Tahoe set for British shores

GENERAL Motors is to take advantage of the growing market for big 4x4s by launching the Chevrolet Tahoe in Britain this autumn. Expected to cost from £32,000, the 5.3-litre V8 petrol-engined four-door station wagon holds the title of Europe's largest off-roader and has already gone on sale in Germany, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

The eight-seater Chevy, big brother to Blazer, will come with a part-time dash-select four-wheel-drive system, which automatically switches to 4x4 when it detects maximum traction is required. Tahoe's eight-cylinder engine produces 273bhp at 5,200rpm and 315lb-ft of torque at 4,000rpm. Combined fuel consumption is 18.3mpg and carbon dioxide emissions performance is 366g/km.
