2019 Chevy Tahoe Custom Edition Redesign, Release Date, Price, & Spy Shots – Adhering to in the footsteps of the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 Custom edition will come the 2019 Chevy Tahoe Custom. What is the Custom edition Chevrolet truck or SUV all about? In quick, it is about getting value and utility for an entry level truck. We took a Tahoe Custom for a first drive review with a trailer full of off-road playthings (Polaris RZR XP1000s) to get out a lot more.
The Tahoe Custom is identified by a chrome grille and Z71-style rims, although there are no badges that announce it as a Custom edition. It is the only Tahoe in the recent lineup with just two rows of seats and 5-man or woman capacity. It can not include a thirdly-row seat choice. Getting rid of the next row allows for a little much better cargo volume and a decrease packing floor in the back. The seats are a towel, but there are chrome and wooden-like accents all around the dash and middle gaming system.
The Tahoe Custom 2WD has a starting price of $44,995 (including destination charges). At first it may sound like a lot of funds for an entry-level Tahoe, however, it is $2,200 lower than a Tahoe LS, and it is the least expensive starting price amongst the competition: Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada, and Toyota Sequoia. There is just one powertrain available in the Custom, it’s the 5.3L V8 (355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque) and a 6-speed automatic transmission. You could have to choose other GM SUV choices to purchase an 8-speed or 10-speed automatic with the larger and much more powerful 6.2L V8.
It is also available with a 4×4 system (without a low-range exchange case) for an extra $3,000 and an overall MSRP of $47,995. Other noteworthy features include Apple Carplay, Android Auto, 4G LTE Wifi hotspot, Onstar Navigation, and tri-zone air conditioning system. You can supply the Tahoe Custom with a highest trailering package that accompanies a built-in brake control and a complete trailers capacity of 8,600 lbs. Chevrolet and Polaris prepared the trailer for us to use at this Nevada celebration. It is a Polaris Trailer with two 2018 RZR XP1000 Turbo DYNAMIX side-by-ends on top. Estimated loaded trailer bodyweight is 4,500 lbs, but we had been not able to verify it on our own. We towed the off-road devices from Las Vegas to Jean Nevada, to lunch or dinner, and back to Vegas.
This Tahoe’s 5.3L V8 was not strained by the 4,500 lbs trailer behind it, but there seemed to be some excessive up-and-down motion coming from the rear suspension of the Tahoe. It had been just noticeable over highway development joints. Possibly, a bodyweight submission hitch (WDH) would solve some of the extra jump (yet again, we did not set up this trailer). Usually, the Tahoe is an easy and tranquil towing vehicle. The transmission up changes easily, the Tow/Haul mode helps to sluggish the vehicle down with prompt downshifts. I constantly felt comfortable and in control behind the wheel and with the two “Razors” in tow. Navigating our way by means of the Las Vegas Strip, I wished the Tahoe Custom presented larger towing side mirrors. The smaller wall mirrors are sleek and do not make much noise at highway speeds, but if you prepare to tow regularly – a larger (vertical orientation) side match is recommended. Chevy provides great towing mirrors on their Silverado pickup trucks.
