We are getting ready for the new generation of the popular full-size SUV, which is about to get a fine portion of novelties for this occasion and come as the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe. The outgoing model has been around for about five or six years. That definitely isn’t a long time for the segment, especially if we consider that some of the rivals feature decade-old design. However, Chevy wants to keep its good position on the market and to keep the pace with the closest rival, Ford Expedition, which came completely redesigned last year. For this redesign, the company will mount the Tahoe on a new platform, which will provide better driving characteristics.
The new model will also save some weight, so we can count on better fuel economy as well. Of course, count on a new styling and interior layout, while some reports also suggest a new base engine, as well as a version with an oil-burner.
2020 Tahoe Redesign
GM has recently started with redesigning of its complete SUV and truck lineup. A new platform, codenamed T1, has been introduced recently with the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado. The 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe will ride on the same architecture and we count on similar kinds of improvements that we saw in the new version of the popular full-size truck. First of all, the new model will be lighter, probably for about 300 pounds. This promises improvements not just in terms of fuel economy, but in overall driving characteristics as well.
Another important mechanical novelty should be an independent rear suspension. This new setup should significantly improve comfort, especially in rear rows of seats. However, keep in mind that it will probably be available in higher trims only. So, count on extra costs for this feature.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Exterior Design
Besides the new platform, this redesign will also bring numerous changes in terms of styling. First of all, we should mention that the new model will be slightly bigger. It will probably feature a little bit longer wheelbase and overall length. That should solve some of the issues of the outgoing model, which definitely isn’t generous in terms of the cargo space and legroom in the third row of seating. Of course, we will see completely new aesthetics. The new 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe is about to feature styling that follows the brand’s newest design language.
In practice, that would mean pretty much the same front end as in the new Silverado. This means a sharper and overall more attractive approach, which would include the intriguing air curtains as well. These curtains are positioned on the front bumper, in front of each wheel. The main purpose is not just to provide better aerodynamics, but also to provide plenty of cool air to the brakes.

Once again, we count on a lot of novelties. The 2020 Chevy Tahoe will c
Besides enlargement, the new cabin should get a completely new look as well. Count on a completely new dashboard design, which should be a little bit more stylish compared to the new Silverado. Also, we expect from GM to use higher-quality materials this time, as the current model features disappointing quality in some areas of the cabin. Finally, count on a lot of standard features. This will include some of the latest tech goodies and a long list of standard safety systems.
Chevrole Tahoe Engine
Big novelties will come under the good as well. Latest reports suggest that the new 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe will get a new base engine. It should be GM’s new 2.7-liter turbo-four engine, which is good for about 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque. Also, we expect to see a diesel version of the new SUV in the near future. That should be a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel engine and most reports estimate a max output of around 280 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
The two well-known V8 will carry on without bigger changes. So, count on a 5.3-liter unit with around 355 horsepower, while the bigger 6.2-liter engine will be good for about 420 horses.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Tahoe should be unveiled at some of the upcoming major shows. When it comes to the production model, it will probably hit the market sometime in the third quarter of the next year. Details about the price are still unavailable, but we estimate base models will go around 48.000 dollars.
