Many of the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe's competitors offer, for the most part, comparable performance and practicality, so the task of differentiating the 2008 Chevy Tahoe comes down to features. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe shines in this category, as it offers a wealth of both standard and optional features on all three trim levels.
Standard features on the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe vary somewhat across the three trim levels, but ConsumerGuide reports that all Chevrolet Tahoe 2008 models come with "air conditioning w/dual-zone manual controls, rear air conditioning and heater," an "OnStar assistance system," and full power accessories, among others. Edmunds adds that the Chevrolet Tahoe 2008 LS "should please most folks" as it comes with "17-inch alloy wheels" and "an MP3-capable CD player and a trip computer." Those consumers looking for flashier Chevrolet Tahoe trims can opt for the LT, which Edmunds says brings "foglamps, color-keyed exterior trim, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, [and] front bucket seats with a console," while the top-end LTZ "features 20-inch alloy wheels, heated second-row seats, a locking rear differential, [and] power liftgate." Mother Proof reviewers in particular love the power liftgate on the 2008 Chevy Tahoe LTZ since "the gate can be quite heavy to open and close manually."
The 2008 Chevy Tahoe doesn't skimp when it comes to optional features either, which are available in a variety of packages or as stand-alone options. Kelley Blue Book says that some of the "key options" are a "rear-seat entertainment center with DVD player" and "Bose premium nine-speaker sound system." Edmunds states "major stand-alone options for the Chevrolet Tahoe include a navigation system" and a "rearview camera." The navigation system gets strong reviews from both TheCarConnection.com's editors and in other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, with Edmunds reporting "the navigation system is easy to use." In terms of the numerous available packages, ConsumerGuide feels that some of the most desirable are the 3LT Package, which brings "heated 12-way power front seats w/lumbar adjustment" and that "Bose sound system," and the 2LT Package, which includes a "rear-obstacle-detection system, tri-zone automatic climate controls," and "remote engine start."
