The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
For those who have to haul people and tow, the 2011 Ford Expedition provides truck toughness in a well-rounded wagon. The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe is very comfortable, capable vehicle, built on tough, traditional building blocks; and especially in the sophisticated Tahoe Hybrid, it's no dinosaur.
