Changes for the 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe:
In its final year before a complete redesign, the 2014 Tahoe gains standard features and a new premium paint color choice called Concord Metallic. The Tahoe Hybrid model has been dropped from the lineup.
Tahoe buyers choose from LS, LT, and LTZ trim levels. This year, the Tahoe LS has standard power adjustable pedals, remote engine starting, rear parking sensors, and a reversing camera.
Choose a Tahoe LT and the SUV is equipped with individual front bucket seats with a center console, which replaces the LS model’s front bench seat. Additionally, the LT trim level adds leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and improved stereo speakers. A set of fog lights helps to dress up the exterior, which retains the same undersized 17-inch aluminum wheels that come standard on the Tahoe LS.
Resolve the wheel/tire problem by getting the Tahoe LTZ, which has polished 20-inch rims as standard equipment. This model also gets perforated leather seats, ventilated front seats, heated individual rear bucket seats, and a heated steering wheel. A navigation system with a color touchscreen is also standard for the LTZ, along with a Bose premium surround sound audio system, a power rear liftgate, power folding side mirrors, and a Side Blind Zone Alert system.
Depending on the model selected, the Tahoe can be upgraded with nicer wheels, a power sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system, towing equipment, a Z71 Off-Road Package, and more.
Engines and Transmissions:
With the cancellation of the Tahoe Hybrid, all 2014 Tahoe models are equipped with a 5.3-liter V-8 engine good for 320 horsepower, 335 lb.-ft. of torque, and up to 8,500 pounds of towing capability. This engine is designed to operate on E85, and makes slightly more power on the alternative fuel.
A 6-speed automatic transmission with powertrain grade braking technology is standard, feeding power to the Tahoe’s rear wheels. A 4-wheel-drive system is optional.
Fuel Economy Ratings:
The Tahoe’s standard V-8 engine includes Active Fuel Management technology, which shuts off half of the engine’s cylinders under low-load driving conditions in order to conserve fuel. As a result, the EPA says the Tahoe will return 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, regardless of drivetrain selection.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2014 Tahoe receives an overall crash-test rating of 4 stars. The SUV’s rollover resistance rating measures 3 stars whether or not it is equipped with 4WD.
Every 2014 Chevy Tahoe includes OnStar telematics with Automatic Crash Response, Crisis Assist, and Emergency Services. The subscription is free for the first six months of ownership. Thereafter, owners can pay a monthly or annual subscription rate.
Automatic Crash Response leaps into action if the Tahoe’s airbags deploy. An OnStar service agent will attempt to reach the SUV’s occupants while at the same time dispatching emergency rescue personnel to the scene of the collision in order to speed assistance.
