The 2023 Chevy Tahoe represents the third model of the Bow Tie brand’s fifth generation full-size SUV. As one of General Motors’ more popular vehicles, the Tahoe generally posts solid sales figures and can be found throughout the U.S. Now, one person decided to create their own version of the 2023 Tahoe completely out of wood.
In a video posted to YouTube, we find a craftsman pull out various pieces of wood with which he’ll use to build a scaled-down model of the 2023 Tahoe. The first thing he does is use a template to sketch out the rough outline of the full-size SUV’s side profile, which he then uses as a foundation for the front and rear fascias, roof, and interior.
Once a rough approximation of the Tahoe has been created, the craftsman begins to etch out details like body lines, and eventually constructs wood wheels that his model will roll on. After the entire model has been completed – which includes the exterior, hood, roof, liftgate, interior, and wheels – he puts on the finishing touches and paints items like the wheels and front fascia.
This scaled-down model is certainly a piece of art. What do you think, dear reader? Let us know in the comments section below!
As a reminder, the Chevy Tahoe was expected to feature a mid-cycle refresh for the upcoming 2024 model year, which is set to kick off production in November 2023. However, the refresh will instead take place for the 2025 model year, or later. This eventual revision will include a new two-tiered lighting setup for the front fascia, as well as new a redesigned center stack infotainment screen, which boasts larger overall dimensions.
As far as the current 2023 model year is concerned, the Tahoe is available with one of three powerplant choices, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax.
