Chevrolet Tahoe turned into a police interceptor

Chevrolet prepared two factory special versions of Tahoe: the SUV was turned into a police interceptor, prepared to prosecute criminals, and a tractor capable of transporting trailers weighing up to 3.7 tons. Both modifications will appear on US roads this year.

The police interceptor, aka Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV), received a modified suspension, new shock absorbers and Brembo brakes with 406 mm discs.

Such an SUV differs from the standard model in reduced ground clearance, due to which it is more stable during high-speed maneuvering.

In addition, the police officer Tahoe received special Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tires, which allowed to significantly reduce the braking distance. The Tahoe tractor, in turn, was equipped with a trailer hitch and prepared for the installation of police special equipment.

Both factory special versions are equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 engine with a capacity of 360 horsepower paired with a ten-band automatic transmission. For Tahoe PPV, rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive is provided, and for the tractor only four-wheel drive.
