The manufacturer has confirmed the production of the all-new 2020 Chevy Tahoe which will enter the market next year. The new Tahoe will represent the fifth-generation model and will bring a handful of changes and upgrades. For starters, it will ride on the all-new architecture but it will come lighter for around 300 pounds. The exterior and interior will be completely overhauled for more premium, luxurious, and modern look. The interior space will also be highly improved and we expect the top-notch equipment.
2020 Chevy Tahoe types of engines
The 2020 Chevy Tahoe with return with the three types of engines under its hood. The one is a 2.7-liter inline-4 engine which is capable of making 310 horses and 348 pound-feet of torque. This unit will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It will come with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants.
The next option is a 5.3-liter V-8 engine. This one is able to deliver 355 horsepower and the torque of 383 lb-ft. It will also work with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The rear-wheel drive model will get 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Connected to the AWD system, it is rated at 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
The last and most powerful powertrain is a 6.2-liter V-8 engine. This engine has the output of 420 horsepower and the torque of 160 lb-ft. It will be linked to a new 10-speed automatic transmission and will come with a choice between AWD and RWD configurations. The RWD model is estimated to be 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel drive model gets 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
Exterior and interior
First of all, the all-new 2020 Chevy Tahoe is expected to ride on the all-new GMT1 platform which will also underpin the newest Chevy Suburban, GM Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade. This same platform first debuted in the 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra models.
Furthermore, because of the new platform and other upgrades in its design, the newest Tahoe will come with significantly reduced weight and will come lighter for around 300 pounds. As far as the exterior design is concerned, the new 2020 Chevy Tahoe should also be redesigned and we anticipate revised grille, lights, bumpers and perhaps some new design of the wheels.
Inside the cabin, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe should also be restyled with some new color combinations, and space should be significantly improved especially for the third-row passengers. As well, the interior should be more practical and usable and it will provide more comfort and luxury too. Furthermore, on the center of the dashboard, there will be placed touchscreen with the next-generation Chevy infotainment system. Moreover, it is said that the Tahoe will also receive the GM Super Cruise autonomous driving technology and an independent rear suspension.
Release date and price
The brand-new 2020 Chevy Tahoe will most likely be launched in the fall of 2019. The price could get a bit higher than the price of the current model which begins at around $48,500.
