Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Tahoe.

The Chevy Tahoe is the manufacturer's full-size sport utility vehicle, known for its blend of performance features and comfort appointments. And now it can also brag about being the top-selling full-size SUV in the U.S.

The 2004 Chevy Tahoe is not content to just sit back and rest on its laurels, however. New features for the upcoming model year include new Hydroboost brakes, a tire-pressure monitor, new wheels and tires, new colors and more. With all these upgrades, it looks like it will be another good year for the Chevy Tahoe.

Available Models
The 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe is offered in two trims: LS and LT.

Interior Features
The Chevy Tahoe is much like Chevrolet's other full-size sport utility vehicle, the Suburban. Though the Suburban is a bit larger, both are very roomy and extraordinarily powerful. The four-door Tahoe has three rows of seating and can handle up to nine passengers. It also has 104.6 cubic feet of interior cargo volume.

A tri-zone manual-control heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is standard on Tahoe, though customers can opt for an automatic system if they want. Either way, the 2004 Chevy Tahoe cools down and heats up in a hurry.

For options, you can't do much better than a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. If you have a large family and are planning a long, cross-country trek, this is the one option that is a virtual must-have.

Exterior Features
New wheels highlight the exterior changes for 2004. 16-inch cast aluminum wheels are available on LS and LT, while 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels with 16-inch steel blackwall spare are available on LT models. New tire selections include 17-inch all-season P265/70R17 blackwall tires and 17-inch all-season, P265/70R17 white outlined-letter tires.

Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations are both available with the 2004 Tahoe. LS models are fitted with a 4.8-liter Vortec V8 engine, able to generate 285 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. 4-speed automatic transmission is standard.

LT models feature a 5.3-liter Vortec V8 with 295 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 330 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm.

Off-roaders need only glance at the Z71 package before the salivation begins. It includes specially tuned off-road suspension, specific shock absorbers, jounce jumpers with standard stabilizer bars, a locking rear differential, four-wheel drive and P265/70R17 all-terrain tires.

Safety and Security
The 2004 Chevy Tahoe has a new right front passenger safety belt reminder. Advanced dual-stage airbags, a tire-pressure monitor, Hydroboost brakes and the LATCH child seat system are also standard.
