Overview

What's New
The 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe has undergone a complete makeover and features a new exterior, more power, better fuel economy, a roomier, more refined interior, and improved quietness. It is built on GM's new full-size SUV platform, which has wider front and rear tracks and incorporates a stiffer frame, better suspension, and improved steering.

Overview
Although the Chevy Tahoe has been the best-selling full-size SUV since 2001, the extremely competitive market demands constant improvement. So for 2007, the Tahoe has undergone extensive modifications. Included is an all-new interior design with attractive faux wood trimmings, more supple plastics, and a host of options like heated front and second-row seats and roof-mounted curtain side air bags. Fit and finish has also improved compared to the previous model.

Chevrolet touts the new Tahoe as delivering better fuel economy than any other full-size SUV. A new Gen IV small-block V-8 family that includes cylinder deactivation and the ability to operate on an ethanol fuel mix is part of the reason. However, it's also due in part to the Tahoe's "more slippery" exterior shape, which involves improved aerodynamics, streamlined exterior mirrors and roof rack, and tighter body-gap tolerances. These features also make the Tahoe quieter as it cuts through the air. In fact, a great deal of attention was given to making the new Tahoe considerably quieter than its predecessor. Everything from spraying foam into cavities to a new vibration-reducing frame, an acoustically tuned engine cover to tire selection, contributes to a quieter ride.

The 2007 Tahoe comes in three trim levels: LS, LT, and LTZ. The high-volume LT trim level offers LT-1, LT-2 and LT-3 equipment groups. Two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive (4WD) models are available. Later in the year, a Z71 Off-Road Package with a platinum chrome skid plate, larger tow hook openings, 18-inch wheels, and unique trimmings will be offered as an option on 4WD models. According to Chevrolet, the Tahoe's maximum towing capacity is an impressive 8,200 pounds when properly equipped.

The Competition
The Chevrolet Tahoe competes in the Large Utility segment, which consists of eight models. Buyers in this segment look for comfort, performance, and exterior styling, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2006 Avoider StudySM and the Escaped Shopper Study.SM

Power and Associates Sales Report,SM were the Chevrolet Tahoe (161,491 units sold), Ford Expedition (78,953), and Chevrolet Suburban (77,211). The Chevrolet Tahoe's 161,491 sales in 2006 represent an increase of 6.0 percent compared to the previous year. Other models offered in the Large Utility segment include the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, Toyota Sequoia, and Nissan Armada. Joining the segment in 2007 is the Ford Expedition EL.
