On Features

The 2009 Chevy Tahoe is available in a wide range of trim levels, from quite basic to luxury-laden. If you don’t have quite the vehicle you want, you can always add options; the Tahoe’s options list is long, with the possibility of packages or stand-alone options.

Standard features on the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe vary somewhat across the three trim levels, but Consumer Guide reports that all Chevrolet Tahoe 2009 models come with "air conditioning w/dual-zone manual controls, rear air conditioning and heater," an "OnStar assistance system," and full power accessories, among others. Edmunds adds that the Chevrolet Tahoe 2009 LS "should please most folks" as it comes with "17-inch alloy wheels" and "an MP3-capable CD player and a trip computer." Those consumers looking for flashier Chevrolet Tahoe trims can opt for the LT, which Edmunds says brings "foglamps, color-keyed exterior trim, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, [and] front bucket seats with a console," while the top-end LTZ "features 20-inch alloy wheels, heated second-row seats, a locking rear differential, [and] power liftgate." Mother Proof reviewers in particular love the power liftgate on the 2009 Chevy Tahoe LTZ since "the gate can be quite heavy to open and close manually."

The 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe can be outfitted with the right features for about any truck buyer’s need—including a few things that you might not expect in a Chevy.

Kelley Blue Book says that some of the "key options" are a "rear-seat entertainment center with DVD player" and "Bose premium nine-speaker sound system." Edmunds states that "major stand-alone options for the Chevrolet Tahoe include a navigation system" and a "rearview camera." The navigation system gets strong reviews from both TheCarConnection.com's editors and in other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, with Edmunds reporting "the navigation system is easy to use." In terms of the numerous available packages, Consumer Guide feels that some of the most desirable are the 3LT Package, which brings "heated 12-way power front seats w/lumbar adjustment" and that "Bose sound system," and the 2LT Package, which includes a "rear-obstacle-detection system, tri-zone automatic climate controls," and "remote engine start."
