2020 Chevy Tahoe

Have no fear, the big grilles are here. Or, at least we think they’re coming. One of our spy shooters caught the next-gen Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade out testing with more of their fronts ends exposed than before.

Starting with the Tahoe, we can see what amounts to a blinding amount of chrome under the wrappings. We’re guessing this would be a new Tahoe High Country trim level, mirroring the range-topping trim level currently offered on the Silverado and Traverse. The Tahoe’s current range topper is the Premier. Although the rather ornate details in the grille are not found on the current High Country trims, they also seem like something that would be available on the priciest Tahoe available. The same could be said of the LED lighting details visible under the camo as the Silverado High Country, shown below, does indeed have unique LED elements.

The next-generation Cadillac Escalade only shows up in two of the photos. As we can’t see shiny chrome reflecting through the camo, we’re guessing the Escalade will adopt a blacked out grille similar those found on the XT6 and other Cadillacs. We can also see horizontal lighting elements similar to those on other recent Cadillacs. As this is an Escalade, however, we’d imagine everything will be supersized.

GM will be ushering these trucks out soon, with the independent rear suspension being the big story. Besides the improved ride and handling, it should result in substantially improved cargo space and third-row legroom. Doing so would at least close the gap with the biggest Lincoln and Ford SUVs.

Platform
Like all fourth-generation units of the Chevrolet Tahoe, the 2020 Tahoe rides on the GM K2 platform shared with the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban, 2020 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, as well as the 2020 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV.

The same basic architecture was used on the 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500. These models were also available for the 2019 model year as “Double Cab” versions while the all-new Silverado and Sierra were being launched on the T1 platform.

Production
The 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe continues being assembled by GM USA at the GM Arlington plant in Arlington, Texas, USA.

Availability
The 2020 Chevy Tahoe will follow the general GM model changeover sequence and launch in the third quarter of the 2019 calendar year.

Beyond 2020
We expect that the 2020 model year will be the last year of production for the fourth-gen Chevy Tahoe, and that the model will be replaced by the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe.
