The Chevrolet Tahoe
(and its rebadged version the GMC Yukon
) is a full-size SUV from General Motors
sold two different-sized SUVs under their Blazer/Jimmy
model names through the early 1990s. This situation changed when GMC rebadged the full-size Jimmy as the Yukon in 1991. Chevrolet
waited until 1994 to rebadge the redesigned mid-size S-10 Blazer
as the Blazer
, renaming the full-size Blazer as the Tahoe. The name Tahoe refers to the rugged and scenic area surrounding Lake Tahoe
in the western United States. The name Yukon refers to the Yukon
territory of northern Canada
. For the 1995 model year, the Tahoe and Yukon gained a new 4-door model slotting in size between the 2-door models and the longer wheelbase and higher passenger capacity to up to nine passengers like the Chevrolet Suburban
and newly named Yukon XL.
The Tahoe is sold in North America, Central America, the Middle East (excluding Israel), Chile, Ecuador, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Angola and Russia as a left-hand drive vehicle. Read more...
