Chevrolet Tahoe (2008) 1/24 Diecast Metal Model by Welly
This model of the Tahoe is about 7.75 inches long, 3 inches wide and 3.25 inches high. It is highly detailed, with beautiful body paint and accurate markings. Welly makes very high quality models and this one is not the exception. Headlights, taillights and turn signals are made of separate plastic pieces which makes the whole model look very realistic. Moreover, side mirrors are also made of separate pieces.
Doors can open to reveal a very detailed and accurate interior with some touches of color on parts such as seats, seat belt buckles and even on the instrument panel. The engine compartment can be opened and the engine is nicely represented.
General Motors redesigned the Tahoe and Yukon on the new GMT900 platform in late 2005 as a 2007 model. A hybrid version of the Yukon, which uses the shared GM/ChryslerAdvanced Hybrid System 2, followed with the 2008 models. The GMT900 based Tahoe and Yukon exceeded initial sales expectations and continued to sell well despite a weakening market for large SUVs. The short-wheelbase Tahoe and its police counterpart began production at Arlington Assembly on December 1, 2005. SWB Yukon production began in early 2006, with Janesville Assembly coming on line as well. Long-wheelbase versions began at Janesville and Silao Assembly in March. For the first time, GM used the Tahoe name inMexico.
