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 Kia Sorento crossover finds a new look but the same mission: it’s the smaller hauler compared to the Telluride.

PROS
Better style
Available hybrid powertrains
Bigger interior
Telluride’s looks

CONS
What’s with the door tooth?
Is the second row more comfortable?
Not appreciably bigger

The all-new Sorento is expected to make its debut at the Geneva auto show in March. Disguised and undisguised spy photos and several official images of the Kia have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the redesigned mid-size crossover. Its boxier proportions and bolder styling mark a stark departure from the curvier and softer appearance of the current Sorento. The Korean automaker has also said that the next-gen model will ride on an all-new platform that helps make it bigger inside and out. It will also feature a hybrid powertrain as well as an eventual plug-in variant.
