    Chevrolet Tahoe comes in 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive. I have been issued the 4 wheel drive Chevrolet Tahoe twice, a 2004 and now a 2008. Both are great patrol cars. I am a patrol supervisor but still do mostly traffic work. The advantage of sitting a little higher than the normal patrol car gives great site distance, also when on traffic stops or accidents, the little height advantage gives better site for emergency lighting to be seen. Inside has much more room for officer and gear. The rear compartment is large and easy to access gear. I have heard the 2 wheel drive Chevrolet Tahoe is better for pursuit type work, as it sits lower to the ground. I have not found much problems with my 4 wheel drive Tahoe other then using extra caution when on back, winding roadways. But still runs great on open road/highway, and two land back roads. Handles great on wet roadways, better than the Ford Crown Vic. If anyone gets a chance to drive a Chevrolet Tahoe for a patrol car, take the chance. I've been issued Dodge Ramchargers, Ford Expedition, Explore, Bronco, and the Chevrolet Tahoe is by far the best 4 wheel drive patrol car out there.

    I use mine as a K9 vehicle. It has alot of room for my partner in the back seat and the rear has all the room you would need to carry equipment. In the Northeast we get a good amount of snow and the 4 wheel drive that I have is great and handles real well. My department now has 2 of the 4 whell drive versions and the are not as top heavy as we expected. We are extremly satisfied with this vehicle.
