GM is set to refresh its full-size SUV lineup for the 2024 model year, and that includes the fifth-generation Chevy Tahoe and twelfth-generation Chevy Suburban. Both the 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban are set to introduce a wealth of updates and changes, as GM Authority has covered previously. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban will also offer an active exhaust system.
According to GM Authority sources, the refreshed 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban will offer a dual active exhaust system tagged with RPO code NPP. Notably, the same dual active exhaust system will also be introduced on the 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500. The dual active exhaust system for the 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 will only be available in conjunction with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and this will likely be the case for the refreshed 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban as well.
For those readers who may be unaware, the dual active exhaust system provides a throatier, more aggressive exhaust note when desired. It’s likely the exhaust note will differ depending on the drive mode selected, such as the new Sport mode.
As a reminder, the current Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban offer a total of three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. All three engines connect to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
Looking ahead, the refreshed 2024 Chevy Tahoe and 2024 Chevy Suburban are expected to introduce new exterior styling, an overhauled cabin with a larger infotainment screen, new tech features, and finally, the new 3.0L LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine as a replacement for the current LM2 Duramax.
