2013 Chevrolet Tahoe is one of the Industry’s Most Capable Full Size SUVS

2013 Chevrolet Tahoe

Now in stock at Crotty Chevrolet Buick in Corry, PA the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe is a full-size SUV that offers spaciousness – including cargo space of up to 108.9 cubic feet (3,084 liters) – and a strong towing capability of up to 8,500 pounds (3,855 kg) for Corry, Erie and Warren, PA Drivers needing a full size SUV.

The 2013 Tahoe is available in LS, LT, LTZ and Hybrid models, all offered in 2WD and 4WD. Each is built on GM’s full-size SUV platform that features a fully boxed frame, coil-over-shock front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Wide front and rear tracks enhance handling and lower the center of gravity for a more confident road feel.

LS, LT and LTZ models are powered by a 5.3L V-8 that uses variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management to optimize performance and efficiency. A fuel-saving Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed is standard on all models and contributes to a 21-mpg EPA highway fuel economy rating, thanks to reduced engine speed. That lower engine speed also helps make the interior quieter.

For even greater fuel economy in a full-size SUV, the Tahoe Hybrid uses GM’s patented two-mode hybrid system to deliver a 33-percent improvement in fuel economy in city driving. Please see the separate Tahoe Hybrid release for complete details.

New for 2013 is a trio of exterior colors, including Champagne Silver Metallic, Concord Metallic (late availability) and Blue Ray Metallic (late availability).

Also new is powertrain grade braking in the normal transmission mode – it was previously incorporated only when the Tow/Haul mode was activated. It uses engine torque to help slow the vehicle on descents, which helps reduce brake wear.

 With a broad range of body styles and proven, fuel-efficient powertrains, the 2013 Silverado 1500 now available at Crotty Chevrolet Buick in Corry, PA,  can tackle just about any job a truck owner can imagine – from hauling equipment and a crew to a job site to towing a camper for a family vacation.

Reflecting the importance of low cost of ownership to full-size pickup customers, Silverado continues to offer proven V-8 power with an EPA highway estimate of 21 mpg for mainstream 2WD or 4WD models, and a 22-mpg highway estimate for the Silverado XFE.

Silverado’s capable, efficient powertrains have helped make it the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup, backed by a five-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.

Silverado 1500 offers a full lineup of pickups to meet almost any need, including WT, LS, LT, XFE and LTZ models, as well as the unique Silverado 1500 Hybrid – the industry’s only hybrid full-size truck. Silverado 1500 models are available in three cab styles – regular, extended and crew cab – as well as three cargo box lengths: 5 foot 8 inches (short), 6 foot 6 inches (standard) and 8 foot (long).

Powertrain grade braking is now included in all six-speed automatic transmissions. This feature reduces brake rotor temperatures 100 degrees Celsius on grade tests by downshifting transmission gears, thereby reducing brake applications on long downhill conditions.
