What You Will Like

The Suburban and Tahoe are by far the best-selling models in their class, and they're tough rivals for the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada, among just a few others. These two Chevy models are closely related in most ways--although there's a key difference: The Suburban is 14 inches longer in wheelbase and 20 inches longer overall than the Tahoe; and that results in a significantly larger third-row seat than in the Tahoe--as well as easier access to it, and more cargo space.

Compared to rival models, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban still stand out for their good ride quality and efficient engines, and they handle surprisingly well considering their size and mass. They're also very rugged and versatile, and can be outfitted for off-road toughness, tow ability, and interior luxury as needed.

Chevrolet claims that the Suburban will be the most fuel-efficient model in the full-size SUV class, thanks to its standout combination of fuel-saving technologies like direct injection and active fuel management (cylinder deactivation). Although the profile of the Suburban and Tahoe haven't changed all that much, Chevy has managed to make significant improvements to aerodynamics. Yet chiseled sheetmetal and big, flamboyant wheels (up to 22 inches) help maintain a powerful look.

What's New For 2015

Chevrolet's full-size Suburban and Tahoe SUVs, have been completely redesigned for 2015. While these models are essentially the same size on the outside as those that they replace, GM has re-engineered these trucks for much-improved refinement and ride quality--as well as more power and higher towing capability.

Both model lines get new Chevrolet MyLink touch-screen connectivity in most of their trim levels. Meanwhile, second- and third-row seating has been revamped to include the convenience of a fold-flat arrangement, for added cargo versatility. Additionally, Suburban models get a little more legroom for those in the second row, while a new dual-screen rear entertainment system with Blu-ray DVD player is offered in the Suburban. Otherwise keyless entry and push-button start are both new and widely available in both the Suburban and Tahoe lineups, as are other new convenience features, like adaptive cruise control.

Introduction

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is new inside and out, with more power, more fuel efficiency and more refinement than before. All told, the 2015 Tahoe’s makeover is thoughtfully planned and nicely executed.

While chassis dimensions don’t change, there are updates to the foundation. A stronger body structure uses more high-strength steel and the rear track has been expanded slightly, contributing to a smoother ride and quieter cabin.

Third-generation magnetic ride control automatically adjusts shock absorbers to road surfaces and driving demands in milliseconds, affording a blend of comfort and control we find remarkable in a vehicle this size. It’s limited to the top of the line LTZ trim level, but trim levels with conventional spring and damping systems have been retuned and deliver better dynamics than the previous generation.

The sheetmetal has been reshaped from stem to stern, and while it takes an experienced eye to distinguish the 2015 Tahoe from the previous generation, the styling is crisp, with sharp angles and a strong character line running from front to rear just below the greenhouse. The front doors are unique to the Tahoe, no more sharing with the Silverado, and the B-pillar has been moved forward, enlarging the rear door opening for easier ingress.

The 2015 Tahoe’s interior is all new, with two welcome new options: a power liftgate and power-folding rear seatbacks. For 2015, GM made a substantial investment in noise suppression, with triple seals around the doors, acoustical laminate windows, and lots of sound-insulation throughout. The payoff is a big ute with luxo sedan interior noises levels.

Like the Suburban, the 2015 Tahoe is limited to a single engine, a 5.3-liter V8, paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. That displacement is familiar, but this is a much different 5.3-liter V8: all aluminum, new block, new cylinder heads, new crankshaft, new pistons, higher compression ratio, direct fuel injection. More power: 355 horsepower versus 320 hp in the previous version, 383 pound-feet of torque. That torque provides the pulling power to achieve a towing capacity of 8400 pounds with four-wheel drive, 8600 pounds with 2WD.

And there’s improved fuel efficiency to go with the increased thrust: 16/22 mpg City/Highway with 4WD, 16/23 mpg with rear-wheel drive.

Tahoe shares the Suburban’s solid body-on-frame construction, and while it weighs a couple hundred pounds less than the big guy, at 5683 pounds with four-wheel drive it’s no wraith. Curb weights on the 2015 models are up by as much as 100 pounds, depending on equipment, and while the Suburban takes up even more room, a vehicle that’s 204 inches long and 74.4 inches high still casts a lot of shade in a parking lot.

The Tahoe is 14.4 inches shorter than the Suburban, on a 116-inch wheelbase, versus the Suburban’s 130-inch wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear wheels).

We found the 2015 Tahoe behaves very well on the road. Don’t expect car-like driveability; it’s a non-sequitur with vehicles in this size class. But the responses are prompt, an active safety plus for a vehicle that’s likely to be loaded with kids. And it’s a smooth operator in terms of ride quality.

Lineup

All 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe models come with 5.3-liter V8 engine, 6-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive (2WD) is standard, four-wheel drive (4WD) is optional ($3000). (All prices are MSRP, which can change at any time without notice, and do not include $995 destination charge.)

Tahoe LS ($44,600) comes with tri-zone climate control, cloth upholstery, seating for nine, fold-flat second- and third-row seats, AM/FM/CD audio, satellite radio, remote vehicle starting, rear view camera, rear park assist. 4WD is optional ($47,600).

Tahoe LT ($50,000) adds leather trim to first and second row seats, heated power front seats with memory feature, Bose premium audio, Chevy MyLink infotainment system, power liftgate with programmable height, lane departure warning, forward collision alert.

Tahoe LTZ ($59,000) adds heated and cooled front seats, fog lamps, HID headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, heated power side mirrors, power tilt/telescope steering column with memory, heated leather steering wheel, keyless entry, pushbutton start, power folding second- and third-row seatbacks, power adjustable pedals, 110-volt power outlet, 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels, blind spot warning, lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert.

Safety features include front center airbag.

Walkaround

The basic shape of the Chevy Tahoe is familiar, but the skin is all new for 2015, with attention to aerodynamics as well as aesthetics.

Current Tahoe owners will recognize the subtle distinctions between the new fascia and its predecessor, especially around the grille and headlights. That sharp stem-to-stern crease just below the windows, shared with the Suburban and GMC Yukon, lends interest to a profile that was previously slab-sided. GM has moved the B-pillar forward slightly, expanding the rear door opening, making it easier to climb in and out of the back seat, as well as the third row.

The side mirrors now have turn signal repeaters, and there’s a power option for the rear liftgate. Chevy also points out that while there is chassis commonality, neither the Suburban nor the Tahoe share any sheetmetal with the Silverado pickup. Wheel options include 18-, 20-, and 22-inch choices.

Power running boards are a nice feature, retracting when not in use, deploying whenever a door is opened. However, when opening and closing doors a lot, for example, when loading and unloading cargo or cleaning, the constant retracting and deploying over and over can be annoying. Also, they can whack a shin when deploying. That said, the running boards make getting in the Tahoe far easier than getting into a full-size SUV or pickup without running boards.

The power liftgate works well, and the rear window can be opened separately, which is a nice feature. Finding the button to close the liftgate can be difficult for first-time users, though, because it is a small black-on-black button, so you may see people closing your power liftgate manually. And when the liftgate is opened, groceries can come tumbling out because there is no lip to stop them.

Interior

The inner Tahoe is all new for 2015, with improved materials, new seats, new (more legible, more attractive) instrumentation, enhanced connectivity and infotainment.

The design team invested substantial time and budget in noise suppression, making the Tahoe just about the quietest ride in its class, along with the similarly improved Suburban and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

The optional MyLink infotainment system features an 8-inch color touch screen in the middle of the dashboard. The navigation system is very easy to use. Punching in an address is quick and easy because a virtual keyboard pops up allowing the address to be typed in using commas as one would type on a computer.

The rear rows fold flat, and a power-folding option is available for the seatbacks, as well as power operation for the rear hatch.

It’s hard to find much fault with this new interior, even in the standard base model. Our only reservation is one that was also true of the previous generation: a very snug third row, with limited leg room and a knees-up seating position thanks to the high load floor.

We could not find the button to turn on the cruise control, though no doubt this is covered in the owner’s manual.

Leave the key fob in the car may cause the horn to blow, unnecessary when at a location where security is not a concern.

Unfortunately, GM’s excellent new head-up display isn’t available for the Tahoe or Suburban; it’s reserved for the GMC Yukon lineup. And the luxurious High Country interior option that’s new this year with the Chevy Silverado isn’t available for the Suburban or Tahoe. Leather trim is offered, but if you want the really posh furnishings you need a Yukon Denali.

Driving Impressions

The Chevrolet Tahoe is smaller than the Suburban, but that doesn’t mean small. With passengers, cargo or a combination of both, the Tahoe weighs in over the 3-ton mark. Its gross vehicle weight ratings (curb weight plus whatever may be on board) are 7100 pounds for 2WD, 7300 pounds with 4WD, and max payloads are 1702 and 1760, respectively. Mass plus a tall profile limit handling responses, and all that weight affects stopping distances.

On the other hand, the chassis engineers have done a very good job with the new suspension tuning, particularly in the LTZ, with its magnetic ride control. As a result, the Tahoe is surprisingly willing in its responses to commands from the helm. This is attributable, at least in part, to improved roll stiffness. Though the center of gravity is high in a vehicle of this type, giving mass more leverage in cornering maneuvers, that phenomenon is minimized by the magnetic damping system, which limits suspension body roll, allowing quicker recovery in rapid transitions. It also helps that weight distribution is close to 50/50, front/rear.

The steering, a new electric assist power rack and pinion system, is a little numb and rather slow at 3.4 turns lock to lock. But even so, the new rig is agile by big SUV standards. This doesn’t make the Tahoe a slalom star; weight will have its say in any dynamic equation. But it does give the driver a better chance of turning a crash into a near miss. And it does so without sacrificing ride quality, which trends toward firm, but it takes a pretty nasty bump to find its way to the vehicle’s occupants.

Braking is another strong suit, again with a for-its-size asterisk. Brake pedal feel is firm, it’s easy to modulate pedal pressure, and the Tahoe stops straight and true. We can’t testify to fade resistance, other than to say we failed to provoke any fade with a few hard stops and repeated use in mountain driving, and we don’t know about stopping distances other than to mention that GM claims a slight reduction. But we can testify to system function, which is very good.

Considering the Tahoe’s role as an all-around pachyderm, the new 5.3-liter V8 is a definite improvement over its predecessor. The Tahoe gets off the line quickly, especially with the 3:42 final drive in our tester, throttle response is right now, and the operation of its cylinder deactivation system, from V8 to V4 in light load conditions, is totally transparent.

One final noteworthy dynamic element: interior noise. Anyone who’s unable to converse at living room voice levels when the Tahoe is operating at freeway speeds needs a hearing aid. Wind noise is minimal, road noise ditto, and the only time the engine becomes audible is when the driver tramps on the gas, opening flapper valves in the plumbing and adding a pleasant V8 baritone to the mix.

Summary

Smooth, exceptionally quiet, comfortable, capable, and powerful, the latest Tahoe continues to be the quintessential big job family wagon. Tahoe continues to be a solid family workhorse with the added attraction of more grunt and more refinement. It’s a little less expensive and a little lighter than the Suburban, and a little handier around town. You can get a fancier version of the Tahoe at the GMC store. But with the exception of the increased power option, you won’t get any better.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
