Powering the Chevrolet Tahoe
All 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe models come with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that generates 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission transmits power through the rear wheels on 2WD models or all four wheels on 4WD models. The Tahoe's Traction Control feature makes use of sensors to detect when any wheel loses traction, and will alter the vehicle's power and handling accordingly to help with maintaining control. If bad roads cause a loss of control when driving, an Electronic Stability Control system will activate and work with the Tahoe's brakes to guard against over or understeering. Like the one that came before, the 2015 Chevy Tahoe is big: 17 feet long and 6.7 feet wide. Its sheer bulk might be intimidating if you've never been behind the wheel of a large SUV, but it's relatively easy to drive. The suspension uses an independent design in front and a solid rear axle. Uneven pavement makes the Tahoe bounce a bit, but overall ride composure is good, with none of the unappealing pitching motions you find in some other SUVs.
