The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe: What the critics say

How did the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe fare with the critics? The price starts at $44,600.

Automobile
The new edition of America’s top-selling full-size SUV represents “a very careful evolution of the species.” Its V-8 engine is both more powerful and more fuel-efficient, and its cabin is quieter and considerably more refined. Still, there is little about the 2015 Tahoe that would shock repeat customers. That makes sense. GM’s big SUVs still produce “outsize” profits, and across all family nameplates—including the Tahoe, the Suburban, and the GMC Yukon—they account for 70 percent of segment sales.

Every GMC SUV is “designed to coddle and isolate drivers and passengers from the outside world,” and the 2015s do that better than ever. There’s “real stitching on just about everything you can touch,” and tech extras include a backup camera and up to six USB plugs for in-ride entertainment. The Tahoe’s new shell “does clean things up nicely.” The overall look is “handsome, if a little bland.” Still, GMC has surely given customers what they want.

Popular Mechanics
“GM’s done superb work on handling” this time out, and “there’s plenty of muscle on tap” should you need the Tahoe’s 355-hp engine to do some towing. Most Tahoe buyers don’t ever tow or go off-road. But with the new model, they get “far nicer digs” than they’d ever get in a minivan.
