On Styling

The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe enters Chevy showrooms in a form that is virtually identical to its 2007 incarnation. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com indicate that this isn't such a bad thing, since Car and Driver praises the Chevrolet Tahoe 2008's "handsome exterior and interior design."

The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe is a large SUV from Chevrolet that is available in three trims, which Cars.com lists as "base LS, LT, and top-of-the-line LTZ trim levels." The term most frequently used by reviewers to describe the 2008 Chevy Tahoe is "handsome," and the Tahoe Chevrolet is indeed deserving of the moniker. Kelley Blue Book reviewers report that "despite the slightly conservative exterior styling, the Tahoe is still handsome," and ForbesAutos approves of the Chevrolet Tahoe 2008's "handsome, conservative exterior" as well, calling it "unashamedly big and boxy, though slightly more aerodynamic looking than the previous generation's." When viewing the exterior of the 2008 Chevy Tahoe, Cars.com reviewers first notice the "large clear-lens headlights [that] flank a wide grille bisected by a thick horizontal member with a large Chevy bowtie logo." Kelley Blue Book agrees "the face of the Chevrolet Tahoe is its most distinctive exterior feature," but also mentions that "the steeply-angled windshield, wraparound fascia and faired-in headlights help contribute to a best-in-segment 0.363 coefficient of drag." For 2008, Cars.com states that Chevrolet has added "two paint colors, a blue and a ruby metallic," to the exterior color options of the Tahoe Chevrolet.

The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe matches a conservative, but attractive, exterior with a world-class interior design.

Inside, the 2008 Chevy Tahoe has "definitely moved up a notch or two when it comes to interior refinement and luxury," according to Kelley Blue Book. Other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com agree, with Edmunds raving about "last year's redesign that introduced a handsome, well-tailored cabin," among other improvements. Car and Driver also approves, proclaiming the "modern and uncluttered interior gives the Tahoe a luxurious look." ConsumerGuide notes "the gauges are generally easy to read, but some testers find the markings too indistinct for best legibility," though they also mention "most controls are logically placed and operate with precision." Both ConsumerGuide testers and editors at TheCarConnection.com love the available navigation system on the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe, which ConsumerGuide says "has a large, easy-to-read touch screen that absorbs, but does not complicate, audio functions." One final bit of praise comes from Kelley Blue Book, which feels that "the instrument panel with LED backlighting is fit for a luxury sedan."
