2020 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe?

The Chevrolet Tahoe is a full-size SUV that’s essentially a shorter version of the Chevrolet Suburban. Three rows of seats are standard, with seating options for as many as nine people. Engine choices include a 5.3-liter or 6.2-liter V-8. Both come with cylinder deactivation to help save fuel when full power isn’t needed. The 5.3-liter V-8 pairs with a six-speed automatic, while the 6.2-liter V-8 gets a 10-speed automatic. Rear- and four-wheel-drive models are offered, and competitors include the Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada, GMC Yukon and Toyota Sequoia.

What’s New on the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe?

There are no significant changes this year. A redesigned Tahoe is expected to be revealed in the coming months.

What Features in the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe Are Most Important?

Not everyone wants an SUV because they’re looking for a mobile status symbol. The full-size Tahoe is a strong candidate for shoppers who need a large SUV for towing or transporting lots of people (or lots of cargo) with minimum fuss. The Tahoe has 51.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, though it dwindles to just 15.3 cubic feet when the third row is up. The Tahoe is also loaded with tech features, like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, up to seven USB ports and six power outlets. In terms of safety features, forward collision warning and low-speed automatic emergency braking are included on LT and Premier trim levels.

2020 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. 2020 Ford Expedition: How Do They Compare?

The Tahoe has many fine attributes, but the Ford Expedition is the newer and more updated SUV of the two. Behind the wheel, the difference is immediately apparent; the Expedition is nimbler and feels less truck-like, even though it’s just as capable as the Tahoe. There’s also more stretch-out room in the Ford’s third row; the Tahoe’s third row is snug for adults. Both SUVs get expensive when you climb the trim levels.

Should I Buy the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe?

The Ford Expedition was redesigned for 2018 and provides stronger competition than before, so it’ll pay to cross-shop at a Ford store before deciding if the Tahoe is the right choice for you. You might also want to check out the Tahoe’s near-twin, the GMC Yukon.

If more space is what you ultimately need — especially when it comes to a roomier third row and bigger cargo area — the longer Suburban might be a better fit. As it stands, the Tahoe is a full-size SUV that’s rugged when you need it to be, and certain trim levels are far more luxurious than you might expect.

3 rows of seats with no leg room.

by Don in Tennessee from Chattanooga, TN on August 26, 2020

The Tahoe is a heavy vehicle, but it is smaller than the Traverse. We had this for 3 weeks and took it on a 1800 mile drive. The leg room in the 2 back rows was limited and made passengers feel ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
