2023 Chevrolet Tahoe Review: This New Chevy May SHOCK You!
Large truck-based SUVs like the Chevrolet Tahoe are some of the most useful vehicles you can buy. They can haul a large family around, tow a boat to the lake, and take you on an off-road adventure. Their large size, however, means they are thirsty for fuel and are less fun to drive than a minivan. And when it comes to ride quality, don’t have high expectations. Fortunately, the Tahoe offers several advanced features like the new Super Cruise hands-free semi-automated driving system and magnetically controlled shock absorbers (for better ride and handling capabilities) to offset some of those shortcomings.
Chevrolet made several updates to the 2023 Tahoe. Most notable is the addition of the aforementioned Super Cruise system, which is available on the top two trim levels, the Premier and High Country. The top-spec High Country trim now comes with adaptive cruise control as standard equipment.
The Tahoe is Chevrolet’s second-largest SUV behind the longer Suburban. It competes against other large truck-based SUVs such as the Ford Expedition, the redesigned Toyota Sequoia and the new kid on the block, the Jeep Wagoneer. The Tahoe is very competitive but lacks comfortable seats and has some cheap-looking interior materials.
With tons of space inside for passengers and cargo, the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe is big in all the ways you want it to be—but it feels more agile on the road than other large SUVs. Three engine options are available, and the Tahoe delivers decent towing capacity with any one of them. The entry-level engine is a 355-hp V8 but a beefier 420-hp V8 is just a check-box away on the order form. Unlike past generations of the Tahoe, a six-cylinder diesel inline-six is now also available. Three-row seating is standard and even the base LS trim comes equipped with popular infotainment and driver-assistance features. Off-road adventurers will find the Z 71 model best suited for their interests, as it includes a two-speed transfer case, an adjustable air suspension, and meaty all-terrain tires. A more refined experience can be found in the pricier Premier and High Country models, but if you’re not careful you’ll find yourself paying Cadillac Escalade money for a Chevy.

The Tahoe has been powered by a V8 for its entire life, which continues for this latest generation. However, its standard 355-hp 5.3-liter and available 420-hp 6.2-liter blocks are joined by a 3.0-liter diesel six-cylinder engine. While the oil-burner has the least horsepower of the three, its 460 pound-feet of torque matches that of the bigger V8. Every Tahoe is equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive. The off-road-oriented Z 71 model is with the standard V8, which also has a two-speed transfer case that provides traditional four-wheel drive, 20-inch wheels wrapped with all-terrain tires, and underbody protection. The Z 71 package also brings air springs (that allow the Tahoe’s ride height to be automatically and manually lowered or raised) and adaptive dampers, which are standard on the upper-echelon Premier and High Country. The latter and the RST model both ride on glitzy 22-inch rims for added curb appeal. When properly equipped, the Tahoe can tow up to 8,400 pounds.
The wide-opening doors offer easy access to front and rear seats, and even third-row passengers have ample headroom to get to their seats. The driver’s seat and steering wheel have a wide range of adjustment to suit a variety of drivers. Visibility is generally good, though the tall front end can make it nearly impossible to see obstacles closer than 6 feet away. Thankfully, the Tahoe offers an excellent multi-view camera system to make parking in tight spots a breeze.
The dash-mounted push-button shifter has forced many secondary controls to be relocated and bunched together and the redundant controls for the audio system and touchscreen take up too much prime dashboard real estate. The Tahoe’s steering wheel-mounted controls aren’t very intuitive either.
The new Tahoe can hold 25.5 cubic feet of stuff behind the third-row seats compared to the predecessor’s 15.3 cubic feet. The maximum capacity grows to 122.9 cubic feet.
Placated passengers translate into relaxing road trips, and the Tahoe’s robust infotainment and connectivity features help ensure that translation. Every model is outfitted with a 10.2-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. In addition to its various interior charging ports, the three-row Chevy offers an optional Bose stereo system and an available rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch displays mounted behind the front seats.
The most fuel-efficient Tahoe features the available diesel engine, with ratings of 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. The standard 5.3-liter V8 is estimated to be slightly thriftier in the city than the optional 6.2-liter V8, but both are rated at 20 mpg on the highway.
The 2023 Chevy Tahoe rates a relatively rare four stars overall from the NHTSA, and it has yet to be tested by the IIHS. Automatic emergency braking, active lane control, parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, and a slew of airbags come standard, but adaptive cruise control is optional. This year, the High Country trim offers Super Cruise, a limited hands-free driver-assistance system that uses pre-mapped highway data to give drivers a break – as long as they’re looking forward, that is Speaking of vision, beefy roof pillars and rear-seat headrests mean the Tahoe can be hard to see out of around town or in crowded parking lots.
Its estimated price starts around at $56,000.
