The biggest difference we can see is what appears to be an independent rear suspension replacing the longstanding live axle design, similar to shots of the Suburban in May earlier this year. Hardcore truckers might moan, but GM is aiming for enhanced ride quality and comfort here. To be frank, most Tahoes are just mall crawlers anyway, so this is probably for the best.
Another weird thing we've got going on here is a quad exhaust poking out the rear. What? Why? The Tahoe isn't a Cayenne Turbo, so we're not sure what Chevy is doing here. It'll be quite the move if the production car ends up with quad exhaust pipes. Engine-wise, we could be getting GM's 3.0-liter diesel in addition to the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8s currently in the stable.
The big wheels this one is rocking have a fairly intricate design for a brutish SUV, but that could hint at Chevy possibly making this Tahoe look a lot classier than its predecessors. We'll have to wait until mid to late 2019 to find out. If you want to know even more about GM trucks, we just drove the new Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra.
