2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Interior Features

CATEGORIES »

An all-time favorite and one of the brand's bestsellers, the latest edition of the Chevrolet Tahoe is quite the SUV. We're familiar with its imposing exterior, versatility, and passenger accommodations, but the interior of this year's edition really surprised us. For 2022, Chevrolet decided to tweak the SUV's interior and make it more roomy, comfortable, and alluring. Here at Jim Tubman Chevrolet, we want you to know all about the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe interior features, so you can decide whether it's a good fit for you.

 

Comfort and Seating Capacity

2022-chevrolet-tahoe-seating-ottawa-on (1)The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is officially the largest in the lineup and is more spacious than its rivals. If you own or have ridden in a Chevrolet Tahoe, you may already know that the SUV's third row was a bit confined. But this year's edition features ten more inches in that row, giving third-row passengers as much legroom as those in the first and second rows. This full-size SUV can now seat seven to nine adults comfortably.

What's more, Chevrolet has made it possible to slide the second-row seats, so when you're passing by a picturesque zone in the Ottawa, Ontario, area, your passengers can have more flexibility. This year's Tahoe has also made accessing the third row easier now that passengers can use the grab handles. Although the exact dimensions for the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe depend on the trim level you choose, you can still expect it to have a roomy and comfortable cabin perfect for you and the rest of your passengers.

In short, with the newest Chevrolet Tahoe, you don't need to worry about space because it's all about making you and your passengers feel comfortable during short and long-distance rides. So much so that even the tallest adults can climb in, sit, and enjoy a long-distance trip without problems. Some trim levels come with an impressive panoramic sunroof you can enjoy without affecting your headroom. All 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe trim levels feature an eight-way adjustable passenger's seat, a ten-way adjustable driver's seat, cloth upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Depending on the trim level, some features include a ten-way power-adjustable passenger seat, 12-way adjustable and ventilated front-row seats, leather upholstery, heated second-row seats, driver's seat memory settings, a heated and power tilt-telescoping steering wheel, and heated front-row seats.

If you need a child-friendly SUV and you're thinking of installing child safety assets, this version of the Chevrolet Tahoe comes with a full set of LATCH connectors for the second-row seats and tether anchors for the third-row seats.

Cargo Capacity

2022-chevrolet-tahoe-cargo-ottawa-onThe 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is the largest and most spacious SUV in its class — there's no competitor to match its impressive cargo capacity. With the power-folding third-row seats up, you get 25.5 cubic feet of space. But if you fold them down, which we recommend, you end up with 72.6 cubic feet, giving you a much larger cargo space that can easily fit around six carry-on suitcases. If you need more space, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe stands at 122.9 cubic feet of cargo space with all the rear seats folded, making it the most practical full-size SUV on the market.

The SUV has many other useful features, such as the hands-free power liftgate. And if you ever need to transport a heavy trailer, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe has an impressive 5.3-liter V-8 engine, giving it a towing capacity of up to 8,400 pounds.

Infotainment and Connectivity

2022-chevrolet-tahoe-tech-ottawa-onThe 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe's infotainment and connectivity system is as impressive as the rest of the SUV. All models have a wide variety of standard features, including a 10-inch media touch screen, a six-speaker Bluetooth stereo, a Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite radio, HD radio, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The 2022 Tahoe also has optional infotainment and connectivity features, including wireless device charging, navigation, a second-row entertainment system, a nine-speaker Bose stereo, a ten-speaker Bose surround-sound stereo, and a universal garage door opener.

Don't worry if you don't see yourself as tech-savvy because anyone can use the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe's touch screen infotainment system. It has an easy, user-friendly interface that is conveniently located for the driver's comfort and has a lot of physical control knobs to guide you.

It's worth mentioning that higher trim levels boast an even better infotainment system, with available Google Voice Assistant and Google Maps, and the media touch screen has crisper and richer graphics.

Essentially, all these infotainment and connectivity features make it possible for your passengers to enjoy a good movie or TV show while on a road trip. Thanks to the Wi-Fi hotspot, they can now play any media directly from their smartphones.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

During crash tests, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe received four out of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The SUV comes with advanced driver-assistance technology and new safety features. Please keep in mind that only a few of these features are standard, so if you want access to all of them, you'll need to purchase optional packages, such as the Driver Alert package.

Check your model's available safety and driver-assistance features before purchasing a package, as higher trim levels come standard with many package-only features. Some features available in all trim levels include seven airbags, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, cross traffic alert, teen driver technology, automated emergency braking, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning.

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is a great option if you want a spacious SUV with the latest technology and gadgets. Here at Jim Tubman Chevrolet, we're committed to helping you find your dream vehicle. Whether it's the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe or any other Chevrolet vehicle, we're here to help you.

5 Best Cars for Winter in Canada

There are many reasons to love winter in Canada, but driving on icy or snow-packed roads may not be one of them. When you need to dig out your car and make it to work after a massive snowstorm, you'll want to have a vehicle you can trust to get the job done. Whether you prefer to drive an all-wheel-drive sedan or a powerhouse pickup truck, there's a winter-friendly vehicle to fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget. Here are five of the best cars you can drive during the winter in Canada.

 

Chevrolet Silverado

2022-chevrolet-silverado-ottawa-onIt's no secret that pickup trucks typically outperform smaller vehicles in severe winter weather. Chevrolet's flagship truck, the Silverado, can get you where you need to go, even during a severe snowstorm. This powerful truck offers a range of engine options, including a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine designed for optimal performance and maximum efficiency. This engine produces 460 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 13,300 pounds. With the Silverado's impressive towing capabilities, you can even hook up a snowplow to clear your street after a brutal snowstorm. Choose a Silverado with four-wheel drive for enhanced traction on slippery roads.

The Chevrolet Silverado also comes loaded with advanced safety and driver assistance features to keep you safe on winter roads. New models come standard with Chevy Safety Assist, which includes features such as forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. These features can help improve your visibility and prevent potential collisions while driving in poor conditions.

Subaru Outback

With standard all-wheel drive, the Subaru Outback is a winter-ready SUV. Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system provides optimized traction in snow or rain by evaluating real-time data to deliver power continuously to all four wheels. When one wheel slips, the system automatically transfers power to the wheels with the best grip on the road. Newer Outback models also come standard with 8.7 inches of ground clearance to help you drive in deep snow. You can get most trims with additional features to keep you comfortable in colder weather, including heated front seats and dual-zone climate control.

The Subaru Outback comes equipped with standard safety features to help you drive on winter roads. These features include automatic high-beam assist, lane departure and sway warning, automatic emergency steering, and pre-collision braking. Depending on the Outback you choose, optional safety features may be available, such as blind-spot detection with lane change assist.

Toyota Camry

If you prefer the handling and efficiency of a sedan, get one that can handle winter conditions. The Toyota Camry is a good bet if you choose a model with available all-wheel drive. When the system senses the front wheels slipping, it sends torque to the rear wheels, which helps the car maintain its grip in rain or snow. Newer versions of the Camry offer two impressive engine options, or you can choose a hybrid version with a four-cylinder engine and electric motor, which produce a combined 208 net horsepower.

Other helpful winter features in the Toyota Camry include LED headlights and dual-zone climate control. Some models may come with an available cold weather package, which includes heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated power outside mirrors with blind-spot warning indicators. Newer models come standard with advanced safety features, including a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, road sign assist, dynamic radar cruise control, and automatic high beams. These features can help you feel confident when driving on wintry roads.

Chevrolet Tahoe

2022-chevrolet-tahoe-ottawa-onFor a full-size SUV that can handle snowy roads, choose a Chevrolet Tahoe. New models come with available four-wheel drive to increase the SUV's grip on slippery or uneven roads. The SUV also has several engine options, delivering up to 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Chevy Tahoe has impressive ground clearance, and on some models, an air ride adaptive suspension can even adjust the SUV's height to increase clearance depending on the road conditions.

The Chevy Tahoe also comes with other features that make it a bit more bearable when you have to leave the house on a chilly winter day. New models come standard with tri-zone automatic climate control and remote start, so you can warm up the car before your trip. Rain-sensing wipers help keep your visibility clear, while LED headlights provide enhanced clarity during difficult conditions. Safety features in the new Chevrolet Tahoe include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, following distance indicator, and automatic high-beam assist.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep has a well-deserved reputation for making cars to withstand tough conditions, and the Grand Cherokee is no exception. The Grand Cherokee comes standard with an off-road capable four-wheel-drive system, providing maximum traction in any weather condition. On newer models, an available traction management system allows you to choose from different modes based on road conditions, including snow. Dual-zone climate control comes standard in newer Grand Cherokee models, and most trims offer heated front seats to keep you warm and comfortable on days when the outside temperatures dip below zero.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee comes loaded with safety and convenience features to protect you on snow-packed roads. Driver assistance features include forward collision warning with active braking, active lane management, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, and high-beam assist. Optional safety features that can help you navigate difficult roads include a surround-view camera and night vision with infrared sensors.

Winter is just around the corner, so now is the perfect time to purchase a winter-friendly vehicle to get you through the season. Whether you are looking for a Chevrolet Silverado or Tahoe, or one of our used vehicles, at Jim Tubman Chevrolet, we offer a wide selection of new and pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs, including many models with all-wheel or four-wheel drive. Browse our online inventory or stop by our dealership for a test drive. If you're not ready for a new car, our service centre can help get your current vehicle ready for a Canadian winter. Give us a call or contact us for more information. We look forward to seeing you soon.

THIS HIGH-PERFORMANCE SPECIAL EDITION IS THE MOST POWERFUL TAHOE EVER

2018 tahoeBy Lesley Wimbush, Driving.ca - Enormous size, stump-pulling power and comfortable trappings used to be enough for fans of these rolling behemoths.  Who knew that a full-size SUV that sprints from 0-to-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds while still maintaining the ability to tow up to 8,400 pounds was what they really wanted?

Introduced at the New York Auto Show earlier this year, the Chevrolet Tahoe RST - which stands for Rally Sport Truck - starts with an appearance package and builds all the way up to a bad-ass performance truck with powertrain and suspension components borrowed from the Camaro ZL1.

With 49.3 per cent of the market share, the full-size SUV segment is an important market for GM: one out of every two sold is either a Tahoe or Suburban.  A three-row, eight-passenger, body-on-frame vehicle available in either rear- or all-wheel drive, the Tahoe competes against the Nissan Armada, Toyota Sequoia, sister vehicle GMC Yukon and its biggest rival, the Ford Expedition.  Tahoe sales are nearly double that of the Expedition's in the U.S., but in Canada it trails the Ford by a few hundred vehicles.  While the rest of the segment is powered by big V8 engines, the Expedition has a twin-turbo V6, and near-premium luxury features.

For 2017, the Tahoe lineup received more equipment and interior features, and a Premier model to replace the LTZ as the top trim level.  New standard equipment includes the Teen Driver System (allowing parents to monitor their youngster's driving habits), back-seat reminder, active grille shutters and an updated MyLink infotainment system.  The options list was also expanded, with an upgraded rear entertainment system, more USB ports, automated emergency braking, the illuminated bow-tie grille emblem from its pickup siblings, new 22-inch rims and a Midnight Edition appearance package.

And now the most powerful Tahoe ever: the RST.

While the base RST starts as a dechromed appearance package available on mid-level LT trims, retaining the standard 5.3-L V8 and six-speed powertrain and adding blacked-out grille and 22-inch rims, the top-spec Premier model can add the 6.2-L Performance Package, available on both rear- and all-wheel-drive Tahoes.  The package consists of the L86 6.2L V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque mated to the same 10-speed automatic transmission found in the Camaro ZL1.  Available are six-piston Brembo brakes, and the Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension system, which can assess road conditions and respond within milliseconds.

A 30-mile loop of not-very-inspiring Fort Worth suburban landscape is all we've got to evaluate our fully loaded Tahoe RST.  There's no RST badging anywhere on the vehicle: a glimpse of red Brembo calipers peeping from behind the spokes of the blacked out, 22-inch wheels, and two steely black tips from the optional Borla exhaust (which reportedly offers a 28 per cent improvement in flow) are the biggest visual clues.

Inside is a low-key leather interior: functional, comfortable but not particularly memorable.  There are other colours available that are more striking than our tester's black.  The infotainment screen is somewhat small in these days of panoramic display.

Seating is comfy, with room for seven or eight, depending on whether you opt for a second-row bench or available captain's chairs.  Our tester features the optional power release that easily drops the second-row seat for easier access to the third row, a rather cramped but admittedly useful space.  In all, there is a maximum of 2,681L of cargo space.

Despite its bulk, the Tahoe has very good road manners.  It is quiet and composed over bumps, without allowing any disturbances to enter the cabin.  It's fairly quiet until you tromp the gas pedal, when the small-block EcoTec3 V8 roars to life and the Borla exhaust answers with a deep-throated rumble.  This is the first time this engine has been available in the Tahoe, and if it doesn't quite offer Corvette-style performance, it does move the nearly 6,000-lb (2,720-kg) vehicle along with surprising swiftness.

We weren't able to confirm the sub-six second 0-to-100 km/hr sprint time, but suffice it to say the RST is pretty quick.

The Brembo brakes do a great job of reining it back in.  Once off the freeway, we travelled over some rather ratty pavement.  Although the big rims were wrapped in performance rubber, the suspension absorbed most of it without any harshness, yet at the same time the vehicle felt nicely planted without exhibiting any wallow.

Our U.S.-spec vehicles were rated at 17 mpg city/22 highway (13.8L/100 km city/10.7 highway) but featured active cylinder management, shutting down half the cylinders when not under heavy load and effectively converting it into a more efficient four-cylinder.

So, is there really a demand for such a special-edition, high-performance utility vehicle?  Well, in addition to the Tahoe RST we just tested, and its sibling the Suburban RST, Mercedes has been relentlessly churning out new AMG-badged crossovers, Chrysler has a 700-hp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk powered by a Hellicat engine, and its new Dodge Durango boasts 475 hp, launch control - and a towing capacity of 8,600 lbs.  Suddenly the Tahoe RST sounds almost reasonable.

Available now in Canadian dealerships, the 2018 Tahoe starts at $64,045 for the LT 2WD, $67,345 for LT 4WD and $75,070 for the Premier 4WD ($1,795 destination/freight charge included).  The RST appearance package is $2,995.  The RST 6.2-L Performance Package is an additional $3,395, for a total of $6,390.  Add $4,130 for the Brembo Brake Package, and $1,620 for the Borla Exhaust.
