The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is getting a host of new anti-theft features in hopes of deterring thieves from stealing the SUV.

Between 2008 and the first half of 2012, the Chevrolet Tahoe was the second most stolen SUV according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. During that time frame, 856 Tahoes were stolen, behind only the Ford Escape which had 1,014 units disappear from their owners.

Coming standard on the new Tahoe will be a new steering column lock meant to deter thieves that normally rely on push-away or tow-away style thefts. Shields will also be incorporated on the SUV to block slim jims while side-cut keys will make lock picking more difficult. The American automaker has also improved its key control systems in hopes of making it more difficult to start the Tahoe if the wrong key is being used.

Buyers will also have the option to purchase a Theft Protection Package on the LT and LTZ trims, which adds glass breakage sensors, interior motion sensors and tilt sensors that will trigger the alarm.
