2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban Add Power Options and Technology
DETROIT September 27, 2021; The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will offer new features and additional technology, including more mechanical options, infotainment improvements and additional standard active safety features.
“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 technology and larger driver information cluster
For 2022, Tahoe and Suburban will now offer up to 13 available, unique camera views1, 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. With four user-selectable layouts, this cluster allows drivers to (customize or personalize) display information in the way most comfortable for them during short trips or a long family adventure.
Seamless infotainment system with Google built-in compatibility
Today’s modern drivers increasingly expect seamless integration between their personal tech and vehicles. With Google built-in,2 standard on trims LT and above, drivers will have access to Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play right on the vehicle display. This new experience works with Android AutoTM3 and Apple CarPlay4 capability and offers new levels of customization and flexibility for customers.
Rather than connect a smartphone and project onto the center screen, select Google apps and services are integrated into the vehicle’s hardwire. Users have access to Google Assistant, Google Maps, and in-vehicle applications on Google Play. The integration will continue to evolve over time, but 2022 Tahoe and Suburban customers will be able to control vehicle functions by voice or the steering wheel, including:
- Phone calls and messaging (SMS), when phone paired
- Audio volume
- Changing AM/FM radio or SiriusXM channel (subscription required5)
- Navigation using Google Maps
The 2022 Tahoe and Suburban will continue to offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
Additional standard active safety features6 and color choices
Safety is an important consideration for many Tahoe and Suburban customers.
The 2022 models have two active safety features now standard across all trims: Front and Rear Park Assist and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning uses a brief, gentle steering wheel turn to alert you when you may be unintentionally drifting out of detected lane lines. It is part of a suite of six standard active safety features called Chevy Safety Assist on every trim for the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban. In addition to Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Chevy Safety Assist also includes:
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- Front Pedestrian Braking
- Forward Collision Alert
- Following Distance Indicator
- IntelliBeam auto high beams
Buckle to Drive will be a standard feature on the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban to help remind drivers to buckle up before driving. The feature does not allow a shift out of park until the driver and front passenger, if detected, have their seat belts fastened. Buckling a seat belt is among the top ways drivers can protect themselves in a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Additionally, Tahoe and Suburban also will offer new exterior colors: Evergreen Gray Metallic, Auburn Metallic and Dark Ash Metallic.
The 2022 Tahoe and Suburban will begin production in October.
