Headroom is up over an inch and a half, so there’s now plenty of air, even if you opt for the sunroof.
Car and Driver
The seats have been redesigned, which is good, but we still found the driving position awkward for lack of a driver’s dead pedal.
But the interior experience of these vehicles can't be fully told without mentioning the remarkable refinement and noise isolation.
Across the board, thicker glass and triple door seals mute wind noise, and redesigned second-row doors are larger, so both kids and adults can clamber aboard more easily.
If that doesn't mean anything to you, consider this: maximum seating capacity sits at nine, and even when fully loaded with people, there's still 15.3 cubic-feet of storage space in back, which is comparable to the trunk size of a midsize sedan.
The 2015 Chevy Tahoe now looks the part of an up-to-$70,000 SUV, but does it deliver on quality and feel? On comfort and convenience? It does.
Improvements to the materials and overall construction come together in the 2015 Tahoe to form a much more car-like, even luxury sedan-like sense in the cabin. Supportive seats, clad in supple (optional) leather make for comfortable seating in both the front and second row (the second row gains two inches of leg room over the previous model), whether heading across town or across country. Likewise, the new cabin is whisper-quiet, further enhancing comfort on the road.
The third row of the Tahoe has been improved for 2015, but it's still a smaller, flatter seating area that's still best reserved for shorter adults or children and teens. Perhaps the most-improved aspect of the second- and third-row seating is the new optional power-operated folding of both rows. Buttons in the rear cargo area allow the seats to be quickly stowed to increase cargo area, and, for the third row, re-deployed into seating position just as quickly. The second-row seats still have to be manually pushed back down into seating position.
Premium look and feel define the 2015 Tahoe's cabin, while cargo features and comfort take a step up.
