Chevrolet is contemplating on whether to introduce RS and SS derivatives of the Tahoe.

Chevrolet is contemplating on whether to introduce RS and SS derivatives of the Tahoe.

The all-new Tahoe came out in the second half of last year and was followed by a Black concept at SEMA which brought a sportier, murdered-out look to the full-size SUV. It seems Chevrolet has some intentions of coming up with hotter Tahoe versions as Car & Driver reports RS and SS variants are in the works.

The RS would come with a more aggressive body but without any power upgrades to the V8 5.3-liter engine which generates 355 bhp (250 kW) and 383 lb-ft (519 Nm). A potential Tahoe SS would most likely feature a larger V8 6.2-liter from the 2015 GMC Yukon Denali where it outputs 420 bhp (313 kW) and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque.

These two versions haven't been confirmed so far by Chevrolet but company spokesman Michael Albano admitted they are analyzing the possibility of "developing variants of existing products that appeal to consumers and build on our performance heritage."
