2009 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. Its Competition

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia are both a bit larger than the Chevrolet Tahoe and could also be compared against the larger Chevrolet Suburban.

Don't write off the Tahoe because of quality concerns, this truck is designed and built to run among the best of the best.

A properly equipped 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe can tow four tons, besting the Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada in this important category.

Compared to the Ford Expedition the big Chevy offers a wider choice of engines and TheCarConnection.com's editors appreciate its comparatively more responsive handling and great ride quality in the top LTZ models.

Quick Specs
For those who need to get work done, but with some style and comfort, practicality still reigns in the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe.
Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.
The 2008 Ford Expedition is a big, capable SUV with a truly useful and convenient third row.
The 2008 Toyota Sequoia is a capable example of the full-size SUV--in a day where the full-size SUV makes less and less sense.
