Tahoe is a full-size crossover available for just under $50,000. Of course, we can pack it with various equipment, to make it more powerful or cozier. But, when we get it all in one package, we don’t have to worry too much. The example is 2019 Chevy Tahoe Premier Plus. The new trim level includes equipment and features no other model is offering. For the upcoming season, Premier Plus package will be available only for 2019 Suburban SUV and Tahoe.
Highlights of the 2019 Chevy Tahoe Premier Plus will be a V-8 engine, special colors, and unique details inside and outside the crossover. It is using the body-on-frame platform, as the base version. Well, the regular Premier trim will also offer a 6.2-liter displacement. But, the upgraded mill is going to deliver more power. Finally, GM slaps the higher price on this version. So, if you want a Premier Plus upgrade and Tahoe is already too expensive for you, then just skip it.
2019 Chevy Tahoe Premier Plus Specs
Under the hood of the 2019 Chevy Tahoe Premier Plus will be a 6.2-liter V-8 drivetrain. The same unit is an alternative to the base engine, a 5.3-liter V-8. That is one of the things buyers love with Tahoe. It keeps using big engine instead of turbo-six.
But here, a 6.2-liter powertrain has a special treatment. For the 2019 Chevy Tahoe Premier Plus, it creates 420 horses and 460 lb-ft of torque. Instead of 6- and 8-speed transmissions, this trim will use a 10-pace gearbox. Of course, it is automatic. Besides that, the Premier Plus for Tahoe and Suburban crossovers include Magnetic Ride Control, the special suspension package.
The engine setup with a new transmission and suspension could boost the mileage. Unfortunately, a fully-packed SUV will be significantly heavier than the base model. So, the gain from a new system is not significant.

2019 Chevy Tahoe Premier Plus Price
The bad thing for all potential buyers is that Premier Plus package is going to make the price jump. Well, all fans expected that. But, Chevrolet could do better than launching the special version for $23,000 more than the base model. Yes, it is premium SUV now, but still, the price of $75,500 is a bit too high.
On the other hand, Suburban adds $26,500 over the starting price. This could be a solace for Tahoe fans that their favorite model could be even more expensive. With Premier Plus package, Chevy Suburban is above its bigger sibling.
