2017 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Get Midnight Edition
The Midnight Edition option, a popular specialty model, will be added to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban lineup for the 2017 model year.
The two full-size SUVs join the Silverado, Colorado, Equinox and Trax as Chevrolet models to receive the Midnight Edition treatment. Chevy says that Midnight Edition vehicles are among the fastest-selling of their special edition vehicles.
The blacked-out package comes in two variants: the Z71 Midnight package and the LT Midnight package.
The Z71 Midnight and LT Midnight Packages
The Z71 Midnight Package starts out as any regular vehicle with a Z71 option package from Chevy would. It includes all features normally found such as: off-road tires, a suspension tuned for off-roading, skid plates, sill plates, off-road tubular assist steps, tow hooks, hill descent control, a high capacity air cleaner, fog lamps, and Z71 badging.
But a Z71 Midnight package adds some exclusive features to the Tahoe and Suburban, including: 18-inch black Z71 wheels, a black grille insert, roof rack cross rails, and black Chevy bow tie logos. The 2017 Tahoe Z71 Midnight Edition will get Goodyear DuraTrac off-road tires.
Again, the LT Midnight package starts with all of the features found on the traditional LT trim level of the 2017 Suburban and Tahoe. But the Midnight Edition will add all-season tires, 20-inch black wheels, roof rack cross rails, black assist steps, and black bow tie logos.
The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban
Chevy called these two full-size SUVs "natural candidates" for the Midnight Edition special edition treatment due to their history and importance to the brand. Chevrolet says that, together, the Tahoe and Suburban account for 50 percent of all full-size SUVs sold in the U.S.
New for the 2017 model year, both of these vehicles feature a standard Teen Driver feature, new apps via Chevrolet MyLink, front active aero shutters, and optional Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking.
Midnight Edition Pricing and Availability
The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Midnight Editions will roll into showrooms in late 2016. Pricing won't be announced until closer to their on-sale dates, but Midnight Editions from Chevy have cost around $1,600 to $2,000 more in the past.
The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe starts at $48,410 and the 2017 Chevrolet Suburban has a starting MSRP of $51,110. Both prices include a $1,195 destination charge.
