The latest vehicle in line for release is the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe model. It is a full-size truck which offers us all the towing capacity we would need and expect to get from a car like this and at the same time offers us a seating for up to nine people. The announcement of the car came recently and the car is going to appear sooner than we thought it would.
The Chevy Tahoe car is slotted right between the biggest full-size SUV vehicles and the biggest of crossover vehicles. Its best features are not only the ability to pack in nine people at the same time but also a very strong towing capacity which comes up to 8,300 pounds, which none of the rivaling car-based models cannot hope to ever achieve.
The Tahoe brand has managed to get to the top of the segment by offering something that the rivals do not. As vehicles like Ford Expedition and Nissan Armada cannot be taken out of the talks when choosing the best one in the segment, the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe manages to trump them all by offering more power, a lot of interior comfort and spacing inside.
The model is going to come out soon and it comes back with the standard set of trims, namely the LS, LT and Premier trim models are all going to come back and are going to be offered for sale for the 2017 version. This review will help you get a better glance of the car.
2017 Chevrolet Tahoe Exterior
Although the exterior styling of the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe is not anything new, the car has its own advantages. The styling is simple and reserved and really not that adventurous looking, but it actually does not need to be in order to appease the people from the segment. This time they have decided not to base the car mostly on the Silverado design. The car keeps mostly to itself and does not borrow the body panels from the brother vehicle.
The doors are actually placed on the side of the body in the same manner that the GM’s pickups are doing it but that is the only resemblance it has compared to the other vehicles. With the new 2017 redesign the Tahoe is going to be a bit upright and will certainly be tougher looking. The car has a very tall commanding stance which helps it achieve that and also has some angular lines as well which are a big help. The car also has some more aerodynamic lines which is going to help address the gas mileage specs and make the car consume less fuel.
Interior Appearance and Additions
Inside the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe the car is going to have less straight edges compared to the outside. The interior is appropriately smoother and curved and provides more luxury than it has before. The initial thought was to make the car much more comfortable on the inside and now besides the added power we also have more convenience accenting the interior of the car.
The design of the dash is pretty straightforward and it manages to merge the car-like aspects with the standard look of a truck. The layout of controls is pretty straightforward as well and brings us a much convenient design compared to what we had so far. The center piece of the dash is a 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen which you can use to control the various aspects of the car.
As far as the comfort is concerned, the car manages to adopt higher grade materials which actually go a level up compared to all the previous GM models. Comfort is a big factor and the leather and comfort enhancing pieces placed on the inside really do a lot of help for it.
Engine Specs and Capability
The engine of the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe is perfect for enabling the car to tow things and haul people. The car uses a 3.5- liter V-8 engine in its base form which delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, and it also manages to cut down on fuel consumption by adding direct fuel injection cylinder-shutoff technology. The car is combined with a 6-speed shifter which enables better and smoother shifting ability which translates into 8,600 pounds of towing capacity.
As far as the fuel economy is concerned the car is able to make 16 mpg city, 23 highway, 18 combined with the rear-wheel drive option and also goes to 16/22/18 mpg with the all-wheel drive for its EPA scores.
Release Date and Price
The model is actually going to be released sooner so we can expect the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe by the beginning of the year. The car is going to be certainly already seen roaming the streets at the very start of 2017 as the sales start in February as the release date states.
The starting price for the Chevy Tahoe is 47,215 dollars are a base MSRP rate for the base version. The LT model is going to be priced at 52,345 dollars while the Premier is the highest priced one coming at 62,020 dollars.
