Chevrolet's longest sport-utility vehicle is related to the GMC Tahoe XL and Cadillac Escalade. It includes the latest version of GM's OnStar system in all equipment groups for 2005, while a rear liftgate with flip-up rear glass is now installed in all models. The vehicle's side-sill assist steps have been redesigned for improved aerodynamics and durability, and a more powerful 160-amp alternator has been made standard on all half-ton models. Rear axle ratios are revised, resulting in a 3.42 ratio being standard on all half-ton models and a 3.73 ratio as standard on all three-quarter-ton versions. The Z71 off-road package is now offered on 2WD half-ton models, a newly available stereo system incorporates a touch-screen navigation system and 17-inch, five-spoke aluminum wheels are now part of the LT trim package. A 5.3-liter V-8 engine with a four-speed automatic transmission that includes a tow/haul mode is standard. A 300-hp 6.0-liter V-8 remains optional on 1500 models, while the 2500 can be fitted with an available 340-hp, 8.1-liter V-8 that grunts 455 lb-ft of torque.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
