2022 Chevy Tahoe Z71 Overlanding Concept Debuts At SEMA3
Among the several vehicles that General Motors will present at this week’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas will be the 2022 Chevy Tahoe Z71 Overlanding Concept – a kitted-out version of the Tahoe that comes equipped with everything needed for a weekend of off-roading and camping.
Based on the current 2022 Chevy Tahoe Z71, the Overlanding Concept comes with GM’s Air Ride Adaptive Suspension, along with 18-inch concept beadlock wheels shod in knobby 33-inch tires. There’s also an Off Road Recovery Kit, Air Design black-painted fender flares, black tubular side assist steps and, most importantly, a High Country 80-inch premium tent by Freespirit Recreation. This tent is large enough to sleep three to five people and features the company’s tri-layer technology for additional warmth.
Under the hood of the 2022 Chevy Tahoe Z71 Overlanding Concept is GM’s 5.3L L84 V8 engine, which has a factory output of 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. In the 2022 Chevy Tahoe, the L84 engine pairs up with the GM 10-speed automatic transmission and in this case, four-wheel-drive with an Autotrac two-speed transfer case.
The concept SUV is otherwise identical to a stock Tahoe Z71, feature Red Recovery Hooks with a skid plate, black Chevy bowtie emblems, a black grille, black side roof rails, and a black rear bumper applique. It also appears to feature a set of the Baja Designs Squadron Sport Lamps from the Chevrolet Accessories catalog, which provide some additional forward visibility when off-roading at nighttime.
The purpose of this concept is to show Chevy customers how the Tahoe can be customized and outfitted with off-roading in mind. It puts a particular emphasis on overlanding, as the name suggests, which is essentially a combination of off-roading and camping that enables participants to reach off-grid campsites and other remote locations with their vehicles.

Like it if it was av with a diesel and no 3rd row seat id buy one
I like it.
I would like to see a 6.2 optional and second row captain seats and a rear camera for towing.
I personally would buy the rear hatch tent with an air bed inside using the second and third row for sleeping and keeping the kids separate from the parents.
Long over due…
Can anyone tell me what they are using for a roof rack? Is it the standard GM roof rack and will it support a RRT?
