TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is the ultimate weekend road-trip vehicle ready to haul nine people, their luggage, and even an 8,300 pound trailer. Try that in a crossover. The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe lineup grows in all the right ways for 2018. The 2018 Ford Expedition is the new benchmark for full-size SUVs.
