The Chevrolet Tahoe is one of the last large, truck-based SUVs on the market, offering a huge interior with seating for between seven and nine people, an impressive towing capacity, and defiantly low fuel economy ratings. We expect none of this to change for the 2023 model year, as the Tahoe will likely be returning as a carryover model.
Chevrolet has tried to make the Tahoe a bit more aerodynamic to eke out a few extra MPGs, but at the end of the day, it’s still a brick with wheels. However, that allows it to have a cavernous interior with up to 122.9 cubic feet of space, a figure only seriously outclassed by the larger (but closely related) Chevrolet Suburban. The Tahoe is perfect for hauling larger families on road-trip vacations, with three rows of comfortable seating, plenty of cargo room to spare, and neat features like an optional rear entertainment system.
The Tahoe is offered with three engine choices. Most get a 5.3-liter V8 with 355 horsepower, while a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 hp is available on higher trim levels as an option. There’s also a 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline six-cylinder that offers the best fuel economy of the three at 24 mpg combined, which is a 7 mpg increase over the base 5.3-liter. All-wheel drive is standard on the top Premier and High Country trim levels and an option on all other models, while a 10-speed automatic transmission equips all models.
The Tahoe comes standard with lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, rear parking sensors, and front automatic emergency braking. Other features like adaptive cruise control, reverse automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring, and a surround-view camera become available as you climb through the trims or select options.
