2018 Chevrolet Tahoe Custom given the Midnight Edition treatment
It gains an all-black appearance and rugged styling cues
Following the Tahoe and Suburban Midnight Editions, Chevrolet is giving the Tahoe Custom a similar sinister treatment.
Introduced last year, the Tahoe Custom is a value-focused model that drops the third-row seats for an increased cargo volume behind the second row of 54 cu ft and a higher towing capacity of 6,000 lb (expandable to 8,600 lb with the max trailering package).
Customers can now add style to the Tahoe Custom's utility with the new Midnight Edition that brings off-road-inspired styling cues along with an all-black Midnight appearance. Design highlights include 18-inch black wheels shod with Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, black grille and bowtie emblems, and off-road assist steps.
Based on the LS trim level, the 2018 Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition comes with a series of connectivity features as standard. Those include an 8-inch touchscreen-based infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot capability, up to five USB ports and five power outlets, Rear Vision Camera, remote start, and Teen Driver mode.
Safety-wise, the Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition offers the available Enhanced Driver Alert Package that includes features such as Forward Collision Alert, Safety Alert Seat for the driver, IntelliBeam headlamps with automatic high-beam control, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking.
The special edition Tahoe Custom is offered in 2WD and 4WD configurations, with power coming from a standard 355-hp 5.3-liter V8 engine that returns an EPA estimated 23 mpg highway.
Prices start at $45,995, including a $1,295 destination fee. The model will be available at Chevrolet dealers in spring 2018.
