This big SUV, which is built on a full-sized pickup chassis, seems like a throwback in a world where nearly every other SUV is now based on a carlike unibody structure. It's a virtual twin of the GMC Yukon and essentially a shorter version of the Chevrolet Suburban, with a 20-inch shorter length and about 24 cubic feet less cargo room.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Henry H., GA (2017 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Fantastic ride plenty of room"

James S., VA (2017 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Chevy has made the front seats more narrow in recent years so they could make the center console wider. This was a DUMB idea. The old console had plenty of storage space and the wider seats were much more comfortable on long trips."

Paul O., AZ (2017 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"It’s like riding in your living room."

Anonymous, NJ (2017 Chevrolet Tahoe)

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Purchase through Internet Great deal"

James S., VA (2017 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Still a new vehicle, but last year's model, I purchased in July of 2018. I got a LOT off the MSRP since it'd been on the dealer's lot for a long time. The battery was actually dead on the vehicle when we went to test drive it, so you can imagine the leverage I had when negotiating a price for this. The dealer also had several 2018 Tahoe's on the lot that it was competing against, so you get the picture."

Michael W., MN (2017 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"I bought the Tahoe after my Trailblazer 'gave out' and I couldn't replace it. I purchased the Tahoe hoping to get a substitute for the Trailblazer but it hasn't worked out that way.....I pd. too much for 'frills', 'gadgets' and 'size' I don't use or want. I would definitely have looked at other 'Trailblazer substitutes' but my small town has only Jeep and GM dealers and the vehicles they produce don't meet my needs either. On a long angle left, using both the rear view and outside right mirror, there is a blind spot when having to cross the left lane to get into the right lane....the posts between the back seat and rear seat windows is too wide. That and the fact it vehicle has a definite hesitation when accelerating from a stop are my 2 biggest problems with the car. Folding the 2nd row seats down is also a 'pain', since it's quite difficult to get them to fold all the way up to the front seat after they go flat. Seats are comfortable. 3rd row seat is made for 'midget legs' since it sits so low to the floor. The car has the clearance I need for 'woods' driving and dealing with the snow we get in the winter."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
