2015 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. Its Competition

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Chevy Tahoe's popular with all kinds of SUV users, from the tow/haul crowd to law enforcement.

Most other full-size SUVs suffer by comparison in some way; the Ford Expedition, for example, has handling that's arguably better than the last Tahoe, but its V-8 has substantially lower output than GM's V-8.

The same's true for the Nissan Armada; it's the oldest vehicle in the class, and its gas mileage ratings bear that out.

Toyota's Sequoia has drivetrain smoothness in its corner, but it looks far more bulky than GM's utes.

The best alternative to the Tahoe could be the short-wheelbase 2015 GMC Yukon, which can be ordered with a 6.2-liter V-8 that's absent so far from the Tahoe's order sheet.

Quick Specs
7.8
The 2015 Chevy Tahoe is the anti-crossover--except where its savvy cabin and infotainment features are concerned--with almost all the capability of a full-size pickup.
8.2
The 2015 Ford Expedition isn't totally new, but the much-needed refresh gives it heady twin-turbo power and a slick-riding adaptive suspension.
7.8
The 2015 GMC Yukon unleashes the power of the straight edge--and of GM's new 420-hp V-8.
7.4
The 2015 Nissan Armada has become one of the oldest vehicles in a segment filled with newer, more efficient, higher-tech alternatives.
7.6
The 2015 Toyota Sequoia has room for the entire family and can tow a boat with ease, but its a challenge to maneuver for daily driving, and it's thirsty, too.
