What Is It?

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle, or PPV, is a police-ready version of Chevrolet's recently redesigned Tahoe SUV. Compared to the outgoing Tahoe PPV, the latest model offers updated styling, a new engine and extra tools to make the job a little easier.

Under the hood, the 2015 Tahoe PPV uses Chevrolet's all-new 5.3-liter V8 that makes 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. That's an increase of 35 hp and 43 lb-ft over last year's model, giving the latest Tahoe PPV an advantage in pursuits and on the highway.

But the Tahoe PPV offers more than a bulkier engine. In addition to the new styling, the SUV boasts an auxiliary battery that lets officers run the many electronics in a modern police car even when the engine isn't switched on. There's also a redesigned center console that provides easier use and more room for laptops and other police-specific items.

How Much?

While Chevrolet hasn't announced pricing for the latest version, last year's Tahoe PPV started at around $44,000 with shipping. We wouldn't expect prices to jump too much for the 2015 model.

When Can You Get It?

Mid-2014

Add It to Your Shopping List Because…

The Tahoe is the largest police SUV, and its new engine places it toe-to-toe with its main rivals for power. That's an important feature for when you're trying to collar a criminal, transport the long list of items associated with police work and chase after speeding drivers on the highway. It may be pricey, but the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe PPV is an excellent choice for police departments interested in picking up the most capable vehicle around.

Other Cars to Consider

Dodge Durango Special Service -- The Durango Special Service is available for use by police departments or fire crews. It's not pursuit-rated, which means it can't do the same high-speed duty as the Tahoe. But it's cheaper, and there's an available 360-hp HEMI V8.

Ford Explorer Police Interceptor -- Technically dubbed the Ford Police Interceptor Utility, the Explorer Police Interceptor offers a choice between a 305-hp V6 and a 365-hp EcoBoost V6. The Explorer is also cheaper than the Tahoe, but it doesn't offer as much room inside.
