Chevrolet has done a nice job of holding down the entry points for the next-gen 2015 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, both of which see increases of less than 1 percent for the new selling season. Each gets a bump of $295, to be exact, with the new Tahoe opening at $44,895 (+.7 percent) and the redesigned Suburban starting from $47,595 (+.6 percent). Destination charges remain unchanged at $995, although Chevy has begun including those fees in its advertised MSRPs for some of its newer products, so shoppers should be sure they're comparing apples with apples.
Of course, as long as we're on that topic, it's also worth noting that a comparison of the higher trim levels of the 2015 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban shows some much bigger increases, although that is because those more premium models come with significantly more standard equipment than their predecessors. For example, as compared to last year's Tahoe LT mid-grade model, the 2015 Chevy Tahoe LT adds the Chevrolet MyLink connectivity system with an 8-inch color touchscreen, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, a programmable power rear liftgate, and nicer seating; it's just that the 2015 Chevy Tahoe LT happens to cost $2,360 more than its 2014 counterpart, with an MSRP of $50,000. The cost of a new Suburban LT, gaining the same new goodies, advances $2,985.
The range-topping models also welcome more standard equipment in the 2015 Chevy Tahoe LTZ ($59,000; +$2,745) and Suburban LTZ ($61,700; +$3,300), including:
- Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Assist
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Front Park Assist
- High-intensity discharge headlamps
- LED daytime running lights
- Keyless entry with push-button start
- Memory steering column
- Power-releasing second-row seats
- Power-folding third-row seats
Also, the price of Chevrolet's all-wheel-drive system is unchanged for both the 2015 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, at $3,000.
