2014 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. Its Competition

2014 Chevrolet Tahoe
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Chevy Tahoe's a perennial choice for shoppers that need one vehicle to serve people, cargo, and trailers.

It has some competition, though few are as long-lived or as well-known--except its long-wheelbase companion, the Chevy Suburban.

The Ford Expedition remains the Tahoe's top rival; the Ford's engine has power and torque numbers that are close to those of the Chevy, yet it doesn't feel as quick.

The Expedition does ride a bit better, and its handling is impressive, especially when comparing base models.

The Expedition is also due to get an engine upgrade to the new 5.0-liter, which will put it on more of a level playing ground.

Both the Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia amp up the macho design cues inside and out.

The Armada performs quite well, but it's one of the thirstiest vehicles in this class and doesn't feel very refined.

Meanwhile, the Sequoia doesn't handle or ride as well, and its interior can feel a little too plasticky.

The Dodge Durango is also a rival, although with underpinnings shared with the Jeep Grand Cherokee and a stretched body, it's a different sort of beast, aimed at personal use and with more than a hint that it's taking on the luxury brands.

Quick Specs
The rugged, honest Chevy Tahoe doesn't exactly lack for luxury, but it's a more pragmatic choice for those who don't really need the luxury layers applied to Yukons, Escalades, or GLs.
Plain but purposeful, the 2014 Chevy Suburban puts full-size SUV tradition to the foreground.
The 2014 Dodge Durango is a great family hauler, and a top-notch utility infielder when you need extra brawn—made better this year with some important upgrades.
It hasn't been brought up to date like the company's pickup trucks, but the Ford Expedition has one of the best cabins and designs among the biggest SUVs.
The 2014 Nissan Armada has grown old in a segment that has improved its technology, safety, features and fuel economy.
The 2014 Toyota Sequoia has room for eight and strong V-8 towing capacity, but it's pretty thirsty and difficult to maneuver to drive every day.
