How Many Pounds Can the Chevy Tahoe Tow?

The 2023 Chevy Tahoe’s towing capacity depends on the engine and available drivetrain. Two-wheel drive vehicles usually have higher towing capabilities than four-wheel drive versions. Gasoline versus diesel power will also affect the engine size versus its power, particularly with turbo-diesel varieties.

You’ve got several options available with the 2023 Chevy Tahoe based on your needs. However, all of the engines in the Chevy Tahoe come within 400 pounds of towing capacity among the six combinations of drivetrains. If you want better handling on slick or winter roads, we recommend investing in a 4WD version.
