It wasn’t long ago when people suggested we wouldn’t see full-size, truck-based SUVs on Stanleytown, Rocky Mount, and Greensboro streets and highways much longer. How wrong they were. The 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe is a shining example of why people love these big, bold, and imperiously versatile large SUVs. The Tahoe can accommodate up to eight people in comfort with plenty of room for cargo, and it can even tow up to 8,400 pounds when correctly specified.
There are many ways to configure the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe to suit your style, requirements, and budget. Your first task with a new Tahoe is to choose from the LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and range-topping High Country trim levels. Apart from the Z71, all versions of the 2024 Tahoe are rear-wheel-drive in their standard form. All-wheel drive is available for all and is standard with the Z71.
Alloy wheels start at 18.0-inches and go up to 22-inches in many different styles. Although the standard specification is generous at every level, there are plenty of available features and upgrade packages to customize the Tahoe. Available upgrade packages include Illumination, Luxury, LT Signature, LT Signature Plus, Off-Road Capability, Off-Road Performance, Sport, Performance, and more. There’s even a Deluxe Package for the High Country, which makes the opulent specification even more impressive.
It would be a bit of a struggle to sell a small-displacement turbo engine to potential Tahoe owners, at least for the moment. Chevy has chosen to travel a more traditional path with its three available powerplants for the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe. The standard engine is a 5.3-liter V-8 producing 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. If that’s not powerful enough, a 6.2-liter gas V-8 is also available with 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque.
The final member of the impressive trio of powerplants is a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, which provides the Tahoe with 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, the same amount of available torque as the larger of the two gas V-8s. Regardless of the engine, trim level, or drivetrain, all models send their power to the wheels through an excellent 10-speed automatic transmission.
Even though the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe embraces a traditional truck-based, ladder-frame platform and the 8400-pound maximum towing capacity and off-road capability that delivers, it’s also a pretty high-tech environment. The LS is quite impressive for a model that will still primarily appeal to fleets, but the LT is where the retail money will start. Standard LT features include a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 12.0-inch diagonal color driver information center, Bose speakers, a wireless charging pad, heated front seats, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and leather upholstery.
High Country models border on genuine luxury, but even the range-topping trim level can be enhanced further with the High Country Deluxe Package and Super Cruise, GM’s driver assistance technology that allows a degree of hands-free driving on compatible roads.
With its eight-seat capacity and 8,400-pound maximum trailer rating, it’s hard to think of many SUV applications the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe can’t fulfill.
