Chevy Tahoe Towing Capacity – Standard 5.3L V8

The Chevy Tahoe boasts a standard 5.3L V8 engine that produces up to 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque @ 4,100 RPM. This engine also boasts Dynamic Fuel Management technology and comes mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Here are the maximum Chevy Tahoe towing capacities it engenders:

  • Tahoe with 5.3L V8 and 2WD & Max Trailering Pkg: 8,400 lbs
  • Tahoe with 5.3L V8 and 4WD & Max Trailering Pkg: 8,200 lbs

Chevy Tahoe Towing Capacity – Available 6.2L V8

Choosing the available Tahoe 6.2L V8 engine provides a considerable amount more power. In fact, the upgraded 2021 Tahoe engine delivers up to 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque @ 4,100 RPM. As is the case with the standard Tahoe engine, the 6.2L comes mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. That said, despite its larger size, maximum towing capacity is fairly similar to that of the 5.3L-equipped Tahoe:

  • Tahoe with 6.2L V8 and 2WD & Max Trailering Pkg: 8,300 lbs 
  • Tahoe with 5.3L V8 and 2WD & Max Trailering Pkg: 8,100 lbs

Remember, though, the maximum Tahoe towing capacities cited earlier require the Max Trailering package. The Tahoe Max Trailering package adds the following to your Tahoe:
