2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban to Feature OnStar 4G LTE
2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are now featuring more connectivity and convenience than ever, which further enhances the redesigned SUVs. The new features include OnStar 4G LTE with a standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless phone charging capability and a hands-free liftgate. In fact, Chevrolet is the first brand to bring built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi to cars, trucks and crossovers. In the case of Tahoe and Suburban, the technology will come as a standard on the LT and LTZ models.
Thanks to it the driver and passengers will stay always connected. The hotspot is on whenever the vehicle is on. On the other hand, the hands-free liftgate and wireless phone charging come as an option with the Luxury Package on LT models, but they are standard on LTZ.
In details, the hands-free liftgate allows for a keyless opening and closing of the liftgate by waving foot under a sensor beneath the rear fascia. With the wireless phone charging feature, a magnetic inductive charging system allows users to place their phone on a small mat in the vehicle, where it wirelessly charges.
2015 Tahoe and Surburban are offered in three trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ. Some of their functionality and technology features include the Front Center Air Bag, which deploys from the inboard side of the driver's seat and inflates between the driver and front passenger, providing added protection for both front occupants in side-impact crashes.
The fold-flat second- and third-row seats contribute for more cargo space and convenience due to the addition of power-folding feature. Moreover, there are more than six USB ports and six power outlets featured inside the vehicles. As an option, Chevrolet is also adding a Blu-ray DVD player, conversation mirror in the overhead console and keyless entry and push-button start.
What powers the vehicles is the standard EcoTec3 5.3L V-8 engine which features direct injection, cylinder deactivation, continuously variable valve timing and an advanced combustion system. 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban with enhanced convenience and connectivity will be in October.
