Chevy Tahoe

The Chevrolet Tahoe is more than a popular Sports Utility Vehicle for youthful individuals across America. In fact, the Tahoe is a popular alternative to the Ford Crown Victoria for police divisions in rural areas. That might just be a reason to head out of town to get your first sergeant position. The Chevrolet Tahoe, and consequently the GMC Yukon, is a full-size SUV from General Motors. The Tahoe is not exactly a new car and to understand this some history has to be dug up. Chevrolet and GMC both used to sell two different-sized SUVs under the names Blazer and Jimmy. These models were on the market until the early 1990s. GMC moved ahead and rebadged the full-size Jimmy as the Yukon in 1992. Two years later in order to "keep up with the Jones'" Chevrolet introduced the compact S-10 Blazer as the Blazer, and renamed the full-size Blazer as the Tahoe. Both the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon currently serve as General Motors' full-size SUVs. Drivers looking for something with a little more room and a lengthened wheelbase can turn to some alternative models. The Suburban would take the place of the Tahoe in that case and the Yukon XL would take that place for the Yukon. The Tahoe is certainly a nice car but not really a luxury vehicle and if that is what you are looking for the Denali is a good one to look at. It joined the Yukon lineup in 1998. As of 2002, a Denali adaptation of the Yukon XL was also available as the Yukon XL Denali. The future of the Tahoe is uncertain at this point given the changing preference for more fuel efficient vehicles and thus for smaller cars. It will be interesting to see if Chevrolet is able to produce something that is both of quality SUV status and earth friendly at the same time.
