2016 Chevy Tahoe changes
The body of the brand-new Chevy Tahoe 2016 will be made out of aluminum and steel. The company decided for these materials to get a solid and strong basis, but at the same time to reduce the overall weight of the car. As you already know, this will have a rather positive impact on fuel consumption as well. We can expect the car to get a new grille, new rear spoiler and new lamps. The vehicle boasts a dynamic line which makes it different from the vehicle it replaces.
