At next month’s Dubai motor show starting form November 14, Chevrolet will launch the most powerful Tahoe to date packing a motor shared with the Chevrolet Camaro SS and the Corvette.

The 2018 RST (the name stands for Rally Sport Truck) will be available additionally with the brand’s Magnetic Ride Control suspension system and the new 10-speed automatic transmission, along with the 420 horsepower 6.2-litre V8.

Chevrolet says the truck is capable of zero to 100km/h in just over six seconds, thanks in part to smaller steps between gear ratios, and 22-inch wheels shod with Bridgestone tyres. Other tricks include a Borla performance exhaust system and Brembo brakes with six-piston aluminum callipers griping massive discs measuring 410mm in diameter — those brakes are bigger than your Civic’s 16-inch wheel. Then again, you do have to work with 2.5 tonnes here…

As for that new suspension, the 2018 Tahoe RST reads the road every millisecond so the adaptive electronically controlled dampers can adjust on the fly and keep the ride comfortable despite low-profile tyres.

Standing apart from regular Tahoes, the RST is available in a matte pearl effect paint finish, and with all the bits that are normally chrome eliminated for what Chevrolet reckons is a “street performance” look. Apart from that you also get a blacked out grille and a black Chevy bow tie badge, black roof rails, window trim, and mirror caps.

Chevrolet Middle East says the truck’s making its debut in our region thanks to customer demand. “Since the announcement of the Tahoe RST for the US market earlier this year, we have been overwhelmed by the reaction from regional Chevrolet customers and fans,” says head of Chevrolet Middle East Ahmed Soudodi. “Presenting the Tahoe RST at the region’s biggest automotive show caters to their requests,” he adds.
