Drivers are demanding strong and reliable engine performance from their SUVs.

Both strength and reliability can be found in the top-of-the-line 6.2 V8 Chevy Tahoe Premier RST Performance Edition and Chevy Suburban Premier Plus Edition. (Note: The Suburban Premier Plus Edition is an optional package on the Suburban Premier trim level.)

Both the 2019 Tahoe RST and 2019 Suburban Premier Plus are for sale in Sherman at Sherman Chevrolet, our community dealership serving North Texas and the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.

The 6.2L V8, also called the L86 V8, is built for heavy-duty capabilities as well as travel. This engine, reports GM Authority, “is part of GM’s Gen V Small Bock engine design that’s known in trucks as EcoTec3, replacing the Vortec line.” Featuring direct injection, cylinder deactivation and continuous variable valve timing, the 6.2L V8 EcoTec3 L86 delivers 420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. These characteristics complement the swanky, high-end Tahoe Premier and Suburban Premier Plus trims.

Built for maximum fuel efficiency, the EcoTec3 has superb city/highway fuel economy.

While the Chevy Suburban Premier retains the standard 5.3L V8, the Suburban Premiere Plus includes the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine.

In addition, the Suburban Premiere Plus has these features for 2019:

  • 10-speed automatic transmission, high-capacity air cleaner
  • 170 amp alternator
  • 3.23 rear axle ratio
  • 2-speed active transfer case (4WD only)
  • Trailer brake controller
  • 22″ x 9″ 12-spoke alloy wheels with a polished finish

The Suburban Premiere Plus also comes with an Open Road Package consisting of:

  • Additional 9 months of Sirius XM Radio and NavTraffic service
  • Power sunroof and rear seat entertainment system
  • Power-retractable assist steps
  • Black roof rack cross rails
  • Polished exhaust tip
  • Jet black/mahogany brown perforated leather-appointed interior seating
  • Second row power release bucket seat
  • 8″ enhanced Driver Information Center
  • Head-Up Display and cargo area organizer.

The 2019 Chevy Tahoe RST is a standout. Besides being outfitted with the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine, this popular model comes with these important driver features:
10-speed automatic transmission
High-capacity air cleaner
170-amp alternator
