Here is a bit of TV trivia: What is the longest running reality TV star? If you guessed the Chevrolet Police Pursuit Vehicle, you are right. COPS premiered in 1991, and aside from our brave Law Enforcement, the star was the new Caprice PPV. Packing LT1 power from the Corvette, it seems that Chevrolet wants our bravest to have the most power.
In a press release earlier today, we learned that the 2021 Chevy Tahoe PPV borrows parts from the Camaro ZL11le. Designed for the world’s toughest tracks, the PPV arrives with piston oil squirters, high-flow PCV valve covers, massive oil and transmission coolers. It rides lower than a civilian Tahoe for high-speed stability, and it has much beefier suspension parts. Six-piston Brembo brakes measure 16″, and the differential is limited slip.
A 200 amp alternator keeps the 760 amp auxiliary battery to power AC for K9 kennels, 31 circuits for the front cockpit, and another 56 separate circuits for the cargo area. If that’s not enough, 25 more shared circuits are also wired in on the assembly line. This means adding the lights, sirens, and any other gear can be done with ease. Dynamic fuel management alternates cylinder firing to save fuel at idle, down to running on 2 cylinders while aiming the radar at you. A 140 mph speedometer will have the law on your bumper before you can downshift, so go ahead and pull over.
