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.

What Owners Say

"It has an unusual accelerator. Not the easiest to use especially when engine is cold. Kind of halting not smooth. Does better when engine is to temperature."

Andrew S., VA (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Beautiful well built machine that drives and handheld beautiful."

Brandon B., TX (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"The Tahoe has significant pulling and passing power and the 22 inch wheels enhance the handling with a smooth and comfortable quiet ride. My 2018 4x4, V8 gets over 20 mpg average and had almost 22 mpg on the road fully loaded."

Stephen H., NC (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Outstanding power from the 6.2 liter 10 speed drivetrain combination. Handling is competent for a large suv. Well executed package."

Roger B., TX (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Accelerates and handles like a sports car. Very smooth through the gears when accelerating."

What Owners Say

"We have recently returned home from a week at the beach with children and grandchildren. There were times when we used 1st, 2nd and 3rd row seating. We were all comfortable throughout the car. When it was time to go shoppjng the 3rd row seating stowed easily and allowed an abundance of room behind the 2nd row seating. At the end of our beach trip, we had a four hour trip home in comfort and quiet with a spacious area for occupants. The grands rode with parents on the way home and that enhanced the quiet!"

Stephen H., NC (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Super comfortable"

"Only vehicle in this class that had full range of adjustments for both front seats (driver and passenger). I am 6 feet tall and my wife is 5 feet. The foot pedal adjustment were also a huge factor for my wife."

Jack B., NV (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"All around a perfect vehicle"

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

What Owners Say

"drives well, comfortable to travel needs more headroom for my hat cost plenty of $ to buy"

T W., WY (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Expensive vehicle, but well with it based on experience to date and expected reliability in the future."

Roger B., TX (2018 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"My 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe has the optional Performance Front Brake Upgrade System. I received the following recall: GM Program # N182155600, Customer Satisfaction Program #18119 - Spare Tire Does Not Fit Over Performance Front Brake Kit. The vehicle has a 17 inch spare tire which will not fit over the front brakes when equipped with the performance brake kit. The solution proposed by Chevrolet for a flat front tire is a dual tire change (replace a rear tire with the spare and move the rear tire to the front). The Chevrolet dealer is to print and install an insert to the owner’s manual describing this dual tire change. This solution compromises safety, especially if the dual tire change has to occur on the side of a busy highway. It does not meet my expectations for a premium SUV. Chevrolet should provide a spare tire (free of charge) that will fit over the performance front brake kit. An appropriate spare tire should have been included with the front brake upgrade option. I called the Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center regarding this issue. Their representative was rude and no help at all. His only reply was that I needed to take this matter up with my Chevrolet dealer. So I did that and the dealer checked with their chain-of-command within Chevrolet. Their zone representative stated that there was nothing else they could do other than provide the owner’s manual insert. My complaint is not with the dealer. I do not expect them to provide an appropriate spare tire at their cost. A new rim and tire for this vehicle (that will fit over the performance front brake kit) is very expensive. My complaint is against GM and Chevrolet Corporate regarding their unacceptable response to this problem."

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.
