Used Car: 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe Review
The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe impressed reviewers with its composed ride and powerful engine.
With its standard V8 engine, reviewers said the 2014 Chevy Tahoe has ample power in all situations. They added that the standard six-speed automatic transmission delivers seamless shifts. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 15/21 mpg city/highway with either rear- or four-wheel drive, which is at the upper end of a tightly bunched class. Reviewers remarked that although the 2014 Tahoe is large, it is easy to maneuver. They noted that it rides comfortably and feels composed through turns, with minimal body lean.
While most critics were pleased with the 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe's attractive cabin design, a few remarked when it was new that it looks outdated and there are too many low-rent plastics. Lots of reviewers disliked that in order to maximize cargo space, you have to manually remove the third row of seats, rather than simply folding it into the floor as in some rivals. The front seats are supportive, according to most reviewers, but a few mention that the absence of a telescopic steering wheel can make it tricky to find an ideal driving position. Standard features in the 2014 Tahoe include a USB port, Bluetooth, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors. Available features include a 10-speaker Bose audio system, a rear-seat entertainment system, leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, navigation and tri-zone automatic climate control. The navigation, audio and climate controls were praised by test drivers for their straightforward operation.
When it was new, the 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe was named our 2014 Best Large SUV for the Money and our 2014 Best Large SUV for Families.

Other SUVs to Consider
The 2014 GMC Yukon is very similar to the Tahoe. It gets the same fuel economy and auto journalists praised the Yukon’s comfortable ride. The long-wheelbase Yukon XL has among the most overall cargo space in the class, and the luxury-oriented Yukon Denali has more standard features than the Tahoe.
The 2014 Ford Expedition has an adult-friendly third row, and reviewers said they appreciated that it easily folds flat when you want to access additional cargo space. The Expedition has a comfortable ride, and some appreciated that it feels smaller from behind the wheel than it actually is.
