Chevrolet will usher the 2018 Tahoe Rally Sport Truck (RST) to dealers this fall in the United States, but the SUV will make its way to the Middle East next month. Chevrolet Middle East says customers in the region expressed heightened interest for the model and it will gauge overall interest at the auto show.
The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST packs the 6.2L L86 V8 engine, with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, GM’s new 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission and a specifically-tuned Magnetic Ride Control suspension when customers select the RST Performance Package. If not, the RST Package itself adds 22-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone P285/45R tires, high-performance brakes, a Borla exhaust and other small details.
With both packages, Chevrolet says the performance SUV will scoot from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds. That’s no small task for an SUV that weighs 5,600 pounds.
The Dubai Auto Show opens on November 14. We have a feeling the Middle East’s reaction will be quite positive to the performance SUV.
