    Chevrolet Tahoe Takes Top Honor Latest J.D. Power Study
    Chevrolet Tahoe Takes Top Honor Latest J.D. Power Study

    The latest J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study are available. GM vehicles won the respective segment in this study among their rivals. Chevy's quality is recognized where it matters the most - among the customers.

    Chevy Tahoe won 9 percent above the large crossover/SUV segment which is leaded by the Cadillac Escalade. FYI Escalade won this award second time in a row despite of the age of this model. The second place in the segment went to GMC Yukon, the third to the Suburban.

    “We believe the latest J.D. Power results reflect Chevrolet’s commitment to deliver high-quality cars our customers can depend on,” said Rick Scheidt, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “We are working hard to make all Chevrolet models the highest-performing in their segments.”

    In the midsized sport car segment Chevy Camaro took second place. Among large SUVs Avalanche took the third place.

    The recent inquiry is based on the responses of more than 73,000 purchasers and based on the 2011 model owned for 90 days. The inquiry includes 228 questions that provide the manufacturer with all the information needed concerning a specific model.

    The Chevy Tahoe offers plenty of space to accommodate up to 9 occupants. The towing capacity and the mileage: 15 mpg / city, 21 mpg /highway, make other large trucks and SUVs envy. When comparing large SUVs its clearly seen that the Tahoe gives them a head start. Its inviting interior gives premium level comfort for the occupants. When you get into the Tahoe you immediately notice the perfect blending of functionality and design. The 2011 Chevy Tahoe was rated the Best Full Size SUV.

    The Tahoe has various security systems that protect its occupants from any types of collisions. They include: a steel safety cage, six air bags, OnStar with automatic crash response, four-wheel ABS and others. The most interesting fact is that the Tahoe is surprisingly light on its feet for a large SUV. Easy handling makes it possible to tow a boat or any other load without extra efforts. As many other large SUVs, Tahoe has a third row seat, though it would not be very comfortable for tall adults. To increase the cargo space you need to remove third row seats though it is not very easy.

    It is pretty hard to imagine modern life without the Internet. People can surf the Web at home, on the go, and now, in a passenger car. Up until recently the Internet on four wheels was only available via cell phones and cellular modems. Now, however, Chevrolet has taken a leap into modernity announcing new technology to turn its respected models into rolling WiFi hotspots.

    Chevy is offering the dealer-installed Wi-Fi service for seven models, including the Chevy Tahoe. The on-board system will provide a 3G network connection of up to 1.5 mbps, allowing passengers to surf the Internet freely both inside and outside the car (within 150 feet). The system can support several devices simultaneously and with additional docking stations, the router can be moved from vehicle to vehicle.

    Until the end of the year, the Wi-Fi service is available as an option for $199. It's interesting, and somewhat weird, that unlike the Tahoe and 6 other Chevy models, Chevrolet's most technologically-advanced vehicle, the Volt, will not get the Wi-Fi option.
