Seriously Serious: New 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle And Special Service Vehicle

Law enforcement is better equipped than ever with the new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe


  • Enhanced barely begins to describe how hardcore these trucks are.

  • They are powered by the 5.3-litre V8 with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

  • More cooling, better handling and braking, and more capable than ever.


We are extremely conflicted at this very moment. As much as we’d like to see one of these trucks up-close and personal, we’re also thinking it might be best to keep away from these new Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) and Special Service Vehicle (SSV). For more than two decades, GM’s been building these vehicles but, without a doubt, these are the best ever.

Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet. “By listening to the needs of officers from around the country, we have built the best Tahoe ever.” By the looks of it, we must agree. Both the PPV and SSV are powered by the 5.3-litre V8 however for this application, it sports high-performance rocker covers from the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LT4 engine for improved crankcase ventilation. The V8, along with the 10-speed automatic transmission, benefit from specific heavy-duty cooling, and that just the beginning.

There are loads of technology onboard, inherited by the new 2021 civilian version of the Chevy Tahoe. It’s got a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, HD Rear Vision Camera, Rear Park Assist, Hitch Guidance, and an available Rear Camera Mirror. Other safety features include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, and many more.

The chassis’ fully retuned with upgraded dampers, larger roll bars, a lower ride height, which complement heavy-duty Brembo brakes and 20-inch pursuit-rated all-season Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tires. The Tahoe PPV can be spec’d as a 2WD or 4WD truck while the SSV is a 4X4.

Oh, and it looks incredibly badass.
