The most affordable, plainer and lesser impressive version of GM's trio of full-size SUVs, the new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and its longer counterpart the Suburban, have been given a video walk-around focusing on the exterior and interior design and features, as well as a look at its anti-theft systems and advances.
While the contents of the first two videos were to be expected, we're guessing that the reason GM is highlighting the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban's security systems has a lot to do with the bad reputation received by the outgoing Cadillac Escalade. A sister model to the current Tahoe and Suburban, the Cadillac was found to be six times as likely to be stolen by thieves than any other car mainly because it was easier to steal.
GM says that the new models will "offer a new level of security and one designed to deter thieves who target vehicle parts", including a steering column lock that deters push-away and tow-away theft, hidden compartments, and side cut keys that deter lock picking.
“We have engineered a layered approach to vehicle security,” said Bill Biondo, General Motors’ Global Vehicle Security lead. “With new standard features and the available theft protection package, we are making the all-new 2015 Tahoe a less attractive target to thieves and more secure for our customers.”
