2022 Chevrolet Tahoe RST

Pros: Interior and cargo room; towing capacity; available diesel engine

Cons: Fuel economy with gasoline engines; tight-quarters maneuverability; top-line models get particularly pricey

CG Says: Following its redesign for the 2021 model year, the Chevrolet Tahoe receives several minor updates for 2022. Availability of the 6.2-liter V8 expands to the RST, Z71, and Premier trim levels; the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is now standard on LT and above; and reverse automatic braking is available in the Premium and High Country trims. More safety features are standard on all trims–including GM’s Buckle to Drive system, which prevents the transmission from being shifted out of park if the driver’s seatbelt is not buckled.

The Tahoe has three powertrains: a 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V8, a 420-hp 6.2-liter V8s, and a 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. All engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors are standard. Other available safety features include rear cross-traffic alert, rear pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and a blind-spot alert system that accounts for the added length of a trailer when towing.  A big, truck-like SUV may seem like a dinosaur in this crossover SUV age, but for those who need expansive interior room and high towing capacity, the Tahoe makes sense. It offers fine all-around refinement and excellent driving manners for a full-size SUV.
