2018 Chevrolet Tahoe Walk Around

The Tahoe is a full-size SUV, shorter than the Suburban. Crisp, clean body lines give Tahoe a timeless look. It’s an attractive vehicle.

In profile, it’s a basic two-box vehicle with squared-off lines. Details make the difference between today’s Tahoe and its predecessors. Up front, a chrome-laden grille, flanked by unusual partially split headlights, conveys an expressive appearance. Less detailing is evident at the rear.

The new RST model cuts back on chrome, in favor of black and body-colored trim.


Comfortable and carlike, the Tahoe cabin offers plenty of space for people and cargo, augmented by an appropriately upscale aura. Even the base LS model benefits from soft-touch materials, as well as stitched door panels and dashboard.

Swoopy in appearance, the dashboard is sensibly organized. Most controls are mounted high and are easy to reach and operate.

Front bucket seats offer supreme comfort, even for day-long drives. On special order as a fleet model, a front bench can substitute for the twin buckets.

Second-row seats aren’t quite so comfortable. Outboard riders can expect ample space and good support. The middle position of the 40/60-split bench is tight, but acceptable for short jaunts.

Optional twin captain’s chairs make it easier for passengers to reach the third row, which is more spacious than expected. Agile adults should have no trouble getting there, after using a lever or button to fold down the second row.

Choosing seating configurations is one of the most important decisions when ordering a Tahoe to ensure it best fits your needs. Captain’s chairs offer more comfort, for example, but the center console between them eliminates the large, flat cargo floor and prevents having a solid barrier of seat backs when transporting a dog or cargo. Bench seats, conversely, are more difficult to pass through when moving rearward.

Cargo capacity excels, totaling an impressive 52 cubic feet with second-row seatbacks upright. With all seatbacks raised, cargo volume sinks to 15.3 cubic feet.
