Chevrolet has unveiled the next-generation Tahoe SUV and its extended version called the Suburban. The models have been seriously redesigned and diesel engines are available again after a 20-year hiatus. We will tell you what other interesting details the new products have.
The new Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban received a three-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel with a capacity of 281 hp. (623 Nm). The previous naturally aspirated petrol V8 (5.3-liter with 360 hp and 519 Nm, as well as 6.2-liter at 426 hp and 623 Nm) are now equipped with an improved cylinder deactivation system at low loads operating in wider ranges. All engines are combined with a ten-speed "automatic". Drive type - rear or optional all-wheel drive with front-wheel drive clutch and lowering
SUVs retained the frame structure, but the frame has become stronger and more compact for more space in the cabin. The Tahoe has grown in length by 169 mm (up to 5351 mm), in width - by 14 mm (up to 2058 mm), in height - by 38 mm (up to 1927 mm), in wheelbase size - by 125 mm (up to 3071 mm) … The Suburban has not increased so much: the length has increased by 33 mm (5732 mm), and the wheelbase has increased by 105 mm (up to 3407 mm)
In the new generation Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have fully independent suspensions - the rear continuous axle is no longer used. The basic versions are equipped with springs and passive dampers, and as an option, adaptive dampers and air suspension (for the first time on models) are offered with a ride height adjustment in the range of 102 mm
In a completely new interior, the steering column control lever "automatic" was replaced by a push-button selector located near the 10-inch display of the multimedia system. In the dashboard, the screen, depending on the configuration, has a diagonal of 4.2 or 8 inches, but in any case, analog instruments remain. There is also a 15-inch head-up display and two 12.6-inch monitors mounted on the backrests of the front seats
