General Motors is battling for supremacy across America with Toyota instead of FoMoCo and Stellantis. And we have to say that based on the Japanese automaker's tidal wave of introductions, the odds are not in GM's favor.
The rivaling Asian company just dropped a couple of 2025 model year novelties at the 2023 Los Angeles Auto Show – the 2025 Camry mid-size sedan and the 2025 Crown Signia, a new five-seat flagship crossover SUV. Naturally, GM needs to respond in kind to maintain supremacy – and what better way to deal a blow than to use a couple of heavyweights?

As such, no one should be surprised by the timely apparition of the 2025 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, the truck-based SUVs at the top of the brand's crossover and SUV food chain. In fact, their reveal is only logical. Aside from the Bolt EVs, which are due for a completely new generation with Ultium technology soon, all other Chevy CUVs and SUVs were either brand-new or thoroughly updated – the Trax, Trailblazer, Equinox & Equinox EV, Blazer & Blazer EV, and the all-new Traverse.

Now, the mainstream Chevrolet brand is coming full circle with its CUVs and SUVs by bringing out the refreshed 2025 Tahoe and Suburban. However, there's a simple question – are you wrong to buy the current 2023 Tahoe and Suburban if you don't want to wait for the 2025MY to drop sometime before the end of next year? Well, if you're intent on dropping at least $54,200 or $57,200 on a Tahoe or Suburban, respectively, not really.

One thing to consider when pondering the purchase is the tendency for inflation to bite hard into new model year MSRPs – we have seen so few automakers drop prices or keep them level that these exceptions have become like a lost treasure hunt these days. However, remember that Chevy's "full-size SUVs bring improvements on design, engineering, and technology" across the board if you decide to wait.

The exteriors and interiors are freshly revamped, there's new signature LED lighting with the company's signature two-tier design, and the cockpit now boasts a larger, now "best-in-class" 17.1-inch infotainment display. If the layout looks familiar, yes, it's because Chevy was clearly inspired by the Cadillac Escalade sibling when it revamped the Tahoe and Suburban cousins. Additionally, the second-generation 3.0-liter turbodiesel Duramax engine that debuted earlier on the Silverado is also offered with 10% more power than the current one.

More precisely, the current mill has 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, while the updated one boasts 305 hp and 495 lb-ft. It is paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission and can be had on all trims, including the off-road-focused Z71, for the very first time. As such, if money is no concern, I would advise waiting a little for the 2025 Tahoe or Suburban – they even feature available SuperCruise after the initial launch.
