The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is ready for duty with the debut of two special law enforcement packages: the Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle and Tahoe Special Service Vehicle.
Both PPV and SSV models are powered by a 5.3-liter V8 that’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. To improve crankcase ventilation, the PPV engine borrows high-performance rocker covers from the Camaro ZL1 LT4 engine.
The PPV also gets unique suspension tuning with unique monotube dampers, coil springs and stabilizer bars to reduce body roll. The ride height has also been lowered compared to the regular Tahoe to improve high-speed aerodynamics and stability.
The stopping distance of the PPV has also been reduced by 11 feet from 62 to 0 mph thanks to Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tires that wrap 20-inch steel wheels. A Brembo braking system has also been added with six-piston aluminum monoblock calipers on 16-inch rotors.
To help the officers stay connected there’s an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot. The standard HD Rear Vision Camera and Rear Park Assist also help the officers prevent collisions when backing up. The cool Rear Camera Mirror that replaces the traditional rearview mirror is also available.
The 2021 Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle and the Special Service Vehicle will be available later this year.
