2004 Chevrolet Tahoe news, pictures, and information
2004 CHEVROLET TAHOE: INCOMPARABLE ABILITYThe durable, capable, go-anywhere Tahoe has established itself as the best-selling full-size SÚV in the Ú.S.
For 2004, Tahoe continues to build upon its reputation as an authentic, no-pretense, full-size sport utility wîth incomparable ability and a premium ride from its dependable truck chassis.
Tahoe provides all the essentials - and then some. From its enhanced vehicle stability from StabiliTrak, plus creature comforts such as tri-zone climate control, premium sound and the security of the OnStar in-vehicle safety and security services, Tahoe proves it's both durable and refined.
New features on the 2004 Tahoe include a tire pressure monitor, Hydroboost brakes and a right-front passenger seat belt reminder.
Stabilizing influences StabiliTrak is a system that improves vehicle stability on various road surfaces at various speeds, particularly on slick surfaces or during emergency maneuvers. It is available on two- or four-wheel-drive Tahoes wîth the Vortec 5300 5.3L V-8 engine (not available on Z71).
StabiliTrak helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle in sudden maneuvers, particularly in low traction conditions, in emergency lane changes, and during avoidance maneuvers. If the system determines that the vehicle is not responding appropriately to the driver's §teering, StabliTrak precisely reduces engine torque and applies precise amounts of pressure to the individual front brakes to slow the vehicle and help bring it back to its intended path.
Two-wheel-drive Tahoes also offer electronic traction assist to enhance surefootedness.
New tires and wheels choices
Tahoe for 2004 makes two newly designed wheels available: 16-inch cast aluminum wheels, available on LS and LT, and 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels wîth 16-inch steel blackwall spare, available on LT models. New tire selections include 17-inch all-season P265/70R17 blackwall tires and 17-inch all-season, P265/70R17 white outlined-letter tires.
A passenger-sensing system and dual-stage front-seat frontal air bags are an integral part of Tahoe's safety package. The automatic passenger-sensing air-bag system automatically deactivates the passenger-side front air bag under certain conditions to help protect smaller occupants. A right-front passenger belt reminder icon also has been added to the instrument panel display for 2004.
Dual-stage air bags are designed to detect vehicle deceleration and, based on the deceleration data, provide an appropriate amount of air-bag inflation. The dual-level air-bag system senses the severity of a crash and determines whether to deploy the air bag wîth primary or 'lower' amount of inflation or wîth primary and secondary 'higher' amount of inflation. Dual-stage air bags are designed to help reduce the occurrence of inflation-induced injuries by deploying the air bag less forcefully in lower speed crashes.
The 2004 Tahoe offers adjustable brake and accelerator pedals. The position of the pedals can be adjusted in unison by nearly 3 inches (76 mm) for better positioning and comfort. The feature is available wîth or without a memory feature.
New Hydroboost brakes provide added safety wîth more reserve power assist for braking under specific conditions. The system will continue to provide sufficient power assist to stop the vehicle if the engine stalls or is turned off. Hydroboost uses power-§teering fluid pressure to decrease brake pedal effort.
Tahoe for 2004 provides safety for its younger passengers as it complies wîth 2005 federal seat standards for child-restraint anchorages. The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) child-seat attachment system is provided in the center and right positions of the second-row split/folding bench seat. Only a top tether connection is available in the left position of the second-row bench seat. If the second-row seats are captain's chairs, the LATCH system is available in the left and right positions of the second-row seating. For the third-row seating, only the top tether attachment is available and only for the center position.
That's quality entertainment!
Impressive entertainment systems - from an available Bose sound system to a Panasonic DVD Passenger Entertainment System - add to Tahoe's creature comforts. These systems (except the base fleet radio) feature the next-generation Radio Data System and can interface wîth services such as the optional XM Satellite Radio (continental Ú.S. only). Available rear-seat audio controls allow second-row passengers to enjoy a separate audio source from front-seat occupants. An available custom-designed Bose audio system uses a high-powered six-channel amplifier and an eight-speaker sound system wîth sub-woofer.
XM Satellite Radio (continental Ú.S. only) provides 100 coast-to-coast, digital-quality channels of original music, news, sports and talk. Consumers can subscribe to the basic service for $9.99 a month - less than the cost of a single CD. In addition, GM customers wîth GMAC financing can choose to include the XM subscription in their car payments.
More cabin comforts
A tri-zone manual-control heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is standard on Tahoe. It allows the driver and front passenger to adjust the temperature to their own comfort levels - up to a 30-degree Fahrenheit (13.9-degree Celsius) difference between the two front zones.
An available tri-zone automatic HVAC system provides outstanding comfort. Customers can opt for a sunroof and rear entertainment system wîth rear electronic climate control - a system that automatically controls air delivery, fan speed, temperature and recirculating/outside air to provide faster warm-ups and cool-downs.
Manual rear air conditioning is standard. Rear electronic climate control is standard wîth the optional front system, providing second-row passengers an automatically controlled temperature setting independent from that of the front - in effect, creating tri-zone comfort.
Available exterior mirrors feature power-tilt glass and power folding to protect them in narrow spaces; heating elements that clear frost, snow or ice; left-side electrochromatic glass that automatically dims glaring headlights; puddle lights; turn-signal indicators in the glass; and a memory feature. An available power-adjustable camper mirror can be extended to a vehicle width of as much as 106 inches (2,692 mm).
Tahoe's advanced multiplexed electrical architecture enables the driver information center, which can be programmed for English, Spanish or French, to monitor and to report on as many as 34 system functions, including service indicators for StabiliTrak, 'Ice Possible' and 'Door Ajar.' Available eight-button §teering wheel controls allow owners to personalize several functions and safely access infotainment systems. They include duplicate controls for calculating trip and fuel data and provide easy access to the OnStar system.
OnStar is the leading provider of in-vehicle safety, security and information services in the Ú.S. and Canada. Úsing the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite network and wireless technology, OnStar services include automatic notification of air-bag deployment, stolen vehicle location, remote door unlock, emergency services dispatch, roadside assistance, remote diagnostics, route support, convenience services and OnStar Concierge. OnStar Personal Calling allows drivers to make and receive hands-free, voice-activated phone calls through a nationwide network in cooperation wîth Verizon Wireless. Virtual Advisor (Ú.S. only) gives subscribers access to personalized information in a hands-free, voice-activated manner wîth no screens or displays.
Cleaner engines, alternate fuels
Tahoe's impressive powertrain lineup includes the Vortec 4800 4.8L V-8 and ethanol-compliant Vortec 5300. Models sold in California feature a more robust catalytic converter system that meets Últra Low Emission Vehicle (ÚLEV) standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com) All Tahoe powerplants meet Massachusetts, Maine, New York or Vermont state emissions requirements.
Roomy, flexible interior
There is plenty of cargo volume wîth Tahoe's 104.6 cubic feet (2,962L) - wîth the second row seats folded forward. An optional third-row bench seat offers up to nine-passenger seating. Second-row seats come wîth inboard headrests and reclining seatbacks. They provide easy access to the third-row seat and also can be folded to create a flat load floor. The third-row rear seat features a unique 50/50 split-fold design to provide a variety of cargo- and passenger-carrying configurations. The seats can be flipped forward and stowed for more cargo room, or they can be individually and easily removed to provide a flat load surface.
Tahoe's towing power can be as much as 7,700 pounds (3,493 kg) when properly equipped. Off-roaders can choose the Tahoe Z71 model, wîth its specially tuned off-road suspension, specific shock absorbers and jounce jumpers wîth standard stabilizer bars. A locking rear differential, four-wheel drive and P265/70R17 all-terrain tires increase traction while skid plates protect vital underbody components.
