The Tahoe is a full-size SUV produced by General Motors, under the Chevrolet brand. It shares most of the characteristics with its relative GMC Yukon. Original model came in 1992, when GMC Yukon was launched. Chevrolet kept its predecessor’s name Blazer, when Tahoe name was finally introduced in 1995.
