Tow Up to 8,400 Pounds With Ease
When properly equipped, the Chevy Tahoe has everything it needs to tow 8,400 pounds of cargo. What do we mean by the proper equipment, though? Let’s take a look.
A powerful engine
The 2021 Tahoe offers 5.3L and 6.2L V8 engines that bring plenty of capability. The standard 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine generates 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque and delivers on that 8,400-pound maximum towing capacity.
As for the available 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine, it produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. This engine can help you tow up to 8,300 pounds with the proper equipment.
The right trailering equipment
If you’re going to tow with your Tahoe, you’ll want to have the right trailer equipment. As a standard, this SUV comes with a trailer hitch platform and a 7-wire harness with independent fused trailer circuits mated to a 7-way sealed connector. It also has a 2-inch trailer receiver, as well as Hitch Guidance, which can be accessed through your infotainment system.
A nimble driveline
To reach that maximum towing capacity of 8,400 pounds with your Chevy Tahoe, you’ll want to opt for the available 2-wheel drive (2WD) system. This driveline increases wheel-grip and overall handling, so even if you’re towing in the rain or on grass or gravel, you’ll keep a steady traction control.
Store More Cargo in the Back
If you’re towing a dinghy or camper, then you also need space for everything else you’re bringing along on your outdoor getaway. Fortunately, there’s ample room behind the front seats for luggage and other gear.
In total, there are 122.9 cubic feet of space for cargo inside the Chevy Tahoe. The available power-release second-row and power-fold third-row seats make it easier than ever to fold down the back rows and make room for your bags.
Chevy Tahoe Towing Technology
When it’s time to hitch up your trailer and hit the road, the technology that comes with the Tahoe keeps it simple. The available Surround View Monitor helps you get a good look when aligning your trailer with your hitch. It offers nine available camera views, including a top-town bird’s-eye view of your surroundings as well as a hitch view.
While you drive, standard Electronic Trailer Sway Control can help keep your trailer steady when you travel down a windy highway or a back road with plenty of curves.
Tow Your Own Way with the 2021 Tahoe
There’s no reason to leave your trailer and favorite off-road bikes and campers at home when you have a capable towing machine on your side. The 2021 Chevy Tahoe towing capacity can tackle big hauling jobs and even bigger fun.
