Similar to the Chevy Yukon except styling and available Denali trim, the Chevrolet Tahoe is a full-size SUV which is roomy, luxurious and very powerful under the hood. Its towing capacities are strong and off-road ability is great with the optional 4-wheel drive configuration which can conquer any type of terrain. However, what you won’t like is its low fuel efficiency and it could get a bit pricey. For example, even the Chevrolet manufacturer has less expensive, three-row SUV with rather good off-road capability, Traverse model. They have recently revealed the 2018 model year, but all indicate that we should soon see the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe.
The 2018 Chevy Tahoe has entered the market with a couple of changes. Those are the new RST (Rally Sport Truck) which adds a few exterior changes such as black details, body-color grille, and upgrades under the hood. As well, the base LS model is now available with two-row seating configuration. The newest 2019 Tahoe should be almost unchanged from the current model and the only upgrades we could expect are new exterior color and a few more interior color combination. In the engine department, everything should stay the same.
Types of engines and performances
The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe will offer two powerful V-8 engines under the hood. And there will be a choice between a standard rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations. So, the one will be a 5.3-liter V-8 engine which will be able to make 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. With RWD it gets 16/23 mpg in the city/highway. With all-wheel drive, it is rated at 16/22 mpg
The second choice is a 6.2-liter V-8 engine. This one will be able to make 420 horses and the torque of 460 lb-ft. As for the fuel economy, it is estimated to be 15/22 mpg with RWD. With AWD, it gets 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. The engines will pair with a six-speed automatic while the 10-speed automatic gearbox will be optional.
Design of exterior and interior
The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe will keep its typical SUV and boxy shape with square lines. The front end is more pronounced than the rear because of the massive chrome grille and the semi-split headlamps.
The interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe will be luxurious, comfortable and very spacious. The base trim will now offer the two-row seating configuration while the other versions will arrive with three rows of seats. The second and the third row can be folded flat. And there is a space of impressive 95 cubic feet of cargo space. On the center of the dash, there will be an 8.0-inch touchscreen with the standard infotainment system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Furthermore, the standard equipment will include also dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, five USB ports, seven airbags, stability control and anti-lock brakes. The higher trims will add Bose audio, heated front seats, blind-spot monitors, a heated steering wheel, and so on. The rear-seat DVD entertainment system, larger alloy wheels, and a moonroof will be optional.
Release date and price of the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe
The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe should be presented to the world in late 2018. Its price should remain unchanged from the 2018 model and it starts at $47,500.
