2017 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Midnight Edition Models Announced
Chevrolet’s trucks and SUVs have gone black, and they’re not going back.
Chevy first crossed over to the Dark Side last year, when it brought a 2015 Silverado Midnight Edition to the Chicago Auto Show. Since then, the bowtie brand has created a Midnight Edition of the Colorado, a Midnight Edition Trax, and just last month, a 2017 Equinox Midnight Edition.
And today GM announced two more additions to its growing gang of midnight marauders—the 2017 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe Midnight Editions. According to a press release, the new models will go on sale later this year, though no pricing information has been released yet.
The Midnight Edition Suburban and Tahoe are only offered in one color (black), but available in two variants: the Z71 Midnight package and the LT Midnight package.
In addition to all of the features found on the Z71 Package, the Z71 Midnight comes with 18-inch black-painted Z71 wheels, roof rack cross rails, a black grille insert, and black Chevy bowtie logos. Goodyear DuraTrac off-road tires will also be standard on the Z71 Midnight Tahoe.
The LT Midnight upgrades LT Suburban and Tahoe models with 20-inch black wheels, all-season tires, roof rack cross rails, black assist steps, and black bowtie logos. Chevrolet released photos of both the Tahoe Z71 and LT Midnight Editions (above), but no images of the blacked-out Suburban models.
Chevy says its special edition models have been a huge sales success, so it’s no surprise that the company is now launching Midnight Editions of its successful full-size SUVs.
“Our SUV customers have shown a considerable appetite for specialty vehicles,” said Mike Weidman, marketing and advertising manager for the Chevy 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.”
