When shopping for an SUV, some people like the functionality and flexibility that a small or compact model offers. For other drivers, however, only the spaciousness and luxury of a full-size SUV will do. The 2023 Chevy Tahoe is the perfect example of bold design, ample room and sophistication, and advanced safety technology, all coming together to create an unbeatable option. While changes for this model year might not be huge, they do not need to be, considering the Tahoe has recently been updated with some of the most impressive features you will find anywhere on the road.
Considering the size of the Tahoe, you would expect it to have an impressive engine, and it does not disappoint. Three different engines are available for the 2023 Tahoe, including two different V8 options, so you can get the right amount of power, plus turbo-diesel for those who prefer it. These powerful engines come together to deliver more than 8,000 lbs of available towing, making the Chevy Tahoe a fantastic choice if you have a trailer or boat that you need to take with you. You also get nearly 123 cu.ft. of cargo space available inside the Tahoe, so you can load up everything you need and hit the road in style.
Advanced technology can be found throughout the Chevy Tahoe, including an available 10.2-inch Infotainment display and a stunning 12.3-inch configurable digital instrument cluster on most trims. Equally impressive are the 12.6-inch LCD color touchscreen displays available for rear seats to help keep your passengers entertained while on the road. In terms of safety, the standard Chevy Safety Assist package includes Automatic Emergency Braking and much more. Perhaps most exciting, however, is that the 2023 Tahoe now has Super Cruise technology available, the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assistance system designed to revolutionize the way you drive.
Although the engine is important in any kind of vehicle, it is particularly vital when looking at something like a full-size SUV. This type of vehicle's large size and weight needs to have plenty of power; fortunately, the 2023 Chevy Tahoe has three proven and reliable engines for you to choose from. This gives you the freedom to get the performance you want from your SUV and delivers a driving experience you will not find from other similar models.
The standard engine in the Tahoe is a 5.3L V8 that delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, though you can choose a 6.2L V8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque if you need more power in your SUV. If you prefer a diesel engine, there is also an available 3.0L I-6 Turbo-Diesel that provides 277 hp and an impressive 460 lb-ft of torque; all three engines come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped for it, the Tahoe can pull up to 8,400 lbs of weight behind it, which makes it a great choice for camping or towing a boat behind you.
While all three engines offer impressive fuel efficiency, turbo-diesel has been a fantastic choice for keeping gas costs low. On the 2022 model, the diesel delivered an estimated 21 MPG in the city, and 28 MPG on the highway for a 24 MPG combined fuel economy, making it the most efficient SUV in its class from GM. Official fuel efficiency numbers are not yet available on the 2023 model, but since the engineering has not changed, we expect similar numbers for this year.
Although the engines are certainly impressive, they are not the only thing that matters when it comes to your experience behind the wheel of the Tahoe. For starters, available four-wheel Drive elevates your driving experience, particularly on rough terrain and dirt roads. Beyond that, the first-in-class Four Corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension and Magnetic Ride Control available on the Chevy Tahoe provide a smooth and responsive driving experience that surpasses anything else out there. The control and precision you get to enjoy, despite the size of the Tahoe, truly makes this an SUV you need to experience for yourself.
Whether you are primarily interested in comfort or technology (or both), the 2023 Chevy Tahoe has you covered with one of the most impressive interiors on the market. For starters, this spacious and luxurious interior lets your passengers stretch out and enjoy themselves, even on long road trips. You can choose between seating for seven or eight passengers, depending on if you get a bench or a pair of captain’s chairs for the second row, giving you plenty of options for everyone you need to take with you. When it comes to loading up with gear, you get more than 25 cu.ft. of cargo volume in the rear of the Tahoe, more than 72 cu.ft. of cargo space behind the second row of seats, and nearly 123 cu.ft. of total cargo volume behind the front row for you to take advantage of when you need it.
There are six trims available for the Chevy Tahoe, with numerous luxury and technology options. This gives you a great deal of freedom to get exactly what you want without going overboard for your needs or missing out on anything you have been looking for. While you have numerous choices available, the Premier and High Country are the trims to look at if luxury and advanced technology are especially important to you. The High Country, in particular, includes signature details and features inside and out, including a unique grille and interior stitching that makes it stand out.
Available technology in the Tahoe is particularly impressive and includes a 12.3-inch configurable digital instrument cluster for the driver and a 10.2-inch Infotainment display—both of which are standard on LT trims and above. You get support for Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with the Chevy Tahoe, Google built-in compatibility on most trims, a wireless charging pad, and much more. There are even 12.6-inch displays available for rear passengers, which can come in handy during long road trips.
Whenever you look at any vehicle, safety should always be at the forefront as you consider your options and choose the right model. The 2023 Chevy Tahoe is one of the safest vehicles on the road, largely thanks to its standard Chevy Safety Assist package on every model. This package includes a number of advanced safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Keep Assist with a Lane Departure Warning. You also get a Following Distance Indicator, Front Pedestrian Braking, and IntelliBeam auto high beams—all of these features work together to help you avoid collisions or reduce the damage from an impact if one does occur.
You also have a number of available features that you can choose if you want to take the safety of the Tahoe even further. Adaptive Cruise Control, for example, can help make driving easier on you during long road trips or in stop-and-go traffic. Available HD Surround Vision helps give you a bird’s eye view of the area around your vehicle at low speeds, while the available Rear Pedestrian Alert helps you avoid people who might not be paying attention when walking behind you while you are in reverse.
One of the most impressive options, however, is all-new for the 2023 model—the Chevy Tahoe now features available Super Cruise technology. This is GM’s advanced semi-autonomous hands-free driving system that allows you to take full advantage of compatible roads and let your vehicle do the work for you. Super Cruise is only available on a carefully-selected lineup of vehicles, and we are incredibly pleased to be able to offer it to our customers on the 2023 Tahoe.
