Chevrolet is introducing a new special edition of two of our favorite SUVs. The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will be available as Rally Sport Truck models, or RST. The RST models will provide all the performance aspects that we’ve come to expect from the Tahoe and Suburban, with additional performance perks for both work and street cruising.
The RST combines a street performance look with the capability and refinement Chevrolet is used to providing. The street performance look has chased away virtually all of the chrome trim on the old Tahoe and Suburban models. Instead, the grille surround and door handles match the body color, and the grille and mirror caps are now glossy black. The RST also comes with 22-inch wheels and Bridgestone P285/45R tires, exclusive to this model. The 2018 Tahoe RST will also have the option of increased performance. The new Performance Package includes a 420-hp 6.2L V-8 engine and an all-new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. It also has Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration for a smooth ride on or off the streets.
This means that the 2018 Tahoe RST will be the first Tahoe that offers the 6.2L V-8, which produces 460 lb-ft of torque and 420 horsepower. The all-new 10-speed automatic transmission maximizes engine power under acceleration with smaller steps between each ratio. The transmission also keeps the rpm low at highway speeds to improve your milage. Preliminary tests show that the 2018 Tahoe RST with the Performance Package will accelerate from 0-60 in under 6 seconds, and will have a towing capacity of 8,400 pounds. The Performance Package will also include Magnetic Ride Control, designed for higher levels of responsiveness and comfort. It’s an active suspension system that constantly reads the road and can trigger changes to the electronically controlled shock absorbers. This lets the suspension deliver both better body-motion control through corners and more comfortable cruising.
The RST models are made to be versatile and capable vehicles. Chevrolet has increased the performance you’re used to seeing in these SUVs: the RST models are faster, with much better acceleration, braking, and road grip than previous Tahoe and Suburban models. But they also show even more refinement, with exceptional ride quality and a quiet interior. The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are well-loved SUVs, and these RST models show Chevrolet’s dedication to meeting the individual needs of customers while staying true to their roots. The Tahoe and Suburban RST will offer refined, street-ready looks and ride comfort, while still providing the SUV performance you expect.
