The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban will enter production at the GM Arlington Assembly plant on October 4th. Both the Tahoe and Suburban were completely redesigned for the 2021 model year and as such, they will receive only minor changes for 2022, including new colors and small changes to the features and content within trim levels.
The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban both feature the 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine as standard, which is rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The available 6.2L V8 L87, meanwhile, makes 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Lastly, there’s the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, which is the only diesel engine offered in this segment. It produces 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, giving customers a torque-rich engine option that won’t guzzle fuel at quite the same rate as a gasoline V8. All three engines are paired with GM’s Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission.
