The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe is one of the most popular full-size SUVs on the market and comes with plenty of crowd-pleasing features. However, as with other large SUVs, the Tahoe doesn’t come cheap. Still, Chevy offers a handful of trim options that should have something for everyone. Here’s a look at the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe and which trim may be best for you and your budget.
The 2023 Chevy Tahoe LS is the cheapest model available
According to cars, the LS trim is the base trim on the Tahoe and as such is the least expensive trim. It starts at around $56,000 and includes some powerful specs and valuable equipment. For example, it comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a tri-zone climate control system.
It also has a 5.3-liter V8 engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The V8 gives the Chevy SUV 355 hp. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and buyers can upgrade to a four-wheel-drive system for $3,000.
The LT trim starts at around $61,500 and is similar to the LS trim. The main difference between the two versions is that the LT version has some additional premium equipment. This Chevy SUV has a 10.2-inch touchscreen and a 12-inch digital instrument cluster. It has a hands-free liftgate, wireless phone charging capability, and a premium nine-speaker stereo system from Bose as well.
The 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST Is Performance-Oriented
The RST trim is the Tahoe’s performance trim, but car buyers will have to pay more to access its best features. The RST version starts at $64,000 and has some unique details that make the SUV look a little different. It comes standard with the 5.3-liter V8 that’s standard on the other models, but you have access to an optional 6.2-liter V8 that makes 433 hp. When fully loaded, the RST is the fastest Chevy Tahoe ever made.
The Z71 version is for off-road adventures
The Z71 version costs $66,000 and is designed for off-roading. As such, it comes with off-road improvements, some of which are exclusive to the version. For example, Chevy improved the SUV’s ground clearance, added a front-mounted skid plate, and got 20-inch all-terrain tires. Chevy gave the Z71 four-wheel drive, unlike the other models, as a standard feature.
The 2023 Chevy Tahoe Premier is a luxury SUV
The Premier version starts at just over $69,000 and pushes the Tahoe into a full-size luxury SUV. It’s similar to the other Tahoes under the hood, but it has a lot more equipment and a nicer interior. The Premier trim gets leather seats, a premium 10-speaker stereo system from Bose, and power second- and third-row seats. On top of that, Chevy Super Cruise, which is Chevy’s semi-autonomous self-driving feature, is an option on this model.
High Country trim is the top trim for the Tahoe.
The High Country trim starts at just under $75,000 and is the top version of the Tahoe. Like the Premier trim, the High Country trim pushes the Chevy SUV into a luxury SUV. In addition to the other premium features carried over from other trims, it gets leather seats in the first two rows, heated and ventilated front-row seats, and a wood-trim design. It has 22-inch wheels, exclusive badging, and owners can also equip this Chevy SUV with Super Cruise.
