Chevrolet Tahoe

Chevrolet Tahoe 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 LT 4-door SUV 4WD Automatic
The Tahoe has a luxurious and quiet interior, but the ride is too stiff and the third-row seat is tight. In addition, the 5.3-liter V8 and six-speed automatic combine to form a lackluster powertrain that returned 16 mpg overall. The touch-screen infotainment system is easy to use, and the front seats are very comfortable. The Magnetic Ride Control suspension on LTZ trims improves ride comfort, as well as handling response and capability. Properly equipped versions can tow 8,500 pounds. But if towing isn't your main concern, car-based SUVs drive better and are roomier. Lane-keeping assist is now available, joining the already-available blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert systems. Reliability has been well below average.

2015 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Tahoe 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 LTZ
The 2015 redesign brought a sumptuous and quiet interior, power folding second- and third row seats, and optional advanced safety features like forward-collision and lane-departure warnings. Beyond that, it's pretty much your tried-and-true Tahoe, with a 5.3-liter V8 and a six-speed automatic transmission. If your budget permits, the LTZ's Magnetic Ride Control package significantly improves the Tahoe's emergency handling, as well as ride quality. The LTZ also brings blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. If you plan to frequently tow a big trailer, get the Max Trailering Package with its built-in trailer brake controller and 3.42 rear-axle ratio. We found it makes a minimal difference in fuel economy. Changes for 2016 included optional Apple CarPlay capability, a head-up display, and lane-keeping assist.

2007 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Tahoe 2014 Trim Shown: 2014 Base
The 2007 redesign brought a better ride and steering, along with an improved interior. The powertrain remains strong, though unrefined. The third-row seats lack thigh support and don't fold into the floor, eating up cargo room. Handling is cumbersome, stopping distances are long, and fuel economy -- though improved over earlier models -- is poor. However, the highway ride is comfortable and the first two rows of seats are spacious. Curtain airbags are standard, as is a six-speed automatic transmission.

Chevrolet Tahoe 2006 Trim Shown: 2006 Sport Utility
This full-sized SUV offers impressive towing and an absorbent low-speed ride. However, it offers little cargo space behind the raised third row and the ride deteriorates on the highway. Fit and finish are unimpressive and the third-row seat is very tight. Handling is imprecise, steering is vague, and the brakes are so-so. However, on the plus side, 4WD models have a full-time system that can remain engaged indefinitely and electronic stability control (ESC) was made standard for 2002.
