2017 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. Its Competition

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Chevy Tahoe appeals to all types, including busy families, those who need to tow a boat, and even law enforcement.

Most other full-size SUVs suffer by comparison in some way.

Toyota's Sequoia has drivetrain smoothness in its corner, but it looks far more bulky than GM's utes.

The Nissan Armada has a strong V-8 engine but less space and a higher, less friendly driving position than the Chevy.

The Tahoe's sibling, the GMC Yukon, shares its strengths, but it can be ordered with a 6.2-liter V-8 that the Tahoe doesn't offer.

The updated Ford Expedition may be the Tahoe's toughest rival: Its turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 is strong and fairly efficient, and the Expedition has good handling, thanks to its independent rear suspension.

Quick Specs
6.2
The 2017 Chevy Tahoe delivers almost all the towing and hauling capacity of a full-size truck, and seating for up to nine.
6.8
Old school is in session: The 2017 Ford Expedition teaches a few lessons to today's crossover SUVs with twin-turbo power, luxury-truck touches, and big towing and hauling numbers.
6.5
If you've got a lot to haul, the GMC Yukon range is one of the best ways to do it. But if not, consider a crossover that will use much less fuel and be better to drive.
6.0
After rotting on the vine for years, the 2017 Nissan Armada's redesign brings it upscale and makes it competitive with its recently updated truck-based full-size SUV rivals.
5.2
The 2017 Toyota Sequoia hasn't kept up with the times, even for a body-on-frame SUV. Look closely at the competition.
