How many pounds can the 2022 Chevy Tahoe tow? It depends on the drivetrain and configuration you select, but it’s worth noting from the outset that the 2022 Chevy Tahoe towing capacity tops out at 8,400 pounds. Moreover, every model in the lineup can tow at least 8,000 pounds when properly equipped. Since the Chevy Tahoe’s maximum payload rating comes in at 1,834 pounds, this is one SUV that’s truly ready for anything.

How Many Pounds Can The 2022 Chevy Tahoe Tow?

As we noted up top, the Chevy Tahoe towing capacity is dependent upon your choice of configuration:

6.2L V8

  • 420 horsepower
