1997 CHEVROLET TAHOEThe Chevrolet Tahoe (and its rebadged version GMC Yukon) is a full-size SUV from General Motors.

Chevrolet and GMC sold two different-sized SUVs under their Blazer/Jimmy model names through the early 1990s.

This situation changed when GMC rebadged the full-size Jimmy as the Yukon in 1991.

Chevrolet waited until 1994 to rebadge the redesigned mid-size S-10 Blazer as the Blazer, renaming the full-size Blazer as the Tahoe.

The name Tahoe refers to the rugged and scenic area surrounding Lake Tahoe in the western United States.

The name Yukon refers to the Yukon territory of northern Canada. For the 1995 model year, the Tahoe and Yukon gained a new 4-door model slotting in size between the 2-door models and the longer wheelbase and higher passenger capacity to up to 9 nine passengers like the Chevrolet Suburban and newly named Yukon XL.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has praised the Tahoe as one of the best of its class.

The Tahoe is sold in North America, the Middle East (except Israel), Chile, and Russia as a right-hand vehicle. The Yukon and Yukon Denali is sold in United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Middle East (except Israel) in RHD.

The 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon currently serve as a part of General Motors’ full-size SUV family. Lengthened wheelbase models are available for both as the Suburban for Chevrolet and Yukon XL for GMC.

A luxury Denali model joined the Yukon lineup in 1998.

As of 2002, a Denali version of the Yukon XL has also been available as the Yukon XL Denali.

The Cadillac Escalade is closely related to the Denali models of the Yukon. As of February 2014, the 2014 Tahoe was the top-ranked Affordable Large SUV in U.S. News & World Report’s rankings.
