DUBAI – The safest crash is the one that never happens. All-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, one of the most popular nameplate among Middle East families, offers an array of the state-of-art safety technologies to ensure the 360 degrees of crash avoidance and occupant protection.
Standard and available features include forward collision alert, front park assist, lane departure warning, lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert and adaptive cruise control. GM-patented available Safety Alert Seat vibrates if the system determines the driver is at risk of colliding with another vehicle.
The Tahoe also offers the segment’s only front-seat center air bag, in bucket-seat models, which is engineered to provide additional protection for drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes.
In addition, the all-new Tahoe has more high-strength steel in its frame, providing customers with greater protection in a crash.
In case of a collision, post-crash functions assist occupants and first responders, which include automatic fuel system shutoff and door unlock; and automatic illumination of interior and flashing hazard lights.
From a security standpoint, the 2015 Tahoe offers a new level of security.
Thwarting theft was a design focus of Chevrolet’s full-size SUVs. New standard features include a steering column lock that deters push-away and tow-away theft – a significant portion of today’s stolen vehicle incidents; side cut keys that deter lock picking and more robust door lock cylinders and shields to prevent access with slim jims and other tools.
Creative and hidden storage behind the available 8-inch infotainment screen on the center stack is large enough to hold valuables like a wallet and smartphone. Customers are able to lock or access it with a four-digit code through the “valet mode” menu in the Chevrolet MyLink system. A confirmation entry of the code simultaneously locks the bin and secures personal information.
“Safety and security are our customers top purchase considerations,” said Mark Clawson, Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban marketing manager. “With all new standard and available safety and security features, we’re able to provide 360 degrees of crash avoidance, occupant protection and greater theft protection.”
The all-new 2015 Tahoe will reach Middle East showrooms in August. It will be available in three trim levels – LS, LT and LTZ, with a choice of 2WD and 4WD.
