5.3L V8 & 6.2L V8 Gasoline Engines

  • SAE 0W-20 ACDelco Dexos1 full synthetic oil

3.0L Duramax Turbo Diesel engine

  • SAE 0W-20 DexosD diesel engine oil

You can always consult your Tahoe’s owner manual or contact a service specialist near Temple.

What is the Chevy Tahoe Oil Capacity? 

How many gallons of oil does the Chevy Tahoe hold? Once again, it comes down to the engine option you equip the Tahoe with. Most Chevy Tahoe models have an oil capacity of up to eight quarts. The Chevy Tahoe oil capacity is based on the three engine options:

  • 3.0L I-6 Diesel Turbo: seven quarts with oil filter
  • 5.3L V8: eight quarts with oil filter.
  • 6.2L V8: eight quarts with oil filter
