Chevrolet Tahoe Review
The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe ranks 1 out of 13 Affordable Large SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Chevrolet Tahoe, as well as reliability and safety data.
Reviewers call the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe one of the best large SUVs on the market, pointing to its gentle ride, strong acceleration, refined cabin and favorable fuel economy.
The Chevrolet Tahoe is completely redesigned for 2015. A V8 engine propels this SUV and earns test drivers' appreciation for its robust acceleration and consistent power delivery. They also like the abundant power available for highway cruising and passing. At an EPA-estimated 16/23 mpg city/highway, the Tahoe has one of the highest fuel economy ratings in the class. According to automotive writers, the Tahoe offers a cushioned ride over road imperfections and decent handling for a large SUV. They are also impressed with its precise steering and easy maneuverability for its size.
The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe's cabin is attractive, with premium materials that give the interior a posh feel, according to auto writers. They think the first- and second-row seats are supportive and spacious, though the third row isn't large enough for most adults. Standard features include a rearview camera, remote start, fold-flat second- and third-row seats, Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD Radio and a six-speaker stereo. Lane departure warning, a rear-seat entertainment system with a Blu-Ray DVD player and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen and up to six USB ports are available. New for 2015, the Chevrolet Tahoe can now be equipped with power-folding second- and third-row seats. Test drivers report that the Tahoe's dashboard gauges are legible and its controls are easy to use, but some critics say that MyLink sometimes operates a bit sluggishly.

- "Put simply, if what you need is a big sport utility vehicle to haul your family, your stuff or some combination thereof, the 2015 Tahoe is easily the leader of the fullsize body-on-frame SUV pack. And, with its newfound comfort and efficiency, we imagine that the beastly SUV-asaurus will manage to evade its grave for several more years, at least." -- Autoblog
