Predictions of Powertrain and the Possibility of the Future Tahoe EV
The current Tahoe generation used to went through release delays for its 2021 model, which was launched in the latter part of 2020. This launch marked the coming of Z71 and RST to the trim range from package and the introduction of the fully-loaded High Country trim, as additions to the already existing LS, LT, and Premier trims. This scope of trim grades is expected to be retained by the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe, making it officially the model with the most diverse trim range in its segment.
For its whole life, the Tahoe has been always equipped with a V8 engine, which is currently provided with three options: a 5.3L gasoline engine that produces 355 HP, a 6.2L gasoline engine that produces 420 HP, and a 3L I6 Duramax diesel engine that produces 277 HP and 460 lb-ft of torque, even though the latest option is not available for the Z71 trim. These powertrain alternatives are expected to be carried by the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe as well.
General Motors has revealed its plan of expanding its lineup of electric and autonomous vehicles with a total of $35 billion investment and owning a manufacturing plant with over 1 million EV capacities, a number that exceeds even the sales of Tesla in the United States. As the automaker has announced the coming of the Silverado EV and GMC Hummer EV, it seems like the launch of the Chevy Tahoe EV is imminent.

The features of both electrified models are also expected to be similar. However, it is possible that by the time an electrified version of the Chevy Tahoe arrives, GM has stepped upon its power and technology features already.
