The first-generation Tahoe hit the market in 1995. In 2000, Chevrolet completely redesigned the Tahoe, giving it a sleeker look and introducing a pair of new V-8 engines. The overall height and ground clearance of a stock 2002 Tahoe varies, depending on the trim level, equipment and driveline configuration.
All two-wheel-drive variants of the 2002 Tahoe had a stock height of 74.3 inches and a stock ground clearance between 8.4 and 9.8, depending on options. On four-wheel-drive variants, the ride height dropped to 74.1 inches, but the ground clearance increased to 10.6 inches.
