We are preparing for the next creation of the famous full-size SUV, which is about to reach the market sometime within the next year. As you probably know, GM began to refurbish a complete lineup of full-size SUVs and truck. The new Silverado already came, although the following year is going to bring us new 2020 Chevy Tahoe, as well as new generations of HD trucks, Suburban, etc.
The new SUV has been seen on the street again. It wears a complete camouflage, but we know a couple of things about the new model for sure. Of course, the core of this redesign is a new platform. However, the 2020 Tahoe is also about to find an entirely new styling, interior design, as well as a fully updated powertrain lineup. Expect to see the new model sometime in the following year.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Overview
Even though the most obvious, a platform is the main thing about each redesign. The 2020 Chevy Tahoe will not be an exception. We are just about to see the same T1 structure that had its debut recently in the new-generation Silverado. This implies a whole lot of improvements. The new platform brings lots of novelties regarding mechanics and overall design. Count on significant weight savings, as well as on improved driving dynamics. One of the most intriguing novelties for the 2020 Tahoe will be an independent rear suspension.
This novelty probably won’t be accepted so nicely one of the hardcore SUV lovers, but it feels like a reasonable compromise, considering the total level of comfort will be at much higher degree and, to hones, these huge SUVs are way more family-oriented vehicles compared to off-roaders, so a higher degree of relaxation would be more than welcome. For most drivers, styling plays a very important part, even within this section where the strongest points are things like interior space, practicality, etc.
So, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe must come with lots of novelties in this aspect. The testing model still wears a complete camouflage, so it seems difficult to talk about specifics. Nonetheless, it’s not hard to observe the overall shape will stay pretty much the same. We are about to see similar proportions, even though many reports suggest marginally bigger dimensions. It’s not hard to guess the front end must closely resemble the new Silverado. Throughout the new face seems familiar, there is a fair number of new details that improve overall visual appeal.
Interior and Design
Regarding base interior design characteristics, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe will continue in the same way. Anticipate three rows of seating, with capacity for either 7,8 or 9 individuals. As we mentioned, the new model should feature just a little bit more wheelbase. This ought to fix the biggest issues of the present model, tight third row and below-average cargo capacity. On the other side, the standard of materials has always been at a high level within this SUV.
Thus we do not doubt that the 2020 Chevy Tahoe will continue in the same manner. Still, remember that the Tahoe’s biggest rival, Ford Expedition is about a pretty high level in this aspect. Therefore improvements are always welcome. Same is true for technology features. Expect to see a very long list of innovative systems in aspects of security, driver-assist, entertainment, etc.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Engine
If we can rely on the most recent reports, GM prepares several intriguing novelties regarding powertrain. First of all, we hope to see the company’s new turbo inline-four from the offer. It is an efficient 2.7-liter engine, which provides around 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque. Also, some reports suggest a diesel engine in the offer as well. Of course, we are speaking about familiar 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-six engine which provides around 280 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
Rest of the engine lineup must stay the same. This usually means that the two very familiar V8 units will carry over, probably without larger changes regarding power, torque, and other specs. The very first one is a 5.3-liter unit with around 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The other one is a 6.2-liter engine, which features a max output of approximately 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. When it comes to the transmission, the new 2020 Chevy Tahoe will include either 8- or 10-speed gearbox, based on the engine choice.
Release Date and Price
It still wears a camouflage, but will hit the market sometime within the next year. We expect to see its premiere at some of the forthcoming major car shows, possibly even at Detroit. When it comes to the price, the new model shouldn’t go far away from the current model, which goes at a range between 48.000 and 66.000 dollars, roughly.
