The full-size SUV is a truck-based vehicle. It is not hard to guess that changes on the Silverado 1500 lead to updates on the Chevy Tahoe. The major one is the expansion of the lineup with the electric truck. The 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe EV could use the same platform and be the largest electric SUV in the market. But, nothing is official yet.
Meanwhile, the rest of the lineup stays unchanged. There is no need for updates since the current generation debuted only recently. Upgrades of the lineup are the best way to make the Chevy Tahoe more interesting. For now, we know about a few drivetrains. But, if it goes the same way as the Silverado truck, the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe SS performance SUV might debut as well.
Those two drivetrains would definitely put the spotlight to the new SUV. The rest of the lineup should be the same, with the High Country as the top trim. An oil burner is there for the current version, but the appearance of the 2024 Chevy Tahoe diesel is questionable.
Why Buy 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe?
The SUV is large and spacious. It provides a lot of space for passengers and cargo. Even if you need more (which is a very rare occasion), the company offers a long-wheelbase version of the SUV – Chevy Suburban. Those two vehicles are sharing a lot of things in common. The 2024 Chevy Tahoe is going to be big and massive, making maneuverability more complicated. Also, such a huge SUV needs a lot of power, and that is why a pair of V8 petrol units are the best options. Even a diesel engine can provide enough torque for acceleration.
The company improved the infotainment and safety systems. So, everything is better in the new Tahoe. Still, some advanced options are not only missing from lower trim levels, but those are also optional on the high-end models. For example, adaptive cruise control, Super Cruise, is an extra. Buyers would like to see more quality materials inside the cabin, even if that means a higher price.
Under the Hood
The base configuration for the 2024 Tahoe is using a 5.3-liter V8 engine. It is not a bad option, having in mind the unit can provide 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. We already compared the SUV to the Silverado. Well, engine choices are not as wide as for the truck. There are also a V6 and even a turbo-four unit available there. Optionally, you can pick a larger displacement for the 2024 Chevy Tahoe – a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Both mills are paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission. A rear-wheel drive is standard, with an optional 4WD upgrade. The towing capacity with petrol units is 8,500 pounds.
The 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe diesel uses a 3.0-liter Duramax engine. The turbodiesel configuration bursts 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. The mileage is way better. The diesel unit returns 21/28 mpg, compared to 16/20 mpg on both gasoline setups in the base form. Sadly, this engine is not going to improve the towing capacity of the full-size SUV.
2024 Chevrolet Tahoe EV and SS Upgrades
For the next few seasons, General Motors is preparing a lot electric vehicles. Hummer made a stunning entrance, followed by Cadillac Lyriq. It didn’t take too long for the official announcement of the electric Silverado. Since it shares a platform with full-size SUVs, we assume the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe EV is also on the way. The electric version will probably have similar outputs, range, and configurations.
Another rumor is pretty hot nowadays. The 2024 Chevy Tahoe SS is more likely than ever. Why? Again, the Silverado truck is the rumor source. The company is developing the ZR2 version with enhanced power. A supercharged V8 engine will be under the hood. The first such upgrade is also available on the Cadillac Escalade-V. A 6.2-liter mil can crack 682 hp and 653 pound-feet of twist. Since it is not a premium model, the Tahoe could get a 4.2-liter twin-turbo setup. The Blackwing edition of the Cadillac CTS sedan can deliver 550 horsepower. Again, that is more than enough for the Tahoe SS.
2024 Chevrolet Tahoe Release Date and Prices
The standard SUV is not too interesting, with those potential upgrades. The price stays at the same level for the trims carried over. That means the base version would cost around $50,000. The mid-range packages are RST and Z71, as a $10k upgrade. The premium lineup is Premier and High Country.
An electric SUV is going to top all of them. However, the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe EV will be a concept vehicle, while the production is not starting so soon. On the other hand, the Tahoe SS is not too unrealistic anymore. After the Escalade-V and Silverado ZR2, the full-size SUV is the next to get a performance version. However, the price won’t start under $120,000.
