The Chevy Tahoe: Nothing To Shake A Finger At

A maroon 2019 Chevy Tahoe is driving away from a city at sunrise.

 

Chevrolet is revealing itself as the new big bad wolf with the release of the 2019 Chevy Tahoe, positioning itself as an upper-echelon contender in the heavyweight ring. The Tahoe does not compromise, but there is nothing “unnecessary” included. The Tahoe has plenty of power and drive options, more than enough cargo space, and there is no shortage of optional accessories. Suitable for any environment, you can expect the 2019 Chevy Tahoe to turn heads no matter where you are. The Tahoe is not the cheapest vehicle on the market, but the utility and value will help this vehicle stand the test of time.

There are few qualities that all Tahoe and future Tahoe owners have in common. All of them are looking to be able to cruise in the passing lane without feeling like the engine is struggling. They want a lot of steel protecting the people inside the vehicle. Some people want the utility, while many like the authority that the Tahoe produces. No matter the reason, this legend of a vehicle will have no problem providing owners with value for the next one-hundred thousand plus miles.

The Position You Take

A good majority of people are interested in the 2019 Chevy Tahoe because of its physical capabilities. Undoubtedly the first thing that everyone notices about the Tahoe is its size. With a wheelbase of 116.0 inches and a height over six feet tall. With its size, the Tahoe turns heads as soon as anyone catches a glimpse of it in the corner of their eye. This giant has a strong heart in its chest as well. Standard, the Tahoe comes equipped with a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine. An engine of this magnitude will more than exceed any expectations while driving on public roads. The average Tahoe will come in two-wheel drive, but there are plenty in the market that come equipped with four-wheel drive if you need the utility. The physical prowess of the Tahoe is nothing to shake a finger at.

The Tahoe isn’t just a beast from the outside, step inside and you’ll retreat to an oasis of comfort and luxury. Premium cloth seats and three rows of seating are just some of the luxuries you’ll enjoy as an owner. With even 24.8” of legroom in the third row, you’ll have no problem getting nine adults to their destination without complaint. Cargo room isn’t the only trick up the Tahoe’s sleeve. Tri-zone climate control will keep all of your passengers comfortable, a whopping 8-inch infotainment screen will display all of your information, and cruise control with steering wheel controls are just the tip of the iceberg that makes the Tahoe an absolute beast, inside and out.

Get More Out Of Your Vehicle

There is a reason that Edmunds has given the Tahoe the “Buyers Most Wanted” award for the past two years in a row. Chevy didn’t make this vehicle just so that you could commute to work in it. Chevy designed this SUV from the ground up to withstand long adventures with the whole family. If you’re shopping for a Tahoe, chances are you’ve got a need for all of that space. As previously mentioned, you can get eight to nine adults in this vehicle no problem. With over seven and a half inches of ground clearance, the dirt roads that take you to campsites and secluded places will hardly phase Chevrolet’s offering. If you live in an area with less than ideal driving conditions, you’ll have no problem finding a four-wheel variant of your favorite Tahoe trim level. Get where you want to go, in any driving conditions, comfortably.

If you’ve never owned a vehicle that was larger than a sedan or small SUV, you’ll find that there is a lot to like about the Tahoe. The first thing you’ll notice when considering ownership is the tall seat height that comes with a full-sized SUV. You’ll feel safer and be able to see further to boot! Even if you don’t plan on having passengers taking up space in your car, having the extra room can be a godsend when it comes time to move or purchase new furniture. Would you rather need the utility and not have it? Or have the utility and not need it?

What Are You Waiting For?

The Tahoe began its life back in 1995, a few years after the GMC Yukon was rebadged from the GMC Jimmy in 1991. The Tahoe had replaced the full-size Blazer as the GMC Yukon’s counterpart, bringing forth the Tahoe as its own entity. With over twenty years of production, the Tahoe has proven to be consumer favorite and one that can stand the test of time. While there are no indications that the Tahoe will stop production soon, there is no time like the present to get behind the wheel and start enjoying Chevrolet’s offering. Once you invest in the Tahoe, you know longer have to worry about the “What if…”’s that come with the open road. If you have a need, or simply a desire, to reach your destination regardless of what obstacles lie in your path, then purchase a Tahoe and never worry about looking back.

Undoubtedly, the largest roadblock that consumers face when shopping for a Tahoe is, unfortunately, the price. Starting at just shy of the fifty-grand mark, there are no “budget” or “commuter” variants of the Tahoe.  Any well-maintained vehicle can provide the consumer with at least a decade of reliable use, but a vehicle like the Tahoe will go that distance while towing boats and climbing mountains. Consumers that walk into a dealership worried about price will certainly find a better value for their situation in a smaller SUV. Those consumers that walk into a dealership knowing that they have work to be done and/or family to keep safe will be willing to pay the extra expense to have their needs met. A car is to an individual what the Tahoe is to a business. The Tahoe is a wonderful vehicle that will provide you with a return on your investment one way or another.

Chevy Crushed Their Target Market

Chevrolet has refined the target market of their Tahoe into, what I consider, two major markets. Those with large families and those with work to be done. For the large family, the Tahoe is a great way to spoil your loved ones and provide them with reliable transportation for years to come. Everyone in the family should be able to fit, even your two dogs and uncle Steve. Contractors and businesses, however, need to be a little more calculated with their purchase. While there would be nothing wrong with a business purchasing a vehicle outright, it is important for a business to consider the best possible return on investment. When you can borrow money for less than 5% interest, most businesses opt for a loan so that they can put their capital to work elsewhere. Between financing available, depreciation and other tax benefits, the price tag of the Tahoe becomes very attractive to contractors and businesses alike. No vehicle provides the comfort, utility, and features like the Chevy Tahoe does. So, why isn’t there one in your garage yet?
