Set a Course for Western New York Adventure in the New 2020 Chevy Tahoe
The diverse terrain, rough roads, and worse weather of the western half of New York State demand one of the most powerful, dependable full-size SUVs around. That's the new Chevrolet Tahoe.
It's got that old-school body-on-frame design that seasoned orienteers and large families going places require, one built on a truck-inspired chassis rather than, like many crossovers, a car structure. The result: it's big on capabilities, from the raw power you need to tow and haul an extended vacation worth of gear to the advanced safety features you need to rein in the drive with peace of mind. Moreover, now that's back for 2020 and better than before, you can also look forward to the creature comforts, amenities, and in-cabin tech to make everything go off without a hitch for the whole gang.

Every Chevrolet Tahoe features a standard direct-injected 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8, with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) to optimize performance and Active Fuel Management to activate and deactivate cylinders as needed, improving fuel economy. It can produce a workhorse 355 horsepower, backed by 383 pound-feet of torque -- ample acceleration and turning and pulling power to get through the worst the Buffalo-area landscape and climate can send its way.
Paired with a standard six-speed electronically controlled auto transmission with overdrive, the engine's also highly fuel-efficient. According to EPA estimates, in 2WD, it can get up to 15 mpg in a city like Tonawanda, 22 mpg on the highway to Williamsville, and 18 mpg combined between Cheektowaga and western New York Beyond.
Chevy Tahoe is also an expert towing and hauling machine, with a Tow/Haul mode that makes it a lot easier to lug as many as 8,600 pounds when equipped with a Max Trailering package. Factor in power steering and available 4WD, the latter including an active single-speed electronic Autotrac transfer case with rotary controls, and doing it in adverse conditions becomes a matter of course.
Inside, you'll find Chevrolet Tahoe is a command hub for every outing, with front bucket seats, storage in the floor of the center console, and an auxiliary input jack for quick connection of a wired audio device. The leather-wrapped steering wheel provides a pleasant feel while driving, and its controls for sound, cruise control, your integrated mobile phone, and the 4.2-inch multi-color Driver Information Center make managing settings and reviewing driving metrics much simpler. You can even fold the second- and third-row seats to take advantage of up to 94.7 cubic feet of space for luggage and the trip's other essentials. Finally, 10 years of standard Chevrolet connected services access lets you run vehicle diagnostics, get helpful notifications when it's time to bring the SUV in for auto service at a Chevy dealer, and more.
If you're looking for comprehensive protection in city and highway traffic as well as of the beaten path, Chevy Tahoe delivers. Passive features such as a StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, traction control, electronic trailer sway control, and hill start assist help keep the ride and your quarry level, especially up slopes. Plus, a LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children), which is a child-seat restraint system, and an advanced airbag network add multiple layers of extra protection. Moreover, the SUV has plenty in the way of active driver aids.
- Forward collision alert and automatic emergency braking help you steer clear of accidents.
- Lane-change, rear cross-traffic and side blind-zone alerts keep you situationally aware, especially of drift, vehicles approaching from the side, and traffic that's oncoming cross-wise.
- Lane keep assist and lane departure warning help you maintain course.
- Front and rear park assist and a rear vision camera make slipping into that ideal spot at your destination a breeze.
- A Safety Alert Seat delivers tactile safety warnings to augment those audible and visual.
Finally, options like IntelliBeam automatic high beams light the road ahead with other motorists in mind, while those like Teen Driver technology can provide first-time and younger drivers with feedback in the form of an in-vehicle report card. Plus, with a month of OnStar Safety & Security Plan coverage, you can enjoy perks such as automatic crash response, emergency services contact capability, Crisis Assist, help to recover the SUV if it's stolen, roadside assistance support, and more.
Available Trim Levels
Whether you're looking for a large luxury cruiser or just a no-frills SUV ready to take on anything, there's a Chevrolet Tahoe trim sure to meet your needs.
Chevy Tahoe LS
This trim's proof that base models don't have to be entry-level.
For dependable, responsive handling, it incorporates both a heavy-duty automatic locking rear differential and a premium smooth ride suspension, and active aero shutters improve maneuverability. LED daytime running lamps and tail lamps, heated, power-adjustable mirrors with body-color caps, black roof rails, and high-polish 18-inch aluminum wheels add a combination of utility and striking looks, while Rainsense intermittent windshield wipers enhance visibility in wet conditions.
Ascend the black assist steps and step inside, and you'll find perks like tri-zone auto climate control, an 8-inch Chevrolet Infotainment System, and six-speaker audio. The second standardizes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so that you can connect a smartphone, and your favorite HD Radio and SiriusXM programming comes in loudly and clearly through the last. Bluetooth tech, five USB ports, and an aux input jack provide plenty of interfaces for electronics, and an underfloor cargo management system simplifies storing extras.
Chevy Tahoe LT
This midrange trim incorporates much from the LS trim as well as many perks.
They include heated and leather-appointed front seating, a power driver seat with two convenient memory presets, and accelerator and brake pedals that are both power-adjustable. An auto-dimming rearview mirror provides a clearer view of traffic behind you while you enjoy music and talk radio via a standard nine-speaker Bose premium sound system with a center-console subwoofer. Plus, cargo's easy to access using the standard programmable power liftgate.
Chevy Tahoe Premier
This top-of-the-line model comprehends what's included in previous trims, plus more than a few luxuries.
Activate extended-range remote keyless entry and keyless start and climb up the sleek chrome-accented black assist steps, slide in, and hit the road. You'll be impressed by the drive quality afforded by the standard magnetic ride control suspension. High-intensity discharge (HID) headlights and fog lights cut through the thick of it to illuminate the path ahead, and the integrated turn signal indicators on the standard heated, power-adjustable, power-folding mirrors do it for other motorists. Plus, with body-color bodyside moldings, brightly accented black roof rails, a body-color trailer hitch closeout, and 20-inch wheels in polished aluminum, you'll be sure to turn heads.
Inside, you'll find the lap of luxury. Both driver and front passenger seats come standard with 12-way power adjustment, ventilation, and power lumbar control. Second-row, power-release bucket seats come heated, and the third-row power-folding bench seats split 60/40, flexibly configuring to take on cargo. There's even a heated steering wheel to keep the feel enjoyable on chillier outings.
Tech-wise, the cabin's fully loaded, with a 10-speaker Bose Centerpoint premium surround sound system, built-in navigation, SiriusXM NavTraffic, wireless charging for compatible electronics, and more. Plus, you can access luggage via the power programmable liftgate hands-free.
