    I hope I am in the right spot to post this topic. I’ve looked and wasn’t able to come up with the discussion, I apologize if it’s already been posted somewhere. Somewhat new here to this.

    Looking at possibly trading in my 17 Tahoe Premier for a 19 RST. Would like to ask the owners a few questions. Had some small issues with my 17 and makes me nervous jumping into a 19.

    How are the 10 speeds holding up?

    How is the suspension? (Drove an RST yesterday and thought night and day difference between my 17 and that 19. Big time improved!)

    Do you have the rough idle in drive?

    Is there anything you like/don’t like?

    I really appreciate everyone’s input!!

    Thank you!!

    I do not have RST but I have XL Denali with 10-speed trans. And after the recall or update was done is even better.
    The suspension is super compared with my previous 15 XL Denali is amazing the job they do in 3 years.
    In 2020 everything will change again get ready will be 3 different engines and 2 different suspensions.

    I suspect a large part of the difference in suspension feel between the Premier and the RST comes from tighter damping and heavier sway bars. These changes could probably be made to an existing Tahoe suspension for under $1500, maybe under $500 for the sway bar alone. If you could do that rather than give up $10K in depreciated value by swapping a car as new as yours, might be worth considering.

    Nothing we can do about the 6.2. I also wish that had been available in Tahoes when I bought mine. The 5.3 isn't bad though.

    I have had my RST for about a month and I love nearly everything about it. The only thing that I don't love is the steering feels unnecessarily heavy, but you get used to it. I haven't had any issue with items you questioned.

    The 6.2 has tons of power. I deleted the muffler entirely (left the cats and resonator) and it ran like a top. My wife didn't like the cabin noise (we have two young children so she was probably right) so I put a muffler back in it.

    we both turn off the lane keep assist as it keeps telling me to put my hands on the wheel even though they are,,,, and she doesnt like that it tugs the wheel in her hand ( what its supposed to do,,,,women,,,, go figure ) but besides not liking the front valance Im happy with everything else so far.

    I accelerated hard from a stop sign to get in front of someone and it spun the rear tires,,,, I wasnt expecting that.

    Thanks all for the replies! Sorry I didn’t get back sooner to read them. Apparently this doesn’t give me notifications.

    I test drove an RST last week Friday and it was pretty much love at first sight. The sound of the 6.2 is impressive and hoping it tows my enclosed trailer better. Very disappointed in the 5.3 that I have in my 2017. The main reason for the upgrade.

    Glad to hear no major transmission problems right away. Assuming the partnership between Ford and GM worked them out!

    There is an option on the build site not available on RST, adaptive cruise control. I use it all the time on mine. Might miss that feature. I have found the website to be incorrect compared to what the dealer shows on their end. I am going tomorrow to build one and potentially order it.

    Keep everyone posted. Keep the good and bad coming! I wanna hear it.

    Very valid point! These guys treat me good and I think they are giving me a deal that I can’t pass up.

    However my 2017 has two bad tires. They are 20’s. I want to purchase 22’. Add that into things, $3,000 roughly a year for value. 6.2 is $2,800. Sadly no pockets in the coffin haha!!

    What was the update for? I was very impressed with the shift quality. I thought. Shit. 10 speeds. That thing won’t know what to do but was very crisp! Even being new with no adaptive learning performed yet.
