A 2-door GMT Tahoe prototype was made but never entered production.

An early example of user-generated marketing , headed by ad agency Campbell Ewald , the campaign began to backfire when hundreds of environmentally conscious parodies flooded YouTube and Chevy's website critiquing the vehicle for its low gas mileage.

The third-row fold-flat feature is accomplished using a raised platform that reduces available cargo space behind the third-row seats. Standard third-row seats and raised "fold-flat" platform significantly reduce available cargo space compared with previous Tahoe models. Multiple USB ports and power outlets are now spread throughout their interiors, including one volt, three-prong outlet, with the Tahoe adding an available eight-inch color touch-screen radio with next-generation MyLink connectivity along with an available rear-seat entertainment system but will not feature a Blu-ray option that is exclusive to the Suburban for , while the Yukon added a standard eight-inch-diagonal color touch screen radio with enhanced IntelliLink and available navigation.

The Texas Edition Tahoe package will be part of a lineup that will also use the Texas Edition package, alongside the Suburban and Silverado.
