Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

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

upscale styling,
mighty powertrain and tow rating.

Cons
Not exactly fuel efficient,
obsolete infotainment system,
overly light steering.
