Chevy Impresses with Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition
Last summer, Chevy dazzled with the release of a special edition of the Chevy Tahoe, known as the Tahoe Custom Edition. The Tahoe was designed to focus on utility and was advertised as the perfect choice for a driver who needed a lot of towing and hauling power on a budget. After the popularity of the Custom Edition, it was no surprise when Chevy announced an even more tricked out version of this trim: the Midnight Edition of the Tahoe Custom Edition.
The Midnight Edition brings all the style and sleekness of the special Midnight package to the utility and performance of the Tahoe Custom Edition. We’ll take you through all of the style, features, and capabilities of the Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight and show you why it is the king of Chevy SUVs.
Design: Beautiful Inside and Out
The Custom Midnight Edition is based on the Chevy Tahoe LS model and gives up the third-row seating in favor of better performance and lower pricing. Black is the primary color scheme of the exterior styling of this Chevy SUV. The Custom Midnight Edition features black painted 18-inch aluminum wheels, black tubular assist steps, a black mesh grille, black bow ties, and, of course, black exterior paint. Wrangler DuraTrac tires contribute to the vehicle’s aggressive exterior appearance. To increase the SUV’s aerodynamics, there are standard front active aero shutters that engage during highway driving to improve performance.
The interior design is themed around space and utility. With the third-row seating removed there is a significant increase in cargo space, increasing the maximum cargo capacity to 54 cubic feet of storage behind the second row of seats. If you need even more cargo space, you can fold down the second row to get a whopping 112 cubic feet of cargo space—more than enough space to haul around anything you might need to take with you.
Power and Performance
The Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition comes standard with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that produces 355 horsepower. This Chevy also gets pretty impressive fuel economy for a big SUV; the Custom Midnight Edition gets an EPA-estimated 23 MPG on the highway, which will save you money at the pump.
Hauling and towing is a piece of cake for the Chevy Custom Midnight Edition SUV, and is a great option if you find yourself hitching up on the regular. With a maximum towing capacity of 6,600 pounds, the Chevy Midnight Edition can tow pretty much anything you could want or need.
Technology and Safety Features
The Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition is packed full of impressive tech and special features, all of which work together to further its mission to be a true utility vehicle. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are standard, meaning you can access music, maps, contacts, and more from your smartphone on your SUV’s infotainment system. An eight-inch touchscreen display comes standard and includes a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. This feature ensures that you spare your mobile phone data plan and keep the family occupied on those long car rides. Likewise, make sure that all of your devices stay charged with up to five USB ports and five different power outlets, including a 110-volt three-prong outlet. That way, even laptops can be charged inside this Chevy SUV. Along with all of this infotainment technology is remote start, which allows you to rev up the engine with the click of a button.
Along with technology to give you comfort, convenience, and entertainment, the Custom Midnight Edition has a lot of standard and available active safety features and driver assist technologies to keep you and all of your passengers safe. Standard on all Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition SUVs is a rear vision camera, allowing you to back out of driveways or parking spots with ease.
Teen Driver Mode is also standard on this Chevy SUV, making the vehicle perfect for families with new teen drivers in the house. Teen Driver Mode aims to teach teens safe driving habits. The system mutes the radio until all occupants fasten their seatbelts and will automatically turn on any of the active safety systems installed in the vehicle. The system also offers an in-car report card so parents can monitor their teens’ progress and see where the teen drivers need to improve. Other features available with Teen Driver Mode include a custom speed alert, a speed limiter, and an audio volume limiter.
Additionally, other active safety features and driver assist technologies are available on the Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition. With the Enhanced Driver Alert Package, get innovative technologies like Forward Collision Alert, Safety Alert Seat, IntelliBeam headlamps with automatic high-beam control, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking. All of these features work together to keep you and your passengers safe no matter what happens on the road.
The Price is Right
Even though the Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition combines features from two different special edition Chevy SUVs into one, the price of the vehicle is still lower than the base Chevy Tahoe with the third-row seat. This price difference ensures that you get everything you need in terms of performance, features, and design. The Custom Midnight Edition has a starting MSRP of $45,995. This price is only $1,000 more than the Tahoe Custom Edition, still putting the Custom Midnight Edition at $2,515 less than the basic Tahoe LS that the special edition Chevy SUV is based on.
If you are looking for an SUV that gets you impressive performance, spacious storage areas, and innovative infotainment and safety features all at a great price with a stellar look, then the Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight Edition might be the perfect option for you.
