The Tahoe is a staple in the Chevy lineup. It’s America’s best-selling full-size SUV, having been in production since 1992. New for 2017 is the Midnight Edition, joining the Silverado, Colorado, Equinox, Trax and Suburban. It’s quite a popular trim package, given its commanding presence.
During our week with the Tahoe Z71 Midnight Edition, without a doubt, we were noticed. The big, black Tahoe is often mistaken for an undercover cop judging by the way people would get out of our way. The Midnight Edition certainly has an intimidation factor. That is due to the black mesh grille, black bowties, black roof rack cross rails, and 18-inch black painted aluminum wheels with off-road tiers. If you opt for the LT Midnight Edition it’ll come with less aggressive 20-inch wheels with all-season tires.
Of course, the Midnight Edition is an appearance package with no performance enhancements. It comes with the standard 5.3 liter V8 and 6-speed transmission. It’s adequate, but I wouldn’t call it speedy. If you’re wanting fast, consider the Tahoe RST. The Tahoe is in its fourth generation since 2014. It’s nice to see more frequent updates. 2017 brings a refreshed exterior design, some interior updates, and the most recent infotainment system. Special editions and packages add some individuality to an otherwise standard large SUV.
