The Tahoe is a full-size, body-on-frame boat hauler that rules the SUV world, with loads of tech to keep you safer on the road. Features such as lane-keeping assist and forward-collision warning help you navigate congested roads. In addition, there is 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi and up to seven USB ports and six power outlets, along with standard Android Auto and Apple Car Play. A 355-hp V-8 pairs with a six-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is an option on all models.
What It Is: More than 20 years into its life span, the Chevrolet Tahoe is much the same as it ever was: a massive truck-based SUV that can pack in people and haul and tow lots of stuff. It has become a much more refined beast over the years, though, thanks to newer V-8 engines, continual structural reinforcements, and a barrage of 21st-century tech and luxury features. With the Tahoe and its corporate siblings—the even larger Chevy Suburban, the slightly ritzier GMC Yukon, and the luxurious Cadillac Escalade—General Motors rules the full-size SUV sales charts, with only the Ford Expedition putting up much of a fight. Among the GM trucks, the Tahoe is the least expensive, but that doesn’t mean it’s cheap, starting just under $50,000 and climbing much higher with options.
