First Chevy Tahoe PPVs Go to County of Ventura
The very first Chevy Tahoe PPVs have been delivered to the county sheriff’s department in Ventura County in California. The department will add in 25 of these police vehicles by the end of the year and will add in more starting next year as its aging Ford Crown Victorias and Dodge Chargers are phased out.
“The safety and ergonomics of the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe PPV are the key reasons for the sheriff’s department and our fleet operations team choosing this vehicle to replace their current patrol vehicles,” said Peter Bednar, the Fleet Operations manager for the County of Ventura. “The visibility from the vehicle allows deputies to better spot incidents and react faster.”
The Chevy Tahoe PPV is already gaining in popularity. More than 6,500 Tahoe PPVs have been ordered since March of this year. Part of the attraction likely stems from its four-wheel-drive capability, as the Chevy Tahoe police vehicle is the only full-size, body-on-frame truck-based model available.
In addition to the Chevy Tahoe PPV, Chevrolet offers a Chevy Caprice PPV, a Chevy Impala Limited Police sedan, and a Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab Special Service Vehicle.
