Chevy Adds Four-Wheel Drive To Tahoe PPV To Create Tahoe Special Service

With new competition on the block in the form of the new Explorer-based Ford Police Utility, Chevrolet couldn't afford to rest on its laurels with the Tahoe PPV. Enter the Chevy Tahoe Special Service.

Until now, the Tahoe PPV (short for Police Pursuit Vehicle) has been (surprisingly) only available in rear-wheel drive form, unlike its civilian brethren. The new Ford Police Utility with its Mustang-derived 3.7-liter 300-hp V-6 came standard with all-wheel drive, giving it the edge when the weather gets rough.
To combat its crosstown rival, Chevrolet created the Tahoe Special Service. Indistinguishable from the Tahoe PPV and packing the same 320-hp 5.3-liter Vortec V-8, the Tahoe Special Service brings four-wheel drive, including a two-speed transfer case, into the mix, adding yet one more choice for municipalities looking to replace their aging Crown Victoria-based Police Interceptors.
