Six months after General Motors officially kicked off sales of the 2022 Chevy Tahoe in South Korea, the automaker is showcasing the full-size SUV’s high towing capacity through a popular TV series in the Asian country.
The Chevy Tahoe recently debuted as the star of the TV series House on Wheels’ fourth season, a variety show created by local channel TVN in association with Chevrolet that invites viewers to live in a mobile home for a day, and is a highly popular show in South Korea. In fact, this series has also showcased the towing capabilities of the Chevy Traverse and the Chevy Colorado in the first and previous two seasons, respectively.
In House on Wheels 4, the Chevy Tahoe shows off its towing capacity and overwhelming presence by hauling three cast members while towing the popular tiny house that hosts and guests stay in on the go. The Tahoe uses its robust structural configuration and power to tow a trailer weighing more than three tons, which is larger and heavier than the one used in previous seasons.
Thanks to its body-on-frame GM T1 platform, the Chevy Tahoe sold in South Korea can tow up to 3,447 kilograms or 7,600 pounds, with a tongue weight rating of 340 kg or 750 pounds, allowing the full-size SUV to tow yachts and other heavy trailers in a stable way. This is combined with the Adaptive Air Ride suspension and Magnetic Ride Control for greater driving comfort even when towing heavy loads.
The Chevy Tahoe in Korea is equipped with the naturally aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 engine and the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, delivering 426 metric horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. In addition, Tahoe’s standard 4WD in Korea ensures optimal performance in various terrain conditions.
The 2022 Chevy Tahoe is sold in South Korea exclusively in the range-topping High Country trim level, in one of two finishes, including the standard trim and a special Dark Knight appearance package that adds black logos. The Tahoe units for the Asian country arrive imported from the GM Arlington plant in Texas, the only facility in the world that manufactures the iconic American SUV.
