Who doesn't love a truck in uniform?
Aside from criminals, that is.
Chevy has introduced the 2015 Tahoe PPV, the law enforcement version of its upcoming all-new SUV.
Dressed for patrol and emergency response duty, the Tahoe PPV rides on steel wheels, stops with heavy-duty brakes and is fitted with an electrical system pre-wired for police gear, which can be transferred from the previous generation Tahoe without modification.
Rear-wheel and four-wheel-drive versions are available, both powered by a 5.3-liter V8 matched to a six-speed automatic transmission calibrated for police pursuit.
The Tahoe PPV also comes standard with GM’s OnStar telematics system, which can be used to disable the vehicle if it is stolen and locate it for recovery.
If any law enforcement officers find themselves in that kind of situation, they may want to use OnStar’s navigation system to find the fastest way out of town, too.
