DUE TO CUS­TOMER DE­MAND, CHEVRO­LET IS EX­PAND­ING THE AVAIL­ABIL­ITY OF THE 6.2L V-8 ENGINE WITHIN ITS FULL-SIZE SUV LINEUP BY IN­TRO­DUC­ING THE TA­HOE AND SUB­UR­BAN PREMIER PLUS SPE­CIAL EDI­TIONS.

The 6.2L V-8 was first made avail­able in the Chevy full-size SUV lineup on the 2018 Ta­hoe RST 6.2L Per­for­mance Pack­age.

The engine re­cently de­buted on the 2019 Sub­ur­ban RST 6.2L Per­for­mance Pack­age, which is now on sale at Chevro­let deal­er­ships na­tion­wide.

All Premier Plus edi­tion Chevy full-size SUVS, as well as RST Premier mod­els with the op­tional 6.2L Per­for­mance Pack­age, also fea­ture Mag­netic Ride Con­trol with per­for­mance cal­i­bra­tion and a Hy­dra-matic 10-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

“Our cus­tomers have shown strong de­mand for both Ta­hoe and Sub­ur­ban with the 6.2L V-8 op­tion,” said San­dor Piszar, di­rec­tor of Chevro­let trucks’ mar­ket­ing and ad­ver­tis­ing. “Thirty-six per­cent of all Chevy full-size SUV spe­cial edi­tion mod­els are now sold with this engine. Premier Plus gives both Sub­ur­ban and Ta­hoe cus­tomers an­other op­tion to choose from with sev­eral added premium touches.”

The 2019 Ta­hoe and Sub­ur­ban Premier Plus edi­tions fea­ture a unique in­te­rior with heated and ven­ti­lated black/ma­hogany- col­ored leather-ap­pointed front seats against a jet black trim sur­round. This premium two-tone in­te­rior and 22-inch pol­ished wheels make their first ap­pear­ance in Chevy’s full-size SUV lineup with the Premier Plus spe­cial edi­tions.

Other fea­tures in­clude gold Chevro­let “bowtie” lo­gos, chrome name­plate badg­ing, a head-up dis­play and 8-inch di­ag­o­nal clus­ter, cross rails, chrome power steps and ex­haust tip and a Chevro­let branded cargo or­ga­nizer.

Con­nec­tiv­ity is pro­vided by a stan­dard 4G LTE Wi-fi hotspot, and the Premier

Plus pack­age in­cludes a 12-month data plan.

The avail­able 6.2L

V-8 is ca­pa­ble of 420 horse­power and 460 ft-lbs of torque. The engine de­liv­ers three state-of-the-art tech­nolo­gies—di­rect in­jec­tion, Ac­tive Fuel Man­age­ment and con­tin­u­ously vari­able valve tim­ing—to make the most of power, torque and ef­fi­ciency across a broad range of op­er­at­ing con­di­tions.

The 10-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion of­fers smaller steps be­tween each ra­tio to max­i­mize engine power un­der ac­cel­er­a­tion. With a wide 7.39 over­all gear ra­tio spread and lower nu­mer­i­cal top gear ra­tio, the trans­mis­sion also re­duces engine rev­o­lu­tions at high­way speeds.

Mag­netic Ride Con­trol is an ac­tive sus­pen­sion that “reads” the road ev­ery mil­lisec­ond, trig­ger­ing damp­ing changes in the elec­tron­i­cally con­trolled shock ab­sorbers in as few as 10-15 mil­lisec­onds. As a re­sult, the sus­pen­sion de­liv­ers im­proved body-mo­tion con­trol dur­ing cor­ner­ing and a more com­fort­able ride while cruis­ing.

The 2019 Chevro­let Ta­hoe Premier Plus will start with an MSRP of $74,100 plus a $1,295 des­ti­na­tion charge, while the 2019 Chevro­let Sub­ur­ban Premier Plus will start at $76,900 with a $1,295 des­ti­na­tion charge. (MSRP ex­cludes tax, ti­tle, li­cense, dealer fees and op­tional equip­ment.)
