GM is refreshing its full-size SUV lineup for the 2024 model year, with the upcoming 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban both set to introduce a long list of changes and updates over the preceding 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that these updates will include a new through-fascia exhaust treatment for certain trim levels.
For those readers who may be unaware, GM’s through-fascia exhaust treatment threads the exhaust pipe through a stylized “surround” that is physically part of the bumper. This surround is not physically connected to the exhaust pipe or muffler.
The through-fascia exhaust treatment differs from an integrated exposed exhaust tip, the latter of which is a stylized piece of metal that is physically connected to the exhaust pipe and muffler, and is essentially part of the exhaust system, rather than a styling piece that surrounds it. The third possible exhaust option would be a tucked-under exhaust tip, which hides the entire exhaust system, including the tips and mufflers, up underneath the bumper.
At present, current Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban models incorporate a tucked-under exhaust treatment when cradling either the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine or 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine, while models cradling the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine incorporate an integrated exposed exhaust tip.
Going forward, however, GM Authority sources indicate that 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban models cradling the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine will offer a new through-fascia exhaust treatment. Models equipped with the 5.3L V8 gasoline engine or 3.0L I6 diesel engine will continue to equip a tucked-under exhaust treatment.
|Model Year||2021, 2022, 2023||2024|
|5.3L V8 L84||Tucked under||Tucked under|
|6.2L V8 L87||Integrated exposed tip||Through-fascia|
|3.0L I6 Diesel||Tucked under||Tucked under|
In addition to the new exhaust treatment, the refreshed 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban will also usher in updates the front fascia and elsewhere in the rear fascia, as well as a new roof antenna design, a new two-tiered lighting treatment, 24-inch alloy wheel options, an updated interior, and more. Look for the refreshed 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban to hit production this coming November.
