2022 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban Get Expanded Availability Of Brembo Brake Package7
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.

Do these brakes offer any additional stopping power? Are there any measurements of stopping distances or any other measurements given anywhere? Or is this for appearance?
These brakes offer additional benefits. Maybe the average driver will not see it, but due to larger rotors and caliper pistons they’re more resistant to brake fade and shed heat better.
They look better, but that’s also subjective.
The stock brakes are certainly adequate – I’d buy these just for the marginal benefits when towing a trailer.
As mentioned below, buy the kit online somewhere and install at home. It’s straightforward and then sell the take-offs on ebay. The only way I’d buy them at a dealer is if they gave me the old rotors, pads, calipers, and bolts. Why pay for both sets?
Personally in every application that I had to purchase the optional Brembos I was amazed at the stopping power. Screw the color and the logo being on the calipers that is only fluff to get more money out of folks. Porsche really squeezes the money out of you for even choosing a black finish instead of red These brakes should be standard on every vehicle especially the ones with over 400 horsepower.
If you buy any accessories, they should be installed on the assembly line instead of double dipping the customer.
Yeah you usually don’t get any credit for all the parts they take off, and quality of work at dealerships is even more inconsistent than GM’s assembly line.
Are these real Brembo brakes?
Or does Brembo not license their name for companies like Ford and GM to exploit?
Brembo has been in GM vehicles, camaro SS…
