Both the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban arrive as the second model year of an all-new generation of full-size GM SUVs introduced with the 2021 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban both offer expanded availability of the optional Brembo brake package.
The package in question is called the Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers, and is tagged with RPO code 5JR. The package is now available on all trim levels, including LS and LT, and even the fleet version of both the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban. The package was previously only available on RST, Z71, Premier and High Country trim levels.
The Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers is offered as an LPO-level option, which means it is installed at the dealer, rather than at the factory when the vehicle is initially produced. Pricing for the package is set at $3,495.
The Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Red calipers front and rear
- Front 16.1inch by 1.3-inch Duralife rotors
- Chevrolet Performance logo for front calipers
For LS and LT trim levels, as well as fleet versions, the Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers package requires upgrading to the optional 20-inch painted aluminum wheels with machine face and Argent Metallic pockets (RPO code RD4), which are priced at $800). Alternatively, the package will work with any available LPO-level wheels all of which are sized between 20-and 22-inches in diameter, with pricing ranging between $2,995 and $3,495.
Previously, 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country trims were unavailable to order with the Brembo brake package in conjunction with LPO-level 20-inch and 22-inch wheels. That constraint is now gone, which means that not only can the Brembo brakes be ordered on additional trims, but they can also be ordered with additional wheel options.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban are offered with three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0LI6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Under the skin is the GM T1 platform. Production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
