...Rear parking sensors and a rearview camera are available on every Tahoe, while the Tahoe LTZ can be had with a blind-spot warning system. In government crash safety tests, the Tahoe earned an overall rating of four stars (out of five), with five stars for overall frontal-impact crash protection and five stars for overall side-impact crash protection. Its three-star rollover rating contributed to its lower overall score. In Edmunds brake testing, a Tahoe came to a stop from 60 mph in 134 feet, an average distance for a vehicle in this class.

...And with almost 123 cubic feet of cargo space and a towing capacity of 7,000 pounds, it doesn't matter what you have, you can take it with you. Chevrolet's patented Insta-Trac system is standard on 4X4 models. Shifting from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive and back can be accomplished by pushing a button on the instrument panel. It's pretty obvious that if you are on slippery roads, you put the vehicle in four-wheel driv e and leave it there. When dry roads are encountered, just push the button. There is nothing quite like moving 2 1/2 tons of motor vehicle with a certain degree of...

...The driver faces a new airbag and revised instrument panel. A passenger airbag is not available. On the Interstates, a Tahoe rides nicely, but the wide body takes some getting used to if you're accustomed to compacts. Turning onto smaller roads, it suddenly feels more like a truck. Easy to control either way, the sizable machine is reasonably maneuverable, if driven with discretion. The V8 is strong, and the four-speed automatic transmission shifts neatly. Think about the "entry assist" running boards if your regular riders aren't so nimble. They help. So do the robust grab bars that ease...

...rear parking assist Optional backup camera with image in the rearview mirror or navigation screen if equipped Optional rear-seat DVD entertainment system Under the Hood Tahoes are powered by a flex-fuel 320-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 engine that makes 335 pounds-feet of torque on gasoline or 326 hp and 348 pounds-feet of torque on E85 ethanol. The engine has a cast-iron block on two-wheel-drive models and an aluminum block on four-wheel-drive Tahoes. When properly configured, the Tahoe can tow up to 8,500 pounds.

...and the tire jack with a pair of gloves to keep your hands clean on the right; the rear seat bottoms and backs fold forward and flat to provide more cargo capacity. Also, front and rear shoulder belts adjust to user height; an overhead roofconsole holds garage door opener and glasses (but eliminates room for a sunroof); shades pull out from the visors to block side-window glare; two-sided galvanized metal in all body panels except the roof guard against rust; front and rear seat have overhead map lights; a pull-out shade hides cargo; the center console holds cassettes, maps and coins; and two...

...FIT AND FINISH Our Tahoe came furnished with a superbly designed set of leather-covered captain's chairs up front and folding rear seats. Its user-friendly interior was comfortable and stylish. Chevy has taken most of the visual clutter out of the switches, controls and gauges, and made most of the items that a driver would touch easy to read and use. Two buttons and two knobs handle the air-conditioning system. The buttons on the radio have been made larger, and now you don't have to press a separate button to lock in stations on the radio. The dash is cleanly designed and has many useful...

...When the V8 gets chugging, it can tow up to 7,000 pounds, or 3 1/2 tons. To make things even more interesting, the engine is mated to an automatic that now uses Dexron III, a transmission fluid that Chevrolet says never needs replacing under normal service. A side issue here is that the smaller Tahoe two-door hasa 395-cubic-inch (6.5-liter) turbo-diesel V8 available that is rated at 180 horsepower and 360 foot -pounds of torque. But Chevy has decided not to offer this motor in its four-door version. Today's sport-utility vehicle is as much a suburban commuter vehicle as it is a workhorse...

...Plenty of smaller SUVs do better than the Tahoe's 15 mpg city/21 highway with its 6-speed automatic, but nobody can beat its 320-hp, 335 lb-ft/torque 5.3-liter Flex-Fuel V8. This is a full-size can-do 8,500-pound hauler with go-anywhere all-wheel drive available and the ability to bring 9 people along for a remarkably smooth ride. It's not the most graceful or nimble SUV, but whatever the job, the Tahoe is built to take it on with reasonable consideration for its passengers.Starting at a few hairs shy of $40,000, the Tahoe comes well-equipped in its LS base trim, with features like 17-inch...
