Clear Lake, Minnesota-based fleet vehicle upfitter Guardian Fleet Safety recently shared a video on its YouTube page of a feature-packed Chevy Tahoe PPV that it built for the Benson County Sheriff’s Office in North Dakota – giving us a rare in-depth look at a ready-to-toll Tahoe PPV.
This K9 unit is based on the new 2021 Chevy Tahoe PPV, but has been outfitted with a large number of components and accessories to help make law enforcement’s job a little bit easier. Some of these components include a Westin brush guard with headlight loops, nForce grille lights, an mPower light bar, eight rear mPower lights and luminescent black “shadow” police graphics.
Another interesting feature of this K9 unit is the special one-button K9 mode. At the push of a button on a fob, all of the vehicle’s exterior lights will illuminate in an ultra-bright white light and the Tahoe’s rear door will open, allowing the K9 to exit the vehicle and aid the officer in apprehending a suspect. This overrides the flashing red and blue lights, as well, allowing the dog see further ahead and easily locate the officer in need of assistance.
As we already know, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe PPV is available with either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Under the hood, PPV models are equipped with the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, which comes with heavy-duty oil cooling and rocker covers plucked from the 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. Like the rest of the current Chevy Tahoe lineup, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe PPV is produced at the GM Arlington Assembly facility in Arlington, Texas, which is the same facility that is also responsible for producing the GMC Yukon, Cadillac Escalade, and Chevy Suburban.
