The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe may not be the biggest Chevy SUV you can drive around Fort Walton Beach, Wright, Crestview, Destin, Navarre, Panama City Beach, or Pensacola, but it’s pretty close. The Tahoe is a full-size SUV that revels in its truck-based SUV performance and capability. Still, its shorter wheelbase makes it a little more maneuverable than its longer-wheelbase bigger brother in the 2023 Chevrolet lineup.
The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe provides a variety of configurations to meet different preferences, needs, and budgets. The lineup includes six trims covering a broad spectrum of specifications: the entry-level LS, the LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and top-of-the-line High Country. Except for the Z71, all other Tahoe models are rear-wheel drive in their standard form, and all-wheel drive is available for any trim. The Tahoe offers several alloy wheel designs ranging from 18.0 to 22-inch sizes. Although every trim level has a robust standard specification, plenty of additional features and upgrade packages are available to customize the vehicle to match personal preferences. The available upgrade packages include Performance, Sport, Illumination, Luxury, Off-Road Capability, Off-Road Performance, LT Signature, LT Signature Plus, and more. The High Country, the top trim level, even has a Deluxe Package to make its luxurious specification even more impressive.
It’s hard to imagine a vehicle of this size and capability would come with a small-displacement turbo engine, which is why the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe is instead available with three suitably substantial tried-and-tested powerplants. The standard unit is a 5.3-liter gas V-8 that develops 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. If you need more than that for what you have in mind for your Tahoe, how about an available 6.2-liter gas V-8 that gets you 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque? Lastly, a tempting Duramax 3.0-liter turbodiesel option provides the mighty Chevy SUV with 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, matching the torque of the 6.2-liter gas engine. Regardless of engine, trim level, or drivetrain, the 2023 Tahoe uses a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.
While the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe emphasizes its traditional truck-based, ladder-frame approach, with a maximum tow rating of 8400 pounds and off-road capability, it also boasts a wide array of high-tech features as standard and available options. Although the LS model has a respectable standard specification, most retail shoppers will likely opt for the LT trim or higher. The LT gets you a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 12.0-inch diagonal color driver information center, a Bose 9-speaker audio system, a wireless charging pad, heated front seats, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and leather seat facings. The High Country comes equipped with almost every luxury and high-tech feature imaginable. Still, even the range-topper can be upgraded with options such as the High Country Deluxe Package and Super Cruise. This GM driver assistance technology provides limited hands-free driving on compatible roads and highways.
The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe is spacious, comfortable, and packed with standard equipment, and it has more than enough power at every level to handle whatever you want to throw at it.
