Especially in the third row
Last year, Chevrolet launched the all-new 2020 Suburban and Tahoe which ride on a new truck platform. These cars got refreshed styling, a new interior, and improved driving dynamics. But there has always been one issue regarding these gas-guzzlers: customers want more interior space. Well, the good news is that Chevrolet announced in a recently released video that the Tahoe will be getting significantly more interior space, especially in the third row.
The video, which is around 30 seconds long, details the new interior improvement that will allow third-row passengers to enjoy a "first-class" driving experience.
The video shows a bunch of people entering the car after a day at the lake. The two passengers aiming for the third-row seats hit the available power-release button located inside the door sill right behind the second-row seats which quickly grants them access to their seats. You can see just how easy it is to get in and out of the Tahoe, while the second-row seating also offers more slide space.
"With a wider entry via the power-release second-row seats that quickly fold down, gaining access to the third row is easier, and now offers up to 41% more third-row legroom," says the narrator. That's saying something when the Tahoe already provides ample space.
The 20201 Tahoe offers a significant increase of 10.1 inches in the third row up to 34.9 inches compared to the previous generation's 24.8 inches. Third-row passengers also get 1.15 inches of extra shoulder room, as well as 0.7 inches of hip room and a whole 0.1 inches of headroom for a total of 63.75 inches, 50 inches, and 38.2 inches respectively. Other passengers get more space as well: there's 1.45 inches of extra first-row shoulder room and a massive 10.2 inches of cargo space.
The Tahoe is still offered with three engine choices, namely the 5.3-liter L84 V8, the 6.2-liter L87, and finally the turbodiesel 3.0-liter longitudinal six.
