2017 Chevrolet Tahoe | In-Depth Model Review

Read our most comprehensive review of the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe’s standard features, trim levels, and available options.

The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe arrived long before the current crossover craze, and its continued popularity proves that big is still in. But this beefy SUV is more than a blockish brute.

The Tahoe can tow up to 8600 pounds, and its cabin provides quiet, comfortable refuge. A 355-hp V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission is the sole power train, available with rear- or all-wheel drive. Poor fuel economy and a tight third row are drawbacks, but the Tahoe’s standard infotainment system is superb. While the hefty Chevy costs a pretty penny, its pickup-truck capabilities and undeniable presence solidify its favorable spot on the family-hauler food chain.

Trims and Options We’d Choose

The entry-level Tahoe LS starts at $48,510 and has plenty of pleasing standard features such as remote start, rear parking sensors, tri-zone climate control, and an 8.0-inch MyLink infotainment system with a 4G LTE mobile hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Adding all-wheel drive to any model costs $3000 and boosts the LS’s price to $51,510. We prefer the mid-level LT, which adds premium features including:

• Active safety features (lane-keeping assist, automatic high-beam headlights, and forward-collision alert)
• Heated front bucket seats with memory settings
• Leather-appointed first- and second-row seats
• Power liftgate with programmable opening height
• Bose premium sound system

On top of that, we’d add the Z71 Off-Road package ($1850). This setup lets us tame the trails with rugged all-terrain tires, underbody protection (skid plates), and hill-descent control. It looks cooler, too, with black tubular assist steps and painted 18-inch wheels. The final price of our all-wheel-drive Tahoe LT Z71 is $58,600.
