Now in its fourth generation, the Chevrolet Tahoe remains as America’s best-selling full-size SUV. One reason is the Tahoe’s exceptional capability, with the power to tow up to 8,400 pounds, enough to tow a boat or a trailer without breaking a sweat. According to the Spokane Valley Chevy dealer, the Tahoe is very popular with off-roaders, thanks to its ability to handle even the toughest off-road terrains. The Tahoe has rugged good looks, too, making it the ideal SUV for buyers looking for a full-size SUV. Anyone who is considering a truck-based SUV should place the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe at the top of their shopping list.
The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe is available in three trim levels at dealerships like the Chevrolet dealer near Spokane Valley: LS, LT and Premier. All models have standard seating for eight and are powered by a standard 5.3-liter V8 that makes 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, teamed to a six-speed automatic transmission. This engine features Active Cylinder Management, which saves fuel by shutting down half the cylinders when the Tahoe reaches cruising speeds. Rear-wheel drive is standard on all models and four-wheel drive is optional.
We’ll take a look at the Tahoe’s trim levels and see what each one brings to the table.
