SPIED: Tahoe High Country Caught Testing

Shaun Ochsner
Jun 14, 2019
Our spy photographers caught a glimpse of the Chevrolet Tahoe High Country SUV just before it entered the freeway in Michigan. Just behind it was a Lincoln Navigator. Internally known as T1UC, the Tahoe is expected to make heavy use of aluminum and high-strength steel body components popular among the major vehicle manufacturers. These materials are designed to decrease weight and meet federal fuel efficiency standards. It is possible there will be some major changes to the doors and other body panels in order to incorporate the aluminum and high-strength steel.

From the photos we can tell the Tahoe has a higher trim level due to the blinged-out grille. As usual, the camo hides most of the body lines on the SUV. The rims are a telltale sign we are looking at a Chevrolet Tahoe. We also notice the dual exhaust tips in the rear of the SUV, indicating the possibility of a more powerful engine found in the higher-trim lineup.

The Tahoe is expected to receive an independent rear suspension, something the Lincoln Navigator already has. GM executives have said the next-generation Escalade will get will get a diesel. GM has already added the 3.0L diesel inline-six in the Silverado and Sierra pickup trucks. The Escalade, Navigator, and Tahoe are all closely related cousins. There is speculation the Tahoe could receive the same diesel package found on the pickup trucks. We can also speculate the Tahoe will continue to come with the 5.3L V-8 or an optional 6.2L V-8 mated to an 8- or 10-speed automatic transmission. A dynamic fuel management system may be added. There is also a 2.7L turbo four-cylinder available, but it doesn't seem unlikely GM would add it to the Tahoe.
