Everyone expected to see the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe completely redesigned. However, it looks like the overhauling process doesn’t go so smoothly and that we will have to wait for another year. Apparently, the new generation will come as 2021-year models. Still, that doesn’t mean we won’t see novelties for the next year. Chevy has decided to bring another minor update for the last production year of the current generation.
Of course, we won’t see anything significant, but the new model is about to come with a couple of new packages, new optional features and similar things. Other than that, things are about to remain the same. Count on the same overall layout, which includes the same exterior and interior design, same powertrain etc. Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe will hit the market sometime late in the year.
2020 Chevrolet Tahoe Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe definitely won’t change. It will continue with a familiar layout, which is based on the previous-generation Silverado. The styling will remain the same, though a couple of novelties are expected. First of all, we will see a couple of new sets of wheels. Also, a couple of new color options are expected as well.
When it comes to the interior design, count on the same cabin, which is characterized by a decent quality and attractive design. The dashboard looks very nice and utilizes some pretty high-quality materials. Also, the first two rows are quite spacious and comfortable, while a big complaint goes to the third row, which is a little bit tight for the segment. The same thing goes for the cargo area, which could be more generous.
The biggest novelty for the next year will be two new packages. The first one is called All Season Package and includes features like 20-inch wheels with all-season Blackwall tires, Max Trailering package, black roof rails, body-color bodyside moldings, all-weather mats etc.
Also, there is an LT Signature Package, which comes with a number of interesting visual details, such as grille inserts, chrome details, polished exhaust tips etc.
Other than that, things are about to remain pretty much the same. All models will come standard with things like 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, along with a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot, as well as with tri-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, HD Radio. In higher trims, you’ll be able also to get things like rear-seat DVD player, wireless charging, navigation, premium Bose audio system etc.
When it comes to safety, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors are standard features. Things like front parking sensors, a head-up display, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, and the automatic emergency braking are also available.
2020 Chevrolet Tahoe Engines
Count on two familiar V8 units in the offer for the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe. Base models will continue with a 5.3-liter engine, which is good for about 355 horsepower 383 pound-feet of torque and comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Also, there is a bigger and more powerful 6.2-liter unit, which delivers around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. This one comes in a pair with a new 10-speed automatic gearbox. When properly equipped, the Tahoe can tow up to 8.600 pounds, which is some of the better ratings in the class. On the other side, fuel economy is pretty typical for the class, as the base engine returns around 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe sometime late in the year. Base models should go around 48.000 dollars. Key rival is the Ford Expedition, but there are also models like Toyota Sequoia, Nissan Armada etc.
Chevy Tahoe Redesign
As we already mentioned, we expected that the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe will come completely redesigned. However, this overhaul has been delayed and the new generation will come in the next year. For this occasion, Chevy will introduce a lot of novelties, starting from a new platform, which will significantly improve the ride quality and efficiency. Of course, count on a new styling, as well as on new interior design. We presume that the company will try to solve interior space issues, though we doubt that the new model will be much bigger.
Among numerous mechanical novelties, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe should also come with independent rear suspension. Without any doubt, this will be highly beneficial in terms of overall comfort. Finally, there is a new powertrain option to come. Of course, we are talking about a new turbo-four engine, while some reports also suggest diesel options. Finally, there’s a chance to see an electrified version in the near future as well.
