The Tahoe's work-truck days are long gone, and today's models come at least as well-equipped as a sedan--on top of its rugged truck hardware.
A Bluetooth hands-free system and a USB port are now included even in the basic Tahoe LS. Satellite radio capability, cruise control, and power windows, locks, and mirrors are also included at the base level, as are rear-seat audio controls, steering-wheel audio controls, and a choice of front bucket seats or a split front bench seat.
For the crowd that continues to get Tahoe models as luxurious family vehicles with strong weekend towing capability, there are the LT and LTZ models. The Tahoe Hybrid gets many of the same features as the LT, and can be equipped with LTZ features as options.
On those upper trims, you can get a load-leveling suspension and a heavy-duty locking differential. Pricey options include a Bose Centerpoint audio system, a nav system with voice recognition, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, tri-zone climate control, remote starting, power-adjustable pedals, and additional power outlets. We'd also recommend the power tailgate here; as much as we laugh at the possibility in some vehicles, this is a genuinely high and hard-to-operate hatch--especially if you only have one arm free.
