Tahoe/Suburban Texas Editions Salute the Lone Star State

Deep in the heart of Texas, Chevrolet sells more Tahoe and Suburban models than in any other state and all-new Texas Editions of the SUVs celebrate the Lone Star State's love for Chevy trucks.

The 2015 Tahoe and Suburban Texas Editions go on sale next month, offered in LT or LTZ trims, and distinguished by exclusive badging. They also feature a special package of options for $2,195 for the LT and $1,095 for the LTZ in addition to the SUVs' retail prices, including:

  • Max Trailering Package, which includes a 3.42 axle ratio and trailer brake controller in addition to the standard hitch receiver and seven-wire harness
  • Twenty-inch polished aluminum wheels on LT models
  • Twenty-two-inch premium painted aluminum wheels on LTZ models
  • Additional nine-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Navigation radio on LT models (it is standard on LTZ.)

"Texas is Chevy truck country and the new Tahoe and Suburban Texas Editions celebrate that passion like Friday night football," said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Marketing. "These SUVs are part of the very fabric of Texas life."

The Tahoe and Suburban are woven into the Texas economy. With combined retail sales in the state up 37 percent for the first eight months of 2014, they've not only kept dealers busy, but the workers at the Arlington Assembly plant, where they're built. The plant marked its 60th anniversary earlier this year and started building the Suburban and Tahoe in 2000. More than 4,500 Arlington employees have been working on three shifts, seven days a week to keep up with the full-size SUV demand.

Since opening in 1954, Arlington Assembly has more than tripled in size and produced nearly 10 million vehicles.

Texas is also the Chevrolet Silverado's largest market, with nearly 40,000 retail sales for the first eight months of the year. In addition to a Texas Edition of the pickup, Chevrolet earlier announced a special University of Texas version for 2015. Along with the special Texas Edition content, it features an exclusive Sunset Orange Metallic exterior color accented with UT graphics on the rear fenders and tailgate.

Strong sales of the Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado in Texas helped propel a 14-percent increase in national Chevrolet truck sales in August. Tahoe and Suburban had their best retail sales month in six years, while Silverado's overall sales were also the best since 2008.
