With more onboard technology going inside the vehicle, law enforcement agencies and emergency support operators are finding the need for more space without compromising performance. This is why many law enforcement agencies are increasingly replacing older-model squad sedans with SUVs.2
That's where the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe PPV comes in. With unmatched interior space over its competitors, the Tahoe PPV offers comfort while still giving officers the performance required while in pursuit. The performance is delivered from an EcoTec3® 5.3L V8 engine that packs 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque.
For safety, the Tahoe has received the highest Government Front Crash and Side Crash safety ratings — 5-stars.3 Standard safety features include a Rear Vision Camera and rear parking assist, and the StabiliTrak® stability enhancement system with Proactive Roll Avoidance.1
Along with the need for performance and safety, every agency also has a budget to follow that can make fleet expenses a challenge. With the Tahoe PPV, Active Fuel Management® helps improve fuel economy by turning cylinders off when full performance isn't needed. This can help agencies recoup some of the lost fuel dollars when officers sit idle. The fuel management system also includes variable valve timing and direct injection — all of which bring the EPA-estimated fuel economy to 23 mpg highway and 16 mpg city on the 2WD model.
As more onboard technology is being placed in pursuit vehicles, emergency support vehicles are also finding similar requirements in needing additional space without negatively affecting performance. The Chevrolet Silverado SSV offers segment-leading head and front seat leg room, as well as an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22 mpg highway on the 4WD models.
Plus, the standard auxiliary battery and upfitter connections make it easy to get the vehicle upfitted and ready to roll out as an active fleet unit. While many agencies add more and more advanced technology inside the cab, the high-output alternator also helps provide the energy needed to power today's onboard equipment.
