2013 Chevrolet Tahoe


Pros:  Strong V8 engine; seats up to nine; towing capabilities, tasteful styling.

Cons: Big and expensive; cramped third –row seat.

With sky-high fuel prices and no relief in sight, the full-size SUV market continues to dwindle. Despite this, there are still a number of folks that appreciate the blend of truck toughness and refined practicality found in the 201 Chevrolet Tahoe. The Tahoe is slightly smaller than its big Suburban brother but is just as beefy offering high profile seating, excellent visibility, and a hearty body on frame structure. Although it is too big and heavy for everyday use, it is a smart choice for buyers who need pick-up truck capability but want a more manageable size.
