General Motors has announced that it has reached an agreement with Unison SP ZAO to assemble the new, fourth-generation K2XX-platformed Chevrolet Tahoe in the area of Minsk, Belarus for the Russian and CIS markets. Tahoes produced at the site will be assembled from semi knocked-down (SKD) kits, joining the SKD-assembled fourth-generation Cadillac Escalade at the facility.
According to GM, the Unison plant has a modern production line and the staff has been trained in accordance with GM’s global production and quality control standards.
In Russia and the CIS, the Tahoe will be powered by GM’s potent 6.2L L86 V8 EcoTec3 engine and be available in the LT and LTZ trim levels. The former will carry a base price of 3.45 million Rubles while the LTZ will start at 3.85 million Rubles. That’s $60,000 USD and $67,000 USD by today’s conversion rates, respectively.
