The 2019 Chevy Tahoe Preview

The 2019 Chevy Tahoe is currently the best-selling full-size sport-utility vehicle in the US, a distinctive accolade considering how many competitors attempt to achieve the feat. The current Tahoe, fourth-generation, has been around since 2015 and has been resistance to change, except for a few added technology features.


The Tahoe is available in two engine options, the base model 5.3-liter V8 with 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque and a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet or torque. The lesser of the two engines is paired exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the more powerful engine can either be paired with the six-speed automatic or a 10-speed automatic. Each transmission on the Tahoe can be paired be with either rear or four-wheel drive. The smaller V8 engine in the Tahoe gets up to 15 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. The larger option of engine barely comes in under the smaller version, at 14 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.


The Tahoe makes up for its fuel efficiency on the interior. The model has enough interior seating for up to nine occupants, the largest capacity available, excluding the nearly identical Yukon. The Tahoe does however suffer when it comes to maximum cargo volume, with only 94.7 cubic feet. Yet, the many other interior features make up for the lesser space interior. The Tahoe does have a maximum towing capacity of 8,400 pounds, a great feature when hauling additional cargo on the exterior.


On the interior, the Tahoe surpasses its competitors technologically. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on an 8-inch touchscreen are standard features. It also comes with a six-speaker stereo, HD and satellite radio plus a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to seven devices. When it comes to safety, the Tahoe employs rear parking sensors; other features like collision-mitigation braking, lande-departure warning and adaptive cruise control are all optional. Base prices for the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe range between $47,900 and $62,600. The base LS model comes with 18-inch wheels, LED daytime running lamps, rain-sensing wipers, and many more features. The LT model has standard leather seating as well as heated driver and passenger seats. Features continue and include power liftgate, a nine-speaker Bose audio package and automatic high beams. The top model, the Tahoe Premier, is the most expensive of the bunch, $62,600, but comes with 20-inch wheels, magnetic ride control, front parking sensors, HID headlights, keyless access with push button start, and a state-of-the-art 10-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system.
