What can I tow with my Chevy Tahoe?

There's no denying that summer is one of the best times to travel, especially if you live around the greater Cottonwood or Phoenix, AZ areas . Sure there's plenty to do and see in the scenic Coconino National Forest, but if you're like a lot of folks in our neck of the woods, you're ready to hitch up your camping trailer or boat and make a break for the nearest sandy stretch of beach or some of the verdant national parks up north for some vacation time. Fortunately, the new Chevy Tahoe for sale at our dealership near Sedona is more than well-equipped to ferry you to your favorite vacation destinations, and we'll help you learn more about all the gear it can help you bring along.

Now, one of the most important specs and figures you can know about the new Chevy Tahoe is its towing capacity. When properly outfitted with its EcoTec3 5.3-liter V8 engine, the new Chevy Tahoe can tow up to 8,600 pounds. Now, compared to some of our new pickup trucks like the Chevy Silverado 2500HD, which can haul up to a whopping 18,500 pounds on a trailer, that might not seem like much, but trust us when we say that in most cases, it's more than enough.

For example, let's say you're looking to take your next camping trip with something like an Airstream trailer. These rounded, shiny campers are eminently popular for overland travel, so can the Chevy Tahoe handle them? Well, by and large, it can! Even some of the largest models only clock in around 7,788 pounds, so you'll have plenty of breathing room between the upper limits of the new Chevy Tahoe's towing capacity.

But what about a boat for your next aquatic excursion? If you're looking to get out on the water, you'll have to consider both the weight of the boat trailer and the watercraft itself. With a pair of jetskis and a trailer, you might be looking at about 2,000 pounds, which is well within range for the Chevy Tahoe. In fact, even most 18 to 20-foot boats clock in around the 5,000 to 6,000 pound range, making it no trouble for the new Chevy Tahoe to move them.

Of course, campers and boats are just a few of the things that the Chevy Tahoe can help you tow along on your next adventure. To find out what other new doors this full-size SUV can open for you, drop by Larry Green Chevrolet today.
