tahoe-2016

Though it isn’t undergoing any major changes for the 2017 model year, there are still some exciting new things in store for Chevy Tahoe. Two new exterior colors, Blue Velvet Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic, will be available, as will two new wheel choices: 22-inch, 7-spoke Silver wheels with Chrome inserts available on all trims and 22-inch Ultra Bright machined aluminum wheels with Bright Silver finish available exclusively on the Premier (1LZ) trim level. The 2017 Tahoe will also feature new technologies to improve safety and aerodynamics. The Teen Driver feature first introduced on the 2016 Chevy Malibu will be available in the Tahoe, allowing parents to keep tabs on their young drivers’ habits behind the wheel. Front active aero shutters have also been added, which close automatically during high-speed driving and open when the engine needs more air for cooling purposes. These shutters are designed to improve aerodynamics while remaining invisible from the outside of the vehicle.

How impressed are Chevy buyers with their new Chevrolets? If the J.D. Power 2016 Initial Quality Study is an indication, it’s safe to say that they are extremely impressed. For the fourth consecutive year, Chevrolet leads all brands in Initial Quality with five vehicles at the top of their segments. The Chevy Silverado is a double winner, leading in both light-duty and heavy-duty segments. If you’re looking for an SUV, Chevrolet has an award winner at both ends of the spectrum, as the Chevy Equinox picks up the prize for compact SUVs and the Tahoe leads in large SUVs. But it isn’t just the big guys where Chevrolet excels – the Chevrolet Spark also brought home the Initial Quality award for the city car segment. The J.D. Power Initial Quality Study is based on problems experienced by new car owners after 90 days of ownership with the segment leaders being the vehicles with the fewest reported issues.

Kelley Blue Book has compiled their list of the Best Family Cars, and we are pleased to report that three Chevrolet models have made the list. The 2016 Chevy Impala and Malibu both secured spots in the Sedan category, while the Chevy Tahoe earned a place in 3-Row SUVs.

All three Chevy models are equipped with an available 4G LTE WiFi connection as well as Apple CarPlay compatibility, helping to keep the whole family connected and entertained on long road trips. KBB was especially impressed by the advanced safety technologies available in the Chevy Malibu, like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Alert, Automatic Parking Assist, and Teen Driver.

When law enforcement organizations in the US choose vehicles for their K-9 units, more agencies select the Chevrolet Tahoe than any other vehicle. Besides being spacious, rugged, and powerful, the Tahoe also offers an advanced climate control system that helps keep police dogs from overheating. With more cooling vents in the third row area than any other police utility vehicle, the Tahoe gets more cool air to the area where police dogs spend the most time. “Heat exhaustion is one of the top killers of police dogs,” said Michael Werges, sergeant-at-arms, North American Police Dog Association. “It’s imperative to police agencies that K-9 vehicles are equipped with an air conditioning system that can keep the dog’s entire body cool, from head to toe.” Phillips Chevrolet has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of Chevy Tahoes ready to keep you and your own K-9 cool and comfortable.
