2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
2015 Chevrolet Tahoe

New for 2015

The Chevrolet Tahoe has been heavily revised for 2015, gaining updated styling, an upgraded interior, longer equipment list, a more efficient engine, as well as a quieter and more comfortable ride.

Vehicle Overview

The Chevrolet Tahoe is a three-row SUV that offers seating for nine passengers, an 8,500-pound towing capacity, and new safety features that set it apart from the competition. The mechanically identical Suburban sits on a longer platform and loses some towing capacity, but gains significantly more cargo capacity and rear passenger space. Among Chevrolet's three-row SUVs, the Tahoe sits below the Suburban and above the less expensive Traverse crossover.

Summary

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is motivated by a 5.3-liter V-8 that makes 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, and gets paired with a six-speed automatic. Rear-drive Tahoes are rated by the EPA at 16/23 mpg, and 16/22 mpg in four-wheel drive. The capabilities remain a capable 8,300/8,500 pounds in 4WD and RWD models, 15.3/51.6/94.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the third, second, and first rows. Throughout the interior there are a number of particularly useful features, such as an 8-inch infotainment screen that hides a lit storage area, power folding rear seats, hands-free programmable power liftgate, available wireless charging for personal electronics (inductive, requires a special case for the device), available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot (requires a subscription), a rear-seat entertainment system with a nine-inch screen, Bose premium audio system, and hands-free keyless access with push-button start.
The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe introduces a suite of safety features, such as adaptive cruise control, front automatic braking, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and a side blind zone alert with lane change alert. The Safety Alert Seat is a recent innovation introduced on several GM products that warns drivers of threats with vibrations on the right and left of the driver’s seat bottom cushion. Instead of the typical beeping from a backup sensor, the seat will vibrate to alert drivers when pulling into a tight parking spot, or when the Tahoe’s sensors detect a potential collision, such as when a turn signal is activated and a car is detected approaching from the passenger side; the seat will vibrate on the right.
The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe received a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), but has not been evaluated by the IIHS.

What We Think

The 2015 Tahoe is the smaller of the two full-size Chevrolet SUVs, with a 14-inch shorter wheelbase and 20-inch shorter body than the Suburban. That shorter body, however, gives up a significant amount of cargo capacity and third-row comfort (10-inches less legroom for the way back passengers). Unlike the Suburban, the Tahoe draws a much closer comparison with three-row crossovers, with towing capacity being the only major advantage. Fuel economy is good in the segment, but when cross-shopped with capable three-row SUVs it doesn’t compare well.
In a Driven review of the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban, we said, “It’s harder, though, to make a case for the Tahoe. Chevrolet’s own Traverse has significantly more cargo space (behind any of its three rows) and a much more usable third-row seat in a similar-sized package. The only real advantage for the Tahoe is trailer towing, where the V-8-powered, body-on-frame SUV puts the V-6 Traverse crossover, well, on the trailer.”
When compared to the slightly less efficient, but more capable Ford Expedition the Tahoe begins to lose some allure. The Ford raises towing capacity to 9,200 pounds, while providing a more usable third row. Unless you’re willing to step up to the bigger Suburban, the Tahoe will remain a brand-loyalty purchase over the Ford. With a towing capacity of 5,200 pounds, a 2015 Chevrolet Traverse also makes a compelling argument for light-duty towing with a full load of passengers. Buyers needing passenger, cargo, and towing capability ought to look to the not-much-more-expensive Suburban or the Ford Expedition.
Despite the negatives, the 2015 Tahoe is an improved SUV, combining the attributes that made it successful in years past with greater efficiency and a more luxurious interior. We noted, “The dash has greater dimension than before; there are fewer hard plastics; and well-padded surfaces cover the door panels and armrests.” We also said “the large console creates a vast amount of storage space; there is also an abundance of power points and USB outlets. We were more impressed, though, with the well-thought-out switchgear.” The Tahoe’s smaller footprint makes it easier to maneuver in an urban environment, so if use of the third row is kept to short trips, the smaller Chevrolet makes a compelling alternative to the capable, but gargantuan, Suburban.

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 Front Three Quarter
Chevrolet announced that two new packages will join the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban—the popular Z71 package and a new Texas Edition. The Texas Edition is an aesthetic and convenience package, while the Z71 package for the Tahoe and Suburban does add some off-road performance capability.

Sales of the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban full-size SUVs have come out of the gate strong over the last few months, as customers were clearly swayed by the vehicles’ 5.3-liter, 355-hp V-8 and surprisingly comfortable driving dynamics. Now buyers will be able to opt for an additional Z71 option package, although Chevrolet declined to reveal any more details on the package, such as included equipment and pricing, promising that more information will be forthcoming in late September.

After such a big sales total in May, some thought the market might take a breather in June. Instead, auto sales heated up even further. Although the year-over-year increase was just 1% (last June was pretty strong too), the annualized sales rate reached 17 million units, a figure not seen since 2006.

Staying power

It's easy to dismiss the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe as a relic from a bygone era. The SUV premiered when gas cost a buck a gallon, and its best years coincided with the first term of President George W. Bush. Yet General Motors managed to sell 83,502 Tahoes in 2013 along with 28,302 GMC Yukons. That's nearly equal to the U.S. sales of the similarly priced BMW 3-/4-series. No wonder GM deemed the vehicle worthy of another round of investment, resulting in the new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe.

No matter how you look at it, trucks are a big part of General Motors. Chevrolet and GMC full-size pickups are consistently among the company’s top-selling vehicles, and GM’s full-size, truck-based SUVs dominate the large utility segment. But the U.S. truck market is an extremely competitive one, with Ford, Chrysler, and GM constantly making improvements to one-up the competition in terms of capability, refinement, and fuel economy. At a launch event for the 2015 Chevrolet and GMC full-size SUVs, we talked to key members of GM’s truck team to hear more about what the company's truck strategy will look like going forward.
