The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe
is a smart, capable full-size SUV with a distinct heritage of dependability - in fact, in 2017, it was voted the Most Dependable Large SUV by J.D. Power and Associates
. This year's model drives that distinction even further forward, locking in that same critically-acclaimed dependability in the powertrain, body, interior, accessories, and features. That means you can trust this hardworking vehicle to do it all, from effortlessly towing your boat from Seguin for a weekend at Lake Travis to picking up a load of mulch for the garden over in New Braunfels. This body-on-frame hauler is capable of handling up to 6,400 pounds of towing capacity, so go ahead - grab that extra load of tile or gear up for a longer camping trip.
Sizing Up: The 2018 Chevy Tahoe
Measuring an roomy 204 inches long by 81 inches wide and 74 inches long, this model year packs a sizable 15.3 square feet of cargo room, opening up to 94.7 square feet with the rear seat area folded down. With room for seven passengers, each row of seating offers plush comfort and plenty of handy amenities. This luxurious seating doesn't just look and feel premium, US News and World Report notes that it contributes to the 2018 Chevy Tahoe's "cushioned, quiet ride."
With a best-in-class fuel economy of up to 23 miles per gallon highway, you'll be able to enjoy longer stretches of road when your travels take you beyond the immediate San Antonio, TX area.
Make no mistake, the 2018 Tahoe isn't your average "workhorse" of a large SUV - it's been built for luxury, and it shows from bumper to bumper. With an industry-leading package of tech options and extras, thoughtful trim inclusions, and functionality that keeps the modern traveler in mind, it's more than a vehicle, it's a lifestyle.
Tech in the 2018 Chevy Tahoe
Like most Chevrolets this model year, the Tahoe doesn't disappoint when it comes to impressive gadgets, interfaces, and digital conveniences for drivers and passengers alike. Available features make every inch of this surprisingly versatile full size SUV your own, from the optional 8-inch diagonal reconfigurable cluster to the seamless Apple Carplay or Android Auto interface that works with your mobile phone. You'll also have access to intriguing innovations like the heads-up display that keeps your eyes on the road without sacrificing access to important driving information like speed. There's even optional 4G LTE wi-fi to keep your passengers' digital devices connected and ready to entertain, network, or do business while you handle the driving.
If those devices happen to be running low on power, you won't have to look far to find a solution. Through options and packages, your 2018 Chevy Tahoe can come equipped with up to seven usb ports, a wireless charging station, and even a 110v outlet for heftier devices like laptops or rapid phone chargers. While you recharge your "life batteries" with an invigorating stint in the comfortable driver's seat of your Tahoe, you'll be able to relax knowing your phone, tablet, or other device will also be charged by the time you reach your destination.
The OnStar system, a standard in all trim levels, is a particularly smart benefit for Tahoe owners. In the event of an accident, crime, or other emergency, this built-in system can do everything from connecting you to first responders to silently alerting the police to your stolen vehicle's location. It's also handy during "regular" operation of your 2018 Tahoe as well - it facilitates hands-free calling for safe vehicle operation, delivers turn-by-turn directions and vehicle diagnostics, and even helps with roadside assistance if you run over a nail - or out of gas. Like a best friend tucked securely in your dashboard, OnStar makes driving safer, more comfortable, and, in the case of that unexpected flat tire, considerably easier too.
Trim Options for the 2018 Chevy Tahoe
Short but sweet, the trio of trim options for this model year covers all the vehicular bases. All three offer a suite of standard features that stand all on their own: a six-speed automatic transmission, a multitude of smartly-placed 12 volt power outlets, a 110 volt power outlet for plug-in convenience, tri-zone automatic climate controls, an Onstar system, and steering wheel controls that give you access to everything you'll need. The differences in trims give you even more customization options, however, making it easy to find the perfect 2018 Chevy Tahoe for your needs.
• LS / Luxury Sport Trim
The base model of the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe, this trim includes standards listed above and a variety of add-on options as well, such as roof-mounted cross rails for adventure-seeking and cargo-carrying, as well as an enhanced driver alert package and power-adjustable pedals for the perfect driver fit. Whether your travels take you through Schertz and Selma or beyond, you'll cruise in perfect comfort with this base-level trim.
• LT / Luxury Touring Trim
The LT trim for the 2018 Chevy Tahoe includes a few standards that aren't found in the LS, such as a forward collision alert system, a power liftgate, and a Bose® premium 9-speaker sound system for listening to you favorite music, radio shows, and podcasts. Convenient options like theft protection, a manual tilt and telescoping steering column, power open / keyless entry and power start functions give you more control and make shopping and errands a great deal easier. The power start option is particularly useful in the San Antonio heat - it's an easy way to make sure ice-cold air-conditioning is waiting for you before you even leave your home or office.
• Premier Trim
The 2018 Chevy Tahoe Premier trim is the cream of the crop, delivering the best standards and giving you a wealth of trim-unique upgrade options to make every drive a pleasure. Keyless open and start are included as standard, and the steering column is upgraded with power controls to adjust tilt and telescoping features with the push of a button. Standard front and rear park assist ensure that even the trickiest parking lots are easier to navigate, and magnetic ride control gives you more precision in steering by monitoring each wheel independently during operation.
