TCC’s Bottom Line
For those who need to get work done, but with some style and comfort, practicality still reigns in the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe. Besides being a great tow rig, the 2009 Ford Expedition is big and comfortable; it's one of just a few vehicles in which the third row is usable by adults. The 2009 GMC Yukon Denali still ranks as one of the most stylish and comfortable ways to do serious cross-country hauling.
