Chevy Tahoe
is a great vehicle for towing trailers. With a V8 under the hood, your Tahoe shouldn’t have any issues towing most trailers, no matter what model year you get. But to give you a better idea of what Tahoe may work for you, here’s the Chevy Tahoe towing capacity by year:
  • First generation (1992-1999) = up to 7,800 pounds
  • Second generation (2000-2007) = up to 7,900 pounds
  • Third generation (2008-2014) = up to 8,200 pounds
  • Fourth generation (2015-2020) = up to 8,600 pounds
  • Fifth generation (2021-present) = up to 8,400 pounds
The amount of towing capacity will vary depending on the engine, transmission, and whether you buy the 2WD or 4WD model.
