The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe gains an integrated trailer-brake controller with the optional Trailering package, and continues much as before, and that, no doubt, is fine with a giant number of folks who have grown to appreciate its mix of van toughness and surprisingly refined practicality.
Like the Chevrolet Suburban to which it is related, the Tahoe is a do-anything, go-anywhere sport-utility vehicle. Its truck-based architecture and strong V8 engine permit it to tow heavy lots, and the obtainable four-wheel-drive method can take you off-road or through the snow. These are not necessarily activities that are undertaken every day, but only a vehicle with big-truck capability can deliver when the time comes. And yet when it comes to everyday use, the Tahoe's comparatively comfortable ride and its well-executed cabin with rows of seats make it a practical choice. In the period of the crossover, few vehicles offer such a combination.
Within its segment, the Chevy Tahoe compares well to the Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia. The Expedition offers a third-row chair that conveniently folds away to expand cargo capacity, yet the Ford is not as powerful as the Tahoe. The Sequoia is the Tahoe's most serious competitor; it offers a similar mix of performance and utility. We'll also point out that if pure passenger use is more important than toting and towing, a huge crossover SUV is a better pick.
