Chevrolet Tahoe Interior

Automotive writers are impressed with the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe's updated cabin, which they say is quiet, luxurious and outfitted with top-notch materials. They add that the Tahoe has one of the nicest interiors in the class. Reviewers also like its straightforward controls. The Tahoe doesn't have as much cargo space as some competitors, and reviewers note that its third row is not large enough for adults to be comfortable.

  • "Inside, the Tahoe takes the family hauler to new heights of luxury and creature comforts. The materials used to form the cabin are of the highest quality, with numerous soft-touch surfaces, intricate detailing and clever packaging." -- AutoTrader
  • "This is the best interior treatment we've ever seen in a domestic SUV. We're not exaggerating when we say the 2015 Tahoe LTZ interior is nicer than the one in the previous-generation Cadillac Escalade Platinum." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The overall quality and design of the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe's interior is noticeably improved compared to the previous-generation SUV." -- Edmunds
  • "On both brands the build quality is excellent and the layout thoughtful. The 10-way power adjustable seats are comfortable and everything is right at your fingertips." -- Motor Trend

Seating

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe has seating for eight, cloth upholstery, fold-flat second- and third-row seats and power-adjustable front seats. A front bench seat is available, which boosts seating capacity to nine. Leather seats, heated and cooled front seats and power-folding second- and third-row seats are optional. Reviewers agree that the Tahoe's first and second rows of seats are comfortable and roomy, though they say the third row is too small for most adults, which is a common complaint for the class. Rivals like the Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia offer third rows that reviewers say are adult-friendly. According to automotive writers, the Tahoe's cabin is quiet and well-isolated from road noise.

  • "Front-seat space is improved over that in the previous model. Headroom is up over an inch and a half, so there's now plenty of air, even if you opt for the sunroof." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Tahoe's third-row seat is not as accommodating as some larger SUVs such as the Suburban or Ford Expedition EL." -- AutoTrader
  • "Most shoppers will find the front seats comfortable and reasonably supportive. The lack of a telescoping steering wheel in the LS model will make it harder for some people to get an ideal driving position, however." -- Edmunds
  • "Adults will wish the 2nd-row captain's chairs adjusted forward and back, not just for seatback angle, but that's better than the tiny third row - its poor footroom and legroom make it for kids only." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

Standard features on the 2015 Chevy Tahoe include a rearview camera, remote start, Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD Radio and a six-speaker stereo. Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, lane departure warning, up to six USB ports and a rear-seat entertainment system with a Blu-Ray DVD player are available.

Reviewers agree that the Tahoe's controls are clearly marked, within close reach of the driver and are generally intuitive. Some critics remark that the MyLink system doesn't respond as quickly to inputs as they'd like.

  • "From the driver's seat, audio and climate controls are within easy reach. The former consist of tuning and volume knobs with station selection being controlled through the touch screen. As in most such arrangements, this can make some simple procedures a multi-step affair, but we generally found the system to be fairly easy to use and logical in operation." -- Consumer Guide
  • "MyLink can sometimes be slow to respond to your touch inputs. It's not as bad as some rival systems, but the sluggish performance is still a surprise considering this is an all-new generation." -- Edmunds
  • "In front of the driver sits a cluster with easy-to-read gauges, including a large tachometer on the left, a matching speedometer on the right and a row of four smaller ancillaries in between. A reasonably sized LCD sits below those smaller gauges, offering the driver basic information that includes trip odometers and fuel mileage readouts." -- Autoblog

Cargo

The 2015 Tahoe can hold up to 15.3 cubic feet of cargo behind the third row, 51.6 cubic feet with the third row folded and 94.7 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded, making its cargo hold on the small size for the class. The larger Chevrolet Suburban has more capacity, and even some affordable midsize SUVs like the Buick Enclave offer more cargo room than the Tahoe. Unlike in the previous generation, the Tahoe now has fold-flat second- and third-row seats, and reviewers appreciate that the rear rows no longer have to be removed. Still, some note that the floor of the Tahoe's cargo area is a bit too high.

  • "While much of the Tahoe's competition has embraced fold-flat seats for more than a decade, this is the first time you don't have to remove this big Chevy's third row to maximize cargo room. The power fold mechanism even works quickly." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Overall, cargo capacity is good but not great, as many crossovers offer more space." -- Edmunds
  • "Unfortunately, the Tahoe retains an annoyingly high cargo floor created by the inability of its third-row seats to fold flush into the floor. …" -- AutoTrader
