Used Chevy Tahoes in Oklahoma from 2007-2010
It was in 2007 that the latest generation of used Chevy Tahoes in Oklahoma
made their debut, offering three different trim levels: LTZ,LT and LS. There were also two V8s buyers might choose from: a 320 hp 5.3-liter and a 295 hp 4.8-liter, both matched with a four speed automatic transmission. A 6.2-liter V8 was made available in 2009 featuring 395 hp. Also that year made available was a six speed automatic fitted to the 6.2 and 5.3 V8s. There were no front side airbags made available until 2010.
Review of Used Chevy Tahoes in Oklahoma 1999-2008
Prior to 2008 side curtain airbags were optional or standard depending upon the trim selected but stability control was standard. In 2009, the third-row seat which had been an option then became standard on all Tahoes. In addition, the six speed automatic transmission became on the bigger engines standard. This Tahoe also became notable for big improvements in build quality, materials used and interior design.
Those people with an interest in used Chevy Tahoes in Oklahoma will want to be certain they see the second-generation model built for the model years 2000-2006. At that time most experts looked at the Tahoe as one of the premier SUVs anyone could get. In the years between 2000 and 2004, General Motors' Chevy Tahoe as well as the Suburban and the Yukon were either rated number one or number two in the Edmunds.com Most Wanted awards.
Even though it was slightly smaller than the third, you will notice that second generation used Chevy Tahoes in Oklahoma had room for up to nine passengers. There were two V8 engines one could get-the 295-hp5.3-liter or the 285-hp 4.8-liter as well as 4WD or 2WD. For the majority of its history the model came in LT,Z71 and LS trims. The Z71 was made for off-road performance to be greatly improved. On the positive side the experts were well impressed by the maneuverability of the truck as well as the V8 engine's power. On the down side they were not pleased by the spotty build quality and the cheap interior materials. Those people seriously concerned with safety will want to be seeking out used Chevy Tahoes in Oklahoma that have the stability control system offered as an option. That option was introduced on trucks with larger V8s in 2003.
The first generation Tahoes made from 1995-1999 carried six passengers maximum, a lot of cargo and their most popular feature was they fit well in most garages. Only this generation offered both four door and two door models. The bottom line is that those seeking used Chevy Tahoes in Oklahoma are going to have a number of excellent alternatives to consider.
