Delta Force vets show us why they love Chevy’s big SUVs

The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Midnight Edition media program at The Range Complex in Raleigh, NC. Tahoe and Suburban Midnight Editions were released late last year. They are the latest additions to the growing portfolio of Chevrolet Midnight Edition vehicles, among the fastest-selling of Chevrolet’s special editions. Founded by former members of Delta Force, the Range Complex offers customized training and consulting solutions for government, military, law enforcement, corporate clientele and the public.

The United States Special Forces are perhaps the best tactical fighting force the world has ever seen. Whether it’s hostage rescue, covert operations, or a Bin Laden-esque kill-or-capture mission, the Tier 1 Operators of the US military are the ones to beat. As any Boy Scout can tell you, being prepared is the key to success. For these operators, it’s about having the best training, the best intelligence, and the best equipment—whether it’s $40,000 night vision goggles that turn night into day or $60,000 blacked-out SUVs.

Both of Chevy’s full-size SUVs are very popular with both military and civilian law enforcement agencies. That’s thanks partially to tradition (the Suburban has been around in one form or another since the 1930’s and is the longest running vehicle nameplate in the US) and partly to the features of the car itself.

Range Complex instructors—all former Delta Force operators—leap into action and prepare to breach the shoot house.

They’re roomy, with space for burly soldiers carrying body armor, rifles, ammo, and the rest of their gear. These vehicles are also reliable and easy to work on, thanks in large part to GM’s worldwide parts supplier network. Plus, the SUVs prove quite durable—the Range Complex founder James Reese, a former Delta Force commander, told us a war story from the early days of the Iraq war when he and his commander came under fire on the infamous Route Irish in Baghdad while driving a standard Tahoe purchased off a dealer lot in Kuwait. The vehicle sustained more than 50 bullet holes, including five through the engine block, but it kept running long enough to get both occupants back to safety with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds
