Chevrolet has unveiled the all-new versions of the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban SUVs today at an event in NYC. The all-new SUVs are now more refined and get new safety features and an increased range of advanced technologies.
The exterior designs of the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban are more refined than before and Chevrolet is quick to point out that not a single exterior sheet metal panel or lighting element is shared with Chevrolet’s full-size pick-ups. “The designs of the all-new Tahoe and Suburban reflect their greater functionality, technology and refinement, forging a new presence for Chevrolet SUVs that’s conveyed with unmistakable brand heritage,” said Ken Parkinson, executive director of design.
Inside the two SUVs get a more upscale interior with premium materials and enhanced ergonomics. A new instrument panel houses an available eight-inch color touch screen radio with a secured storage bin behind the motorized screen. The compartmentalized center console is large enough to store a laptop or iPad.
The more refined theme was also applied under the skin, where the SUVs now have a quieter, more-controlled ride and improved steering and braking feel. The SUVs now have a stronger frame and a wider rear track that contributes to a more planted stance. LTZ models also get magnetic ride control, a real-time damping system that delivers more precise body motion control by “reading” the road every millisecond and changing damping in just five milliseconds.
Both the Tahoe and Suburban are powered by a 355-hp 5.3L V8 that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Both SUVs will arrive in showrooms in the first quarter of 2014.
