Chevrolet has announced the introduction of its 2023 Tahoe RST Performance Edition full-sized SUV.
“The 2023 Tahoe RST Performance Edition is designed for those who want the best of both worlds — the everyday comfort and capability of a full-size SUV along with the driving excitement of a true performance vehicle,” said Scott Bell, Chevrolet vice-president. “It leverages the proven capability of Chevy’s pursuit-rated police vehicle packages and motorsports success to offer a confident, engaging driving experience for our customers.”
The 2023 Tahoe RST Performance Edition delivers more power than other Tahoe by introducing Chevrolet Performance induction and exhaust systems to this package that increase output of the standard 6.2-litre V-8 to 433 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. That’s an increase of 13 hp and 7 lb-ft over the current RST’s available 6.2-litre engine. On the RST Performance Edition, the 6.2-litre V-8 engine continues to be paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission.
“We have carefully tuned this vehicle to handle speed with confidence and control that is immediately apparent behind the wheel,” said Dominique Lester, chief engineer. “The pursuit-rated driving dynamics inspire excitement and confidence on the road, and we’re proud to have achieved this level of ride and handling in a full-size SUV largely through performance calibration and tuning.”
The Tahoe RST Performance Edition will make its public debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Production begins in Q4 2022.
