Let’s say you take a look at a big and cool brand Chevrolet Tahoe RST with the always excellent 6.2L V8 engine. You have fully developed your fantasies of wandering the main street of your city, waving to people enjoying the reflected glow of your exhaust. It is a glossy coating, but one thing is wrong. You are 13 horses and 7 lbs Shy of respect, the waves of these people turn into sarcasm. Imagination ruined.

Or maybe not, because at the North American International Auto Show today, Chevrolet announced A special edition Tahoe RST Performance that will, coincidentally, have 13 more horsepower and 7 lb-ft of torque than the regular RST engine. That means a total of 433 horsepower and 467 pound-feet for those playing at home. You get that power from the free-flowing intake and exhaust systems, so you’ll look better, very.

Now that your fantasy world is back on track from being nearly shattered by the cold, harsh light of reality, you’ll be able to win stoplights with a frontier streak claimed by the manufacturer. 0-60 times of 5.78 seconds (when the manufacturer includes hundredths of a secondYou know, things are serious.) Then you’ll be able to carry on at a horrific top speed of 124 mph – that’s 12 mph better than the not-so-premium RST.

But it’s not just Power Coop that gets an upgrade in the Performance Edition. No, it also borrows some pieces from the Pursuit (read: cop car) Tahoe packagewhich is in Suspension, with new springs, dampers and Swinging bars keep things under control. The ride height drops 0.4 inches forward and 0.8 inches rear, as does the Cop Tahoe, which should help Dealing and making it easier for shorter drivers and passengers (or criminals) to enter.

Braking comes courtesy of some big Brembo red calipers in the front and 25 percent brake rotors Greater than normal RST. This gives uber-Tahoe demands 60-0 stopping distance of 133 feet, less than height of two blue whales (inhabitants of the southern hemisphere, nach)And that’s not terrible.

If you want to live out your dreams of being the worst Tahoe owner in town, you’ll have to pay an extra $8,525 over the normal Tahoe RST cost to get the franchise. Production is scheduled to begin later this year.
