Tahoe Z71 4X4
LOW OWNERSHIP, 39K ACTUAL MILES, LOADED, RANCHO SHOCKS, FLOWS, LIKE NEW Z71 4X4!
If you're a fan of Chevy trucks, you know how special this 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 4x4 really is. The final year for a full-sized 2-door SUV from GM, it was the end of an era. And unlike so many of this truck's siblings, this one hasn't been bashed and abused off-roading and hasn't rotted to a skeleton. Instead, it's one of the nicest, low mileage (39,068 actual) examples we've ever seen and looks years younger than it actually is.
Wearing a sleek charcoal gray paint job, this handsome Tahoe reminds us of why the 2-door full-sized SUVs were cool. Yes, it's big, but it's also tidy enough to go places today's giant trucks can't. Its proportions are excellent, meaning that the "Sport" in Sport Utility Vehicle isn't a total joke, and everyone can agree that Chevy hit a home run with the styling on these trucks. The fender flares, blacked-out chin spoiler, tubular step plates, and other details are a handsome contrast against the charcoal gray paint, which is in fantastic condition overall. There's a deep shine, the gaps are excellent, and even the Z71 decals on the quarters are bright and crisp. Add in a blacked-out grille, the flush-fitting side windows, and an elegant light gray pinstripe, and you get a truck that looks great from any angle. The only other notable modification are the tinted covers on the parking lights, but those can be removed in seconds if you don't like the look. And honestly, who doesn't love the way this truck looks?
The gray leather interior is in equally fantastic condition, and it's loaded with just about every option Chevy could come up with. The power buckets show only minor comfort marks on their leather surfaces, but no rips or split seams, and the massive truck provides truly epic seating. Factory carpets are in equally nice shape, with matching floor mats keeping them safe all these years. The list of features includes A/C, power everything, a wide center console, tilt column, and a great-sounding AM/FM/CD stereo, so this truck still feels quite contemporary and civilized. Everything works, which is truly the sign of a vehicle that's been well-maintained, and if you've always wanted one of these, I can't imagine finding a nicer one. The back seat offers great accommodations for three full-sized people and you can still pile all your gear in the cargo area, which uses an overhead hatch instead of the less functional swing-out barn doors.
Chevy's erstwhile 5.7L Vortec V8 is the right choice in the Tahoe, offering plenty of real-world torque without epic fuel consumption. It's been augmented by a K&N air intake system and a custom program from a Hypertech programmer unit, so there are a few extra ponies on tap to make it feel energetic around town. But otherwise, it's pretty much as the factory built it, so it's reliable and easy to service. The engine bay is shockingly clean, again suggesting that this truck has never been off-road. It uses a familiar 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission linked to a 2-speed transfer case, and all the 4-wheel-drive hardware works as it should. Underneath, the upgraded Z71 suspension has been treated to Rancho shocks that make a noticeable difference in ride quality and there's a Flowmaster exhaust system that just sounds great. Shiny American Racing aluminum wheels look fantastic and carry big 285/75/16 Bridgestone Dueler A/T radials.
Go ahead, try to find one of these, never mind one this immaculately preserved. Perhaps the best we've ever seen, it may be your last chance to own a legend. Call today!
