- The 2023 Chevy Tahoe’s RST trim level will offer a performance package with extra power and chassis tweaks.
- An upgraded exhaust adds 13 horsepower and 7 pound-feet to the 6.2-liter V-8.
- The package costs $8525 extra and it will be available late this year.
Perhaps Chevrolet is a bit jealous of the Ford Expedition’s Stealth Performance package, as the 2023 Tahoe full-size SUV will now be adding a performance package of its own. Available for the RST trim level, the Performance Edition adds an upgraded exhaust, suspension tweaks, and different brakes.
The exhaust adds 13 horsepower and 7 pound-feet to the RST’s 6.2-liter V-8 engine, bringing totals to 433 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. Springs, dampers, and an anti-roll bar borrowed from the police-spec Tahoe are also included, meaning the Performance Edition sits 0.4 inch lower than stock. Larger front brakes provide extra stopping power, and the calipers are painted red.
Chevy claims improved performance metrics, including a 5.8-second sprint to 60 mph, a 124 mph top speed, and shorter stopping distances. We’ll see how it performs on our test track when we’re able to get our hands on one; it’ll have its work cut out for it matching the Expedition Stealth Performance’s 4.9-second 60-mph run.
The Performance Edition costs $8550 on top of the 2023 Tahoe RST 4WD’s $66,595 base price. It also includes the Luxury package, which typically costs $3025 and includes equipment such as heated second-row seats, adaptive cruise control, and a heated steering wheel. Tahoes equipped with the package will arrive at dealerships in the last quarter of this year.
