What's New for 2019?
For the 2019 model of the Tahoe, Chevrolet kept things pretty similar to previous model years. Two exterior colors - Havana and Tungsten Metallic - are no longer offered; one new color - Shadow Gray Metallic - is now available on the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe. Another change is that the Premier Tahoe will come with a Premier badge proudly displayed on its tailgate.
There are two choices for the engine. The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe can either come with a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 or a 6.2L EcoTec3 V8. They both use direct injection and can either come with a four-wheel or rear-wheel drive powertrain. The 5.3L has 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, while the larger engine can achieve 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
In the 5.3L V8, the SUV gets an estimated 15 miles per gallon in the city and 21 miles per gallon on the highway. Those numbers change slightly with the 6.2L, with which estimated miles per gallon is 14 for the city and 23 for the highway.
The Tahoe can handle itself even when hauling significant cargo. The smaller engine can tow 6,400 pounds and the larger one can tow 8,400 pounds.
The three trim options for the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe give customers some choice. The 6.2L and 5.3L engine are available on the Premier, whereas the LT and LS models only come with the 5.3L. Overall, the LS has the most basic features, such as a manual versus a power liftgate and a six-speaker audio system instead of a nine-speaker set up.
At the LT trim, several luxury details are included. Leather-appointed front seats are there to enhance comfort and style, and keyless open and keyless start are available to make things more convenient.
Sitting at the top of the line is the 2019 Chevrolet Premier. It comes standard with heated power auto-dimming outside mirrors, and the side assist steps can come in a power-retractable model. Fog lamps and high-intensity discharge headlamps help contribute to visibility in addition to beefing up the exterior style. Making things easier for people with their hands full is a hands-free power programmable liftgate.
Numerous safety mechanisms are incorporated throughout the Tahoe. To keep a better eye on what's going on behind them, drivers can take advantage of the rear vision camera. The Chevy Tahoe also comes with Rear Park Assist in an effort to notify drivers of potential impacts with objects they may not be able to see. A front parking assist system is is available starting at the LT for anyone who could use extra help.
Forward Collision Alert, which is available on the lower trim and standard on the others, can send out a warning in case of a predicted accident. Other features that are included on the upgraded trims include an assistance system that can keep drivers in their lane as well as automatic braking when a front-end collision could potentially occur.
If anyone prefers maximizing the fresh air in the vehicle, a power sunroof is available, starting at the LT trim. The LT and LS Tahoes come with a second row set up with a 60/40 split-bench configuration. In the LT, that row can instead come with power seats and/or bucket seats if preferred. Power bucket seats with a heating element in them are standard on the Premier and available on the LT.
Another heating element can be found in the steering wheel. This feature is standard on the Premier and available on the LT.
The basic entertainment system is run on a 8" color touchscreen. The system includes Bluetooth for wireless connectivity. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available so that it's simple to access information from a smartphone. Voice-commands are accepted to help maintain a driver's focus on the road.
The entertainment system can come with integrated navigation. This more comprehensive package is available on LT and standard on the Premier. If anyone wants people in the back to have their own media arrangement, a 9" screen is available to put in the upper two trims. It includes two wireless headphones for more private viewing.
The sound system is substantial, with a minimum of six speakers placed around the Tahoe. That can get upgraded to a nine-speaker Bose system. The Tahoe Premier takes the audio quality one step further, with a Bose Centerpoint 10-speaker sound system
There are a few areas in which drivers can enhance their vehicles. Most 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe come standard with 18" aluminum high-polished wheels, for example, but there is the choice to upgrade to 20" or 22" wheels. There are many choices for material, including chrome, silver, and polished aluminum.
If one wishes to add on several things, there are packages that can be purchased. The Z71 Off-Road package includes items like all-terrain tires and premium shocks that help it better handle uneven terrain. The Sun, Entertainment, and Destinations Package is ideal for long road trips, with its upgraded media system and power sunroof. Another example is the LT Midnight Edition. A Tahoe with this package sits on 20" black aluminum wheels with blackwall tires, has roof rack cross rails to help with hauling cargo on top, and its classic Chevy bowtie comes in a sleek black.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Chevrolet Tahoe
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Chevrolet Tahoe invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Chevrolet Tahoe MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
