2021 CHEVY TAHOE 3.0L DURAMAX TURBO-DIESEL IS THE MOST FUEL-EFFICIENT FULL-SIZE SUV IN ITS CLASS

-

THE Chevrolet Tahoe with the available 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel engine offers an Epa-estimated 28 highway, 21 city and 24 combined mpg in rear-wheel-drive models. Epa-estimated fuel economy for four-wheel drive models is 26 highway, 20 city and 22 combined mpg. This is Chevy’s first diesel inline-six engine for full-size SUVS, and the brand’s first diesel offered in full-size SUVS since 1999. In the Suburban, the 3.0L Duramax offers an EPA estimated 27 highway, 21 city and 23 combined mpg in two-wheel drive models and 26 highway, 20 city and 22 combined mpg in four-wheel drive models.

The 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel launched first in the 2020 Silverado, utilizing state-of-the-art technologi­es to optimize fuel and integrate into the all-new vehicle architectu­re. Small changes adapt the engine for the full-size SUV applicatio­n, including enhanced noise abatement and a new engine control module, specifical­ly designed to leverage the faster data-processing power of the all-new models. The engine is exclusivel­y paired with a 10-speed automatic transmissi­on for a smooth shifting experience.

With an Sae-certified 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, the Tahoe 3.0L Duramax with two-wheel drive is capable of maximum towing up to 8,200 pounds and a max payload of

1,717 pounds. The Suburban with the same engine is capable of a maximum towing of 8,000 pounds and a max payload of

1,625 pounds in two-wheel drive models. A standard exhaust brake is available in tow-haul mode and can provide additional driver confidence when towing.

The driver-selectable stop/ start technology optimizes fuel economy by shutting off the engine at stoplights and certain other stop-and-go situations, helping to save fuel.

The 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel is available on the LS, LT, RST and Premier trims with an MSRP of $995 over the base 5.3L V-8 gas engine. It is also available in the High Country trim as a

$1,500 MSRP decrease over the standard 6.2L
