Expert Quotes:

Even with optional 20-inch wheels the ride is supple and quiet
Car and Driver

These big GM trucks float along the highway nicely, and this one is no exception.

it’s a seven-seater only if two passengers are small humans
Motor Trend

It's also able to transport up to nine passengers, so it's at the top of its class when it comes to seating capacity.

The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe and Tahoe Hybrid share quite a bit in common with GM's full-size pickups, like the Chevrolet Silverado, but they don't ride like trucks. The big Tahoe rides smoothly on its coil-spring suspension, but beware that as you move up in wheel and tire size, ride quality suffers (we recommend the 17- or 18-inch wheels over the 20-inchers. The ride is remarkably refined overall, though with its solid rear axle, passengers will know when the rear wheels hit a rough patch

Most Tahoe models come with large, supportive front bucket seats, and in both the first and second rows there's plenty of headroom and legroom. Adding middle passengers in the front two rows isn't the best idea, despite the Tahoe's size and the availability of bench seat in front and in the second row. There's a third-row seat available as well, but it's one of the more difficult of its kind. It's tough to clamber into, since the second-row seats only move forward a little, and legroom in the third row of the Hybrid is slashed by the battery pack, which is mounted under the second-row seats.

For cargo space, the two-row Tahoe is a champion, with 60.3 cubic feet available. Flip up a third-row seat in either version, and the cargo space shrinks to 16.9 cubic feet. There's storage and stowage aplenty, though; all Tahoes have cup holders for all, plus a huge glove box, a wide center console, and lots of door-panel storage.

Interior materials and trims don't quite have the high-end feel and gloss of those used in GM's Cadillac products, but they're among the best, and the Tahoe's interior is well isolated from road and wind noise.

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.
