The fifth generation of the Tahoe was launched last year alongside the new Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon. It received a slew of changes and a complete redesign with modern elements keeping up with the competition. For 2022, the Chevrolet Tahoe will be a carryover model with minimal changes because of the recent update. The new updates have helped the Tahoe earn back its crown, and is one of the best full-size SUVs on the market right now. Moving to the new GMT T1XX has also increased the overall length, liberating more cabin and passenger space. The updates have certainly helped sales figures, with more than 100,000 units shifted annually.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The Tahoe has always been a good family SUV with an excellent cabin and space even at the third row, and the updates have significantly improved it on both fronts. We can expect prices to range from $50,295 for the base LS model and go up to $73,895 for the top-end High Country model. All this puts the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe in direct competition with the likes of Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada, and Toyota Sequoia.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Features

The 2022 Tahoe will be a carryover model so we expect prices to start at $50,395 for the base LS model with standard features like 18-inch alloy wheels, 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, tri-zone climate control, satellite radio, Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, and a host of active safety features including automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking and a lot more.

Upgrading to the LT model adds $5,000 to the base price and includes features like a Bose 9-speaker audio system, 8-way power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, power liftgate, and wireless charging. The sportier RST model starts at $58,395 and adds a lot of sporty elements like a gloss black grille, black roof rails, black emblems, 22-inch alloys, and unique RST-specific seats.

For customers looking to go off-road, the Z71 model is right up their alley with a base price of $60,495 and gets 4-wheel-drive as standard along with off-road-ready features like a heavy-duty air filter, transfer case, recovery hooks, 20-inch all-terrain tires, and a different front end design. The High Country trim sits at the top with a starting price of $69,700 and gets a more powerful 6.2L V8 engine along with 22-inch wheels, 15-inch head-up display, rear pedestrian alert, and an HD surround vision camera.

The Premier model is next in line with a base price of $63,895 and is tuned towards luxury and comfort with standard features like magnetic ride control, 8-inch driver information display, and some advanced safety features like lane change alert, lane keep assist, and a lot more. 

We Recommend

We recommend going for the LT trim as it not only can be had under $60,000 but also gets nifty standard features over the base trim. Features like 18-inch alloy wheels are standard that can be upgraded to 20-inch wheels. The front and rear seats get leather upholstery while the third row gets vinyl upholstery. 

Price

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is expected to come in six trims and prices will start at $50,295 for the base LS 2WD trim and will go up to $73,895 for the topmost High Country 4WD trim.

Release Date

Although Chevrolet hasn’t announced an official release date yet, we can expect the 2022 model to reach showrooms by late 2021.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Engine and Performance

For 2022, we expect the Chevrolet Tahoe to get the same powertrains including the new turbo diesel engine. There is a more efficient Hybrid powertrain in the works, but that might be reserved for next year. The 2022 Tahoe will come as standard with a 5.3L naturally aspirated V8 engine which produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The more powerful 6.2L V8 engine producing 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque is still available as an option along with the recently introduced 3.0L Duramax diesel engine which produces an impressive 460 lb-ft of torque. 

All engine options are paired with a slick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission and send power to the rear wheels. 4-wheel-drive comes standard on the Z71 trim and is available as an option on the rest of the line-up. The standard 5.3L engine-equipped models sprint from 0-60 MPH in 7.5 seconds and cross the quarter-mile in 15.8 seconds, while the more powerful 6.2L engine takes just 5.9 seconds to do 0-60 MPH and crosses the quarter-mile in 14.3 seconds. 

As expected, the 3.0L Duramax engine is the slowest of the bunch, taking 8 seconds to reach 0-60 mph and more than 16 seconds to cross the quarter-mile. The Nissan Armada with its big V8 engine is the fastest of the bunch, taking just 5.9 seconds to reach 0-60 mph, followed closely by the Ford Expedition with a time of 6.2 seconds. The Toyota Sequoia is the slowest among all taking 7.1- seconds to go from 0-60 mph.

The updates have also improved the overall handling and dynamics thanks to the independent rear suspension which replaces the solid rear axle. The new suspension setup has also improved comfort and flattens out undulations on the road. The steering offers decent feedback, and the updated suspension does reduce body lean to a certain extent but the Tahoe is far from sporty.

The optional air springs and adaptive dampers further improve comfort and handling but come as standard only on the top-end Premier and High Country trims. That said, the base 5.3L models can tow up to 8,400 pounds with the max trailering package, while the 3.0L Duramax engine is limited to 8,200 pounds.

Speaking of the performance on offer the Nissan Armada has the most powerful engine putting out 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Next comes Toyota Sequoia with 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque on offer followed by the Ford Expedition whose twin-turbo engine puts out 375 hp and a healthy 470 lb-ft of torque. While the Chevrolet Tahoe’s naturally aspirated 5.3-liter V8 puts out a paltry 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Fuel Economy

Since no changes to the powertrain are expected for 2022, we expect the 2021 model's EPA ratings of 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, which was average for its class, to be what the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe would return. The massive 24-gallon fuel tank gives it a combined range of 500 plus miles, which we feel is decent for doing long distances. That said, the new 3.0L diesel engine is the most efficient with ratings of 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

As for the rivals, the Ford Expedition is the most efficient with 17/24/20 mpg of fuel economy in city/highway/combined respectively thanks to its more modern powertrain, followed by the Chevrolet Tahoe which is rated at 16/20/18 mpg respectively. The aging powertrain of the Nissan Armada reflects its fuel economy figures of 14/19/16 mpg but the Toyota Sequoia does even worse and returns 13/17/15 mpg of fuel economy respectively.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Interior

Build quality has significantly improved with soft-touch materials used liberally inside the cabin. The floating infotainment display sits at the top with plenty of functionality, while the rest of the controls are buried under the center vents, giving a clean and minimalist look. Plenty of wood trims cover the dashboard and door trims, with the RST model getting unique seats and grey inserts. All the controls are easy to access and ergonomically placed and include plenty of steering wheel controls. Surprisingly, the center console is devoid of any switchgear and gets a wireless charging pad with two integrated cup holders. This translates to a barrage of buttons to the left including the oddly placed parking brake switch. 

Moving to the new platform has significantly improved the cabin space with more than 10-inches liberated for the third-row passengers, allowing even adults to sit comfortably. The second row also offers sliding adjustment, further improving practicality. There are plenty of creature comforts on offer including power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation function, Keyless ignition, optional second-row bucket seats with heating, wireless charging, dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and a lot more. The base LS model can be equipped with a 40/20/40 split-bench seat at the front, increasing passenger capacity up to 9.

The interior space on offer is the best in Chevrolet Tahoe followed by Ford Expedition. The Nissan Armada comes next with a decent amount of space in all three rows had it not been for the lesser headroom in the third row the Armada would have grabbed the third spot here. That said, the Toyota Sequoia is the least spacious and cramped especially in the third-row seats. The cargo capacity of the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoes stands at an impressive 25.5 cubic feet with all the seats up. While the Ford Expedition boasts of the next best 19.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity followed by Toyota Sequoia with 18.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Nissan Armada disappoints a lot with a tiny 16.5 cubic feet of cargo area.

The Tahoe gets a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with plenty of features on offer including wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, Alexa built-in with voice recognition, satellite and HD radio, a premium Bose audio system, and an optional rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch displays. Higher trims also get a 15-inch head-up display for added convenience. Among the rivals, the Expedition seems to have the most balanced and feature-laden interior. However, the Tahoe isn’t too far behind. Some notable interior features of the Tahoe include:

  • Power adjustable front seats with memory function
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • 10.2-inch infotainment system
  • Wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto
  • Enhanced voice control with Alexa built-in
  • Bluetooth with two active devices
  • Navigation
  • 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Rear seat entertainment with dual 12.6-inch displays
  • Chevrolet connected access

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Exterior

With the recent update, the Tahoe received a significant redesign with a boxy front-end inspired by the Silverado pickup truck. All models get LED headlights with unique DRLs and a bold front grille with the Chevrolet badge in the middle. For 2022, the Tahoe will continue to get the same design with minimal updates. The boxy design extends to the rear with a strong shoulder line extending from the headlights to the rear. 

Higher trims also get quad exit exhausts with chrome tips. The off-road-focused Z71 model gets a unique front end with a different grille and bumper design and other off-road-ready elements including red recovery hooks and roof rails, while the sporty RST model gets a gloss black grille and badges. The bigger footprint has significantly improved cargo space, with 25.5 cubic feet on offer even with all the seats up.

Dimensionally, all of these SUVs are huge, and as expected maneuverability isn’t their forte. However, due to the exterior design, the Tahoe seems less bulky than the competitors resulting in a sportier appearance. Speaking of dimensions, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe will be 210.7-inches in length, 75.8-inches high, and get a 120.9-inches of wheelbase. Compared to that, the rivals Ford Expedition and Nissan Armada are similar in size. While the Toyota Sequoia is smaller among all but manages an above-average 122-inches of wheelbase and the highest ground clearance of 9.9-inches. Some notable exterior features include:

  • LED headlights across the range
  • 22-inch alloy wheels
  • Dual-pane panoramic sunroof
  • Vertical LED taillights
  • Unique off-road-ready design for the Z71 model
  • Silver roof-rails
  • Quad exit exhausts

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Safety

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe hasn’t been crash-tested yet but since there is no mechanical or architectural change in the Tahoe we expect the 2021 Tahoe’s rating to continue. The 2021 Tahoe received a 4 out of 5-star overall rating in the NHTSA safety tests. The rollover test received the least score of just 3 stars. The IISH hasn’t crash-tested the 2021 Tahoe yet, but we can expect good ratings since it uses the same platform as the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck which performed well.

The 2022 Tahoe is well equipped with plenty of active safety features as standard. The higher trims also get lane change alert, lane-keep assist, front and rear park assist, rear pedestrian alert, and safety alert seat. Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, front pedestrian braking, tire pressure monitoring, etc. Some highlights of the 2022 Tahoes safety features include:

  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Following distance indicator
  • Forward collision warning
  • Front pedestrian braking
  • Rear park assist
  • HD rearview camera
  • Teen driver technology
  • OnStar safety and security coverage

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Competition

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe vs 2022 Ford Expedition

Both the Tahoe and Expedition received a whole host of updates recently, and for 2022, the Expedition is expected to get even more interior updates including a brand new infotainment system and more. But the Expedition is limited to just one engine option while the Tahoe gets several including an efficient turbo diesel engine. Overall, the Ford Expedition still makes a compelling choice especially with the new updates, better mileage, and power and torque figures than the Tahoe.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe vs 2022 Toyota Sequoia

The Toyota Sequoia may not be a big and bulky SUV compared to the Tahoe but it gets its basics spot on and a powerful engine under its hood. But what lets it down is its poor fuel economy, below-average interior space, and cargo area. Now anyone looking to buy a big SUV has these three things on its top priority thus the Sequoia is at a disadvantage against the Tahoe in this comparison.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe vs 2022 Nissan Armada

Like the Tahoe, the Nissan Armada also received several updates recently including new exterior design and feature updates. The Armada still uses the old V8 engine but is more powerful than the Tahoe with better towing capacity. It also gets a more luxurious and feature-rich interior compared to the Tahoe. Options are limited for the Armada, but it still makes sense, especially in the base trim. The Tahoe on the other hand offers a lot more flexibility and includes a diesel engine option. Overall, the Tahoe is the better SUV if intended purely for family use.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Final Verdict

Because of the recent update, the Chevrolet Tahoe continues to be one of the best full-size SUVs on the market with a roomy cabin and comfortable seating in all three rows. The 2022 Tahoe will be a carryover model with minimal updates. Recent additions like the efficient turbo diesel engine have made it even more popular than before. Overall, the Chevrolet Tahoe is still one of the best full-size SUVs on the market for customers looking for a spacious and comfortable SUV with decent performance and towing capacity all at a bargain price tag.
