Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Striking an ideal balance between heavy-duty utility vehicle and comfort-minded passenger car, the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe is a great option for active families with lots of toys to tow. With 108.9 cubic feet of cargo room and an 8,400-pound towing capacity, the full-size SUV is perfect for road trips to the lake or mountains, although frequent snow-trekkers may want to opt for the 4-wheel drive version. Our Crystal Red tester came fitted with the optional Sun & Entertainment package, which adds even more passenger-friendly features like a rear-seat entertainment system, power sunroof and an additional nine months of XM satellite radio.
