Although first introduced in 1995, the modern Chevy Tahoe has been in its fourth generation since 2015 and shows no signs of stopping. The 2019 Chevy Tahoe may be the last year for this generation, but it is certainly going out with a bang and setting the standard very high for what's to come in the future.
This is a full-size SUV, so it definitely commands attention and gives the driver full domination over the road. Smaller SUVs might be a better fit for some people, but the Tahoe provides a ton of interior space for passengers, cargo, or both. You might need to make some room in your life for this beauty, but we think it is well worth clearing out a little space in your garage to fit it in (and what could be a better excuse to finally clean out the garage?).
Features on the 2019 Chevy Tahoe include a new paint color not previously available and an interior designed for optimal functionality and comfort. There are a ton of great tech options available as well, which have become more important to all of us over the last decade, plus a wide range of safety features to make sure you, your passengers, and everyone else stays safe. You can even choose from a couple special editions if you really want to push luxury and beauty to the limit, and who doesn't?
When people think about cars or trucks and the term "power," they often picture high-speed muscle cars and sports cars cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway. But a full-size SUV like the 2019 Chevy Tahoe should also be a powerful vehicle that drivers are happy to brag about - and fortunately, the Tahoe doesn't shy away from delivering serious power and excellent performance. You need that strength under the hood for lugging around heavy loads, lots of passengers, or campers and trailers for a long weekend of grilling and fun.
In the standard 2019 Chevy Tahoe, you get a 5.3L V8 engine that offers 355-hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. That's important considering how massive the Tahoe truly is: keep in mind that this is an SUV that measures more than 6 feet in height and is 17-feet long from nose to tail! While that can be a lot of vehicle to take out on the road, the power of the V8 engine makes controlling the 2019 Chevy Tahoe a lot easier than you might first imagine - and gives you more than 8,000 lbs. of towing capacity. The fuel economy of the Tahoe, at 22 MPG on the highway, is about as good as you can find in this class of SUV, which can save you money compared to some other models.
But if you need even more power, don't fret, Chevy has you covered. The 2019 Chevy Tahoe RST Edition offers an available 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine that gives you 420-hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, along with a 10-speed automatic transmission. You can choose all of this power and performance without sacrificing any of the luxury and comfort that the standard Tahoe has to offer.
Sitting in a full-size SUV should be an experience unlike anything else on the road. All that space creates the potential for so many comfort and luxury options, yet too often you'll see manufacturers just letting it go to waste. That's why it is such a joy to look at everything on the inside of the 2019 Chevy Tahoe and realize it was designed and built by people who wanted to enjoy it as much as we do!
There is an available 8-inch display that provides information for the driver and front-seat passenger, and it is reconfigurable for ease of use to make sure you can always get the information you want. The driver's instrument display is nice and large, relaying information clearly to you at a glance. There are also numerous controls on the leather-wrapped steering wheel that let you easily make adjustments without taking your hands off the wheel.
You can comfortably seat up to nine people in the 2019 Chevy Tahoe, including the driver, and everyone can stay as comfortable as possible thanks to available heated second-row seats. The driver's seat and front passenger seat also include available 12-way adjustable heating and ventilation to stay either warm or cool in just about any climate. There is even a 110V power adapter connection in the rear so that anyone can easily charge their devices.
The second and third-row seats can fold down for a ton of interior room: more than 94 cu. ft. of cargo space is available. The third row folds flat to make it easy to load up anything you want. The power liftgate is even programmable, so you can set it to just the right height for easy loading and unloading of cargo. All of this comes together for a perfect interior for a night out with friends, taking family on a trip, or just getting around town.
When you look at the 2019 Chevy Tahoe you not only want to see what great features it has to offer but how it fits into your life and makes things easier. That all starts with the available 8-inch touchscreen display that is customizable and offers all the information you need while driving. The screen raises up to reveal a hidden storage compartment, which is lockable and includes a USB port. There is even phone integration with the display and information center so that you can easily access and configure your settings.
The available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot functionality lets you keep all your devices connected without worrying about data rates or fees. This is ideal for streaming any type of media, whether it's your favorite song through the Bose speaker system or video playing on the available rear-seat entertainment system with 9-inch display. You also get compatibility with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so no matter what platform you prefer, the Tahoe is ready for you.
And don't worry about keeping all of your devices charged and running. The 2019 Chevy Tahoe can come with up to seven USB ports, along with a 110V three-prong outlet and multiple 12V outlets. There is even an available wireless charging station that lets you keep compatible devices charged without the worry of remembering any cables. Not to mention Bluetooth connectivity with up to two active devices for audio streaming.
For many of us, the single most important details about any vehicle we consider buying is how safe it is. This is including what the manufacturer has done to keep people inside it safe if a collision does happen and whatever means of avoiding accidents altogether. Great vehicle safety comes down to two things: prevent as many collisions as possible from happening, protect passengers when an unavoidable accident does occur. The 2019 Chevy Tahoe is clearly built around these two concepts and delivers on both of them.
Prevention is achieved through numerous features designed to give the driver more information about the road and conditions around you than ever before. Forward collision detection alerts the driver when a vehicle in front of the Tahoe is slowing unexpectedly, and can be adjusted for far, medium, or near detection.
The rear vision camera allows for optimal visibility behind the 2019 Chevy Tahoe. This is provided with rear cross traffic alerts and rear-park assist that alerts you when an object is near the back of the Tahoe or crossing behind while the vehicle is in reverse. You can even set these alerts to vibrate the driver's seat, rather than make an audible noise, if you so desire.
Protection is achieved through a few different innovations in the 2019 Chevy Tahoe. A low-speed forward automatic braking system is used to automatically apply the brakes when the vehicle detects a collision is going to occur at less than 50 mph. This can reduce the severity of an impact at low speeds, and may even help avoid a collision a driver did not otherwise realize was about to occur.
There are also at least seven airbags that create a cushion to reduce the severity of an impact on those within the Chevy Tahoe. The Tahoe itself is built with a steel frame to wrap around and protect everyone inside the vehicle. Should the unthinkable happen, this is a vehicle designed to keep what's most important to you safe.
