Chevrolet recently announced that it would be releasing an all-new Police Pursuit Vehicle in addition to a Special Service Vehicle later this year. One of these vehicles will be a 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe with law enforcement capabilities, including high-speed performance and a reliable design. This SUV is perfect for the demanding needs of law enforcement.
The Tahoe will be offered as a Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV), which has high-speed and dynamic capabilities. For instance, it will have a 5.3-liter V8 engine and a ten-speed transmission. The engine is tuned with parts from the Camaro ZL1 LT4 engine, and it has increased crankcase ventilation. There are also heavy-duty cooling systems and special Bridgestone tires.
“Tahoe models have been serving law enforcement since 1997 when the first Pursuit-Rated Package was introduced. Over the years, Chevrolet has continued to listen to officers and add new features and options with their needs in mind,” reads the Chevrolet press release.
There’s also a Special Service Vehicle (SSV), which is perfect for rugged terrain or slippery surfaces. This model has standard 4WD, Terrain Management, and a maximum trailering package to provide an impressive 8,200 pounds in towing capacity. Plus, drivers will also find a two-speed Autotrac transfer case and an integrated trailer brake controller that make towing and hauling simpler.
You don’t need to be a police officer to take advantage of most of the Tahoe PPV’s features. Just check out the Tahoe SUV at Greenbrier Chevrolet Buick!
