2018 Chevy Tahoe Release Date, Engine Specs, Interior Design, Performance and Price

Sharing is caring!

When you are looking for a smaller Traverse and a larger Suburban, the best choice you have is the Chevy Tahoe. This full-size SUV with a full three-row can easily accommodate 8 passengers, comfortably. And the new 2018 Chevy Tahoe is just coming our way.

Just a few years back, there wasn’t really a big audience for performance SUVs. However, this has been changing and GM was one of the first manufacturers to notice it and start providing new models to this new audience that has been building up.

And not very long ago, Chevrolet decided to launch the 2018 Chevy Tahoe RST (that stands for Rally Sport Truck) which was specially designed thinking about a younger generation who want to use their new SUVs on the open road or in the city, but not so much in off-road.

2018 Chevy Tahoe Price


Even though the 2018 Chevy Tahoe has great capabilities and is very beautiful, the price isn’t something that you will particularly like about it. After all, the new 2018 Chevy Tahoe starts at $47,000. However, with so many different options and only by experimenting a little with all their extras, you can easily get to more than $80,000.

2018 Chevy Tahoe Redesign and Changes


When we are talking about the new 2018 Chevy Tahoe, one of the things that most people are looking extremely anxious for is their numerous packages and options, especially the RST. The RST allows you to have a more sporty SUV that improves the handling and looks a lot more aggressive.

Although there are no big changes on the outside of the new 2018 Chevy Tahoe, you can still expect to see some minor updating on the lights both at the front and at the rear, plus a brand new grille on the front. Despite the facelift is small, we don’t see any reasons why the 2018 Chevy Tahoe redesign should be deeper. After all, the truck still looks modern and attractive.
