SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Four stars Overall; five stars frontal offset; five stars side
NHTSA

Not yet rated.
IIHS




The new 2015 Tahoe should perform as well as or better than the previous generation of Tahoe, as GM has invested substantial effort in improving the rigidity of the passenger structure, as well as equipping more standard and available safety equipment. Forward collision alert, park assistance sensors, lane departure warning, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control are among the standard and available options.

All Tahoes offer the segment's only front-seat center airbag (on bucket-seat models), which offers greater protection for front-seat passengers in side-impact crashes.

While the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't released crash tests for the Tahoe (it tends not to test large body-on-frame SUVs), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the Tahoe top five-star ratings for frontal offset and side impact protection. But it achieves a four-star Overall rating due to its lower three-star rollover rating (mostly a factor, again, of the tall body-on-frame construction).

The feds later separately crash-tested a 2015 Chevy Suburban and found that it earned somewhat lower rating in a couple of key areas—four stars instead of five stars in both the Frontal Crash category and the Side Pole test. That still calculates out to the same four-star overall rating for the two models, but it points to the Tahoe as the pick of the two if safety is the top priority.

Conclusion

The 2015 Tahoe hasn't been crash tested yet, but it offers a segment-first front-row center airbag and a number of other high-tech safety features.

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.
