2022 Chevrolet Tahoe for Sale in Springfield, MA
The six trim levels of the 2022 Tahoe are the LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country. The base engine, a 5.3-liter V8 producing 355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, comes standard on all but the High Country, which gets a 420 hp (460 lb.-ft. of torque) 6.2-liter V8; this powerplant is optional on the RST, Z71, and Premier. There’s a diesel-burning alternative as well, a 3.0-liter turbo-powered Duramax V6 (277 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque) that returns the best fuel economy in its class: 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway. It’s an option for all trims except the Z71. The transmission for each engine is a 10-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard on all but the Z71, which gets standard 4WD (it’s available on all of the other trims). The diesel powertrain is the most capable, as it allows the Tahoe to tow as much as 8,200 lb. in conjunction with RWD.
The base Tahoe, the LS, comes with power-adjustable front bucket seats but can be ordered with a front bench instead for those who need to fit nine passengers. It has a fine list of standard features, with the likes of tri-zone automatic climate control, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, a hands-free liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, keyless entry, keyless ignition, 18-inch wheels, and two 120V power outlets. The LT gets leather seats, wireless phone charging, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, six USB ports (two data and four charging), driver’s seat position memory, and a 12.3-inch digital instrumentation cluster.
The RST sports a blacked-out look inside and out, including its 22-inch wheels, while the Z71 is slanted toward off-pavement equipment. Besides standard 4WD, it gets all-terrain tires on 20-inch wheels, a skid plate, recovery hooks, a two-speed transfer case, and hill descent control; it’s also eligible for the electronic limited-slip differential. The Premier doesn’t get those off-road features, but it does add some true comforts such as ventilated front seats, the class-exclusive power-sliding center console, power-adjustable second-row captain’s chairs (capacity drops to seven), and the Magnetic Ride Control adjustable suspension. The top trim, High Country, boasts a 15-inch head-up display (the largest in the class) and 22-inch wheels. All trims but the base LS are eligible for a panoramic sunroof.
Advanced Safety Technology
Chevy includes a nice array of active safety technologies on every Tahoe trim: automatic high beams, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, a following distance indicator, and front and rear parking sensors. The Premier trims also gets lane change alert with side blind-zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert, and the High Country adds a surround-view monitor and rear pedestrian alert. Adaptive cruise control is available on the Premier and High Country. A couple of standard GM features increase the safety factor. Buckle to Drive won’t allow the transmission to shift out of park until both front seatbelts are fastened, and Teen Driver helps to foster better habits in novice drivers by reinforcing their good habits on the road.
Infotainment and Optional Packages
The standard multimedia system uses an 8-inch touchscreen and comes with wireless smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth (for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming), ad Wi-Fi hotspot, and a sound system with six speakers. The LT and above get upgraded to Chevy’s Infotainment 3 Premium version, which can be controlled via its 10.2-inch touchscreen or voice recognition. It also has built-in Google services, SiriusXM satellite radio, high-definition radio, and a Bose sound system with nine speakers. A Bose sound system with ten speakers graces the two highest trim levels, the Premium and High Country.
Quite a few packages are offered to add desirable equipment to the various Tahoe trims. The Advanced Trailering Package adds a trailer brake controller, hitch guidance with hitch view, and a smart trailer integration indicator; trailer side blind-zone alert is also added to the Premier and High Country. The Max Trailering Package takes those features and adds a two-speed active transfer case to the 4WD versions of the LS, LT, and RST, along with an enhanced cooling radiator. There are also two available suspension upgrades: Magnetic Ride Control and Adaptive Air Ride. Magnetic Ride Control is offered for the RST and Z71. It automatically adjusts for optimal handling and ride comfort. The Adaptive Air Ride suspension – a segment first – is optional for the Z71 and High Country. Its electronically controlled air springs adjust in response to road conditions. Buyers of all trims save for the base LS can elect to add a rear entertainment system with twin 12.6-inch screens.
