As usual, we never report on these vehicles without taking them for a lengthy testdrive, and the Tahoe Z71 was no exception. During a week's stint behind the wheel, we found the Chevy to be a cut above the standard-issue Tahoe. With its color-keyed exterior, additional stylish body pieces, larger and upgraded wheels and tires, and enhanced suspension, the Z71 package gives the Tahoe a unique flair and dirt-ready prowess. We did have a few opportunities to take the Chevy off-road and can honestly report that it is fully capable of hitting the wilderness and tackling the elements. In addition, the Tahoe is chock-full of creature amenities that make it a very comfortable riding experience on- and off-road. The Z71 package, both for the Tahoe and for Chevy fullsize pickup trucks, has been changed and refined over the years, but we think this current package is one of the cleanest and most functional yet. The Z71 package increases the Tahoe's price to $37,416, which is $3,395 more than the cost of a Tahoe LS 4WD. For that relatively low extra cost, the Z71 package should certainly be considered.
