Pros: Decent dollar value for the money; reasonably tractable handling for the size; good front-seat- and dashboard ergonomics, serious towing and hauling capability
Cons: Poor fuel economy; Lags rivals in 3rd-row seat accommodations and cargo flexibility; 2007-vintage design feels a bit dated
CG Says: The Chevrolet Tahoe’s basic design dates back to 2007, and it’s starting to show its age in a number of respects. Though it lags its rivals in 3rd-row seat accommodations and cargo flexibility, Tahoe’s powertrain performance, ergonomics, and overall refinement are still impressive for its class. For those shoppers who truly need the capabilities of a traditional truck-based large SUV, Tahoe remains a fine choice-as is the similar Chevrolet Suburban. Note that an all-new Tahoe is debuting as a 2015 model.
