A big, 420-horsepower V8 has been made more widely available on some 2022 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe SUV trim levels.
The 6.2-liter V8 was previously exclusive to the luxurious Suburban and Tahoe High Country trim level. For 2022, it will be optional on the less costly RST, Z71, and Premier trim levels of both large SUVs. When ordered on the RST (a trim level aimed at on-road performance), the bigger V8 is paired with magnetic dampers designed to provide a smoother ride and sharper handling.
The 6.2-liter V8 features a cylinder deactivation system that lets it run on four of its eight cylinders to save fuel under low-load situations. General Motors, the parent company of Chevrolet, deleted the system from certain 5.3-liter V8 trucks earlier in 2021 due to supply chain issues.
The Suburban and Tahoe Z71 models gain a newly optional electronic limited-slip rear differential for added off-road and slippery terrain traction, too.
Additionally, most versions of these big, Texas-built SUVs come standard with a revised 12.3-inch configurable instrument cluster display. The digital instrument cluster is fitted to LT and higher trim levels. The new display joins standard active lane control and parking sensors for the 2022 model year.
Finally, the SUVs’ infotainment system adds Google Assistant integration, including Google Maps directly through the central touchscreen. Users won’t have to access Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to use the powerful navigation software. See Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe models for sale
