2018 TAHOE CUSTOM MIDNIGHT DELIVERS BOLD STYLING AND CAPABILITY AT AN OUTSTANDING VALUE
CHEVROLET RECENTLY ANNOUNCED THE NEW TAHOE CUSTOM MIDNIGHT EDITION, A RUGGED AND STYLISH STATEMENT FEATURING A BOLD, BLACK DESIGN AND THE SUPERIOR CAPABILITY CUSTOMERS EXPECT FROM CHEVY FULL-SIZE SUVS.
“The introduction of the Tahoe Custom last year was well-received by our customers who were looking for the capability of a full-size SUV with the added utility of increased rear cargo space,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks marketing director. “The Tahoe Custom Midnight takes the capability and value of the Custom trim and adds rugged, all-black features found on our popular Midnight Editions.”
Based on the LS trim, the Tahoe Custom Midnight features off-road-inspired styling cues along with an all-black Midnight appearance. Tahoe Custom Midnight offers 18-inch painted black wheels with aggressive Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, a black grille, off-road-assist steps and black bow tie emblems. The vehicle’s thirdrow seat was removed for additional utility, increasing cargo space behind the second row to 54 cubic feet.
Tahoe Custom Midnight also features a suite of connectivity technologies including:
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility nn 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot capability (data plan required)
8-inch diagonal color touch-screen radio nn Standard rear vision camera nn Standard remote start
Standard Teen Driver Mode
Available Enhanced Driver Alert Package that features Forward Collision Alert, Safety Alert Seat for driver, IntelliBeam headlamps with automatic high-beam control, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking
Up to five USB ports and five power outlets, including a 110-volt three-prong outlet, to support electronic devices of all kinds
Starting at an MSRP of $45,995, including a $1,295 destination fee (excludes tax, title, license and dealer fees), the 2018 Tahoe Custom Midnight is equipped with 6,600 pounds of towing capacity, a maximum of 112 cubic feet of cargo space and a 355-hp, 5.3L V-8 engine that offers an EPA-estimated 23 mpg highway.

Vehicles must be driven to staging and to scales but can be towed after scales. Trans-brake mechanisms are prohibited.
Slang term for LS-based engines, especially when talking about swaps.
