2020 Chevrolet Tahoe review: Our expert's take

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.
