The 2025 Chevy Tahoe is about to become a flagship model after the facelift. Test mules are on the roads already and every now and then, the company is announcing new details. The full-size SUV is dropping a diesel engine for good, creating a pitch for the next-gen all-electric Tahoe. The EV should be out by 2026 as a part of a big electrification plan by General Motors. The truck-based SUV will use the same platform as the Silverado EV, with similar performances.
The MCE (mid-cycle enhancement) refresh is happening 5 years after the current generation’s debut. Some smaller crossovers go through bigger changes and launch next-gen models. The 2025 Chevy Tahoe is updating its predecessor with fresh styling details, new features and possibly another engine. The SUV remains a three-row vehicle with seating configurations for 7, 8 or 9 occupants. The focus is on practicality, efficiency and overall comfort.
Our experts are analyzing rumors and spy photos, trying to complete the puzzle. There are a few things we already know, but everyone wants to know what will redesigned 2025 Chevy Tahoe look like. The front fascia draws the most attention. The new lightning groups are coming for both Tahoe and Suburban, and we saw the two-tier layout already on the Blazer. Test mules wore 24-inch wheels, which is an optional feature. The antenna fin is on the roof and the rear lights are also refreshed.
Through windows, we could spot a new display as a centerpiece of the new infotainment system. A huge touchscreen sits at the center of the dash, which is also totally redesigned. The biggest one is 17.7 inches wide. Driver’s info monitor is also huge so you can’t miss a thing.
Other details, such as trim levels and full options list, are unavailable at this period of time. There is still enough time for changes and modifications depending on modern trends.
Under the hood of the 2025 Chevrolet Tahoe will be a 5.3-liter V8 unit. There is a chance for a replacement. Many other full-size SUVs replaced eight-cylinder powertrains with smaller, turbocharged V6. For now, we don’t know what configuration might be suitable for the big rig. But, the new Tahoe still can get enough juice from an old partner – 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The towing capacity is 8,000 pounds, and it must be better to keep up with the competition, Ford Expedition in the first place. A 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to rear wheels and GM is finally using independent rear suspension.
An alternative is available for high-end models. A 6.2-liter V8 can provide 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. It is standard for the High Country trim, while you can also pick it for the Z71 off-road package. The same 10-speed gearbox connects engine and wheels. A diesel is dropped from the lineup. That makes room for upgrades.
2025 Chevy Tahoe Z71, EV, SS
The SUV is one of the favorite big rigs. The full-size segment is pretty popular and uses large and powerful engines, which makes them good for some high-end upgrades. The 2025 Chevy Tahoe Z71 is the off-road package that raises the vehicle from the ground, adds special equipment to make the ride more comfortable and to protect body parts.
The 2025 Chevrolet Tahoe EV is the future of the lineup. The truck-based SUV is following in the footsteps of the Silverado. The pickup is also going all-electric. We assume the Tahoe EV is taking the same powertrain that can cover up to 450 miles in the high-performance form. The base model will be somewhere between 250 and 300 miles. Also, the power outputs will vary from the configuration. The biggest downside will be the price. Technology for EVs is still too expensive.
The 2025 Chevy Tahoe SS is definitely the model we want to see. But, unlikely to happen, although GM can do it pretty easily and become a serious competitor to Jeep Grand Wagoneer Hellcat. Chevrolet can use a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, also used by premium Cadillac Escalade V-Series. However, the SUV is not getting it before the Silverado. The truck needs to get into the same league as the Ram TRX and Ford Raptor R.
2025 Chevy Tahoe Release Date and Price
The redesign is ongoing, so the SUV could be launched soon. It is happening next year for sure. The 2025 YM is probably planned for the fall. The price goes up, that is another certain thing. The base version is tagged at $55,000. Expect a new one close to $60,000 and the Z71 is around $75,000. The electric model should start there as well. If the Tahoe SS happens with a supercharged V8 engine, massive outputs, and all other body parts that will help in handling all that power, the SUV is entering a six-digit price realm.
