Here is the entry-level Chevrolet Tahoe!
Tiny wheels on a massive car
Once, I went on the configurator of an American brand. My curiosity led me to Chevrolet where, after entering a fake zip code, I configured the new Tahoe, a large SUV that is very popular in the United States. Let's see if the entry-level LS version of this imposing baby still looks good.
The overall result is satisfactory. Although it abandons much of its chrome, the grille doesn't fall into the utilitarian aspect of an Express, for example. In profile, the SUV keeps a chrome trim ring underlining the glass and features body-coloured door handles.

By far the most shocking thing about this mammoth is the 18-inch wheels, which look tiny on this huge vehicle! The rear end is almost identical to the other versions. The interior features a 10.2-inch touch screen without GPS. The analogue instrument cluster features a monochromatic on-board computer.
As for equipment, the front parking sensor is optional, which is a bit stingy for a vehicle of this size. Lane Departure Warning coupled with Lane Keeping Assist is also on the list of extras. Adaptive cruise control is unavailable, as is the power tailgate.
Under the hood, the Tahoe LS is fortunately very generous, with a 5.3-litre V8 producing 355 hp and 519 Nm of torque. It is mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission. The Chevrolet Tahoe LS is available in the U.S. from $50,295 (€41,400/£35,660).
