The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe lineup grows in all the proper methods for 2018.
The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe reminds us of the great ol’ days of SUVs—like 1996—in some ways. In lots of different methods, it is a future-dealing with SUV that clothes up properly.
The Chevy Tahoe doesn’t really feel just like the relic that its spec sheet says it’s whereas possessing extra hauling and 4-wheeling capacity than most crossovers. We’ve rated it 6.6 out of 10 general. (Learn extra about how we price automobiles.)
This yr, the breadth and depth of its lineup grows. On the backside finish, there’s a brand new base trim degree that deletes the in any other case standard third row of seats. Additionally new to the lineup is the RST Package deal, which pairs a trick magnetic suspension to an obtainable upsized 6.2-liter V-eight and may be fitted with hefty sixteen.1-inch Brembo brakes. The remainder of the lineup carries over principally unchanged in LS, LT, and Premier trim ranges.
If the Tahoe’s seems aren’t for you, the 2018 GMC Yukon is actually the identical vehicle with its personal styling and an optionally available upmarket Denali trim degree. Moreover, the Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL take the basic Tahoe/Yukon package deal and stretch it by about 10 inches for extra passenger and cargo room. Cadillac’s Escalade can also be an in depth cousin, albeit one with a lot of wooden trim, delicate leather-based, and extra sound deadening.
Excluding the brand new Tahoe RST, all different Tahoe variants come standard with a 5.three-liter V-eight mated to a 6-velocity automated transmission. With 355 horsepower, the 5.three-liter is robust sufficient, however we’re wanting to check out the 2018 Tahoe RST with its non-compulsory 420-hp, 6.2-liter V-eight paired to a ten-velocity automated. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the Tahoe lineup, with 4-wheel drive an additional-value choice.
Beneath, Tahoes experience on a separate ladder body that endows them with a truckier really feel over bumps, extra floor clearance than a typical crossover, and a most towing score of eight,four hundred kilos when correctly outfitted. They’re hardly sports activities automobiles, though they deal with nicely and their delicate suspensions take huge bumps in stride. We’ve not but hung out within the Tahoe RST with its extra buttoned-down suspension, beefier brakes, and stronger V-eight choice.
Inside, the Tahoe is supremely snug up entrance, rather less so within the second rear, and downright tight within the third row. For those who’re solely going to hold 4 or 5 passengers, the Customized Package deal obtainable on the Tahoe LS drops the record price by $2,300 and deletes the third row in favor of in-flooring storage bins. Sadly, the Customized Package deal doesn’t decrease the Tahoe’s moderately excessive load flooring, a comfort to a mandate that the third row within the present model wanted to fold utterly flat.
All Tahoe trim ranges are nicely-outfitted, as you’d anticipate from a price tag that begins round $forty five,000. A loaded-up Premier simply tops $60,000, nevertheless, which places it in competitors with some spectacular luxurious model rivals. Commonplace on LT and Premier trims, and non-compulsory on the Tahoe LS, are some fascinating superior safety features like automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise management.
Predictably, the 2018 Tahoe isn’t the thriftiest vehicle on the street, however at as much as 19 mpg mixed for the rear-wheel drive mannequin with the bottom 5.three-liter V-eight utilizing regular unleaded, this huge bruiser isn’t almost as thirsty because it was as soon as.
