This 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4x4 is plenty ready to pull double duty as soon as you get it home: super clean, commuter during the week and a very capable all-terrain workhorse on the weekends. It still features its original drivetrain, is running strong and comes with a collection of maintenance records to prove the attentive care it's received.
It's such a sharp looking SUV - nearing 20 years old, it has a rugged, vintage look that sets it apart from its later-arriving counterparts, yet retains such a fresh appearance that you'll be more than halfway convinced of its road-readiness even before the first turn of the ignition. The Pewter Metallic Silver is the original shade and it presents very well - even with consistent sheltering from the elements, cars of this vintage rarely look as good as this one. The distinctive front grille, with its two layers of stacked lights and gold Chevy emblem at the center, sits straight as a ruler over the bumper and, as you take a lap around this Tahoe, you'll see that the years have left it in good stead. Its body lines are precise, with even gaps surrounding the doors and hood - both of which open and close easily. The glass on all four sides is also in impressive shape, and those long, tinted panes in back contribute a lot toward this Tahoe's unique appearance.
The tan cloth interior has also come through the years in strong fashion. From the plushly padded surfaces of the bucket seats on back to the spacious cargo area behind the rear bench seat, nothing shows anywhere near the level of wear you'd likely expect after two decades of faithful service. The door panels on each side still sit securely to their steel frames and the matching carpeting lining the floor is unusually clean. In front of the factory-issued steering wheel, the dash area sports an array of clear, functional gauges in its instrument cluster and the dash pad running across the top has yet to develop its first crack. The level of functionality on hand here has to be seen to be fully appreciated - in addition to the factory gauges, every control switch and knob appears to work just as intended and the air conditioning is capable of cooling down the cockpit in short order. Comfort and convenience features include a tilting column, cruise control, power windows and door locks and an aftermarket backup camera - not something you see often in an SUV of this vintage - while driver and passenger air bags offer an added measure of safety in the event of a collision.
Everything remains in factory configuration under the hood and the original, fuel injected 5.7 liter V8 starts up nicely and runs very smoothly. This SUV comes with a collection of maintenance records and the engine has benefitted from plenty of that attention over the years as it pairs with an also original 4-speed automatic transmission. The four-wheel drive on this Chevy sits within close reach and is a breeze to activate, making it very easy to prepare for exploits off the asphalt. Power brakes bring this Chevy to prompt stops, while power steering makes it very easy to navigate on its set of stock 16” wheels outfitted with Cooper Discovery tires. The undercarriage looks solid and well positioned to provide a foundation for many future fun-filled miles.
This 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4x4 sports a clean condition that's truly hard to come by in a car of its vintage and its strong running drivetrain and well-appointed interior stand ready to provide a great driving experience for its next lucky owner. Call today!
