What to Expect with the 2018 Tahoe

The Chevy Tahoe was completely redesigned in 2015 and received technology tweaks in 2016 and 2017. As far as 2018 goes, there’s a chance that there will be further tech tweaks and trim changes, but overall the model is expected to stay the same.

The body, particularly, should remain the same, which is a good thing considering its modern and clear-cut looks. The seating will be the same, allowing up to nine people to ride along inside with comfort and space.

Standard features should include tri-zone auto climate control, a 10-way power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a teen-driver monitoring system, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, built-in power outlet, and six-speaker audio system.

The powertrain is likely to remain completely unchanged, but it’s still relatively modern as Chevy debuted it just a few years ago. The current model uses a 5.3-liter V8 that cranks out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. This engine pairs with a six-speed auto, though an upgrade to an eight- or 10-speed automatic could come in a few years. All this adds up to a hefty 8,600-pound towing capacity when properly equipped.

The IIHS has yet to rate the 2017 Tahoe, but in NHTSA testing, it received a four-star overall rating. The current Tahoe does offer the latest in vehicular safety, like forward collision warning, low-speed auto emergency braking, lane departure warning and intervention, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring.

GM hasn’t announced a release date yet for the 2018 Chevy Tahoe. However, production is estimated to begin in August 2017, which would likely result in an on-sale date in September.
