TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevy Suburban is a capable full-size SUV that can carry up to nine passengers in a refined interior and tow up to 8,300 pounds of family entertainment. The 2016 Chevy Tahoe puts a modern face on the traditional truck-type SUV, and still delivers almost all the capability of a full-size pickup. The 2016 Ford Expedition proves there's a place in the world for old-school SUVs, especially those with turbo power, adaptive suspensions, and luxury-truck trim.
