The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2022 Chevrolet Suburban are poised to get a few new mechanical features across three additional trims, along with a new larger digital instrument cluster that is now standard on LT trims and higher. There is also a new electronic limited-slip differential option that improves the capability and driver confidence behind the wheel of the Tahoe Z71 and Suburban Z71 Off-Road capable SUV models.
2022 Chevrolet Tahoe And Suburban: Mechanical Updates
The much-desired 6.2L L87 V8 engine with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque that came standard on the High Country is now available for the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban RST, Z71, and Premier trims. The 5.3L L84 V8 that produces 355 horsepower is otherwise still standard on the LS, LT, Z71, RST, and Premier trims. In contrast, nothing has changed from last year regarding the 3.0L LM2 Duramax turbo-diesel availability.
The engine updates could have been in rebuttal to the 2022 Ford Expedition that debuted last week. which has a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that produces 440 horsepower, making it the most powerful engine in its class.
The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe RST and 2022 Chevrolet Suburban RST ordered with the 6.2L V8 also gain Magnetic Ride Control 4.0, one of the industry’s fastest-dampening systems. The Ride Control comes standard on Premier and High Country trims and is available for the Z71. In addition, if you purchase the off-road-focused Z71 trim, you now have an available electronic limited-slip differential that detects if there is wheel slippage on either side of the vehicle. The eLSD then reacts and quickly shifts power to the wheel with better traction giving drivers more confidence in various types of road conditions. The eLSD can also be used in 4WD low to help prevent wheel slip on more rugged terrain, making it ideal for off-roading conditions.
2022 Chevrolet Suburban And Tahoe: Updated Technology
The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban will now have an available 13 camera views, including a transparent trailer view that allows the driver to virtually “see-through” a connected, compatible trailer. There is also a rear trailer view, picture-in-picture side view, and a view inside a trailer when an accessory camera is connected.
A 12.3-inch diagonal configurable digital instrument cluster is now standard on LT trims and above for the Tahoe and Suburban. The cluster offers four user-selectable layouts to display information relevant to whose behind the vehicle’s wheel at the time. In addition, Google is now built-in and standard on LT trims and above, giving drivers access to Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play. The experience is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
These 2022 Tahoe and Suburban model year updates largely reflect what we see with the 2022 GMC Yukon family, as well. Production of the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban begins this fall, via the Arlington Assembly plant in Texas.
