2010 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. Its Competition

2010 Chevrolet Tahoe
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The standard Chevy Tahoe has some also-ran competition from the likes of the Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia.

Both are a bit larger than the Tahoe and could rightfully be compared with the larger Chevrolet Suburban.

They're also less appealingly styled than the Chevy.

The true competition for the gas-powered Tahoe is the handsome, capable Ford Expedition.

For hybrids, GM pits its Tahoe Hybrid against its own Yukon Hybrid-but you might also shop the diesel-equipped Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTEC, which has fantastic torque and very quiet clean-diesel operation.

Quick Specs
7.8
The 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe isn't your ordinary Jurassic SUV: it's capable, and the Hybrid edition gets better city fuel economy than most German sedans.
7.8
Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.
8.2
The 2008 Ford Expedition is a big, capable SUV with a truly useful and convenient third row.
8.2
The 2008 Toyota Sequoia is a capable example of the full-size SUV--in a day where the full-size SUV makes less and less sense.
