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.

Available Models
2002 Chevrolet Tahoe 2WD and 4WD models come in two trim levels for 2002: LS and LT; the base trim has been discontinued.

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.

Interior Features
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.)

Exterior Features
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 hp.

All models continue to feature Tahoe’s 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, Tahoe’s 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 Tahoe’s reputation as an authentic full-size sport utility vehicle.
