After the last year’s redesign, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe will represent the second production year of the current generation. With all the improvements that came with the recent overhaul, we are pretty sure that the next year won’t bring bigger changes. Still, we won’t exclude the possibility to see, as some rumors suggest, a new version in the offer, with a little bit sportier design approach. On the other side, the rest of the lineup will continue in the same way.
So, you may count on an SUV that offers plenty of interior space, both for passengers and cargo. Furthermore, the cabin looks nice and features a high level of quality. This SUV also comes with three capable engine options in the offer, while we particularly like the long list of standard and available equipment, which helps this model stand out from the crowd.
Considering that there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Chevy Tahoe will hit the market sometime late in the year.
2022 Chevy Tahoe Design
Design-wise, second production years rarely bring anything more significant. We expect that the 2022 Chevy Tahoe will be no exception. You may count on all the goodies that were introduced with the recent overhaul, starting from a new platform that has brought a lot of benefits. Furthermore, there is a new, Silverado-inspired styling, as well as improvements in terms of ride quality, efficiency etc.
Still, we can find rumors that suggest the introduction of a new version. The Z71 is already in the offer and comes with features like skid plates, a two-speed transfer case, upgraded suspension etc. So, now could be time for something more street-oriented. Some sources even suggest the possibility to see the famous “SS” badge on the grille again. This model would come with a sportier suspension, upgraded brakes and lots of exclusive styling details, we presume.
Once again, we don’t expect that the second production year will bring more important changes. The recent overhaul has brought a completely new cabin. The first thing we’ve noticed is that materials are finer, while the fit and finish are better. Furthermore, the presence of new tech goodies makes everything look more upscale. Considering all this, the best we could see for the next year are things like new color schemes and a couple of new standard features.
The overall layout will certainly remain the same. So, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe will continue to offer impressive amounts of passenger and cargo space. It comes with three spacious rows of seats, which accommodate eight adult passengers with ease. The cargo area is one of the biggest in the class. You may count on about 25.5 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 72.6 cubic feet behind the second row, and a total of 122.9 cubic feet with both rows folded. These are class-leading numbers, something you won’t get from models like Ford Expedition or Nissan Armada.
As we already mentioned, the next year could bring a couple of additions in terms of standard equipment. Still, most of the things will remain the same as in the current model. For reference, the current model comes standard with goodies like tri-zone climate control, keyless entry, a 10.2-inch touch screen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, six USB ports, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a six-speaker sound system, satellite radio, and HD Radio. Additionally, you can get goodies like navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch touch screens and Wi-Fi capability, wireless device charging, panoramic sunroof, premium audio system etc.
When it comes to safety, the current list of standard features includes a rearview camera, the following distance indicator, forward automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, rear parking sensors etc. You can also get upgrades like lane departure warning, lane keep assist, lane change alert, a safety alert seat, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, reverse automatic emergency braking etc.
2022 Chevy Tahoe Engines
Under the hood, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe will continue with three familiar engine options in the offer. Base models use a familiar 5.3-liter V8 with around 355 horsepower. While this engine will definitely satisfy most drivers, Chevy also offers a bigger 6.2-liter V8. This one puts out around 420 horses and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Also, there is a diesel version, equipped with a 3.0-liter V6, which puts out around 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. This is the most fuel-efficient choice to pick, which also uses a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
2022 Chevy Tahoe Release Date and Price
Since no bigger updates will probably happen, we presume that the 2022 Chevy Tahoe will hit the market sometime late in the year. Base models should go around 51.000 dollars.
