2007 Chevrolet Tahoe Interior

This interior review was written when the 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe was new.

Reviewers give the interior of the 2007 Chevy Tahoe high marks, not only for its pleasing design, but also its high level of comfort and functionality. Edmunds reports, "After decades of lackluster GM interiors, the new Tahoe's is astonishing."

The base Tahoe offers seating for eight, but the LT and LTZ models only offer seating for seven. Most reviewers think that seating in the third row isn't adult-friendly and that removing the third row seat is a frustrating process.

Seating

Reviewers found seating in the Tahoe both plentiful and comfortable. Cloth is the only seating surface available in the LS; Leather is an option on the LT and standard on the LTZ. Thanks to a bench seat in the front row of the LS, that model can comfortably hold eight. LT and LTZ models have front bucket seats, reducing their seating capacity to seven.

While the first and second rows of seats earned praise for their roominess and comfort, the third row did not. The Orlando Sentinel reports that the third row of seats is "not that adult-friendly; headroom is fine, legroom is not. If you need to put grown-ups back there often, get a Suburban." Removing the third row to increase cargo space is an annoyance, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. "The rear seats can be muscled out of the car, but they're heavy and awkward." Reviewers found folding the second row of seats to be much easier: they fold with the flick of a switch.

Cargo

The Tahoe's interior is not only expensive-looking and comfortable, it's also practical. U.S. News' Rick Newman says that it's full of "creature comforts like storage nooks for all your food, drink, and electronic amusements."

The Tahoe offers an impressive amount of cargo space. With the second and third rows of seats folded, the Tahoe has 108.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Like all SUVs with a third row, however, that space takes a beating when the third row is in: cargo space falls to a mere 16.9 cubic feet. With the second row upright and the third row removed, the Tahoe has a respectable 60.3 cubic feet of cargo space.

Interior Features

Reviewers are unanimous in their admiration of the Tahoe's interior. Edmunds says, "the dashboard looks like it was lifted out of a 1998 BMW 740iL (a great dash), scaled up 10 percent, and shoved into this truck," while Motor Trend reports, "Cabin materials are significantly improved, with softer surfaces and tighter gaps and tolerances on all panels, the center stack, and gauges. Even the carpet fasteners have been hidden, giving the floor a better-finished, seamless appearance." In fact, the adjective most often used to describe the Tahoe's interior was "stunning." Buyers should be pleased: the interior looks like it belongs in a much more expensive car.

Buyers should be aware that the base LS model doesn't come standard with a lot of the interior features that reviewers loved. A large floor consol isn't available in the LS (because the LS has a bench front seat), and neither are triple-zone temperature controls. Still, the LS does come with extras like multiple power outlets, one year of OnStar, and a remote starter. For truly nice touches like adjustable pedals, heated seats (even in the second row) and a rearview camera, buyers will have to trade up to the LT or LTZ trim levels.
