Thankfully, the current Tahoe raises the disappointingly low bar set by past Chevy SUVs when it comes to interior aesthetics.
Edmunds


The 2013 isn't going to charm you with its exterior design, but it remains very handsome. Inside, it's a little less rosy; the Tahoe's instrument panel and trims (as with those in the rest of GM's full-sizers) now look dated next to Chevy's cars and crossovers and somewhat out of place next to the more macho-styled alternatives from other automakers.

Arguably, the Tahoe's look was conservative from the start. Even so, we still can appreciate the well-sculpted lines of the 2013 Chevy Tahoe. Unlike some of the models in this vehicle class (like the Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia, which can appear to overwrought in places), the Tahoe feels just right for those who don't need to assert themselves. The Tahoe's styling follows a basic two-box SUV design, rounded ever so slightly at the corners, with gently flared fenders. A wide band studded by a bowtie logo splits the large grille, and it's flanked by a pair of very big headlights, squared off into the fenders.

The Tahoe Hybrid wears a number of Hybrid badges and, inside, a different display on the console's LCD screen; but overall the changes are minimal.

The cabin look is simple and straightforward as well, with most models getting a somewhat rounded look that now looks dated next to the more aggressively styled instrument panel of Chevy cars and crossovers. LTZ get much-upgraded materials, and band of trim runs across the dash and gives the cabin a spacious appearance, and large, well-marked gauges are framed by the steering wheel, with a wide center console alongside..

Conclusion

The 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe looks dated compared to other big SUVs--especially inside--but its exterior is still handsome.

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.
