After three years without a show, Thank you, Covid! Finally, the Detroit Auto Show is making an appearance. However, it appears to be more focused on special editions the first time it has returned. Following Jeep, Chevrolet also announced the Tahoe RST Performance Edition – one that packs greater power and speed than the regular RST and, most importantly, has a variety of excellent features from police cars from PPV.
What makes the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe RST Performance Edition Particular? In terms of both the exterior and interior, there’s not nothing that distinguishes it from the Performance Edition from other Tahoe RST models. However, the model does have the white “RST” logo on its tailgate at the rear and regular sport pedals within.
The car comes with a range of suspension, chassis, and other components that are part of the pursuit-rated Tahoe PPV package designed for police forces. On the first list are the springs that are police-spec, tuned dampers and the police-spec calibrations for the chassis – modifications that reduce the vehicle’s ride in the rear by 0.4 inches (10 millimeters) in front and 0.8 millimeters (20 millimeters) on the back. It’s mounted on specific 20-inch aluminum wheels, finished in black, and covered with Firestone Firehawk Pursuit 275/55R20 tires. As with the PPV cars, it can also use the Brembo brakes, with its distinctive Torch Red calipers, and it is equipped as part of the usual luxury package.
What is the Performance Edition Comparable to The Standard Tahoe RST? Like the 2022 Tahoe RST, the new Performance Edition is powered by the 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 433 horsepower and 467 pounds-feet of torque.
However, compared to the RST Performance edition, the Performance edition is equipped with an additional 13 horsepower and seven pound-feet of torque, creating the fastest Tahoe ever. It’s also more efficient than RST and can go from 0-60 speed in 5.78 seconds, down from 5.9, and the maximum speed was increased to an impressive 124 mph on the track.
In comparison, the base RST can only reach 112 mph. It also runs one quarter-mile in 14.2 minutes at 97mph, whereas the base RST runs it in 14.4 seconds and 97 speed. The brake time was also improved, and the Performance version only requires 133 feet for going from 60 to 0mph; in contrast, the base RST requires 139.4 feet.
How Much Will The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe RST Performance Edition Price? The brand new 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe RST Performance Edition first debuted in 2022 at the Detroit Auto Show. It will begin production during the 4th quarter of 2022 at the GM Arlington Assembly in Texas.
