Chevy Tahoe falls in the category of the full-size SUVs and it
competes in the same arena with vehicles like Nissan Armada,
Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia, etc. This truck-based SUV has
a primary mission of providing seating for big families and
also of towing large loads. But this model also boasts
attractive interior design and has the V-8 engine which
provides plenty of power. What’s more, with the two-speed
transfer case, it provides better than average off-road
capability. It came redesigned for the 2015 model year and now
we expect the 2018 Chevy Tahoe.
New for 2018:
Large SUVs have longer generation cycle than smaller models and
the 2018 model year should not bring the mid-cycle update. For
that, we should probably wait one or two years more. However,
we don’t consider that as the bad thing because this model has
received some important upgrades in years after the last
redesign. The 2016 version brought standard touch screen
interface, Apple Car Play capability, and among the rest, some
safety features like forward collision warning and lane keeping
assist. The 2017 model year added more safety features
including low-speed automatic braking and teen-driver
management feature. With all, the Tahoe is a well-rounded
vehicle and no significant changes are expected for the 2018
2018 Chevy Tahoe: Styling, Cabin
It is hard to make such a big vehicle to look attractive but
despite its large proportions and upright design which can be
seen on other GM’s vehicles as well, the 2018 Chevy Tahoe will
be pleasant for the eye. Crisp, straight lines and hard edges
add to the look of this model as well as Chevy’s signature
The model will also get some visual enhancements in upper trims
and in available options which will make it even more
The story will be the same inside the cabin. It will be focused
to deliver great comfort and practicality but this model will
also feature modern interior design. Expect more than average
quality of the materials and nice textures.
With attractiveness, the model will also offer high-level
comfort in all three rows. Available luxuries will also make
the ride more pleasant.
The new Tahoe will likely come in three main trims while will
also offer additional packages like the Luxury and
The base model will get remote entry, side assist steps, roof
rails but also tri-zone climate control, power adjustable front
seats, the MyLink infotainment system, Wi-Fi, HD radio, etc.
Upgrades in the higher trims will include leather upholstery,
driver memory functions, unique and larger wheels, premium
sound system, more safety features, etc.
Among the safety equipment, this model will offer everything
you can think of including the low-speed emergency braking,
lane departure warning and intervention, blind-spot monitoring,
rear cross-traffic alert and more.
2018 Chevy Tahoe: Performance, Efficiency
An official announcement regarding the engine hasn’t been
available so far but we don’t expect a surprise in that
context. The new 2018 Chevy Tahoe will likely get power from
the familiar 5.3-liter V-8 engine but it might receive some
power and efficiency improvements. In its current form, this
engine can produce 355 hp and torque of 383 pound-feet.
A six-speed automatic transmission is currently the only
available but Chevrolet might offer the new shift box with more
gears in order to achieve better fuel economy. The current
version earns 19 mpg combined with the rear-wheel drive while
the four-wheel drive returns 1 mpg less.
If you want Tahoe with more off-road capability, the two-speed
transfer case and the Z71 package will also be available.
2018 Chevy Tahoe: Arrival, Price
The current Tahoe is available from around $47, 200 and reaches
above the mid-$60,000 in the range-topping version. The company
hasn’t said anything about the price of the new 2018 Chevy
Tahoe. But we expect it to stay close to the current range. The
new Tahoe should arrive in late 2017.
