2022 Chevy and GMC Full-Size SUVs Add New Tech, More V-8 Options
The Tahoe, Suburban, and Yukon all receive updates including bigger screens, new paint colors, and increased availability of the 6.2-liter V-8.
For 2022, Chevrolet’s Tahoe and Suburban full-size SUVs are receiving a raft of updates. The biggest news is the increased availability of the 6.2-liter V-8, which continues to be standard on the top-of-the-line High Country but can now be fitted to the RST, Z71, and Premier trim levels. Choosing the 6.2-liter in the RST also adds GM’s Magnetic Ride Control damping system, which is available on the Z71 and standard on the Premier and High Country. View Photos Chevrolet
All models besides the High Country continue with the 5.3-liter V-8 as the standard engine, and all models except the Z71 can be optioned with the Duramax 3.0-liter turbodiesel six-cylinder. 2022 also brings a newly optional electronic limited-slip differential, which will be available on the Z71 trim and can be used in the 4WD Low setting.
Inside the Tahoe and Suburban is a new 12.3-inch screen, which will come standard on all trims starting except for the base LS. There will also be Google apps such as Assistant, Maps, and Play built into the infotainment systems on the LT trim and above. The Tahoe and Suburban will also now have 13 unique camera views, including some meant to help with towing. Park assist, lane-keep assist, and lane departure warning are now standard on all 2022 Tahoe and Suburbans, as is Buckle to Drive, which requires drivers and front passengers to put on their seatbelt before the SUV can be put in gear.

The Tahoe and Suburban’s corporate cousins, the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, gain similar upgrades for the 2022 model year. The 6.2-liter V-8 becomes available on the AT4 trim with the dual exhaust, while the interior gains a standard 12.0-inch display across the lineup. The Google-based tech is standard in the 2022 Yukon too, and a power-sliding center console is standard on the Denali.
The Yukon now comes in Redwood Metallic and the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban add Evergreen Gray Metallic, Auburn Metallic, and Dark Ash Metallic paint colors. GMC says it will share more info on the 2022 Yukon soon, and the Chevy models will begin production in October.
