2022 Chevrolet Tahoe towing a boat


The Chevrolet Tahoe offers Sterling Heights drivers a comfortable interior, sturdy construction, and plenty of passenger and cargo room. Towing is just one more thing that this full-frame SUV does exceptionally well! The 2022 Chevy Tahoe towing capacity, when properly configured, can safely reach up to 8,400 pounds.

This is similar to what you might expect from a full-size pickup like the Silverado 1500, largely because the Tahoe is built with a similar level of frame reinforcement and engine power. Additionally, the maximum Chevy Tahoe payload is 1,834 pounds.
