If the mid-90s Chevy Impala SS had been to be reincarnated as an SUV, it will be the 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST Efficiency. As I wrote in my Highway Check final month, this Tahoe provides extra energy (433 horsepower), suspension components from the Tahoe Police Pursuit Car and a little bit of styling mojo that conjures the demeanor of Chevy’s bygone muscle sedan. Many present Tahoe homeowners fondly keep in mind that Impala, and that is the closest factor to resurrecting it as a day by day driver.
On this episode of Autoblog Storage, I look at the RST Efficiency’s options, just like the 20-inch aluminum wheels, black badging, Brembo brakes (which are 25-percent bigger) and catback exhaust. I put it in perspective within the Tahoe lineup — it isn’t low-cost at $81,305 — nevertheless it provides quite a bit. Don’t overlook, it’s lowered 10 millimeters, has a limited-slip differential and four-wheel drive. All of this works with the 6.2-liter V8 to realize instances of 5.78 seconds within the dash to 60 mph and 14.2 seconds for the quarter.
