Chevrolet has released some interesting details on the new 2015 Tahoe Police Patrol Vehicle, which will soon join other police vehicles.
After officially pulling the wraps off its body, during the 2013 SEMA Motor Show, in Las Vegas, and then announcing several units which will be used by the police, the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Police Patrol Vehicle is being placed into the spotlights once more, this time with the company announcing some details on the model. According to Chevy, the new Tahoe PPV will join the police duty in three units, one of them being a two-wheel drive semi-pursuit vehicle, a “special service” Tahoe municipal vehicle, a hybrid, aimed towards localities where hybrids are mandated, and a four-wheel drive Tahoe, which will be used for non-pursuit operations and on off-road.
The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe PPV is getting heavy-duty disc brakes at each wheel, the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control, an auxiliary battery, powering the radios, radar guns, laptops and so on without draining the main battery, additional space in the rear seat providing more legroom and easier access to individuals and much more. Power is being provided by a 5.3 liter EcoTec3 V8 direct injected engine, which is producing a total output of 355 HP and 383 lb-ft of torque. The unit is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, specially calibrate for police-pursuit work.
