Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe ranked #2 in Large SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Tahoe has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Cushioned, quiet ride
Upscale interior
Numerous safety features
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Small third row
Less cargo room than rivals; a high load cargo floor

By:

Aside from some minor changes to features bundled in certain options packages, the most notable change is the addition of the RST Performance Edition. This package adds a more potent 6.2-liter V8 and a 10-speed automatic transmission, both of which are new to the Tahoe lineup.

Pros
Seating for up to nine people
Impressive towing capacity from the standard V8 engine
Quiet and nicely trimmed cabin

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