2018 Chevrolet Tahoe

Disclosure: Chevrolet let me test drive a Tahoe for a week!

If style, luxury and interior space are on your must have list for a vehicle- then the Chevy Tahoe may just be the SUV for you!10685082_10204110277431436_514887502_nThe interior has been completely redesigned. Inspired by the craftsmanship of high-end wristwatches, the appearance of the instrument cluster is intricate and refined.  Premium materials contribute to the functional, sophisticated design. Storage in the center console is large enough to fit a laptop computer, diaper bag or large purse.. Plus, the 8-inch color touch-screen slides up to reveal space behind the display to store cell phones, wallets or anything you want hidden.

10706490_10204110275711393_1506099271_nThe Tahoe allows you to stay connected. It features 12 charging locations, including six USB ports to charge phones and a 110-volt three-prong plug to charge your laptop or straighten your hair while in the car pool line!

I was easily able to install four car seats (two Britax Frontier 90‘s in the back, a Britax B-Safe and a Combi Coccoro in the front) in the Tahoe, with room for a fifth in the back seat. All spots feature a top tether as well, which is hard to find. With two rear facing car seats in the second row, there was still plenty of room for my kiddos to crawl under and get to the third row. I really loved knowing even if we were in a car accident, all the kids were safe and secure!10695410_10204109635575390_254345508_nThe Tahoe I tested had heated and cooled perforated leather-appointed front seats that were super easy to adjust perfectly for short me and my tall husband. The power-release second-row seats made getting kids into and out of rear car seats easier than ever and the fold-flat third-row seats gave us a whopping 94.7 cu. ft. of cargo space!

10699222_10204116729632737_1187444695_nWith all the seats up I was able to fit a single stroller in the trunk, with a small amount of room left over for groceries or a diaper bag.
10707917_10204110277991450_1742487935_nThe Tahoe is also packed with safety features that make driving the super long SUV way easier. Front Park Assist helps when maneuvering into tight parking situations. The Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert use radar sensors in the rear quarter panels to detect fast approaching vehicles from up to 230 feet away in the adjacent lane or blind zone and warn drivers of their presence. Cameras and radar sensors surround the vehicle and operate together to help ensure drivers are aware of the road — and their surroundings.

10708376_10204110275951399_19788302_nThe Tahoe starts with the world-class EcoTec3 5.3L V8, an all-new engine designed to generate more power and offer better fuel economy than any large SUV of any competitor in the industry – an EPA-estimated 23 MPG highway without sacrificing performance.  I did lots and lots and lots of city driving (from Lancaster to DC) and got an average of 20 MPG with the Tahoe packed with stuff! The strong, efficient EcoTec3 V8 generates 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, giving you the confidence to handle just about any driving situation.

  1. Love this SUV! Def. on the list for a next purchase.

  2. Wow the Tahoe looks awesome. How did it handle on corners?

  3. How/where did you tether the rear facing Britax B-Safe? Thanks!

  4. how is leg room in the backseat (third row) for children?

    I hate the price tag for the normal average family for the Tahoe’s. Getting a 2009/2010 will get you the same features for 1/2 the price. I can’t spend another house payment on a car even with both of us working. Glad it’s working for you though.
