Rally Sport Truck Edition Unveiled for Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban

RST

A new special edition will soon be available for the Tahoe and Suburban — RST, or Rally Sport Truck — that will give the vehicles a street performance look and a whole lot of power.

Nearly all of the chrome trim on the full-size SUVs is eliminated, and the vehicles feature body-colored grille surround and door handles, gloss-black grille and mirror caps, as well as black roof rails, window trim, badging and bowties.

“The RST is designed for customers who want a street performance look without sacrificing capability or refinement, along with the option of increased performance as well,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Truck Marketing director, in a press release.

The Tahoe RST will be available with a new Performance Package that includes 420-hp, 6.2L V8 engine, Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration, and an all-new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission.

“When you want to hustle, it is incredibly fast, with significantly higher levels of acceleration, braking, and road-holding grip,” said Eric Stanczak, chief engineer for Chevrolet full-size trucks, in a press release.

Magnetic Ride Control is an active suspension that “reads” the road every millisecond, improving body motion control during cornering and providing a more comfortable ride while cruising.

RST also includes exclusive 22-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone P285/45R 22 tires.

Preliminary estimates suggest that the Tahoe RST package will offer a towing capacity of 8,400 pounds and it will be capable of 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds!

The vehicles will be available in the fall of 2017.
