2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST

The 2017 New York International Auto Show brought a sneak peek of the upcoming Chevrolet Tahoe, much to the pleasure of enthusiasts from around the country. The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST brings plenty of cosmetic changes as well as a new powertrain. The RST, Rally Sport Truck, is designed to go fast and look good at the same time.

The Tahoe RST brings body-colored and blacked-out trim as well as 22-inch wheels. Fortunately, that’s not all the new model brings to the road: the full-size SUV packs the L86 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to a 10-speed transmission as well.

The powertrain comes as a part of the Performance Package, which includes available four-wheel drive and a recalibrated suspension. While Chevrolet hasn’t released performance numbers just yet, estimates sit at around 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The automaker claims the Tahoe RST will smash 60 mph in less than 6 seconds, and that it can tow up to 8,400 pounds when properly equipped.

Drivers who don’t want to pay out of pocket for the performance package will enjoy an available Borla exhaust that boosts power output from the 5.3-liter V8 engine.

Chevrolet hasn’t released pricing information for the 2018 Tahoe RST just yet, but keep your eyes open! The new model rolls out in fall 2017.

We here at Hanner Chevrolet are pumped to get behind the wheel of such a powerful SUV!
