2015i GM SUVs Introduce Slew of Updates

Well regarded in America and beyond, the accolades for the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe extend even to the Middle East.

The 2015 Chevy Tahoe was named the Best Large SUV by the Middle East Car of the Year (MECOTY).

Scoring factors weighed by the 12-judge panel include Design & Quality, Handling and Drivability, Safety & Durability, Performance & Capability, Technological Innovation, Emotional Appeal, Driver Satisfaction, Value for Money, Comfort & Practicality, Environmentally Friendly, and Regional Appeal.

“The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe has been developed to meet the needs of our Middle East customers, and being awarded MECOTY’s ‘Best Large SUV’ is further proof that the Tahoe delivers by providing the perfect blend of contemporary design and legendary capability and performance, no matter where our customers go or what they do,” said Abdallah Madhoun, Regional Sales & Marketing Manager for Chevrolet Middle East.

A full-size truck based SUV with considerable towing capacity, the Tahoe, with its V8 engine and wanton disregard for fuel efficiency as opposed to size and power, pivots sharply from the trend toward small crossover SUVs.

Other Chevys to bring home the bacon this year include the 2016 Colorado (Motor Trend Truck of the Year), the 2016 Camaro (Motor Trend Car of the Year) and the 2016 Colorado Diesel (Reader’s Choice Award).
