The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban full-size SUVs were introduced today and the changes are quite surprising. Designed to be more functional, both vehicles offer more safety features as well as a greater range of advanced technology. The new full-size SUVs not only look better, but the new design helps them to deliver improved aerodynamics which contribute to a quieter ride and a reduced fuel consumption.
New functionality and technology features were added on both vehicles, such as: fold-flat second- and third-row seats, passenger get extra leg room (2 inches), eight-inch color touch screen radio with MyLink connectivity, six USB ports and sic power outlets including a 110-volt three-prong outlet, rear seat entertainment system with dual screens (Suburban only) and Blu-ray DVD player, conversation mirror in the overhead console that provides a panoramic view of the rear seats, keyless entry and push-button start.
Moreover, the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban offer 360 degrees of safety and come with forward collision alert, front park assist, lane departure warning, lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert and adaptive cruise control.
Safety Alert Seat is available and offers directional vibrations to alert the driver about potential crash threats. If the exterior design looks impressive, the interior was also refreshed and offers premium materials and enhanced ergonomics. Other features offered by the two new full-size SUVs are the 18-inch standard wheels, electric variable-assist power steering system and four-wheel-disc brake system with Duralife brake rotors.
Moreover, the LTZ models include third-generation magnetic ride control, a real-time damping system that delivers more precise body motion control by "reading" the road every millisecond and changing damping in just five milliseconds.
Under the hood, both vehicles have the standard 5.3-liter V8, mated to a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission featuring TapShift control, Tow/Haul mode and Auto Grade Braking. The 5.3-liter V8 engine delivers 355 hp and 519 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque. The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will hit the dealerships in the first quarter of 2014 and will be built at GM’s Arlington, Texas assembly plant.
With regards to safety, the Yukon lineup integrates new cutting-edge technologies to help secure the driver and passengers before, during, and after an impact. They incorporate a forward radar system and the segment's only front seat center-mounted air bag (models with bucket seats), which is managed to give extra assurance to drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes, where the affected occupant is on the opposite, non-struck side of the car.
Standard and accessible safety features, dependent upon the model, additionally integrate forward collision alert, lane departure waning, front park, rear cross traffic alert, lane change assist, front and rear automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, and GM’s Safety Alert Seat. It provides leading vibrations to notify the driver about incoming collision threats.
Intense styling, improved sophistication
Brand-new exterior and interior designs propel GMC's professional grade aesthetic with components intended to be stunning and reliable. The exteriors are smoother and more aerodynamic, augmenting effectiveness on the expressway and adding to the all-new Yukon's relaxed ride.
Strong styling cues incorporate extremely detailed, chrome-accented grilles rivalled with GMC's trademark C-shaped light-emitting diode lighting motif, front and rear. Projector-beam headlamps are default on Yukon and Yukon XL. The particular Denali models are easily distinguishable by their trademark chrome grille and exceptional exterior appointments, including premier high-intensity discharge headlamps.
