BAY CITY, Mich.- With the last refresh occurring back in 2007, the longest running nameplate in the automotive industry is getting a much needed facelift! In their 12th and 5th generations respectively, the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe debuted recently revealing updates both inside and out. The redesigned 2015 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban received similar updates, with the major difference between the two being the Suburban's longer length.
At nearly 80 continuous years, the Chevy Suburban is the longest running nameplate in the auto industry and though the recent updates are subtle, they are significant to the SUV's evolution. The Tahoe may be a few years younger, but remains just as popular as its larger counterpart with similar styling/ In an effort to convey a more "sporty" look, every single body panel on the 2015 Chevy SUV's have been redesigned along with obviously different front ends and headlights. Specifically the doors and side glass have been reworked to fit into the bodyside, rather than wrapping up into the roof, with a smoother overall look down the sides that creates a more squared-off look which actually improves interior space.
The redesigned Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe are both powered by General Motor's Ecotec3 5.3-liter V8 engine, boating 355 horsepower with 383 lb.-ft of torque. While mileage for the 2015 Tahoe/Suburban has not yet been released, improved fuel economy is expected thanks to the engine's cylinder deactivation. And for those who have towing needs, the SUV's are just as capable. The 2015 Chevy Tahoe has been rated with a towing capacity of 8,500 pounds for two-wheel-drive models and 8,300 pounds for four-wheel-drive versions. The lengthier 2015 Suburban has been rated with a towing capacity of 8,300 pounds for two-wheel-drive models and 8,000 pounds for four-wheel drive versions.
The interior of the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban has also been updated to match the impressive exterior. Up front, the console has been completely revised with significantly higher-quality materials to feel more "carlike." Plus, the available 8-inch touch-screen with Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system can actually slide up, revealing storage space behind the screen. In the back, second-row passengers will enjoy two more inches of legroom, while the new third-row power fold-flat seat can fold down into the cargo area at the touch of a button. If you need even more space, another switch can fold down the second-row too, creating a relatively flat load floor. If you're looking to keep your back seat passengers entertained, you can opt for a Blu-ray player with 9-inch screen, five auxiliary power sockets, 110-volt power outlet and six USB outlets for personal electronics.
As the automaker with the highest safety ratings, the 2015 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe also received new high-tech equipment to keep drivers and passengers safe. New driver assist technologies in the SUV's include forward collision alert, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, a safety alert seat, front and rear park assist, and center side airbags in the front.
