Chevy is unveiling their newest creations. Among those is their flagship SUV, the freshly-redesigned 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST. Tahoe is a full-size SUV that can seat up to eight passengers without issues. A detachable third row can allow for some options when it comes to cargo space. Tahoe has some fierce competition since there are a lot of full-size, three rows SUVs.
Upcoming changes are mainly concerned with smaller tweaks. This includes more color packages, better technology, and an updated powertrain. Perhaps better mechanical parts to improve steering and driving. The biggest addition to the previous Chevy Tahoe is the Super Cruise. Adding this feature is only available on higher trims, namely Premier and High Country. It costs a lot but we believe it is a good bang for your buck. For those who don’t know, Super Cruise is unique hands-free assistance that allows drivers to travel hands-free on over 200 000 miles of compatible roads in the US. Bigger tweaks and more redesign will be available in the 2024 model year.
For now, let us dig deep into the review to see what is in store for us with the 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST.
What is RST Package on Tahoe?
The refreshed 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST is on the bigger side when it comes to SUVs. It is a full-size three-row beast, that comes with adaptive Magnetic Ride Control air ride suspension. It has a huge front grille made from lightweight materials to save some weight. Wheel alloys are also lightweight so they can shave much-needed weight. By doing this Chevy improves power to weight ratio and improves the performance and drive and overall control of the SUV.
The wheels are 22-inch sterling silver with chrome. Tires that are standard can be driven through all four seasons and they have wheel locks. There is a lane change alert and blind side zone alert, thanks to cameras and sensors around the Tahoe. The grille is quite big, in order to let air under the hood. This keeps everything in the engine department cool and you can push your SUV to the limit. The body has some curves in order to improve aerodynamics and ergonomics. This in return makes fuel economy much better.
Sporty and Roomy Interior
On the inside, the 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST looks amazing. Even Though it doesn’t have the price tag of a super expensive Grand Wagoneer, it sure has the looks and luxury of it. There are leather and chrome accents all along with the cabin. In fact, leather is used to cover the instrument panel, inside of the doors, and many other parts of the interior. Even the steering wheel is lined with fine leather.
There are of course some buttons on the steering wheel to change settings without taking your eyes off the road. This improves the safety aspect and keeps you focused. There will definitely be other safety systems implemented. We would like to see collision alerts, pedestrian detection, and other similar software. Artificial intelligence like this improves safety and keeps everyone on the road much safer.
The look of the cabin is not fully minimalistic, there are buttons and knobs to control air conditioning and other technology. There is a central infotainment system on the instrument panel. It is 12 inches in size and should be just big enough to let everyone join in on the fun, even the third row of people. Seats are cushioned and padded, which simply screams comfort on long rides. In addition to that, you can choose the preferred material to line the seats. There is leather, suede, and fabric along with contrast stitching. The verdict is not final on available colors for the interior so we have to wait and see, all we know is there are more than several options. Ambient lighting is also available in the 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST.
A panoramic roof will ensure some breathtaking views while on starry night rides. Also, you can let some sunshine in. The center console between driver and passenger can slide. Which allows for more space. Tahoe also prides itself on extra legroom for second and third rows, which are often overlooked and lack legroom. The seats are also foldable and detachable so you won’t have any problem hauling furniture or something of similar size.
We should also mention that the dashboard is all digital which is excellent. And the biggest selling point is of course the Super Cruise. This software allows people to go hands-free on over 200 000 miles of US roads. This artificial intelligence is state of the art and really a step towards the future. Many people agree that this software is much safer for driving long distances and will ensure a collision-free environment.
