Your Chevrolet Tahoe may be equipped with a feature that improves vehicle acceleration on snow and ice covered roads.

When active, Snow/Ice Mode on Tahoe will adjust acceleration to optimize traction on slippery surfaces. This can compromise the acceleration on dry asphalt.

The Snow/Ice Mode can be activated by rotating the Driver Mode Control (DMC) rotary knob on the instrument panel to the left of the steering wheel.
