Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 BMW X3 M comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Turbocharged six-cylinder engine produces 473 horsepower or 503 in Competition model.All-wheel-drive system sourced from the BMW M5.Updated suspension components and chassis reinforcement.

Pros
Accelerates faster than many sports cars
Grip and handling are excellent
Still as practical as a standard X3

Cons
Excessively stiff ride, even in the softest setting
Exhaust can drone at highway speeds

BMW's heroic performance SUV lineup now has a compact offering in the form of the X3 M and the X3 M Competition. Honestly, we're surprised it took this long for the masters at the M performance division to swap out the X3's already sporty suspension with even sportier gear and drop in a more powerful engine.

BMW's X3 M Competition promises to blend urban family friendliness with spirited road and track performance. But we threw that out the window and instead went rallying in the Outback.

Pros
Impressive surrogate rally car chops
Great chassis on clay
Proper M-spec running gear
Bloody quick on dirt

Cons
Cleaning out the bulldust afterwards

Not much. Mechanically the Tahoe remains unchanged, as does the interior. New items are limited to the wheels: Chevy offers new 22-inch gloss-black aluminum wheels with custom silver accents and 22-inch machined-aluminum wheels with a bright silver finish.

Pros
Rugged construction, 8600-pound max tow rating, quiet cabin.

Cons
Cramped third row, high load floor, not fuel efficient.

The 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe comes with four wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Minor revisions to optional feature availability.

Pros
Seating for up to nine people
Standard V8 offers impressive towing capability
Interior is well-trimmed and quiet
Optional 6.2-liter V8 adds performance and capability

Cons
Sluggish engine and brake responses
High trunk floor makes loading difficult and reduces cargo space
Maneuvering in tight spaces is a challenge

By:

In its last year before a redesign, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe offers old-school SUV chops with a heaping helping of additional options and features.

Pros
Strong V-8 engines
Easy infotainment system
Plenty of options
Big, luxurious cabin
Massive towing capacity

Cons
Truck-like ride and handling
Subpar efficiency
High cargo floor
Tiny storage behind third row
Crossovers and minivans offer more space
