A 2-door Full-Size SUV? this sounds like a too-bold idea for now. However, after seeing the latest rendering of the 2-door Chevrolet Tahoe, which according to some sources will be the 2022 Chevy Tahoe SS, I think this idea is not that bad, considering last year Tesla did a more “weird” thing to its truck design, namely the Tesla Cybertruck. So, what do we know about this 2-door SUV?
Does this Tahoe SS really exist?
Does the Tahoe SS exist? For now, the answer is NO; all information currently on the internet is based on speculation and rumors. But still, this indicates that GM could be serious about producing it.
The Story Behind Chevy Tahoe
Before we let you know about the details of the 2022 Chevy Tahoe SS, we’d love to take you back a little step. It is nice to track the story of Chevy Tahoe, so you will understand how amazing the car is. The Chevy Tahoe was redesigned and renamed from the full-size Blazer in 1994. That is why today, this car has become popular as a full-size SUV, especially SUV family.
The first generation was in 1995 until General Motors launched the second generation in March 2000. This second generation was a result of the redesign of the previous one. Several touches which updated at that moment were the grille, headlights, and body-side moldings. In late 2005, the hybrid version was finally released as its third generation.
The fourth generation came to the market in June 2013. As time goes by, the company becomes more concerned about efficiency. This is proven in the fifth generation, which is still counted. The last generation was introduced in December 2019 as the 2020 model. Surprisingly, the new 2022 Tahoe is about in front of your eyes.
2022 Chevy Tahoe SS Concept Design
Knowing that General Motors is consistent in making some improvements, you might expect great things from this 2022 Chevy. For those curious about it, let’s check below what you probably find in the upcoming new version.
The first thing that immediately catches your eye when you see a photo rendering of the Tahoe SS is that this SUV only has two doors, a very aggressive design, in my opinion.
Moreover, a high-gloss black finish in the painting completes its appearance. The new Chevy Tahoe has been lowered with a new model to get the adoption of Air Ride Adaptive Suspension.
There is also Magnetic Ride Control paired to complement the more output on tap. Also, a new black front grille, a quad exhaust treatment, and a unique rear make the look more impressive.

The Chevy Tahoe doesn’t only look bigger outside. You will get the same feeling when inside the cabin.
The seat and cargo are also increasing, so your family members or friends are possibly more comfortable during the trip.
Compared to the old model, the new one has more than half a foot longer. It provides more expansive legroom for the second and the third row too.
Don’t be worry about the cargo. It is surprising because there is more space inside. Chevy put a 10-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot if you are asking about the entertainment.
You can choose any music on your phone while driving. We assure you your trip will be fun because your music comes out from the powerful Bose audio system inside.
This car might be using the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4. That was good enough to give you a powerful vehicle that equals 650 horsepower. Face the vehicle with its smaller siblings. You will find the same things, such as automatic stop-start, variable valve timing, direct fuel injection, and the modern cylinder deactivation system named “GM Dynamic Fuel Management.”
Many people predict that the new 2022 Tahoe will become an efficient SUV car in its class. The power train offers you the 3.0-liter diesel available in any model, except the Z71. Also, the inline-six will burn oil with an impressive rating of 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This car has been paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission to make the performance more efficient.
2022 Chevy Tahoe SS Release Date and Price
As I said before, so far, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe SS is still rumored. We don’t have data for when the Tahoe SS will be produced or even launched. Looking at the condition of the world economy, which is currently in recession, I can’t expect that GM will do this. It’s too risky.
however, if one day this two-door SUV will be produced, then we expect it to cost no more than $40,000
That was all you know about the New Chevy Tahoe SS. The conclusion I can say is that this car has not been produced yet, nor has the manufacturer given an opinion on the possibility of production. It’s interesting to see this 2-door SUV on the streets, but it looks like we still have to wait for.
