General Motors has just launched the updated 2022 Chevy Tahoe in the Middle East, as part of the international rollout of Chevrolet’s full-size SUV that was recently introduced for the first time in South Korea. The automaker has expanded the Tahoe lineup to further align it with local customer preferences and strengthen its commercial success in Southwest Asian countries.
The 2022 Chevy Tahoe represents the second model year of the fifth-generation Tahoe, which first launched in the Middle East in late 2020, and it’s now introducing significant configuration updates. In fact, the 2022 Tahoe arrives in that region with the brand’s latest, most advanced connectivity solutions, an additional and more muscular powertrain, and the RST trim that adds a new level of styling in the segment.
“Chevrolet is known for building outstanding SUVs and the 2022 Tahoe epitomizes this engineering expertise, introducing more power, performance, technology and style for the region’s full-size SUV lovers,” said Chief Marketing Officer at GM Middle East, Sharon Nishi, in a statement. “With Google built-in technology, an all-new trim and performance enhancements, we’ve elevated the iconic Tahoe line-up offering for our audiences,” she added.
The 2022 Chevy Tahoe’s lineup in the Middle East expands from the previous model year’s four trim levels to five with the addition of the RST, available for the first time in the region. With this boldly styled and personalized new version, the iconic SUV’s lineup encompasses multiple customer needs, including LS, LT, Z71, Premier and the range-topping RST.
Unlike the previous model year, in which all trims levels were offered exclusively in the region with the 5.3L V8 L84 engine, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe now offers the 6.2L V8 L87 with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque in the Middle East as well. The more powerful engine is now available as an option on Z71 and Premier trims while being fitted as standard on the new performance-focused RST. Both engines are mated to GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission.
The updated 2022 Chevy Tahoe lineup is now available at the brand’s official dealer network in the Middle East, with extensive class-leading technology and safety features, including an infotainment system with Google built-in, navigation and in-vehicle apps.
