TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2013 Chevrolet Suburban is a traditional large SUV -- handsome and straightforward in design, purpose, and performance. There's very little that's fresh or contemporary about the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe, but they're tough, roomy, straightforward trucks that perform surprisingly well. The 2013 Ford Expedition stands as one of the most accommodating and well-designed of the mega-SUVs, although its styling and features have fallen a bit behind the curve.
