Anyone have any Experience with the GMC / Chevy Tahoe

Postby Ant » Mon Jul 09, 2018 7:46 am

Anyone owned a late 90s GMC / Chevy Taho / Yukon (GMT400)?
I'm tossing up ideas on getting a newer vehicle and these seem to tick a few boxes.
Needing something that can tow 2.5+tonnes long distance on the odd occasion and something that is fairly capable off road. and something that is very reliable (able to go 2 weeks camping and bush-wacking all over NZ and getting me home again)

I know these things will tow easily but not so sure of the off road part???

Any of you played with one of these in the mud and NZ forests? Our NZ tracks can be a bit tight but I have managed to throw my LWB Safari around for many years without to many issues and I dont think these are much bigger than a Safari/Patrol.

Length SWB: 4,285 mm (168.7 in) LWB: 4,845 mm (190.7 in)
Width SWB: 1,930 mm (76.0 in) LWB: 1,930 mm (76.0 in)

And here are the Tahoe
Wheelbase 2-door: 111.5 in (2,832 mm) 4-door: 117.5 in (2,984 mm)

Tahoe a bit bigger all round.
