Last month, GM Authority caught what could be a new Chevy Tahoe SS prototype undergoing some real-world testing, building hype that a go-fast model variant could be in the works. Now, GM Authority is imagining what a 2021 Chevy Tahoe SS four-door model could look like with the following exclusive rendering.
As some fans may remember, we’ve already rendered a 2021 Chevy Tahoe SS two-door model, unveiling our creation in January of 2020. Now, we’re back at it with this exclusive four-door model variant.
For the moment, rumor has it a high-performance Tahoe, a.k.a. Tahoe SS, has been under consideration. Evidence comes by way of the potential prototype model spotted in June, which was so quick, we could only grab a single photo of it. What’s more, the prototype was abnormally loud, suggesting it’s got more than a few extra ponies corralled under the hood.
If GM does end up giving the Chevy Tahoe SS a green light, we expect it to come to the party with roughly 650 horsepower courtesy of the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. For those that don’t know, the LT4 is the same high-powered motor found in the Chevy Camaro ZL1, third-generation Cadillac CTS-V, C7 Corvette Z06, and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing.
Additionally, the Chevy Tahoe SS model would likely feature a lowered stance, with high-performance Magnetic Ride Control and Adaptive Air Ride suspension complemented by wider aluminum wheels and sticky performance rubber.
Four-wheel drive would be standard, while a selection of exterior styling enhancements would help onlookers identify the Tahoe SS as the go-faster performer of the SUV nameplate’s lineup. We would also expect some additional aero and cooling to round it out.
Of course, none of this matters if no one wants to buy it. So, we want to know – should General Motors build a new Chevy Tahoe SS model?
