Nobody can deny the size of the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe when they see one in Regina, Moose Jaw, Emerald Park, or anywhere in Southern Saskatchewan. However, despite its truck-based platform that delivers capability crossovers can only dream of, the latest Tahoe is better to drive and more agile than most rivals of similar dimensions. Add into the mix a big helping of the latest technology and a broad lineup of configuration options, and it’s hard to think of what the 2024 Tahoe can’t handle.
This year sees a few modest changes to the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe. Silver Sage Metallic, Sterling Gray Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat are three new exterior paint options. A black grille option is available that sees the traditional Bowtie logo replaced by capital letters spelling out the brand name, and Premier and High Country models are now available with GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving feature.
The lineup still kicks off with the entry-level LS model and then goes to the LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and range-topping High Country. The LS and LT trim levels are standard rear-wheel drive, but they are available with all-wheel drive at extra cost. The other four trim levels get all-wheel drive as part of their standard specification.
It’s not unusual for some large SUVs to stick with a single powerplant across their lineups, but Chevrolet spoils prospective Tahoe owners with a trio of excellent powertrain options. The standard engine found under the hood of every model except the High Country is a 5.3-litre gas V-8 that provides the 2024 Tahoe with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. The second engine option is a potent 6.2-litre gas V-8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque available.
The last of the trio will probably appeal to those who want to do a lot of towing with their Tahoe because it’s a diesel. The unit in question is a 3.0-litre inline-six Duramax turbodiesel that produces a relatively modest 277 horsepower but the same 460 lb.-ft. of torque as the 6.2. Regardless of trim level, engine, or drivetrain, every 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe sends the power to the wheels through a standard 10-speed automatic transmission.
The truck-based platform of the Tahoe is a more traditional construction than car-like crossovers, but that doesn’t prevent the mighty Chevy from offering a raft of the very latest features and technology. Even the entry-level Tahoe LS gets standard Automatic Emergency Braking, Automatic Stop/Start, Hitch Guidance, and the 8.0-inch touchscreen Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
At the other end of the range, the High Country features standard 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 models, including the High Country, also offer an extensive list of options and upgrade packages.
The 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe is an outstanding full-size SUV that seats up to eight people, and the only thing it isn’t up for is squeezing into the tightest of parking spaces.
