Chevrolet unveils new Tahoe Custom special edition for 2018 model year

Published 16 August 2017

Chevrolet has unveiled a new Tahoe Custom special 2018 edition for buyers who want the capability of Chevrolet trucks and SUVs.

Priced at $44,995, the 2018 Tahoe Custom comes standard with 6,600 pounds of towing capacity (up to 8,600 pounds of towing with max trailering package), a maximum of 112 cubic feet of cargo space and a 355-hp, 5.3L V-8 engine, which delivers an expected segment-leading 23 mpg highway based on EPA estimates.

The Tahoe Custom is based on the LS trim and adds 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, all-season tires and a chrome-accented grille. Plus, Tahoe Custom features a third-row seat that has been removed, increasing cargo space behind the second row to a substantial 54 cubic feet for added utility.

“The Tahoe Custom is a response to strong customer demand for Tahoe, as well as the full-size SUV segment moving upmarket,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks marketing director. “In the past five years, the average transaction price for the segment has climbed fueled by customer appetite for features like heated and cooled seats, adaptive cruise control and a head-up display. This created an unmet need in the marketplace for customers who want the cargo and towing capability of a full-size SUV to go camping, boating or off-roading but don’t necessarily want all of the option content offered on a Tahoe Premier.”

Tahoe Custom also features a suite of connectivity technologies including:

Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility

4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot (includes three-month/3G data trial)

8-inch color touchscreen radio

Standard rear-vision camera

Standard remote start

Standard teen driver mode

Available Enhanced Driver Alert Package that features Forward Collision Alert, Safety Alert Driver Seat, IntelliBeam headlamps with automatic high-beam control, Lane Keep Assist and Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking

Up to five USB ports and five power outlets — including a 110-volt three-prong outlet —  to support electronic devices of all kinds (up to 11 charging locations)

Tahoe Custom will be available at Chevy dealers in September 2017.
