After making its debut on the 2018 Tahoe RST, and subsequently the 2019 Suburban RST, Chevy’s 6.2-liter V8 power unit will now propel the automaker’s Tahoe and Suburban Premier Plus models too, due to popular demand.
Like RST Premier spec models, All Premier Plus edition Chevys also come with Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration and a Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic gearbox.
“Our customers have shown strong demand for both Tahoe and Suburban with the 6.2L V8 option,” stated Chevy trucks marking exec, Sandor Piszar. “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.”
Prices start from $74,100 MSPR for the 2019 Chevy Tahoe Premier Plus, without the $1,295 destination charge, whereas the 2019 Suburban Premier Plus will cost you upwards of $76,900 MSRP, also without the aforementioned charge.
The two models come with unique interiors, featuring heated and ventilated Black/Mahogany-colored leather-appointed front seats against a Jet Black trim surround. This premium two-tone interior and the 22-inch polished wheels are available for the first time within Chevy’s full-size SUV lineup.
Other interesting features include gold Chevrolet bowtie logos, chrome nameplate badging, a head-up display with an 8-inch diagonal cluster, cross rails, chrome power steps and exhaust tip, plus a Chevrolet-branded cargo organizer. Last but not least is the standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with a 12-month data plan.
As for the available 6.2-liter V8 engine, it puts down 420 HP and 460 lb-ft (623 Nm) of torque, with the help of the 10-speed automatic transmission that’s said to reduce engine revolutions at highway speeds.
The 2019 Tahoe and Suburban Premier Plus can already be ordered from Chevrolet dealers, with production scheduled to commence in mid-August.
