Four stars overall, five stars frontal, five stars side
NHTSA




With such mammoth dimensions and a stout build, people are prone to think that the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe is a very safe pick. In this case, they're right.

The Tahoe hasn't been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but in the federal government's new, more stringent crash tests for 2011, the Tahoe gets top five star scores in both frontal and side impact—with an overall score of four only because it's such a tall vehicle and thus more rollover-prone. The Tahoe also achieves a top five-star score in the new NHTSA side pole test, which isn't yet figured into the overall score.

Standard safety features include dual front, side, and curtain airbags that cover all rows of seats; traction and stability control; OnStar; and tire pressure monitors.

Outward visibility can be an issue in the Tahoe; with its very tall stance and wide pillars, parking and lane changes require some double checks—though wide side mirrors help with those lane changes. A rearview camera is an option, as are rear parking sensors and a blind-spot warning system.

Conclusion

The 2011 Chevy Tahoe has an excellent reputation for safety and occupant protection—including crash-test results to confirm it.

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.
