The all-new 2025 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban launch in late 2024 with fresh designs inside and out, a more powerful diesel engine option available later in production, and technology enhancements designed to provide greater confidence and security for public sector fleet drivers behind the wheel.

The 2025 Tahoe and Suburban at a Glance

Key highlights and features on the all-new Tahoe and Suburban include:

  • Freshened exterior design with bolder signature lighting and all-new lighting animations, new available 24-in. wheels, and more.
  • New interior design centered on an all-new 17.7-in.-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% more horsepower than current models, which will be available later in production.
  • Ride and handling enhancements engineered for greater driving refinement.
  • Enhanced safety technology includes Connected Cameras, a fully integrated network of cameras that allow fleets to remotely view the interior and exterior of the vehicle, in addition to recording events like crash and theft.

A Look at the Exterior Features

All six trims — the LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country — received a new front fascia. The Z71 — one of the nameplates’ fastest-selling trims — incorporates skid plates and a high-approach front fascia, while the High Country leans in on a sport-luxury theme, with a balance of black and Galvano chrome trim.

New 24-in. wheel designs, available for the first time on RST and High Country, further contribute to the Tahoe and Suburban’s updated style.

New front and rear lighting are also among the enhancements' on the SUVs' design.

Highlights of the lighting upgrades 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.

Tech-Focused, Revamped Interior

The technology focus of the other recently introduced Chevrolet models is also present in the vehicles. Display screens are the centerpiece of the cabin, starting with an all-new standard 17.7-in.-diagonal freeform infotainment screen paired with the 11-in.-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.

What's New Under the Hood

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 hp and 495 lb.-ft. of peak torque, increases of 10% and 7.6%, respectively, over the current diesel engine’s 277 hpand 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 contribute to the engine’s enhanced power.

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.

Refined Ride and Handling for Passengers

The multilink independent rear suspension design introduced on the current Tahoe and Suburban has been updated to provide more refined ride-and-handling dynamics. Additional steering calibration improvements offer a more confident drive experience across conditions.

“The already excellent ride-and-handling characteristics enabled by the independent rear suspension are taken to the next level with the 2025 Tahoe and Suburban,” Chief Engineer Martin Hayes said. “Their responsiveness makes them feel much nimbler than their full-size dimensions suggest.”

Air Ride Adaptive Suspension and Magnetic Ride Control return as available features.

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.

Tow Your Load with Confidence

The Tahoe and Suburban will continue to include the trailering technologies well-known by customers.

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 5, Hill Decent Control 5, Blind Zone Steering Assist with Trailering 5, and the Chevrolet Trailering App.

The 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 for Peace of Mind

The 2025 Tahoe and Suburban are expected to offer more safety and driver awareness technology than in previous models — including a new sensor that can detect certain types of motion in the vehicle, which can help identify if a passenger has been left in rear passenger areas of the vehicle.   

Interior Motion Detection, new to GM, 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.

Key benefits include automatic Crash Recording; Security Recording; Live View; My Recordings (dash cam functionality); industry-first cloud storage, and more. Camera views and recordings are accessible via the myChevrolet mobile app. Some features require an appropriate OnStar plan.  

The Tahoe and Suburban will continue to offer standard 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.
  • IntelliBeam.

Additional standard safety features include Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist, HD Surround Vision, and Buckle to Drive.

Additional safety and operator convenience technology highlights include:

  • 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 fleet operator's arms are full by automatically opening the liftgate when it senses the key fob behind the vehicle.

The 2025 Tahoe and Suburban are connected by OnStar, which offers a variety of available safety, entertainment, and convenience features, including Super Cruise functionality, 24/7 access to live OnStar advisors, on-demand vehicle diagnostics, and more.

Built Exclusively in the Lonestar State

Production of the all-new 2025 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will take place at GM’s Arlington Assembly plant in Texas. The facility celebrates 70 years of production in 2024.

Announced earlier this year, GM is investing more than $500 million in the Texas facility to strengthen its 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 next year. Additional details, including pricing, will be announced closer to the start of production.
