GM to Offer 2015 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban Z71 Packages | All American Chevrolet of Slaton | Slaton TX
The Detroit-based automaker this week announced the off-road package for the all-new sport utility vehicles, which went on sale earlier this year. GM also released a teaser of the Z71 badge on one of the vehicles.
GM said additional features and production timing will be announced in late-September.
The first official special Z71 package appeared on Chevy's full-size pickup trucks in 1988, and in 2001, the brand added the Z71 package to Tahoe and Suburban.
The full-size SUV segment, although smaller than its peak in the late-1990s and early-2000s, is critical for GM. Since 1975, the automaker has consistently represented more than 40 percent of the full-size SUV market, including an 80 percent stake in 1995.
