2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Features in Shreveport and Monroe

15tahoe

The completely redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is now available at Red River Chevrolet, and this SUV is amazing!  The full-size Tahoe SUV remains V8 powered to handle everything from the trails, to the highway, to towing and everything in between.

Just by looking at the new Chevy Tahoe, differences from the previous body style are apparent.  The exterior lines on the body are sculpted for a contemporary design with uniquely shaped headlamps, chrome grille, and an aerodynamic spoiler.  The interior has some of the most drastic changes however.  Technology is in no short supply with this SUV.  A full-color Driver Information Screen is located in the middle of the instrument cluster offering the driver several difference pieces of information and control metrics for things such as the entertainment, phone, and navigation.  Connecting your phone has never been easier thanks to the latest generation MyLink infotainment system.  The Tahoe offers up to Six USB ports and up to twelve charging locations for those portable devices.

 

More technology resides in the safety features in this Luxury SUV.  Some of these technologies include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Cross-Traffic Alert, Vibration alerts in the seat, and of course – OnStar technology!

Colors available on the 2015 Tahoe include Black, Summit White, Silver Ice Metallic, Champagne Silver Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Sable Metallic, White Diamond Tricoat, and Crystal Red Tintcoat.

The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is now available at Red River Chevrolet in Bossier City, LA.  Come see it at 221 Traffic Street next to the Horseshoe Casino.  We are your local Chevrolet dealership in Lousiana!  Check out our walk around videos of the 2015 Chevy Tahoe below.  Visit us online at www.RedRiverChevy.com or give us a call at 1-800-256-7890 (318.549.7500).

OnStar4G-LTE

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Chevrolet has announced that along with OnStar they are teaming up with AT&T to offer 4G LTE connectivity to the 2015 Corvette, Impala, Malibu and Volt as an extra option.  The price has not yet been revealed.  Also, the Equinox, Silverado, Silverado HD, Spark and EV Spark will have the option as well at a later date.  Although not stated, It is also likely that the Traverse, Cruze, Sonic and Camaro will have the option added soon.

AT&T will allow current customers to add their vehicle to a  sharable bucket of data through AT&T’s Mobile Share plans, while other drivers can simply pay for data as a standalone option.  Additional pricing and data packages for OnStar 4G LTE will be announced later this year.

Along with these fast speeds, Chevrolet has also announced that the MyLink infotainment system will be enhanced with a built-in AppShop which will be available for select 2015 Chevrolet Models in the U.S.  AppShop will utilize the available internet connection and allow users to search through all available apps and then download them directly to the vehicle.  Available apps will connect drivers to vehicle data, music, news, weather, travel information, and much more.  Some of the announced apps includes Vehicle Health, iHeartRadio, Priceline.com, The Weather Channel, NPR, Slacker Radio, TuneIn Radio, Cityseeker, Eventseeker, Glympse and Kaliki.
