Aljomaih Automotive, the largest dealer of General Motors in Saudi Arabia and Middle East, is witnessing great demand on the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, which have recently arrived to the company’s showrooms.
The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is one of the most popular SUV vehicles in the KSA market and Gulf region. It is endowed with several enhancements and practical features, in addition to a dynamic design, host of new safety measures and a wider range of advanced technologies. The new car is powered by an all-new EcoTec3 5.3 liter V8 engine with direct fuel injection, producing 355 hp and 519 Nm of torque.
The all-new Tahoe is available in either LS, LT or LTZ versions, along with a choice of rear or four-wheel drive. It features new driver assistance technologies, some of which are radar-based, that serve to reach the highest standards of active safety. Some of the standard collision prevention systems include Forward Collision Alert, Front Park Assist, Lane Change Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control. Also available, is the Safety Alert Seat that uses directional seat vibrations on the seat cushion to alert the driver of a potential threat. The car also has 7 airbags, including a class-exclusive front center airbag (with front bucket seats) designed to activate between the driver and front passenger, thus offering added protection in side-impact collisions to individuals on the opposite side of the collision.
The new Tahoe interior features practical features and premium materials that reflect a functional, innovative and elegant design. Its advanced development resulted in a quieter cabin and a spacious cargo capacity of 2,681 liters. Storage in the center console is large enough to fit a laptop computer or iPad. Plus, the new dashboard features an 8-inch diagonal color touch-screen, which is part of the MyLink infotainment system. The touch-screen also lifts to reveal hidden lockable storage behind the display.
As for the 2015 GMC Yukon, it has been redesigned with better aerodynamics in mind to reduce air resistance, which results in a quieter cabin and lower fuel consumption. Air simply flows around the vehicle with uninterrupted ease, beginning with the bold three-piece middle air intake at the front all the way across its doors and around the rear.
The all-new Yukon heart pounds with an all-new EcoTec3 V8 engine, which features the latest in engine design, thanks to technologies such as Direct Fuel Injection, Active Fuel Management™ and Variable Valve Timing. The 5.3 liter engine produces an impressive 355 hp and 519 NM of torque, and is mated to a six-speed automatic Hydra-Matic gearbox.
The 2015 GMC Yukon is available with an automatic braking system called Auto Grade Braking. It automatically senses when you want to slow your car and engages a Grade Braking shift pattern within the transmission to help maintain your desired speed. As for Trailer Sway Control, it automatically keeps both you and your trailer heading in the same direction. The system uses StabiliTrak sensors to detect a swaying trailer, applying both Yukon’s and the trailer’s brakes (if properly equipped) to help bring it back in line. Finally yet importantly, an integrated Trailer Brake Controller provides fingertip control and easy monitoring of the trailer brakes. Now conveniently located to the left of the steering wheel, it displays the level of brake force or “gain” in the Driver Information Center.
