We are getting ready for the next generation of the famous full-size SUV, which is about to hit the market sometime in the next year. As you probably know, GM started to refurbish a complete lineup of full-size SUVs and truck. The new Silverado already came, while the next 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 spotted on the road again. It wears a complete camouflage, but we already know a few things about the new model for sure. Of course, the core of this redesign is a new platform, but the 2020 Tahoe is also about to get a completely new styling, interior design, as well as a completely updated powertrain lineup. Expect to see the new model sometime in the next year.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Platform
Though the most obvious, a platform is definitely the most important thing about every redesign. The 2020 Chevy Tahoe won’t be an exception. We are about to see the same T1 architecture that had its debut recently in the new-generation Silverado. This means a lot of improvements. The new platform brings lots of novelties in terms of mechanics and overall design. Count on significant weight savings, as well as on improved driving dynamics.
One of the most interesting novelties for the 2020 Tahoe will be an independent rear suspension. This novelty probably won’t be accepted so well among hardcore SUV lovers, but it seems like a reasonable compromise, considering that the overall level of comfort will be at much higher level and, to hones, these huge SUVs are much more family-oriented vehicles than off-roaders, so a higher level of comfort would be more than welcome.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Exterior Design
For most drivers, styling plays a very important role, even in this segment where the strongest points are things like interior space, practicality etc. So, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe should come with plenty of novelties in this aspect. The testing model still wears a complete camouflage, so it seems hard to talk about details. Still, it’s not hard to notice that the overall shape will remain pretty much the same. We are about to see similar proportions, though several reports suggest slightly bigger dimensions. It’s not hard to guess that the front end should closely resemble the new Silverado. Through the new face looks familiar, there is a fair amount of new details that definitely improve overall visual appeal.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Interior Design
In terms of base interior design characteristics, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe will definitely continue in the same way. Expect three rows of seating, with capacity for either 7,8 or 9 people. As we already mentioned, the new model should feature a little bit longer wheelbase. This should solve the biggest issues of the current model, tight third row and below-average cargo capacity. On the other side, the quality of materials has always been at a high level in this SUV, so we have no doubt that the 2020 Chevy Tahoe will continue in the same way. Still, keep in mind that the Tahoe’s biggest rival, Ford Expedition is on a pretty high level in this aspect, so improvements are always welcome. Same goes for tech features. Expect to see a very long list of advanced systems in aspects of safety, driver-assist, entertainment etc.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Engines
If we can rely on the latest reports, GM prepares several interesting novelties in terms of powertrain. First of all, we expect to see the company’s new turbo inline-four in the offer. It is an efficient 2.7-liter engine, which delivers 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 talking about familiar 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-six engine that delivers around 280 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
Rest of the engine lineup should remain the same. This means that the two very familiar V8 units will carry over, probably without bigger changes in terms of power, torque, and other specs. The 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 around 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. When it comes to the transmission, the new 2020 Chevy Tahoe will come with either 8- or 10-speed gearbox, depending on the engine choice.
2020 Chevy Tahoe Release Date and Price
The testing model of the next-generation 2020 Chevy Tahoe has been on the road for a while. It still wears a camouflage, but will definitely hit the market sometime in the next year. We expect to see its premiere at some of the upcoming major car shows, maybe even in Detroit.
When it comes to the price, the new model shouldn’t go far away from the current model, which goes in a range between 48.000 and 66.000 dollars, roughly. Key competitors are models like the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia, Nissan Armada etc.
