Chevrolet is arguably one of the auto industry's longest producer of sport utility vehicles. The Chevrolet Suburban was first built in 1935 and remains the brand's flagship sport utility vehicle. Eight decades since the debut of the Suburban, Chevrolet's variety of sport utility vehicle is identified with a mix of truck-based and car-based platforms. The Chevrolet Tahoe exists as a shorter length version of the Suburban propelled by the same eight-cylinder power. Chevrolet's crossover vehicle line-up is led in popularity by the mid-sized Equinox. Topping the crossover is the seven or eight-passenger Traverse. Recently, Chevrolet has reentered the small utility vehicle segment with the Trax, providing a new entry-level point for drivers looking for an all-wheel drive crossover from Chevrolet.
The service-oriented variant of the Tahoe, the 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe Special Service vehicle offers a safe drive thanks to anti-lock braking system (ABS), advanced airbags, anti-roll bar, and traction control.
