The attractive Chevrolet Tahoe returns with a bevy of new
features for the 2002 model year.
"Tahoe is always being refined, but always remains
true to its mission as a genuine sport utility vehicle,"
said Tahoe brand manager Steve Ramsey.
2002 Chevrolet Tahoe 2WD and 4WD models come
in two trim levels for 2002: LS and LT; the base trim has
A Z71 off-road package is available with body-color components
grille, bumper, door handles, roof rack (with integral
roller for easy loading) and mirror caps are new
for 2002. A tuned off-road suspension uses specific shock
absorbers and jounce jumpers with standard stabilizer bars.
A locking rear differential and P265/70R-17 on/off road
tires increase traction. Skid plates protect vital underbody
components, and OnStar provides added security.
All 2002 Chevrolet Tahoes (except Z71 model)
offer an optional third-row bench seat so Tahoe can carry
as many as nine passengers. The third-row rear seat features
a unique 50/50 split-fold design to provide a variety of
cargo- and passenger-carrying configurations. The seats
can be flipped forward and stowed for more cargo room, or
they can be individually and easily removed to provide a
flat load surface. The seats are light and easier to use
than anything on the market.
Electronic climate control available with sunroof and the
LS trim now includes comfortable six-way power driver and
passenger seats; electric rear-window defogger; rear heat
and HomeLink Universal transmitter. (Homelink enables programming
of three separate electronic home functions, such as garage
doors, gates and exterior house lights.)
LS trim includes heated, outside rearview mirrors
with self-dimming driver-side; side-mounted assist steps
and fog lamps.
2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LT models ordered in the Redfire Metallic
exterior color for 2002 will be equipped with body-color
components, including the front bumper, bodyside moldings
and wheel flares.
The LS model comes equipped with a 4.8-liter,
DOHC V8 with cast iron block that produces 275 hp. Available
as an option on the LS and standard on the LT is a 5.3-liter,
DOHC V8 with cast iron block capable of handling both regular
and 85 percent ethanol-content fuel while producing 285
All models continue to feature Tahoes dependable truck
chassis with a premium ride. Tahoe also offers its Autoride
system (LT only), which automatically controls shock damping
on a continuous, real-time basis to smooth bumps in the
road. Because Tahoe owners lead active lifestyles that sometimes
require a vehicle with extra traction, Tahoes Autotrac
four-wheel-drive system offers four drive modes plus neutral
to suit nearly any type of driving condition.
Safety and Security
Safety features include four-wheel antilock brakes,
standard on all models, and OnStar optional on LS,
standard on LT.
Tahoe for 2002 continues to offer adventurers the safety
and comfort they want without sacrificing Tahoes reputation
as an authentic full-size sport utility vehicle.
