Along with its technical twin GMC Yukon, Chevy Tahoe represents GM’s top offer, when it is about crossovers. This full-size SUV was originally launched in 1995, three years after Yukon’s debut. During these 20 years, we have seen many modifications and we can say that there are four generations so far. Current model came in February 2014, as 2015 year model. It was completely redesigned, getting new look, platform, cabin etc. If we consider all these facts, it seems unlikely that company will make some bigger modifications. However, 2016 Chevy Tahoe will come with several smaller, but nice changes.
