2012 Chevrolet Tahoe: Raising the Bar for Traditional SUVs

Traditional, truck-based SUVs get a bad rap: they’re often assumed to be noisy, rough, and stiff gas guzzlers. The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe, a full-size traditional SUV, belies this stereotype with its comfortable cabin, cushioned ride, spirited acceleration, and surprising maneuverability.

The versatile seating also consists of a standard split second-row bench seat and removable split third-row seat that allow occupants to maximize and customize cargo space and shape.

Depending on the trim level chosen, other notable features include remote engine starter, power-adjustable pedals, rearview camera system and rear parking assist, OnStar, driver memory, heated/ventilated front and second-row captain’s chairs, off-road package, navigation system, 10-speaker Bose surround sound audio system, sunroof, and rear-seat entertainment system. Luxuries like these are often hard to come by in a truck-based SUV, but the Tahoe aims to swaddle passengers in comfort and quality.

Safety devices abound, such as traction and stability control and a full set of airbags. Crash test ratings are high, except the rollover rating: a respectable three stars.

Riding in the 2012 Chevy Corvette – The Return of a Legend

The Chevy name and brand is synonymous with the Corvette. The 2012 Corvette “C6” range includes some slight changes to the 2011 Corvette. The Corvette still sports a base Corvette model as well as a Z06 and a high performance ZR6 model. The Corvette now sports a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine or a newly improved 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine which is built specifically for racing performance alongside either an automatic transmission, or manual transmission.

The Corvette is an iconic sports car and the 2012 range is no exception. The 2012 model was revised to improve the overall performance from the 2011 range. While the interior remains mostly unchanged from the 2011, the largest improvements in the Corvette range have come in terms of performance and the exterior. Some changes include:

• A new interior options and trims with new seats and a redesigned steering wheel.

• Performance enhancements such as improved traction control and new brakes.

• Optional gear such as a new full-width rear spoiler and a carbon fiber based hood.

• Optional Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires.

The slight changes make the Corvette one of the fastest cars around. In addition to the carbon fiber hood, the Corvette is about 136 pounds lighter which helps in the Corvette’s overall performance but also makes it more fuel efficient. The changes to the Corvette range have helped the sports coupe increase its performance by eight per cent which translates into an improved 0-60 acceleration of 3.7 seconds. Of course, the most important factor of the Corvette range is not just how it performs but how it handles in everyday use.

For a sports car, an overall MPG of about 24 on the highway is not bad, while the Corvette Z06 pulls in 16 MPG in the city. The Corvette range is also covered by Chevy’s 100,000 mile/5 year warranty.

The 2012 Chevy Corvette: True to the Legacy

If one was to list the iconic cars of American motoring, one would have to include the Chevy Corvette. Born in the decade following World War II, its early models were emblematic of the post-war boom of all things American. The first Corvettes were an attempt by the surging General Motors Corporation to offer a stateside alternative in a market segment that had been dominated by the Europeans.

The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe is a worthy heir to that legacy: powerful, sporty, technologically advanced, but affordable. The base Coupe is priced remarkably considering the power under the hood, Corvette bragging rights, and the cutting-edge appointments of the model. The Coupe comes with standard 430 horsepower 6.2 liter V8 that gets driver and car from zero to 60 in 4.2 seconds. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control and traction control helps manage that power to match the road, whether winding or flat out. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are also standard.

On the outside, the Coupe features a removable roof panel that’s also available as a clear panel. Classic Corvette styling is not lost as Chevrolet marks its centennial in 2012 with traditional rounded fenders, dynamic lines, and two special colors: Carlisle Blue and Carbon Flash Metallic with the Centennial Edition. Chevy is also letting buyers choose the color of brake calipers, available in four color choices, and headlamps—three color choices.

The cockpit boasts a new seat design for comfort and control in high-performance settings. In the 2LT version and above, a heads-up display, Bose sound system and Bluetooth wireless technology are included along with a six-month trial subscription to GM’s OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation and Sirius Satellite Radio. There are also more than 50 dealer-installable accessories available to customize this personal bit of American automotive iconography.
