2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Walk Around


Though completely redesigned for 2015, the Chevrolet Tahoe remains familiar in appearance: upright and indisputably boxy. Yet, the shape has a modern look.

Up front, it resembles a Chevrolet Silverado pickup, though no sheetmetal is shared. Overall, Tahoe is closer to the big, longer-wheelbase Chevrolet Suburban, as well as to the GMC Yukon. Tahoe and Yukon share a 116-inch wheelbase, versus 130 for the Suburban and Yukon XL.

Standing tall, the Tahoe exhibits a commanding aura, flaunting its angular body lines. And it should stand tall: High-strength steel is abundant.

The Tahoe LTZ gets additional bright trim on its grille, fascias, and bodysides, and includes power-retractable side steps.

Interior

The Tahoe interior features smooth curves. Materials have a more premium, upscale feel than those in the Silverado pickup.

High-up seating provides a broad view of the road ahead. Seats are nicely supportive, in a nearly silent cabin. An eight-inch LCD touch-screen radio includes the latest MyLink connectivity features. As many as six USB ports may be installed, along with half a dozen power outlets. A bin in the center console can hold a notebook-style computer or a tablet.

Standard eight-passenger seating includes 60/40 split-folding seats in second and third rows. Choosing second-row captain’s chairs drops capacity to seven, while a front bench seat allows the Tahoe to carry nine.

As expected, the third row is most suitable for youngsters. Cargo-area buttons permit stowing of the seats, to boost cargo volume.

With second- and third-row seats folded down, cargo space approaches 95 cubic feet. With the second-row seats up, that space dips near 51 cubic feet.
