The 2023 Chevy Tahoe marks the third model year of the fifth-gen full-size SUV, for which it received a variety of small changes and updates. Arguably the biggest change was the addition of Super Cruise, but a few others are also worth noting, so here’s exactly what’s new and different about the 2023 Tahoe.
The 2023 Chevy Tahoe continues to be offered as a full-size five-door SUV across the following trim levels:
- Commercial / Fleet (fleet only)
- High Country
An extended-length variant of the Tahoe is sold as the Chevrolet Suburban.
No changes are taking place on the mechanical front, as the 2023 Tahoe carries over its two gasoline V8 engines and one straight six turbo-diesel engine from the 2021 and 2022 model years.
|Engine||Fuel||Aspiration||Transmission||Drivetrain||Horsepower @ RPM||Torque @ RPM||Axle Ratio|
|5.3L L84 EcoTec3 V8||Gasoline||Atmospheric||10-Speed Automatic (MHS)||RWD or 4WD||355 @ 5600||383 @ 4100||3.23|
|6.2L L87 EcoTec3 V8||Gasoline||Atmospheric||10-Speed Automatic (MHS)||RWD or 4WD||420 @ 5600||460 @ 4100||3.23|
|3.0L LM2 Duramax I6||Diesel||Turbocharged||10-Speed Automatic (MQC)||RWD or 4WD||277 @ 3750||460 @ 1500||3.23|
On the outside, the 2023 Chevy Tahoe replaces three existing colors with three new ones:
- Satin Steel Metallic (G9K)
- Evergreen Gray Metallic (GED)
- Cherry Red Tintcoat (GSK)
There are also two new 22-inch wheel options. The first are 22-inch polished aluminum wheels (RPO code SII) while the second set are Carbon Flash Metallic aluminum wheels with selective machining (SIY). Both wheels are available on LS, LT, RST, Premier and High Country, but not on Commercial or Z71 trims.
Inside, the only change to the 2023 Chevy Tahoe is a change in the material that wraps the steering wheel. Specifically, the LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country trim levels now have steering wheels wrapped in simulated leather (N57). By comparison, 2021 and 2022 models featured leather-wrapped steering wheel (NP5). Additionally, the commercial/fleet model continues with Urethane steering wheel (NK5).
Driver Assist Technology
On the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) front, the 2023 Chevy Tahoe gains Super Cruise (UKL). It’s available only as part of the Advanced Technology Package, which also includes Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist (UKZ) and Reverse Automatic Braking (UVZ). The package is only available on Premier and High Country models.
Speaking of packages, the 2023 Chevy Tahoe sees a small rearrangement when it comes to Adaptive Cruise Control (KSG) and Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (UGN). Both of these features have been removed from the Premium Package (PCU), Premium Package 2 (RGK) and the High Country Deluxe Package (PDM), and are now standalone options.
For the 2022 model year, these were available only in conjunction with the Premium Package (PCU), Premium Package 2 (RGK) and the High Country Deluxe Package (PDM).
After the 2023 model year, the 2024 Tahoe will see only minor changes, as the big updates will come with the refreshed 2025 Tahoe. The refresh is set to bring a slew of noteworthy updates such as revamped front and rear fascias, a revamped cockpit with larger a larger infotainment screen, and a new diesel engine. We also expect a dual-mode exhaust system for the 6.2L V8 engine, and the availability of the turbo-diesel engine in conjunction with the Z71 trim level.
It’s worth noting that the refreshed Tahoe was initially expected for 2024, but was pushed back to 2025.
The updates and changes described here are specific to the U.S. market and may be different for other markets.
