Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will launch in 2025 with fresh designs, a more powerful diesel engine option available later in production, and new technology enhancements.

Together Tahoe and Suburban have led the segment for over 45 years and established themselves as cultural icons.

Chevrolet’s full-size SUVs are designed and engineered for its customers. The new 2025 Tahoe and Suburban are no exception; key highlights and features include:

  • Freshened exterior design with bolder signature lighting and all-new lighting animations, new available 24-inch wheels and more.
  • New interior design centered on an all-new best-in-segment 17.7-inch-diagonal central touchscreen, along with an enhanced High Country interior and additional refinements across the lineup.
  • New, available second-generation 3.0L turbo-diesel Duramax engine with 10 percent more horsepower than current models, which will be available later in production.
  • Ride and handling enhancements engineered for greater driving refinement.
  • Enhanced safety and technology includes Connected Cameras3, a fully integrated network of cameras that allow customers to remotely view the interior and exterior of their vehicle, in addition to recording events like crash and theft. Some features may require an OnStar plan.

Additional Refinements for More Curb Appeal

All six trims — LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country — receive a new front fascia, with select trims offering unique design cues.

Additional refinements contribute to a stronger, more planted stance that appears more confident, while new 24-inch wheel designs, available for the first time on RST and High Country, further contribute to the Tahoe and Suburban’s fresh style.

Highlights include:

  • More integrated appearance of the daytime running lights (DRLs), with a thinner yet more prominent look of the top DRL, thanks to an angled prism within the lighting signature that creates bold illumination in a sleek housing
  • The more prominent lighting signature gives the vehicles a greater sense of personality, with the Premier and High Country trims further distinguished with standard welcome and walk-away lighting animations as well as animated swipe turn signals
  • Dual C-shaped light designs maintain the family appearance seen in other Chevrolet vehicles

Along with their new look and lighting, the 2025 Tahoe and Suburban also introduce two new exterior colors: Cypress Gray and Lakeshore Blue Metallic.

A Revamped, Tech-Focused Interior

The new Tahoe and Suburban have a revamped interior that emulates the technology focus of other recently introduced Chevrolet models.

Display screens are the cabin's centerpiece, starting with an all-new standard 17.7-inch-diagonal freeform infotainment screen paired with the 11-inch-diagonal driver information center.

Additional interior highlights include:

  • Redesigned center console with new storage options and a repositioned, more convenient wireless charging pad.
  • New steering wheel design.
  • Unique interior with Victory Red stitching on RST and all-new Jet Black/Sky Cool Gray interior on Premier.
  • Upgraded and more refined High Country interior, with authentic wood décor — a first for Tahoe and Suburban — along with wingtip perforated leather seating surfaces, a unique steering wheel, “High Country” identification, and a unique Jet Black/Mocha color combination.

More Power on the Road With New Diesel Engine

Also new is the refined, second-generation 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel Duramax, which offers more power for greater confidence on the road — particularly when trailering.

It is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and is offered on all retail trims, including Z71 for the first time.

Launched previously on the Silverado 1500, the new diesel engine is rated at 305 horsepower and 495 lb-ft of peak torque, increases of 10 percent and 7.6 percent, respectively, over the current diesel engine’s 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

A retuned turbo compressor, along with new, higher-flow fuel injectors, revised piston-cooling oil jets, new steel pistons, and improved temperature control features with the cooling system’s Active Thermal Management contributes to the engine’s enhanced power, while new sound absorption materials and a tuned air induction system help balance its performance with quietness and improved refinement.

A 5.3L gas V-8 remains the standard engine for LS, LT, RST, Z71 and Premier. The 6.2L V-8 is standard on High Country and available on RST, Z71 and Premier. The new diesel engine will be available in 2025 after initial launch.

Ride-and-Handling Refinements

The multilink independent rear suspension design introduced on the current Tahoe and Suburban has been updated to provide more refined ride-and-handling dynamics.

Other features include:

  • Additional steering calibration improvements offer a confident drive experience across conditions.
  • The Air Ride Adaptive Suspension is available on High Country and Z71, along with RST for the first time. It offers automatic load-leveling and ride-height adjustment. In highway driving, it automatically lowers the ride height to help reduce aerodynamic drag, which can help enhance efficiency. Driver-selectable heights can reduce entry/exit heights when the vehicle is parked, and the driver can also raise the body for additional ground clearance when driving off-road.
  • With Magnetic Ride Control, which is standard on Premier and High Country and available on RST and Z71, sensors continually “read” the road 1,000 times a second to alter the damping rate of the shocks almost instantly. It is one of the fastest-reacting damping systems in the industry and helps reduce pitch, body roll and vibrations that can resonate in a large SUV.

Trailering Technologies: Tow With Confidence

A Max Trailering package is available and on select trims includes a high-capacity radiator and cooling fan, an integrated trailer brake controller, Hitch View, Hill Decent Control, Blind Zone Steering Assist with Trailering, and the Chevrolet Trailering App.

Tahoe and Suburban will also introduce the following new and enhanced features:

  • Trailer Tire Health, which helps prevent trailer tire blowouts with a trailer tire life monitor and over-speed warning.
  • Mobile Trailering App Load Rating Info, which offers anytime/anywhere access to the vehicle’s load rating.
  • Forward Path Indication, which helps drivers navigate with their trailer with guidelines on the Surround View to indicate the width of the trailer and the trailer’s path. When the turn signal is activated, guidelines will show the driver the estimated turning path for both the vehicle and trailer.
  • Boat Ramp Assist, which helps customers access a checklist and step-by-step instructions to prepare for towing, launching, and retrieving a boat, is newly available within the trailering app.
  • Trailer Navigation, which calculates routes based on trailer size using built-in Google Maps.

The 2025 Tahoe continues to offer max towing range of 8,400 lbs and Suburban offers 8,200 lbs.

Enhanced safety and technology

The 2025 Tahoe and Suburban will have a new sensor that can detect certain types of motion in the vehicle, which can help identify if a passenger has been left in the rear passenger areas of the vehicle.   

Other safety features include:

  • Interior Motion Detection: It may detect certain types of micro-movements in the cabin. If movement is detected in the vehicle after it is in park and turned off, it can progressively escalate alerts to help raise awareness. 
  • Connected Cameras: A newly available feature, comprises a fully integrated network of cameras that allow customers to remotely view the interior and exterior of their vehicle, including 360-degree views of the exterior.
  • Chevy Safety Assist: a suite of safety features and driver assistance technologies that include Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian and Bicyclist Braking, and IntelliBeam. Additional standard safety features include Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist, HD Surround Vision, Teen Driver and Buckle to Drive. 
  • Super Cruise: The industry’s first true hands-free driving driver assistance technology will be available in 2025 after initial launch. Super Cruise is available on more than 400,000 miles of roads in the U.S. and Canada.
  • AutoSense Power Liftgate: This feature makes loading a Tahoe or Suburban easier when the user’s arms are full by automatically opening the liftgate when it senses the key fob behind the vehicle.

Built Exclusively by GM’s Arlington Assembly Team

Production will occur at GM’s Arlington Assembly plant, in Texas — a facility celebrating 70 years of production in 2024.

Announced earlier this year, GM is investing more than $500 million in the Texas facility to strengthen its industry-leading full-size SUV business. 

Through this more than half-a-billion-dollar investment, Arlington Assembly will receive new tooling and equipment in its stamping, body shop, and general assembly areas. GM has announced nearly $2 billion in investments for Arlington Assembly since 2013.

The all-new 2025 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban go on sale late 2024.
