Last year, Chevrolet launched an all-new, fifth-generation Tahoe. It’s the smaller of the brand’s two full-size three-row SUV models, and closely related to the larger Suburban, which is now in its 12th generation and covered in a separate buyer’s guide entry.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2022, the Tahoe’s 6.2L V8 is more widely available, having previously been limited to the top Premier trim level. And new this year is a 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster that is standard in most trim levels.
Chevrolet offers the Tahoe in LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country trim levels. Standard power is from a 5.3L V8 engine that you can option to either a 3.0L turbodiesel inline six-cylinder or a 6.2L V8. A 10-speed transmission puts power to rear- or four-wheel drive in LS and LT, and standard 4WD in all other trim levels.
LS trim comes fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, LED headlights and taillights, an 8.0-inch touchscreen and a 4.2-inch driver info display, six-speaker audio, and passive keyless entry.
Tahoe’s standard safety package comprises forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, rain-sensing wipers, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and automatic high beams.
LT adds a hands-free tailgate, power front seats, digital gauges, a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, nine-speaker audio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating, and wireless phone charging.
RST gets 22-inch wheels and perforated leather.
Z71 switches to 20-inch wheels and a different front fascia for an improved off-road approach angle, and it reverts to non-perforated leather upholstery.
Premier adds chrome exterior trim, 10-speaker audio, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, power-folding second- and third-row seats, electric steering column adjustments, and a safety alert driver’s seat.
Finally, High Country gains the 6.2L engine as standard, and adds surround-view cameras, head-up driver display, digital rearview mirror, and rear pedestrian alert.
An advanced trailering package brings a camera-based hitch guidance feature, a brake controller, and smart trailer integration; in Premier and High Country, this package also adds trailer blind spot monitoring.
In trims below Premier, a driver alert package adds blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change alert to trims. And Premier trim can add an enhanced display and alert package with surround-view cameras, head-up display, digital rearview mirror, and rear pedestrian alert.
A pair of LT signature packages adds 20-inch wheels, and a panoramic sunroof. And a luxury package combines the driver alert package with surround-view cameras, rear pedestrian alert, driver’s seat memory, power-folding/auto-dimming side mirrors, power steering column, heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, and power-folding rear seats.
A Z71 off-road package adds magnetic ride control air suspension, and an electronic limited slip differential.
And premium packages offered in Premier and High Country trims add adaptive cruise control and a panoramic sunroof.
Tahoe’s fuel consumption estimates start at 11.0/8.4 L/100 km (city/highway) with the 3.0L diesel engine and RWD, and 11.7/9.0 L/100 km with 4WD. Gas engine ratings begin with the 5.3L engine, at 16.0/11.9 L/100 km with RWD, and both 5.3L and 6.2L V8s are rated for 17.0/12.7 L/100 km in 4WD models.
