Chevrolet is expanding its popular specialty models to include Midnight Editions of its segment-defining Tahoe and Suburban full-size SUVs. With years of heritage to build on, Chevrolet continues to forge ahead in sales and share with these two storied full-size SUV entries. Tahoe retail sales are currently up 18 percent compared to 2015, while Suburban sales are up 30 percent compared to 2015. Market share for Suburban and Tahoe has risen a combined 3.6 percent this year, and Chevrolet continues to lead the segment.
Together, these two vehicles represent about 50 percent of all full-size SUVs sold in the U.S.
The Suburban and Tahoe join the Silverado, Colorado, Equinox and Trax as part of the growing portfolio of Chevrolet Midnight Edition vehicles, among the fastestselling of Chevrolet’s special editions.
These two iconic vehicles were natural candidates for the special edition treatment due to their lineage and importance to the Chevrolet brand – Tahoe is the best-selling full-size SUV in America and Suburban is the longest running nameplate in automotive history since the vehicle’s inception in 1935.
The Midnight Edition Suburban and Tahoe fullsize SUVs are offered in two distinct variants, the Z71 Midnight package and the LT Midnight package. All Midnight Edition vehicles are finished exclusively in black. The Z71 Midnight includes all of the features found on the Z71 Package including off-road tuned suspension, off-road tires, skid plates, off-road tubular assist steps, fog lamps, tow hooks, sill plates, 3.42 axle, 2-speed transfer case, floor mats, hill descent control, high capacity air cleaner, Z71 badging and more. The Midnight Edition adds 18” black-painted Z71 wheels, roof rack cross rails, black grille insert, and black Chevrolet “bow tie” logos. The Z71 Midnight Tahoe also comes equipped with aggressive Goodyear DuraTrac off-road tires.
The LT Midnight includes all of the features found on both the LT trim levels of Suburban and Tahoe and adds 20” black wheels, allseason tires, roof rack cross rails, black assist steps and black Chevrolet “bow tie” logos.
“Our SUV customers have shown a considerable appetite for specialty vehicles,” said Mike Weidman, marketing and advertising manager, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe. “The Midnight Editions allow us to further deliver on the premium expectation that our customers already have for these class-leading full-size SUVs.”
