For more than 30 years, the Chevy Tahoe has been one of America’s go-to full-sized SUVs. From its solid stance to its reliable performance, the Tahoe has come to be known as the perfect blend of utility, safety, and comfort. The 2020 Chevy Tahoe is no exception, with its confident and athletic appearance, premium amenities, and carefully engineered features. The Tahoe is safe, dependable, and quiet, no matter where the road leads.
Powerfully Plush with Plenty of Power
The 2020 Chevy Tahoe offers a bold exterior, with colors that include a bold Siren Red and Black Cherry Metallic alongside classics such as Summit White, Iridescent Pearl, and Shadow Grey Metallic. The entire cabin has been thoughtfully designed with an acoustic-laminated windshield and inlaid, triple-sealed doors. This ensures every ride is quiet, smooth, and comfortable, regardless of the road outside or the passengers within.
It’s in the interior where Chevy has added the features that truly set the 2020 Tahoe apart. With comfortable seating for up to nine, those who plan to hit the road for longer periods can choose the available features that will make everyone more cozy in the long haul. Choose relaxing options like heated second-row bucket seats and 12-way adjustable heated and ventilated front bucket seats. There’s plenty of room for all the “stuff” that comes with nine people, too. The second row and third-row seats power-fold, allowing up to 94.7 cubic feet of cargo space. A hidden storage compartment can be locked to keep the most important things secure.
When it comes to power, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe offers two mighty engine options. The Tahoe comes standard with a 5.3L V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, which offers 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine can tow an impressive 8,600 lbs, and has a best-in-class fuel efficiency rating of 22 mpg/highway. The Tahoe Premier trim package features an even more powerful 6.2L V8 engine, which is paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission. This pairing offers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Technology and Safety Keep Drivers Content and In Control
Chevy is not shy when it comes to the technology included in the 2020 Tahoe, either. Long commutes require quality communication and entertainment features, and the Chevy Infotainment System does not disappoint. The available eight-inch diagonal, configurable touchscreen that displays the Driver Information Center helps drivers put every feature within reach. The available Heads Up Display takes safety a step further and projects the necessary data upward, so drivers don’t need to take their eyes off the road to check important vehicle details. Connectivity with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto helps drivers organize communication, maps, playlists, and more, while the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot makes sure no one loses connection on the long roads and remote trips.
Keeping devices charged is no problem, either. The 2020 Chevy Tahoe can be equipped with up to seven USB ports, including one in the lockable storage compartment. Add the optional wireless charging pad for extra devices. A 100V power adaptor can provide power to auxiliary equipment, whether the trip is for business or pleasure.
Safety is key for Chevrolet, and the 2020 Tahoe is no exception. Rear Vision Camera, which provides a view of the rear of the vehicle while in reverse, comes standard in all models. Available Forward Collision Alert provides a notification when an object is detected close to the front of the vehicle, such as when the driver might be following a vehicle too closely. The available safety alert seat provides a steady vibration to alert drivers of a safety concern, rather than an audible beep.
Trim Packages and Special Editions
The 2020 Chevy Tahoe is offered in three well-equipped trim packages. The base LS model includes the standard 5.3L V8 engine with Active Fuel Management, Direct Injection, and Variable Valve Timing. The Chevrolet Infotainment system is standard, as well, with its 8-inch color touch screen. The second and third-row seats fold flat to accommodate cargo of various shapes and sizes. Passengers in all rows will benefit from the tri-zone automatic climate control, as well.
The LT trim package takes things up a notch, with luxurious leather seating and heated bucket front seats with memory settings. The liftgate is power-operated with a programmable height setting to make loading and loading easier for any driver. This trim package also includes the additional Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning safety feature, which warns drivers with a visual cue when a vehicle is in close proximity, and tracks the lane markers to notify the driver when Tahoe might be drifting too close.
The Premier trim package includes the coveted 6.2L V8 engine and 20-inch wheels, giving it a “bigger, bolder, and badder” reputation on the streets. It includes additional standard safety features, such as Front and Rear Park Assist, which help with guiding the Tahoe into smaller parking spots or crowded venues. It also includes Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, which helps drivers keep track of objects that might be hidden in blind zones.
For those who crave something extra, Chevrolet is offering several special editions of the 2020 Tahoe that take things up a notch in performance and appearance. The RST Edition is available on LT and Premier models, and includes a seriously slick makeover. From 22-inch gloss black aluminum wheels, custom silver accents, black bowtie emblems, and black mirror caps, this edition offers a very modern and urban look everywhere and anywhere.
The 6.2L Performance Package is available on Premier trim only, and includes the aesthetic features of the RST Package with the 6.2L EcoTec V8 engine, Hyrda-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission, and Magnetic Ride Control calibration for the ultimate ride quality. Add Brembo front brakes and a Borla performance exhaust to round out this performance package.
The Premier Plus Edition includes the 6.2L V8 engine with Magnetic Ride Control, and 22-inch, twelve-spoke polished finish alloy wheels. Inside, relax in the comfort and elegance of a two-tone black/mahogany interior with heated and ventilated leather-appointed front seats. Power-assist retractable steps with bright lighting help ease passengers in and out of the vehicle like celebrities, while features like the polished exhaust tip and black roof rails add that extra something that keeps this Tahoe edition in the upper scales of elegance.
The Z71 and LT Midnight Edition are excellent picks for those looking for a little bit of flair on and off the road. The Z71 includes the Chevy off-road package, as well as 18-inch, black-painted aluminum wheels and off-road rated Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. The LT Midnight edition offers 20-inch, black-painted aluminum wheels and all-season blackwall tires. Both packages include the signature black bowtie and roof rack rails.
Regardless of the trim level or special edition chosen, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe comes packed with options that make drivers and passengers both look forward to the trip ahead. With a ride that has been specifically engineered to be quiet, comfortable, and balanced, it’s easy to set the playlist and let follow the road in front of you. Folding seats and extra storage spaces make sure that there’s room for everything, and powerful engine options make towing modest loads no problem. The 2020 Chevy Tahoe is the reliable full-sized SUV to get the whole family, the entire crew, or just you wherever the road requires.
