Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Tahoe is all new and considerably improved. Along with a completely redesigned exterior and interior design, the three-row SUV has been stretched to provide more cargo and passenger space. Its cabin also benefits from the Tahoe's first independent rear suspension, which has already been adopted by direct rivals such as the Ford Expedition and the Nissan Armada. The Chevy receives a host of new technology as well as the addition of a diesel engine option.

The 2021 Audi Q7 fuses a high-class cabin and abundant tech features with a coddling ride, engaging handling, and energetic engines, but it falls short on cargo and third-row space. The Q7 does not have an overall score or ranking because it has not been scored for predicted reliability.

Pros
Powerful engines
Well-balanced ride and handling
Lots of high-tech features
Opulent cabin

Cons
Subpar cargo space
Tight third row

By: 
usnews.com

The 2021 Audi Q7 three-row SUV features more standard safety and convenience features, an excellent infotainment system, and a soft, luxurious ride.

Pros
Sophisticated interior
More standard safety tech
Improved touchscreens
Standard virtual cockpit
SQ7 performance model

Cons
New engine is less efficient
V-6 is about $6,000 more, depending on trim
Third row for children only
Third-row access should be easier
