Our Opinion - 2022 Chevy Tahoe Review

Chevy’s fifth-generation Tahoe is a significant improvement over its predecessor, and even though we don’t think that the company pushed its advancement far enough to ensure its position as the segment’s dominant player. Driving the Tahoe is effortless thanks to its nimble 10-speed automatic transmission and powerful, smooth drivetrains.

Air spring and magnetic shock combo suspended in the 2021 Tahoe impressed us, but the coil springs had a tendency to rattle passenger seats. That the Used either off-road pack will get even more goodies in 2022 is welcome news to us. 

Additionally, an electronic variable speed differential is included as standard equipment, which Chevrolet claims will improve torque management and driver confidence. 4WD-only Tahoe Z71 has a wide range of capabilities that extend well beyond the road.

The Tahoe’s load floor is now lower & flatter than ever before, making it much easier to load passengers and cargo. Even in the third line, the seats are comfortable and quiet. The Tahoe can compete with an Expedition of similar quality is just one of many reasons. In reality, the Tahoe beat out the Blue Oval in a head-to-head test, thanks to the Tahoe’s razor-sharp looks.

  • RST, Z71, & Premier trims feature a 6.2-liter V-8 engine.
  • For the Z71 trim, an electronic variable speed differential is an option.
  • The 12.3-inch digital instrument panel is standard on all LT trims and higher.

  • A total of 13 camera views are available.


  • Powertrains that react quickly
  • The exterior has a distinct style.
  • The interior has a generous amount of space.


  • Ride quality similar to that of a truck.
  • Interior design that is too old fashioned.
  • The design of the workspace is sloppy.

A full-size Chevrolet Tahoe Vehicle needs to enter 2022 with minor updates following an extensive redesign for 2021. The Tahoe is based on the same body-on-frame architecture as previous generations of the Silverado, but unlike the pickup, it has fully independent suspension. It has an eye-catching exterior and a roomy cabin that’s ideal for transporting families and other goods.

Are you on the lookout for a larger SUV? Consider the 2022 Chevy Suburban, which is a Tahoe with an extended wheelbase.

The standard drivetrain is a 5.3-liter V-8 matched with an automatic automatic transmission to rear-wheel and optional four-wheel drive. A whopping 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque are delivered by this engine. The 5.3-liter engine is capable of towing 8,400 lbs (RWD) or 8,200 lbs (AWD) (4WD).

The 6.2-liter V-8 paired to a 10-speed automated process is also available. Optional 4WD can be added. 420 hp & 460 lb-ft of engine power are available from this engine. The maximum towing capacity with RWD is 8,300 pounds, and the maximum towing capacity with 4WD is 8,100 pounds.

There is a 3.0-liter turbocharged I-6 diesel option to complete the engine lineup. A 10-speed automatic gearbox delivers 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque to the car’s rear wheels or all four wheels if you opt for four-wheel drive.

With 4 stars in the front crash test, 5 stars with inside crash test, and only three stars in the accident test, the NTSA awarded Chevrolet Tahoe a 4 overall safety rating for 2022. A wide range of driver-assist technologies are included in the Tahoe’s standard equipment.

All 2022 Chevy Tahoe models come standard with forward automatic braking, pedestrian detection, fully automated high beams, following length indicator, and automatic braking. In addition to standard and front rear park assist, this model year’s model also includes standard lane companion assist with lane keeping as well.

A 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe’s greatest asset is its generous amount of interior space. When all the seats are folded down, there is 25.5 cubic metres of cargo space. When the third row is folded down, the volume increases to 72.6 cubic feet. When the 2nd and 3rd rows are folded flat, total cargo space expands to 122.9 cubic feet.

A larger Suburban, which has 41.5, 93.8, & 144.7 cubic feet of space behind the first, 2nd, and third rows, is an option for those who need more room. There’s plenty of legroom in every row, with the front row having 44.5 inches, the second row having 42 inches, and the rear row having 34.9 inches.

New updates for 2022 have made the Tahoe Z71 more appealing than ever before. All-terrain tyres cover the 20-inch alloy wheels, and there are black side steps, a black grille, & black roof rails to finish off the vehicle’s look. a 6.2-liter engine with an electronic variable speed differential is now available, which should enhance dealing as well as pulling power under difficult conditions.. 

Gauge cluster displays with a 12.3-inch resolution are now standard, enhancing the level of technology in the interior. The Z71 package also includes magnetic ride control as an option. As a whole, this is a mid-range product that can be tailored to the buyer’s needs. If you’re looking to buy a 2022 Tahoe, this is a great option.

As of the LT and above, a retina display digital instrument panel is now standard. The 4.2-inch information screen on the entry-level LS model is accompanied by analogue gauges. All Tahoe models come standard with a 10.2-inch infotainment display that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. 

It comes standard with nine speakers, but the higher-end Premier & High Country trims get a basic 10-speaker Bose system. Additionally, these models come equipped with a built-in compass.

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe comes standard with an independent coil-sprung suspension, but we found it to have a sluggish ride. However, there are a number of other configurations to choose from. Magnetic ride control is available as an option for Z71 buyers who opt for the Z71 package. 

This system is standard equipment on the Tahoe Premier. Also included as standard is flexible air suspension & magnetic ride regulation, which we found to be the most comfortable and responsive in our testing of this model year’s Tahoe High Country.

  • The Dodge Durango.
  • Sequoia from Toyota
