The Tahoe RST isn't one of those namby-pamby special editions that's little more than a new coat of paint.

That said, aesthetic upgrades do play a part.

The grille surround and door handles are now body colored, while the grille, mirror caps, badges and window trim are gloss black.

The Tahoe RST's optional Performance Package adds a 6.2-liter V8, good for 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

It comes mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, the second application of this transmission in any Chevrolet vehicle.

There are other optional upgrades, too, like a Borla exhaust and the red Brembo front brakes you see here.

The Borla exhaust adds 7 to 10 horsepower at the rear wheels.
