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

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

Cons

The XC90 receives a visual freshening for 2020 by way of a new grille and front bumper; Volvo also has restyled the XC90's wheels. Base Momentum models now come with low-profile roof rails and integrated tailpipes while sporty R-Design models swap matte silver exterior trim for gloss black. All XC90 models now come standard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, R-Design and Inscription trims gain front parking sensors as standard, and Volvo has tweaked the operation of both the rear cross-traffic alert feature and added active-steering support for the City Safety driver-assistance feature.

Pros
Sleek exterior, chic cabin, a plethora of standard driver-assistance features.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds, flinty ride, laggy infotainment response upon startup.
