The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has been selected to be one of the few vehicles employed by police officers in a special all-new Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) and Special Service Vehicle (SSV) set to debut in 2020. Chevrolet has been able to provide law enforcement vehicles and the next-generation Tahoe is available in two law enforcement packages. The Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle was made for high speeds and dynamic capability with additional comfort needed from an everyday patrol vehicle. The Special Service Vehicle differs as it is more focused on off-road and towing abilities and high-speed operations are not needed.
“Tahoe is the most aspirational vehicle in the law enforcement industry. By listening to the needs of officers from around the country, we have built the best Tahoe ever,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet.
New Tahoe Pursuit Upgrades
The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV has undergone an all-new design. A big change comes in the form of its now class-leading interior space. The new Tahoe police-specific front seats provide additional hip room, ideal for officers’ utility belts to fit much more comfortably. 2021 Tahoe police vehicles offer 70.3 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second-row seat, which is 18.3 cubic feet more than the next largest pursuit-rated SUV competitor. Other brands have their own Pursuit vehicles, but they won’t provide as much space as the Tahoe. Rear door openings are now 13 percent (3.5 inches) wider than the previous generation to ease the loading of any handcuffed passengers.
Each of these 2021 Tahoe special editions, the PPV and SSV, have a 5.3-Liter V8 engine under the hood. The powertrain is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. To meet the most demanding needs of law enforcement, the PPV engine borrows high-performance rocker covers taken from the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LT4 engine. These rocker covers improve crankcase ventilation, allowing the 2021 Tahoe to handle high lateral conditions even better than its predecessor. Engine oil and transmission fluid are cooled by dedicated, heavy-duty cooling systems specific for law enforcement applications.
More Details on the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Pursuit
In order to be able to handle the amount of new Chevrolet Pursuit vehicles, Chevrolet partnered with Bridgestone to create a Pursuit-rated all-season tire. Each Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tire is mounted to a 20-inch steel wheel. These wheels and tires were tested by Chevrolet at numerous race tracks and play a role in the PPV’s improved stopping distance, which is tested from a speed of 62 mph to 0 mph on dry surfaces, this is actually better by 11 feet shorter than the 2020 model.
Further advances that help drivers of the Tahoe Pursuit include its all-new independent rear suspension, a longer wheelbase that helps handling and ride smoothness for all civilian and law enforcement drives, particularly in the event of off-road use on uneven terrain and unpaved surfaces. The exterior design is based on the new Tahoe Z71 trim, which features a rugged front grille, higher approach angle and front skid plate. Nice features like standard keyless entry and push-to-start ignition are great to aid in speeding up the process to get back on the road. The Tahoe PPV is offered in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, the SSV is exclusively four-wheel-drive. This is easily the best Chevrolet Tahoe Pursuit yet.
Original of the Tahoe
The first-ever Tahoe used by law enforcement was over 23 years ago in 1997, when the first Pursuit-Rated Package was introduced. General Motors organized an official Law Enforcement Product Council three years after its inception to learn directly from officers how they can better perform their duties in a Pursuit vehicle. The council is composed of ranking law enforcement officers and civilian fleet managers. The 2021 Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle and the Special Service Vehicle will be assembled at General Motors’ Arlington Assembly in Texas with globally-sourced parts in late 2020 and ready to ship in the beginning of 2021.

Everyday shoppers are ready to spend money on a shiny, new vehicle. Once a vehicle has been identified, customers are quick to research a vehicle they like before they finally decide on making the purchase. What is likely the most important aspect of choosing to opt for one vehicle over another is longevity. A recent study has been made public by iSeeCars.com and looked at vehicles that have 200,000 miles (remarkable longevity) and still run well. Guess what their research found? Two vehicles in their top ten included the Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe. Ready to learn more about the reasons? Let’s begin.
More On the Longevity Study
With over 13.8 million pre-owned vehicles leaving lots in 2018 alone, customers more than ever want a reliable quality vehicle. The study by iSeeCars.com focused on the model years 1981 through 2018 that have gone over 200,000 miles only. The percentage of vehicles that have reached that high mile count is five percent for the Chevrolet Suburban. The Chevrolet Suburban placed second on the list with the Chevrolet Tahoe placing sixth, as the Tahoe had 3.8 percent of these vehicles sold in 2018 with over 200,000 miles logged.
While the focus was on the number of miles, there was also a focus geographically. The longest-lasting vehicles in the top 25 most dense cities, which identified that in Detroit the Chevrolet Suburban made up 7.5 percent of all cars with over 200,000 miles. Not bad considering Detroit is known as the center of the U.S. automotive industry.
Why It’s Important For A Vehicle to Be Reliable Over the Long Term
Drivers don’t know when they purchase a vehicle when they might end up selling it. Sometimes they end up being owned a lot longer than expected. There are many reasons why owning a vehicle that can last as long as possible. After purchasing a house, a vehicle is the next most important investment a person can make. The vehicles that provide the longest reliability should be considered when making any decision. While all vehicles look and drive great when they are new, to own a vehicle that can hit 200,000 miles traveled on the odometer is the goal. Just for fun, iSeeCars.com said among the pre-owned vehicles sold in 2018, very few hit 300,000 miles. As expected, vehicles don’t last forever. However, 0.2 percent of the Chevrolet Suburban hit that mark.
Both the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2019 Chevrolet Suburban have up to seating for eight. These SUVs are large and luxurious, but also quite modern with tons of amenities that help drivers and passengers alike to embrace each drive. America’s best-selling full-size SUV in the Chevrolet Tahoe and the remarkable fuel-efficient of the Suburban, a vehicle with a V8 engine at 22 highway, both offer plenty to love.
