If you’re shopping in Yellowknife for a vehicle that can carry up to eight people, occasionally offer up to 3,480 litres of cargo volume, and tow up to 3,810 kg, it’s fair to say your options are limited. However, that’s not a problem because the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe checks all those boxes and then some. As long as you don’t need to squeeze into the tightest of parking spaces, it’s hard to think of many applications the sensational new Tahoe can’t handle.
There are six trim levels in the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe family, or just two if you are only interested in a rear-drive model. The entry-level LS and the LT trim level are standard rear-wheel-drive, but the rest of the lineup gets all-wheel-drive as part of their standard specification. The next model above the LT in the range is the RST, and from there, the range goes to the off-road focused Z71, Premier, and top-of-the-range High Country.
All models boast a generous standard specification, and the High Country is truly spectacular. However, there are many options for tailoring the Tahoe to meet your specific requirements. There are upgrade packages available for most trim levels, and even the High Country is available with a High Country Deluxe Package. That package includes a panoramic power sunroof, the content of the Max Trailering Package, power-retractable assist steps with illuminated perimeter lighting, and the superb Air Ride Adaptive suspension.
A vehicle of the proportions and people-carrying capability of the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe needs an appropriately powerful engine, and there are three of them available for you to select from. The base engine for all models, apart from the High Country, is a 5.3-litre gas V-8 that provides the Tahoe with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. The next option is a 6.2-litre gas V-8 that develops 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. The 6.2L is available for the RST, Z71, and Premier trim levels, and it’s the standard unit under the hood of High Country models.
The last of the three powerplant options is a 3.0-litre inline-six Duramax turbodiesel, which is an excellent engine for anyone planning to do a lot of towing with their Tahoe. The Duramax produces 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, as much as the 6.2L gas engine but with better fuel economy. Every configuration of the 2024 Tahoe sends its power to the wheels through a standard 10-speed automatic transmission.
Despite the Tahoe using a more traditional ladder-frame platform than car-like crossovers, that doesn’t prevent it from featuring some of the most advanced vehicle technology available. The most affordable trim level, the fleet-friendly Tahoe LS, still comes equipped with standard Automatic Emergency Braking, Automatic Stop/Start, Hitch Guidance, and the 8.0-inch touchscreen Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System with Bluetooth connectivity and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The High Country is a lavishly equipped model with standard equipment that includes HD Surround Vision, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, a rear camera mirror, a 10.2-inch touchscreen, a head-up display, a Bose 10-speaker Surround with CenterPoint audio system, and heated and ventilated front seats. All trim levels, even the borderline-opulent High Country, also have an extensive list of options and upgrade packages that allow you to make your 2024 Tahoe as unique as you are.
The 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe is a superbly versatile, flexible, comfortable, and capable full-size SUV, which can even offer a good helping of off-road capability in its Z71 trim.
