Used Car: 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Review Last Updated: 4/16/15

According to auto journalists, the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe impresses with composed road manners, a strong V8 engine and an attractive cabin.

The 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe is ranked:

The 2013 Chevy Tahoe has a V8 engine that test drivers reported has ample power in all situations. They added that the six-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. At an EPA-estimated 15/21 mpg city/highway, the 2013 Tahoe's fuel economy is good for the class. Reviewers were pleased with the Tahoe's comfortable, car-like ride and decent maneuverability for a vehicle of its size. Though some said its steering isn't especially responsive, others said its handling is composed. The 2013 Tahoe can tow up to 8,500 pounds

Most auto journalists reported that the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe's cabin is handsome and well-built, and although a few critics said the plastics are hard, they reported that they have a nice appearance. With the available front-row bench seat, the 2013 Tahoe seats up to nine. Critics complained that the Tahoe's third row is too low for optimal comfort. Many also criticized that the bulky third-row seats must be removed to take advantage of the Tahoe's 108.9 cubic feet of cargo space. The 2013 Tahoe offers comparable overall cargo space to others in the class. Bluetooth and a USB port are standard. Leather seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rear-seat entertainment system, a nine-speaker Bose stereo and a rearview camera are available. According to reviewers, the Tahoe's stereo and climate controls are straightforward, and although the available navigation system absorbs some audio controls, everything remains easy to use.

The 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe was named our 2013 Best Large SUV for the Money when it was new.

Other SUVs to Consider

The 2013 Chevrolet Suburban offers quite a bit more cargo space than the Tahoe, and test drivers were pleased with its strong V8 engine and comfortable road manners. Reviewers found the Suburban's cabin attractive and added that it has ample passenger space in all three rows.

According to auto journalists, the 2013 Toyota Sequoia has strong acceleration in any situation. Reviewers especially liked that the Sequoia's third row simply folds flat into the floor to maximize cargo space, as well as the abundance of storage places for smaller items.
