    2022 Suburban & Tahoe Get More Power and Added Technology

    CarProUSA Radio show host Jerry Reynolds is a huge fan of the redesigned Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, both of which were all-new for 2021. Chevy isn't content to leave it at that, however, and is expanding its popular 6.2L V8 engine to more trims and adding more tech to both SUVS for 2022.  Added technology includes more mechanical options, infotainment improvements and additional standard active safety features.  New colors will be available, too, with the addition of Evergreen Gray Metallic, Auburn Metallic and Dark Ash Metallic hues. 

    “Tahoe and Suburban customers keep coming back thanks to the capability, space and technology these vehicles bring to every road trip or daily drive,” said Kelly MacDonald, director, Chevrolet Truck Marketing. “Chevrolet keeps innovating with these popular full-size SUVs, and it’s part of the formula that makes them segment leaders.”

    Expanded 6.2L V-8 engine availability and new eLSD option


    For customers looking for power, the popular 6.2L V-8 engine rated at 420-horsepower is now available on the RST, Z71 and Premier. The 6.2L engine is standard on the High Country. This engine comes with dual exhaust and features Dynamic Fuel Management technology, designed to optimize engine efficiency across a broad range of driving conditions, including when towing a trailer. When the RST is ordered with the 6.2L V-8, customers also gain Magnetic Ride Control, one of the fastest-reacting damping systems in the industry. Magnetic Ride Control is standard on Premier and High Country and available on Z71.

    The 5.3L V-8 remains the standard engine on LS, LT, Z71, RST and Premier models. The optional Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel is available on all models except Z71. All engines are mated to a standard 10-speed automatic transmission with push-button electronic shift.

    New for 2022, the available electronic limited slip differential draws on sports car DNA to deliver improved driving performance in a full-size SUV. If wheel slip is detected on either side of the vehicle, eLSD reacts quickly to shift power to the wheel with better traction. That additional traction can contribute to increased driver confidence in difficult types of terrain and weather conditions. Available on the off-road focused Z71 trim, eLSD also can be used in 4WD Low to help prevent wheelslip in dirt and mud.

    Enhanced trailering tech and larger driver cluster


    Technology gets a boost, too. For 2022, Tahoe and Suburban will now offer up to 13 available, unique camera views, including a transparent trailer view that helps the driver virtually “see through” a connected, compatible trailer when the truck is properly equipped. Additional new trailering views include a rear trailer view, a picture-in-picture side view, and a view inside a trailer when an accessory camera is connected.

    A new, larger 12.3-inch-diagonal configurable digital instrument cluster is now standard on 2022 Tahoe and Suburban for LT trims and above.  Four user-selectable layouts can be customized.
