Everything about the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is new this year. It now rides on an all-new frame derived from the new-for-2014 Chevrolet Silverado. The engines have been upgraded with advanced technology to improve horsepower and fuel economy, and the new interior could be out of luxury sedan.
There are few changes to the Chevy Tahoe for 2014. LS models receive a standard Convenience Package that includes power-adjustable pedals, remote start and rear park assist with rear-vision camera and inside mirror with camera display. Concord Metallic is a new color choice.
The Chevy Tahoe has no major changes for 2013. It just gets a higher-capacity battery and a couple of new exterior colors, and the grade braking function, which uses engine compression to help slow the vehicle when going down hills, now works in the normal transmission mode instead of only in the Tow/Haul setting.
Big space and big capabilities have made the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe America's favorite full-size SUV. Properly equipped, the brawny body-on-frame vehicle, based on a truck-type construction, can seat up to nine passengers, tow 8,500 pounds and manage well off-road. That keeps the Tahoe at the head of its class, which includes the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada. Delivering EPA highway fuel-economy figures in the low 20-mpg range, and including in its lineup (along with its sibling, the GMC Yukon) the only hybrid in the segment, for its size the Chevy Tahoe is about as efficient as can reasonably be expected. But, unless you will actually use the Tahoe's towing capacity and off-road capabilities, a large unit-construction crossover, such as the Ford Explorer, Dodge Durango or Chevy's own Traverse, is a much more efficient, and more sensible, alternative.
