New Anti-Theft Features on 2015 Chevy Tahoe

 In hopes of dashing the ever so popular Chevy Tahoe car thieves, GM has added new anti-theft technology and a number of new security features.

Between 2008 and 2012 a total of 856 Chevy Tahoes were stolen, making it the second most sought after car for thieves across the nation.

To battle these staggering numbers GM has implemented a new steering column lock, a new key control system for key recognition, as well as shields to block slim jims and side cut keys making lock picking more difficult.

Breaking glass sensors, interior motion sensors, and tilt sensors are just a few standard features on the 2015 Chevy Tahoe blanketed by another layer of security from OnStar will key your Tahoe out of the hands of thieves.

Todd Hale -Pre-Owned Sales at Jim Butler Chevy

Todd Hale is not a stranger to the Jim Butler Auto Group, he is actually a recent transfer from our Auto Plaza Store in Crestwood.
