contributes to a quieter interior.
New functionality and technology features found on both vehicles for 2015 include:
Both vehicles offer great cargo room, with Suburban delivering up to 3,429 liters behind the front seats and Tahoe delivering a maximum of 2,681 liters.
The all-new 2015 Tahoe and Suburban are available in three trim levels – LS, LT and LTZ, with a choice of 2WD and 4WD.
360 degrees of safety
The All New 2015 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.
The exterior designs of the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban are more refined and precisely sculpted. Not a single exterior sheet metal panel or lighting element is shared with Chevrolet's full-size pick-ups.
All-new styling not only advances the Tahoe and Suburban's design, but contributes to a quieter ride. New inlaid doors fit into the body side openings instead of over the top of the body, 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 aluminum hood and lift gate panels also enhance efficiency through reduced overall mass.
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 LTZ model.
Inside, premium materials and enhanced ergonomics demonstrate the Tahoe and Suburban's blend of sophistication, craftsmanship and function. A new instrument panel houses an available eight-inch color touch screen for MyLink infotainment system. There is a secured storage bin behind the motorized screen. The compartmentalized center console is large enough to store a laptop or iPad.
The All New 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban's next-generation MyLink gives customers the best of both worlds when it comes to infotainment. It provides easy, intuitive operation of basic functions, yet it is also highly customizable and capable of linking up to 10 devices such as smartphones, SD cards and MP3 players, giving customers and their families more ways of staying connected.
Enhanced connectivity and convenience includes a new Text-to-Voice feature for smartphone users with Bluetooth profile (M.A.P.), which reads incoming texts through the vehicle's speakers, and Siri Eyes Free for iPhone iOS 6 and iOS 7 users to enhance connectivity and convenience. Each enables voice-controlled connectivity, to help keep phones in pockets and hands on the wheel.
The All-New 2015 Tahoe and Suburban are engineered to deliver the customer a quieter, more-controlled ride and improved steering and braking feel. It all starts on a stronger, fully boxed, perimeter frame, which supports payload and trailering capability that body-frame-integral crossovers and SUVs can't match. The all-new Tahoe and Suburban will offer today's customers the capability of a truck and the amenities of a luxury vehicle.
The driving experience of the new SUVs is further enhanced with:
Tahoe and Suburban's standard 5.3L V-8 feature state-of-the-art technologies, including direct injection, cylinder deactivation, continuously variable valve timing and an advanced combustion system, designed to make the most of power, torque and efficiency across a broad range of operating conditions.
Improved engine mounts, electronic throttle control, adaptive exhaust systems, improved aerodynamics and other technologies help the engines operate in four-cylinder mode more often with Active Fuel Management, further increasing efficiency.
The engine is mated to a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission, featuring TapShift control, Tow/Haul mode and Auto Grade Braking.
All customers of the All New 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will receive a new level of customer experience courtesy of Chevrolet Care, which ensures hassle-free service and the lowest maintenance cost.
