What's New in the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe?

Aside from a minor reshuffling of some option packages, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe carries over largely unchanged. See the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe models for sale near you

Which Tahoe is the Best?

We'd pick the middle LT trim as the best choice. It offers more than enough amenities and can be loaded with many of the Premier's standard features should you decide more is better. Those who must deal with winter's worst on an annual basis would be well-advised to choose 4WD. Find a Chevrolet Tahoe for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe Cost?

The 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe comes in three trims: LS, LT and Premier. All three can be outfitted with 4WD. The upgraded RST package with the larger engine is only offered on the Premier trim.

Chevrolet Tahoe Safety

Is the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe a Safe Car?

The Tahoe carries a full complement of airbags, including front-seat, side-impact and full-length side-curtain airbags. Also standard is the segment's only front-seat center-mounted airbag (models with bucket seats only), which provides greater protection to the driver and the passenger in the event of a side-impact collision.

Optional safety equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, Chevrolet's Safety Alert Seat, forward-collision alert with automatic braking, adaptive headlights and lane-keeping assist. Teen Driver allows parents to monitor maximum speed, distance driven and the number of active safety features engaged while driving.

In crash testing carried out by the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Tahoe earned four overall stars out of five. The SUV has not yet been tested by the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

2020 Chevrolet Tahoe vs the competition

2020 Ford Expedition -- The Ford Expedition equals the Tahoe for size and passenger space. Ford's big SUV, however, can tow more weight than the Tahoe, features an aluminum body and has a flush-folding rear seat for improved cargo room and easy loading. The Expedition's dash design isn't as elegant as the Tahoe's, and the materials are not as polished. In place of the Tahoe's V8, Ford offers a twin-turbocharged V6 engine.

2020 GMC Yukon -- Not surprisingly, we recommend checking out the Tahoe's GMC mechanical twin. The Yukon is similar in most ways, though it's pitched as a slightly more upscale model, with a higher price tag to match.

2020 Chevrolet Traverse -- The recently redesigned Traverse can't tow as much as the Tahoe, but its interior is surprisingly roomy, and it can hold up to eight passengers. The Traverse also rides and handles more like a car, is easy to park and maneuver and has better gas mileage. Its starting price is about $15,000 less than the Tahoe's base MSRP.

Used Cadillac Escalade -- If you like the Tahoe's size and interior volume but want more attitude, you'll want to check out the Cadillac Escalade, as it offers more power, more stuff and a bolder look. Prices are steep, though, so you may want to consider a used model.
