In a sprawling, bustling city like Dallas, sometimes you need a brawny, aggressive SUV to get you through the day. The 2016 Chevy Tahoe comes with a magazine of features that Dallas drivers will love.
The Tahoe is a 204-inch (that’s 17 feet) behemoth that can carry up to seven passengers. With a curb weight of 5,756 pounds, you’ll be one of the most powerful things on the Dallas roads when you take off in your Tahoe. Everything in the Tahoe is designed to be Texas-big, which makes it great for the right kind of Dallas driver.
When you’re heading to the Dallas Sierra Club or Cedar Hill State Park, you want a vehicle that can carry all your camping gear and your entire family. You may even need to tug an RV behind you and bring a few bikes along for the ride. The Chevy Tahoe has 94.7 cubic feet of cargo space, so you can fit your tent, your cooler, and all your sporting equipment. The 2016 Tahoe can tow between 6,400 and 8,600 pounds, so if tent camping isn’t your thing, hitch up your RV (or your boat) with no problem.
Marvelous Safety Features
The Tahoe’s safety features are a mix of prevention technology to keep you from crashing and safety technology that cocoons you in the event of a crash. Side Blind Zone Alert and Lane Keep Assist help keep you away from trouble when you’re driving in heavy traffic, and seven air bags work with the high-strength steel safety cage to keep you and your loved ones as safe as can be.
Benefit from the best Chevy has to offer when you get into the cockpit. The Tahoe comes equipped with the 8-inch MyLink display, which puts all your favorite infotainment options in clever tile icons you can customize and access with the touch of a finger. Use MyLink to connect to Apple CarPlay. The Tahoe also comes with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, which can connect as many as seven devices.
Worried you’re going to hit traffic on the way to work? The Tahoe comes with RemoteLink, which lets you start your car through an app, and it connects to OnStar to give you the best in navigation and roadside assistance. It is everything you need to get through traffic safely and on time.
The 16-valve, 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine gives you 355 horsepower at 5,600 rmp and 383 pound-foot of torque at 4,100 rpm, so you’ll have to hit the gas a little hard to push the Tahoe up to full power. Once it’s there, though, it’s a formidable machine. The Tahoe gets an EPA estimated 16 miles per gallon city and 23 mpg highway, which is impressive for a vehicle of this size and when compared to competitors.
Crank up your favorite Pandora station, toss your sports gear in the back, and take a half-day at the office. You and your Tahoe have much, much better things to do.
