General Motors has added a few minor features to its Tahoe PPV and Tahoe Special Service for the 2016 model year, the automaker has announced.

The all-wheel-drive Tahoe Special Service, which is not pursuit rated, will receive an available off-road package that includes a 3.42 axle ratio, Duratrac off-road tires, and 18-inch wheels. The vehicle will also offer two additional exterior colors, including Slate Gray and Siren Red Tintcoat. GM first introduced the vehicle with the 2015 model year.

The rear-wheel Tahoe PPV received three updates for 2016, including optional aluminum wheels, a track detect mode that doesn't require a button push for StabiliTrak, and a new exterior color of Slate Gray.

The engine and powertrain lineups for the vehicles return from the 2015 model year.

    Police simply must have armored glass in their vehicles. Bullet-riddled windows can be seen frequently these days, often resulting in death. Hopefully Chevrolet will offer this package.

    When will the Tahoe be added to GSA AutoChoice and will the public sector be able to afford it?

    great choice by the Sheriffs Dept....Chevy has the Chevrolet SS which could be ideal for a police package or the Malibu with rear wheel drive and a 425 HP. engine....Why have them built in Australia?

    John. The Tahoe has been an option for GSA for a long time.

    Tim. They are made in Australia because it's an Australian vehicle being modified as an American police car. There are more rear wheel drive cars in Australia, and GM only makes higher end performance cars which are rear wheel drive sold in America.
