If you’re in the market for a great SUV and you’re looking for a used car dealership in Chicago, you need look no further than Hawk Auto. We always have a great inventory of both new and pre-owned SUVs, and we’ll work with you until you find exactly the vehicle you’re looking for.

Here are a couple of excellent SUV choices to consider.

Chevy Tahoe

The Chevrolet Tahoe has been America’s best-selling SUV for more than three decades and comes in three trim levels, Premier, RST and Premier Plus.

Standard power is provided by a 5.3L V8 that gives you best-in-class fuel economy up to 22 MPG highway. Combined with its Max Trailering Package, the Tahoe provides a maximum towing capacity up to 8,600 pounds. If you need more power, there’s an available 6.2L V8.

Depending on the trim level you choose, the Tahoe has seating for up to 9 and a maximum cargo volume of 94.7 cu. ft.

With the Tahoe, there’s no shortage of technology to keep you both informed and entertained on long road trips. These include the Chevrolet Infotainment System, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. There’s also an available Rear-Seat Entertainment System with Blu-ray® playback to keep passengers entertained during your Chicagoland drives.

Standard safety features include 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, Rear Park Assist and Rear Vision Camera, rear child security door locks and OnStar® & Chevrolet Connected Services capability, to name a few.

Cadillac Escalade

With the Cadillac Escalade you have a choice of four trim levels, Standard, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum. An extended-wheelbase ESV version of the Escalade is also available.



Standard on all trim levels is a 6.2L V8 engine providing 420 HP, along with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Estimated mileage is 14 city/23 highway.

Cadillac calls the Escalade an “Icon of Arrival,” and from its distinctive Cadillac grill and logo to its Full LED Light Blade taillamps, there’s no doubt the Escalade has an unmistakable signature, day or night. Available Power Assist Steps that lower when you open the Escalade’s doors are another of the Escalade’s great exterior features.

Standard safety features across all trim levels include Automatic Parking Assist, Front and Rear Parking Assist and Surround Vision. On the higher trim levels, added features include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Change Alert and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.

Step into the Escalade, no matter the trim level, and you encounter Cadillac quality in abundance. With the Standard level you have premium leather seating on the first and second rows, heated and cooled driver and passenger seats and Bose Centerpoint® 16-speaker audio system.

The standard wheelbase Escalade has 15.2 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the third row seating, 51.6 cu. ft. with the third row down and 94.2 cubic ft. with both rear rows down. With the Escalade ESV cargo space figures increase to 39.3, 76.7 and 120.9

Whether you want Chevy reliability or a touch of Cadillac elegance, either of these SUVs is a great choice, and we invite you to come by Hawk Auto to test drive of one or both these superb vehicles today.
