Chevrolet has released a multitude of special editions in the past couple of years as it continues to segment the market for consumers and its vehicles, but the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST is one that actually feels pretty special.
The brand took the wraps off the Tahoe RST, which stands for Rally Sport Truck, with the intention of creating a bit of buzz for those looking for added performance from a full-size, body-on-frame sport utility vehicle. While the performance credentials sound good, we’re here to ask if the design is doing it for you in today’s Hot or Not.
The overall design add-ons are said to be inspired by current aftermarket trends, as Chevrolet looks to keep those aftermarket dollars in house. Body-color trim work, blacked out bowtie badges and massive 22-inch wheels exclusive to the Tahoe RST are the major additions here. We think it does enough to look special without overdoing it, but we’d like a little more flair from it overall. Maybe a splash of red to coordinate with the Brembo brakes would do it some good.
For those looking for a sleeper SUV, this will likely be your vehicle of choice, though. With subdued looks and plenty of power coming from the (optional) 6.2-liter L86 V8 engine, there’s a lot to love with the Tahoe RST.
So, what say you? Is the 2018 Tahoe RST a looker, or a loser? Vote in our poll below.
