Just for the record, let it be known that I love big body-on-frame traditional SUVs. I know that they’re not for everybody. I know that they’re overbuilt for everyday driving. I know that I’m part of the problem. Now that we’ve defined our terms, let’s talk about the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST Edition with 6.2L Performance Package. I recently spent a week with the RST, including a 1,200-mile road trip with my wife and our two big dogs. And guess what? I loved it.
The Tahoe RST carries a base price of $65,130. My test vehicle had a few options and packages on top of that: Sun, Entertainment, Destination Package ($2,885); RST 6.2L Performance Edition Package ($2,820); Performance Front Brake Kit ($2,795); RST Edition Package ($2,630); Eight-inch diagonal reconfigurable cluster with head-up display ($850); Cocoa Mats ($250); All-Weather Floor Liner ($250); and destination charge ($1,295) for an as-tested price of $78,450. A three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty are included. Let's take it for a drive.
