Completely redesigned and re-engineered for model-year 2000, the Chevy Tahoe is lighter, trimmer, more powerful and more efficient than the previous model. The Tahoe's conservative-looking skin conceals the highest-technology full-size SUV on the market. But Chevrolet hasn't forgotten that buyers use Tahoes for work, so the 2000 model is loaded with features for towing and moving cargo.
A range of models is available. The base model is a stripped-down vinyl-seat work truck. You won't see many of these. Base 4X2 retails for $25,604, while 4X4 goes for $28,520.
You'll likely be choosing between LS or LT trim. Mid-line LS 4X2 ($31,768) and LS 4X4 ($34,684) include popular features such as rear A/C, enhanced stereo, vehicle alarm and heated outside mirrors.
Top of the line and most popular are the LT 4X2 ($36,191) and LT 4X4 ($39,107), which come loaded with leather, power seats, premium ride suspension, OnStar driver assistance and automatic climate control.
