2019 Chevrolet Tahoe exterior design and colors
When you look at the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe you simply know its Chevrolet. The front end holds a big bow tie on the grille and generally, all of the features are looking large. However, Tahoe SUV is based on a full-size Silverado pickup truck. Another Tahoe’s twin is GMC Yukon, above and under the skin.
The Tahoe looks rugged and robust, while the styling is looking sharp. LED daytime running lights are all-new, the grille is wider and the headlights are looking very modern.
Power running boards are available and are perfect for shorter drivers. Generally, the exterior looks upscale and it holds plenty of chrome materials that are standard. The hood is finished in aluminum and the overall weight is reduced, significantly. The cabin is quieter thanks to the new inlaid doors.

Exterior colors include Black, Blue Velvet Metallic, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Havana Metallic, Pepperdust Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat, Tungsten Metallic, Woodland Green and Wheatland Yellow.

The layout is better than before, especially the controls layout. Last year’s 8-inch touchscreen is standard and it is very responsive and user-friendly. Gear shift leveler is looking funky which comes as a surprise as the rest of the interior is modern.
The materials are premium and thanks to that, the new 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe looks sophisticated. Instrument panel sports a storage bin, behind the touchscreen and the center console is larger. The storage bin is large enough to fit a laptop inside of it. The comfort is first-class, however, leather seats are optional.
