Expert Quotes:

IIHS

Four stars overall, five stars frontal, five stars side
NHTSA




The 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe definitely builds an impression of heft and safety from appearance alone. Big SUVs haven't always provided top-notch protection that they hint, but in the case of the Chevrolet Tahoe, that first impression isn't at all off the mark. The Tahoe has earned solid crash-test scores and has a respectable set of safety features--some of which might help avoid an accident.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't yet tested the Tahoe, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has tested it under its new, tougher rating system. In that, the Tahoe earned five-star ratings for both frontal and side impact. While they haven't yet extended those ratings to the 2013 model year at the time of posting, we expect them to cover the essentially carry-over model. 

Dual front, side, and curtain airbags that cover all rows of seats; traction and stability control; and OnStar security and concierge services are all included across the Tahoe lineup.

With the Tahoe's rather tall stance and wide rear pillars, outward visibility can be a problem and require some double checks for parking and lane changes. For that, the available rearview camera system would be welcome; parking sensors and a blind-spot warning system are also available.

Conclusion

Excellent crash-test scores affirm the occupant protection of the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe.

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.
