2020 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. Its Competition

2020 Chevrolet Tahoe
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Chevrolet Tahoe has a slim but formidable crop of full-size SUVs to contend with.

The GMC Yukon (and Cadillac Escalade, for that matter) ride on the exact same platform and offer the same engines, but each with its own unique character.

The Yukon offers more luxury than the Chevy with a more reserved style, while the Escalade is the top-of-the-line model.

Ford’s Expedition is a more recently-redesigned contender that offers more cargo space, competitive towing capacity, and strong turbocharged engines.

The Nissan Armada is comparatively huge, but its V-8 is incredibly thirsty and the interior is smaller than the Tahoe.

It’s a similar story with the Toyota Sequoia, which is even less miserly on fuel and hasn’t been redesigned in over a decade.

Top-tier Tahoe shoppers would be smart to cross-shop with luxury crossovers if towing capacity isn’t a priority, as the Volvo XC90 offers seating for 7, great safety features, and loads of luxury for a similar price to the Chevrolet.
