Car and Driver

Thankfully, the current Tahoe raises the disappointingly low bar set by past Chevy SUVs when it comes to interior aesthetics.

The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe carries over styling that's now several years old, but even if it's not the freshest face among full-size utes it's well-sculpted and not too overwrought.

The Tahoe's grille and nose carry Chevrolet's latest design theme, with twin horizontal grilles split by a big gold bowtie badge and flanked by large, square headlamps. The proportions are nothing surprising—it's the expected two-box styling, quite subtle despite its large dimensions, and without the added chrome and over-the-top rippled sheetmetal of some models. There are subtle flares at the fenders, and the tailgate is simply shaped, with a minimum of cutlines and fuss.

There's not much to distinguish the Tahoe Hybrid model, but it does have several subtle modifications that improve aerodynamics and reduce weight, along with a number of Hybrid badges and, inside, a different display on the console's LCD screen.

The cabin look is rather simple and straightforward as well. A wide band of trim runs across the dash and gives the cabin a spacious appearance, and large, well-marked gauges are framed by the steering wheel, with a wide center console alongside, encasing clearly marked secondary controls.

To be more specific, there are actually two different instrument-panel looks offered in the Tahoe. A more work-oriented interior is fitted to the base Tahoe, but the well-trimmed LTZ's interior could have been lifted from a premium German sedan.


The Chevrolet Tahoe is no longer fresh, but its simple, handsome exterior still manages to look smart.

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.
