because it does not fold flat, the third row would best be removed from the vehicle before a Costco run

Car and Driver


The Chevrolet Tahoe has long ago abandoned its basic truck roots; even the base Tahoe LS comes equipped like an entry-luxury model, and while the serious towing ability is there many Tahoes are used first and foremost as tough and secure yet comfortable transportation.

For those types, equipment in the base Tahoe LS has gotten even better for 2011. Bluetooth connectivity is now standard, as are rear audio controls with two headphone jacks, and floor console storage luggage rack rails, and premium front bucket seats are now also standard. A 40/20/40-split front bench remains optional. Other standard features carried over include an AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 player with USB input; cruise control; power windows, locks, and mirrors; a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wheel-mounted audio controls; and express-down windows.

LT and LTZ models add more features, with the top-of-the-line LTZ getting serious load-bearing upgrades like a heavy-duty locking differential, Autoride load-leveling suspension, and 20-inch wheels, in addition to an upgraded Bose Centerpoint audio system, a nav system with voice recognition, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, tri-zone climate control, remote starting, power-adjustable pedals, and additional power outlets.

The Tahoe Hybrid gets many of the same features as the LT, and can be equipped with LTZ features as options.

This is one vehicle in which you might actually want to spring for the power liftgate; the standard hatch is quite heavy to operate with one arm.

Conclusion

Don't think of the 2011 Tahoe as a work truck; Tahoe LTZ and Hybrid models, with their $50k+ price tags and long feature lists, qualify as full-fledged luxury vehicles.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
