2020 Chevrolet Tahoe: Here’s What’s New And Different11
The all-new, fifth-generation Chevrolet Tahoe will launch for the 2021 model year, not the 2020 model year as we had originally believed. That means that the current, fourth-generation model gets to live for another (final) model year as the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe, all while receiving a few minor changes and updates. Let’s review what’s new and different about the 2020 Tahoe.
There are no changes to the model line or the mechanical side of the full-size SUV. Meanwhile, the changes to the exterior are limited to the deletion of the Pepperdust Metallic color as well as new finishes for the following wheels:
- 22-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels with custom silver accents (SGK)
- 22-inch Bright machined aluminum wheels with Bright Silver finish (SIY)
Similarly, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe doesn’t bring any changes or updates to the interior. The two remaining changes impact two optional packages, as the full-size SUV deletes the All-Season Package and the LT Signature Package. Here’s what each of those now-deleted packages contained:
- All-Season Package, which was available only on the LS model and included:
- 20″ x 9″ polished aluminum wheels
- P275/55R20 all-season blackwall tires
- Body-color bodyside moldings
- Black roof rack cross rails
- Max Trailering Package
- All-weather floor mats
- All-weather rear cargo mat
- LT Signature Package, which was available only on the LT model and included:
- 20″ x 9″ chrome wheels
- P275/55R20 all-season blackwall tires
- Bright bodyside moldings
- Grille insert
- Polished exhaust tip
- Chrome recovery hooks
- Chrome assist step kit
And that rounds out the changes to the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe. If you were paying close attention, then you may have noticed that these changes are identical to those of the Tahoe’s extended-length twin, the 2020 Chevy Suburban.
We expect the 2020 Tahoe to drop in the third quarter of the 2019 calendar year. It will likely have a shortened production run as the all-new, 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is expected to launch in the first half of the 2020 calendar year.
The GM Arlington plant where the Tahoe is assembled alongside other full-size GM SUVs was recently re-tooled to produce the all-new, future Tahoe based on the T1 platform.

I’m a sucker for B R O W N interiors.
I guess I need to buy a 2019 if i go back to Tahoe. The all season package for the LS also includes the 3.42 axle that takes a slug in town and turns it into something pleasant to drive. (and the mandatory trailer package I don’t neeed)
Hope they dramatically change the styling for the new ones. The looks of the current Tahoe and Suburban are good only for funeral use.
That Tahoe 6.2L Performance Package RST shown drifting in the leading image begs to differ.
That thing that looks like it’s got bicycle wheels and tires?
I hope GM put the gear shifter in the center console and take it off the steering column like all the other SUV’s.
It’s not gonna be in the center console, but rather a push-button-type deal, as seen here:
Why? To what purpose? To be like the other kids on the block?
There are some designs that – over the decades – prove to work well, and there is no reason to change them. We went from gauges to digital dashboards in the mid 1980s… and went right back to gauges. Someone decided that touch controls for the HVAC was neato-whizbang-swell. But, user feedback has those controls back to physical knobs again.
The 1950s saw two forms of automatic transmission controls: buttons, and a column lever. The exception was 1955 MoPars with a handle on the dash. It was phased out due to complaints.
I have a 2015 LTZ Tahoe and love everything about it, but would like to see a change in the exterior. I love the feel and drive of the Tahoe, this is my second to own. Was hoping the 2020 would have a new exterior look.
I love my 2015 LTZ Tahoe as well!
I really like the fact that it has so much space inside. I would still install a top carrier, something like https://theguidr.com/best-car-top-carrier-reviews/ but I just like to have everything I could possibly need on board. For any other owner, I think that the car provides more than enough. And by the way, the brown interior looks sick!
