Despite the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban Z71 editions, GM also unveiled at the Texas State Fair the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Texas editions. Celebrating the Lone Star State’s love for Chevrolet trucks, the new 2015 Tahoe and Suburban Texas editions will go on sale next month and will be offered in LT or LTZ trim.
According to the press release, the vehicles feature a special package of options that costs $2,195 on the LT and $1095 on the LTZ trim.
The package includes the Max Trailering Package that offers a 3.42 axle ratio and trailer brake controller in addition to the standard hitch receiver and seven-wire harness, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels on the LT models and 22-inch premium painted aluminum wheels on LTZ models.
In addition, the package offers a 9-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio and navigation radio on LT models (offered as standard on LTZ models).
Under the hood, there is a standard 5.3-liter V8 engine that produces 355 hp and 519 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque.
The new 2015 Tahoe and Suburban are provided with a more refined and well-sculpted exterior. Amazingly, these vehicles don’t share any exterior sheet metal panel or lighting element with its full-size pick-up siblings.
Ken Parkinson, executive director of design, remarked that the designs of the all-new Tahoe and Suburban communicate their higher levels of functionality, technology and refinement – allowing these all-new SUVs to convey a new presence and an unmistakable brand heritage.
Both feature new inlaid doors that – instead of fitting over the top of the body – fit into the side openings, helping enhance interior quietness while helping improve aerodynamics and overall efficiency. Efficiency is also improved by reducing overall mass, as achieved by employing aluminum as material for the aluminum bonnet and lift gate panels.
Both the Tahoe and Suburban are equipped with Chevrolet’s signature dual-port grille finished in chrome and flanked by projector-beam headlamps. Sweeping into the front fenders, these headlamps are provided as high-intensity discharge units on the LTZ model, as complemented by light emitting diode daytime (LED) running lamps.
Meanwhile, the interior of the all-new Tahoe and Suburban boasts of premium materials and improved ergonomics – reflecting their high levels of sophistication and craftsmanship. The cabin features a new instrument panel with an available eight-inch color touch screen radio as well as a secured storage bin behind the motorized display. The center console comes with a compartment that is large enough to accommodate a laptop or iPad.
