The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe is the number one best-selling full-size SUV in America— previous models of the Tahoe series have also earned this title for the past several years. Considering the expansive selection of SUVs available on the modern auto market, that achievement definitely means something.
The reliability and all around high quality of the Chevrolet Tahoe is enough to earn it its crown at the top of the American full-size SUV market. However, what really sets the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe apart form other quality full-size SUVs is its impressive versatility.
Unlike many other full-size SUVs, the 2019 Chevy Tahoe has a comfortable, roomy interior and offers a smooth ride. This SUV offers plenty of room for passengers. It features three roomy rows of seats that can accommodate up to eight passengers at a time. If you don’t have use for that much passenger space, you can choose to forgo a third row of seats and get additional built-in storage boxes instead. This type of extreme customizability is common for the Tahoe and contributes to this SUV’s versatility.
The 2019 Tahoe is built with a body-on-frame design, which is unique among full-size SUVs. This construction gives drivers and passengers alike the comfortable feeling of riding in a truck rather than a huge hauling vehicle. The Tahoe’s soft-spring suspension and high ground clearance absorbs bumpiness on tough terrains and keeps passengers from feeling turbulence inside the car to ensure a smooth ride for everyone.
When it comes to full-size SUVs that are often relied upon for hauling large amounts of weight at a time, power is a must. The 2019 Tahoe and its two powerful engine options do not disappoint in this area. This SUV’s standard engine is a 5.3-L V8 engine with 355 horsepower that offers plenty of power for everyday driving and hauling. A more powerful 6.2-L V8 engine with 420 horsepower is also available as an optional upgrade.
The 5.3-L and 6.2-L engines come with 4-speed and 10-speed automatic transmission, respectively. Regardless of which engine option you choose, the Tahoe has an impressive hauling capability. It can safely tow up to 8,400 pounds at a time.
Impressive Fuel Efficiency
When it comes to power and efficiency, the 2019 Tahoe gives you the best of both worlds. Its engine offers major power, but its fuel efficiency is also surprisingly competitive among other models in its vehicle class. Impressive fuel efficiency makes longer trips and everyday driving much more practical in this full-size SUV.
The combined city/highway gas mileage of Chevy’s 2019 Tahoe is 19 MPG, which is significantly higher than the mileage of many other full-size SUVs with as much power and towing capability as the Tahoe. To break it down further, the Tahoe gets about 14 MPG on city streets and 23 MPG on the highway.
The high-tech connectivity features that are standard and available for Chevy’s 2019 Tahoe keep you constantly connected, entertained, and oriented when you’re on the go. An eight-inch MyLink touchscreen is built into the roomy center console of this SUV. This screen is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can easily play your favorite music straight from your mobile device.
An optional feature available in the 2019 Tahoe is a Rear-Seat Entertainment System that is compatible with Blu-ray to keep passengers in the second and third row entertained with their own drop-down screen to watch. This available entertainment system includes digital headphones as well to reduce driver distraction without disrupting passenger entertainment. The Rear-Seat Entertainment System expands the functionality of the Tahoe as a family-friendly car that expertly accommodates younger backseat passengers and keeps them entertained on longer car rides. The 2019 Tahoe also features 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, a wireless charging station, and seven different USB ports strategically placed throughout the car to allow all passengers and drivers to keep their devices fully charged and connected at all times.
Driving a heavy, powerful vehicle like a full-size SUV can be nerve-wracking, but the multitude of advanced, modern safety features that are standard or available in the 2019 Tahoe give you peace of mind while you drive. These many safety options also make this SUV more appropriate as an everyday family car as well as a functional hauling vehicle.
Notable safety features that are available for the 2019 Tahoe include: low speed forward automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, a rear vision camera, lane change alert, blind spot alert, a safety alert seat, rear cross traffic alert, rear park assist, and more.
