Expert Quotes:

despite the slightly conservative exterior styling, the Tahoe is still handsome
Forbes Autos

modern and uncluttered interior gives the Tahoe a luxurious look.
Car and Driver

largely unchanged for 2009...the Tahoe is still handsome
Kelley Blue Book

When viewing the exterior of the 2009 Chevy Tahoe, 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 says, "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." Car and Driver praises the Chevrolet Tahoe 2009's "handsome exterior and interior design."

The term most frequently used by reviewers to describe the 2009 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 Forbes Autos approves of the Chevrolet Tahoe's "handsome, conservative exterior" as well, calling it "unashamedly big and boxy, though slightly more aerodynamic looking than the previous generation's."

About the cabin Car and Driver says that the "modern and uncluttered interior gives the Tahoe a luxurious look." Consumer Guide 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 Consumer Guide testers and editors at love the available navigation system on the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe, which ConsumerGuide says "has a large, easy-to-read touch screen that absorbs, but does not complicate, audio functions." Kelley Blue Book feels that "the instrument panel with LED backlighting is fit for a luxury sedan," and Edmunds raves about "la handsome, well-tailored cabin.”

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.
