The current generation of Chevy’s full-size SUV has just arrived and it has brought a lot of improvements. The new model is more refined and offers more space on the inside. It also offers plenty of cargo room and better ride quality than before. All this clearly indicates that we won’t be seeing significant updates in the next few years, which means that the 2023 Chevy Tahoe will probably be a carryover model. Of course, minor updates are always possible, while some sources also speculate about a high-performance version.
All in all, you may count on a familiar layout, which has so many great things to offer. This SUV is very spacious and offers one of the largest cargo areas in the class. Furthermore, we like its broad range of engines in the offer, while the handling feels reasonably sporty for a vehicle of this size and weight. Furthermore, the list of standard equipment is quite long. So, it’s really hard to find any major complaint about this large SUV.
Since no bigger changes are expected for the next year, we believe that the 2023 Chevy Tahoe will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2022.
2023 Chevy Tahoe Design
No significant changes should come for the next year, so we know what to expect from this SUV. The styling takes a lot of inspiration from Silverado 1500 and actually looks pretty good. More importantly, we like the mechanical aspect of the vehicle. The new platform savers hundreds of pounds, while the standard independent suspension has a pretty big impact on ride quality, as well as on cargo space.
For the next year, we can hear rumors about the performance version of the SUV. Some speculate about the legendary SS badged, while others talk about off-road upgrades. In any case, this version would come with a couple of mechanical upgrades and tweaked suspension, as well as with the styling that emphasizes its performance character.
This aspect of the SUV definitely won’t change too much. Simply, the new cabin looks really nice. Even though there are a few areas with low-rent materials, the overall build quality is pretty good. Furthermore, there is a nice amount of tech features, which makes this SUV look even more upscale.
Still, the biggest strength of this cabin is the amount of passenger and cargo space it offers. Base models come with eight seats, while you can optionally swap the second-row bench with captain’s chairs, which improves comfort but reduces seating capacity for seven. In both cases, there is plenty of space for the passengers, while even the third row accommodates adults pretty easily.
Novelties in terms of standard and available equipment may come here and there, but most of the things are about to remain the same. So, base models should come with goodies like a 10.2-inch touch screen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, voice recognition, a six-speaker stereo, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and eight USB ports, as well as with tri-zone climate control, remote start, two household-style power outlets, and proximity keyless entry. Additionally, there are upgrades like a panoramic sunroof, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, wireless device charging, navigation, a second-row entertainment system, a nine-speaker Bose sound system, and a 10-speaker Bose surround-sound stereo.
When it comes to safety features, all models will come standard with forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers and more.
2023 Chevy Tahoe Engines
Under the hood, we expect no surprises. So, base models should continue with the familiar 5.3-liter V8. It puts out around 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough for most drivers, especially if we consider that this engine ensures a max towing capacity of 8.400 pounds.
For ambitious drivers, there is an optional 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque and offers notably better performance.
Finally, there is a diesel version of the SUV, which uses a 3.0-liter V6, which puts out 277 horsepower. However, it also offers a pretty impressive 460 pound-feet of torque, which is more than enough to move this large SUV with authority. At the same time, fuel economy is the best in this class. In numbers, you may count on about 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
2023 Chevy Tahoe Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2023 Chevy Tahoe will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2022. The starting price shouldn’t change too much either, so the base version should be available at around 51.000 dollars. Of course, Ford Expedition is the key rival, while there are also models like Toyota Sequoia, Nissan Armada etc.
