2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71: Start Up, Test Drive, Walkaround, POV and Review

In todays review we take a look at the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71! This is a jumbo SUV that is meant for hauling people along with being able to store a lot of items and even tow! The Chevrolet Tahoe is pretty basic even for the Z71 package, but it’s very functional with all the technology features available and overall is a great package! The exterior on this 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 has a great look with the grey along with all the black accents! The fixed running boards make it easier to enter and exit and it has a proportional look for the stretched out size! The interior like I mentioned is basic, but the touch screen offers a lot to go through and the materials are nice for the seats and all the trim accents! This 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 is a seven seater so you can pack a lot of people inside and still have plenty of room even for the third row passengers!

Hey everyone and welcome to the channel so today i’m down at hendrick lexus northlake and we’re going to take a look at their 2022 chevrolet tahoe z71 huge shout out to them for providing this massive suv for me today make sure you check out their website because they have a massive selection of new and used inventory that link is down in the description but the z71

That you see behind me is finished off in gray and they have a starting msrp right around 64 000 as we move on to what powers this tahoe now underneath the hood is the 5.3 liter v8 this is paired to the 10-speed automatic transmission and it pumps out 355 horsepower around 5600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque around 4100 rpm that power sent through the all-wheel

Drive system this weighs in right around 5600 pounds it’ll do 0-60 in 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 115 miles an hour and it has a fuel capacity of 24 gallons you’ll expect to see around 15 miles per gallon in the city and 20 out on the highway this has a wheelbase of 120.9 inches its overall length is 210.7 it has a width of 81 a height of 75.9 and its ground

Clearance measures in at 8 inches as we move on to the exterior styling now for the chevrolet tahoe let’s start off with the chevy badge right in the middle it has a two-tone design with black in the middle and then chrome for the surround matches nicely with the dark chrome trim that runs right through the middle of the grille leading to that z71 badge over on the

Driver’s side this has an integrated forward-facing camera to provide you with a lot more visibility especially for the size of this truck and then there are plenty of cutouts located throughout this grille with a nice pattern in that mesh again to provide more aerodynamics and cooling to that engine now this even has led headlights turn signals and drls i like how

Sleek the headlight housing is tucked away nicely in between the grille and the bodywork and then the drl and turn signal wraps around the bodywork sandwiched in between that grille and the body bodywork it gives it a really nice and sleek design there’s some more gloss black in the lower section along with parking sensors that run throughout and you can see more

Of the bodywork going right through the middle just to break that up now this has red tow hooks on both sides to match that z badge nicely along with the skid plate up underneath there’s even some cutouts on the sides as well and then you can see a little bit of that tire on both sides now the hood has some great lines running down it there’s a crisp line right

In the middle and then a few on each side just to bring it all together now as we move on to the side now this has a set of 20 inch wheels they have a multi-spoke design to them along with the two-tone finish great color combo for this exterior the tahoe badge is blacked out there’s z71 on the side as well and then the power folding side mirrors have a two-tone

Design to them they have the integrated turn signal along with another camera now up on the roof is the full moon roof as well as the black running boards and then for a look at the side profile it has a really nice proportional design there’s a line that starts at the headlight it goes above those door handles all the way to the tail lights this model even has a

Fixed set of running boards to help you enter and exit with some gloss black in that lower side skirt there’s also some crisp lines for the fender flares and another line in the lower section of that door and then as we make our way to the rear this has the body colored spoiler there’s a third brake light located there as well and the wiper blade is tucked up there

Nicely there’s some gloss black on the sides just to match with that rear glass now this does have a backup camera all the parking sensors this can even tow right around 8 200 pounds which is very impressive tail lights are on both sides we have the chevy badge right in the middle of course with more of that trim right through the middle of that power liftgate

So with the exterior for this tahoe wrapped up let’s make our way to the cargo space now you can actually open up this glass separately from the liftgate itself so over on this right side if i push on that button it will release and now you can open this up if you have some smaller items you can quickly gain access to the back which is of course great to have and

Then to open up the lip liftgate you can use that button located at the bottom or on the key fob all i need to do is double tap on this button here and you can actually double tap on that to open up the glass too so either way you can have that released and then if i push on the other one now the entire liftgate will open up and we’ll take a look at the amount of

Space that this has for a three row suv there’s actually a good amount of space behind this third row so you could easily place items here if you need to and then along with that if we lift this up you have a little bit more storage along with the tool kit so you can put some smaller items down below if you needed to now over on this passenger side you can actually

Use these to collapse the second and third row so if i just push on this left here down you will see that seat go all the way down and that gives you a nice flat surface so if you have no one in the third row you can see just how much more storage space you have and then you can also double tap this button as well and then do that to the second row so when you

Fold all of them down that definitely provides you all the interior space that you need and then you can use those same buttons to put up the third row the second row is manual so you do have to fold those back up but the third row is very quick to fold up and down there’s even a three prong outlet over on that passenger side if you need to use it and then to close

This power liftgate there’s a button over on this left side and just by pushing on that of course it will automatically close and so now let’s take a look at the interior now you can lock and unlock this vehicle with the back door handles which makes it a lot more convenient and on this door panel you can see the wood trim along with all the leather there’s gray

Stitching as well nice trim for the release handle there’s lock and unlock along with one of the window controls and this even has the bose audio sound system and there’s a split design for that storage in the door so that’s great to see and the second row actually slides forwards and backwards so you can’t get this up out of the way to gain access to the third row

Now there’s two different ways you can do this you can pull on that handle twice or there’s a hidden button on the back and if i push on that once this will automatically fold down from there you can grab this and then lift it up so that gives you an ample amount of space to enter these back seats now this tahoe has three rows for the third row so there’s an ample

Amount of room and you can see with this seat it’s not quite all the way back but there’s definitely plenty of room for your feet and even at five foot ten i have around two or three inches above my head so honestly i could be very comfortable cruising in the third row of this tahoe and have two people next to me if i need to so it is very spacious now there’s

Also a cup holder along with a usbc over on this one side same with the other side as well so definitely very roomy now as far as visibility goes that pillar is a little bulky but you can easily see out of the back window and then with that large glass right there and then obviously with the captain’s chairs in the middle you could enter in exit a third way right

Through the middle so as we make our way to the second row now i can quickly push that down and fold it back up and then it is slid all the way forwards right now so if i hop up in here use that first handle i can slide this all the way back to give your second row passengers plenty of leg room as well and so again at five foot ten i have plenty of room above my

Head we have the headrest there along with the adjustable armrest so you can easily be very comfortable for the second row now right in the middle we even have the heated seat adjustments that you can use along with the temperature dials where you like the air to to go a few modes and some auxiliaries and then in the lower section is another three-prong outlet so

You can charge electronics as you need to you can get another look at the captain’s chairs here and then there’s the air vents on both sides since it does have the full moon roof right in the middle but you definitely have a lot of area for your backseat passengers to be super comfortable now as we make our way to the driver’s seat now same as the rear door panel

With all the wood trim and the leather there’s the addition of all the window controls side mirror adjustments even lock and unlock the bose audio and a lot more storage space for that door now chevrolet is spelled out on the door sill and then we have the same black leather seats with a nice design to them very simple running down them they are automatic seats so

All those adjustments are down on the side and then with that side step makes it very easy to jump up into this truck and then looking at the steering wheel it’s completely covered in solid black leather with more of that brush trim now on this right side is bluetooth and voice commands all of these arrows are for that gauge cluster which we’ll come back to and

Then on the left side you’ll see all the crews and adaptive cruise control settings on the back side this also has the volume and tuning adjustments so tuning is over on that left side but let’s fire this up with my foot on the brake that button is over on this right side and we can bring this to life foreign and you’ll see on this massive digital gauge cluster on

The left side is the speedometer on the right side is the tack and then right in the middle you can go through a lot more info using those buttons on the right side so currently it’s showing the drive summary if i scroll down you can look at trip 1 and trip two also look at a timer there’s the tpms that you can monitor along with the driving assistance and then you

Have some other vitals that you can monitor just depending on what you need to see if i scroll over now there is music you can also pull up the compass you have your phone when you do have that paired and connected and then you can go through all these settings you can even look at the different screen styles that you can pull up so if we go to digital you will see

This change and if i go back to clean you will see it change again so just depending on the style that you like to see where pretty much everything goes away and then the last one is classic so just depending on what you like to see and how you’d like to see this information you can easily pull that up you can even monitor what you’d like to see on both sides so if

You go into the right side you can pull up all this various information and again just depending on what you like to see even the lower section where the fuel and the engine temperature is so it’s great to have all those options right in the middle and then as we work our way to the left side of the steering wheel we have quite a few buttons you’ll see we have the

Headlight adjustments along with the automatic headlights there’s a dimmer switch all the four wheel drive selectors if you twist on this mode you can go through the different driving modes like tow and haul there’s off-road sport and then the normal settings so you can quickly get through those there’s the electronic parking brake along with the lane keeping assist

Traction control you can turn on and off the parking sensors there’s a downhill assist control the engine start stop feature there’s even the power outlets that i mentioned earlier that you can turn on and off in a shortcut to the 360 camera system which we’ll come back to just above that there’s one air vent more of that wood trim and then there’s leather on the

Entire dash as we work our way to the middle now we have this touch screen system where there’s a good amount of information to go through if i click on the lower left this is basically the home screen so you’ll see these icons like the audio map you can go to phones the cameras if i swipe over we have these split screen with music and maps on that right side and

Then for the last one there’s a few other icons that you can easily get into and then on this left side you can actually set all of these so currently the upper one here is for the trailering system so when you do have a trailer hooked up you can go through that checklist just underneath that we can go to phone so again when you have that paired this offers google

Maps which is actually very easy to use so it’s just like being on your phone it is very easy to go through there’s a shortcut to music and then we are back to the home setting so it’s very simple straightforward and gives you everything that you need you’ll notice there’s more wood trim just behind that leading all the way to the passenger side there’s some more

Leather underneath that screen and then over on this left side is the gear selector so park is at the top if i just pull on reverse you’ll see that 360 camera system pop back up and there are so many different angles just depending on the visibility that you need as far as towing a trailer you have so many different angles there there’s even guidelines as well so

Just depending on what you need to see you can quickly pull all of that up you can bring it up in full screen as well or have that top-down view now to put this vehicle into drive you just pull on the d by pushing p that will go back into park there’s even a low range where you can even shift too so if you are off-roading or towing with this you can hold the gear

As needed there are two air vents right in the middle and then over on this passenger side there’s the hazards and then this little storage bin where you could place some items if you need to and then right in the middle you’ll see all these physical buttons like power and volume for the radio tuning is on the right side there’s also tuning in the middle a physical

Button for the home screen so you can quickly get back to that and then all the climate controls are nicely laid out so there’s the temperature dials on both sides fan speed is right in the middle where you like the air to go and the rest of those controls these are even heated seats as well so yeah both of those styles on each side and then you can even adjust the

Rear climates right in the middle and then at the very bottom you’ll see all those auxiliaries along with a wireless charging pad so you can place your phone there or other items that you may have there are two cup holders just behind that and as we move on to the center armrest i really love this cutout you can easily place your phone there and it won’t roll around

And then by opening this up there is a massive amount of space there’s also some auxiliary so you can charge electronics and when i remove that there is definitely a lot of space for any items you’d like to place there as we work our way to the glove box now there’s a lot more room for all that information we’ll take one last look at these seeds which have a really

Nice design to them and like i mentioned earlier this has a full moon roof so i can just use this control right in the middle to open that up it’ll go all the way to the back seat headrest which provides a lot of light also up in the middle you can slide the sunroof you can tilt it there’s also the power liftgate control so you can have that off three quarters

Or open all the way you can even fold down the third row seating with both of those dials so as you can see the third row is slightly folded because i didn’t push it all the way but you can easily put those up or down there’s the easy access when you get in and out some garage door buttons even the dome lights on both sides and then there’s some call buttons in

The very front as we set off behind the wheel now in this 2022 a chevrolet tahoe z71 this is a massive suv if you are in the market for a people hauler something that you might need to tow with at the same time and you just need this amount of space this is honestly a very practical and capable suv be one that i would consider if i needed this much space this is

Just an all-round good sized vehicle at the same time too it doesn’t feel as big as it looks from the outside just driving it around the parking lot it feels kind of like a normal sized vehicle now i will say if i look over my right shoulder there i can see that pillar that i mentioned from the third row but i can see around it i can look over my left shoulder too

So while it has this amount of size to it it’s very easy to drive so don’t let this massive size suv scare you from getting it if this is something that you actually need now of course if you dry this a lot you will get used to it and also as i make a 360 i am impressed with the steering this is such a maneuverable size that’s going to be seeing parking lots and

Things like that all the time and then when you need to it gets up and moves it’s a heavy vehicle it doesn’t have as much horsepower torque as i would think coming from a v8 engine but it got up to speed just fine so i don’t see any issues with the power that this has especially for its size but as we’re out on the road now this is very comfortable to drive it’s

Pretty quiet too the suspension is doing a great job with all the bumps that i’ve been going over so far in today’s video and it’s nice and quiet i could definitely see this being a great daily driver not only that but also all the technology features that this does have to offer especially the camera system and even the interface using this screen now we have had

Other chevrolet models for press vehicles that we’ve been able to have for a week so i’m not going to have that much time in this of course but with this system here it’s very easy to use i really like especially the google assistants and the google maps it makes it so user friendly to go through that information so there’s not a lot of bells and whistles for the

Z71 more on the upper level for the tahoe but we have a lot of the off-road technology with the four wheel drive system and everything and we do have a nice amount of information and so now as we switch over to the pov angle you can see what it’s like to be behind the wheel for the chevrolet tahoe and like i mentioned earlier this screen very nice position for it

So you can easily reach it from the driver or the passenger seat we’ll give it a little bit of gas here and about quarter throttle we are up to speed so it has a lot more potential than what i’m throwing at it today and hopefully you can tell how quiet this is to drive i really do like this it’s a jumbo suv i’ll call it because of how big it is but it’s so easy

To drive it doesn’t feel as big as it looks from the outside like i mentioned earlier so this is very easy to park or just to drive in general especially with the camera system that i showed and look at visibility from the driver’s seat you can see over that pillar and then a glance over my left shoulder you can easily see out of that window so it’s pretty open

All around which is of course great but i think that’s going to wrap it up for this walk around review and test drive behind the wheel of this 2022 chevrolet tahoe z71 once again a huge shout out to hendrick lexus northlake for providing this suv for me today again check out their website that link is down in the description and if you enjoyed today’s video give
