Our Opinion - 2024 Chevy Tahoe Review

The full-size Chevrolet Tahoe has a lot of great features. It’s a huge SUV that can fit eight people. The Tahoe, like its longer sister, the Suburban, comes with three different engine choices. All of them are paired with an automatic 10-speed transmission and either rear- or four-wheel drive. There is a smooth 355-hp V-8 base engine and a more powerful 420-hp V-8 on top of it. The supercharged Duramax diesel is better than the two gas V-8s for people who care about gas mileage. For added convenience, all Tahoes come with three rows of seats. Big all-terrain tires and a changeable air suspension make this big Chevy easier to drive. The Tahoe is again on our Editors’ Choice list this year because it is both capable and easy to use. It has the best Tahoe features in a more polished form, but it also has more options for people who want a slightly different look.

There won’t be any big changes to the full-size Tahoe that Chevrolet sells in 2024.


  • Large, strong engines.
  • Optimal setting of the transmission.
  • Large inside.


  • The main suspension’s rough ride.
  • Putting buttons in an awkward place.
  • Incredibly inefficient gasoline engines.

A V-8 engine has always been in the most recent Tahoe models. With a 3.0-liter diesel six-cylinder engine, both the standard 5.3-liter, 355-hp block and the extra 6.2-liter, 420-hp block can be found. The oil burner has the least horsepower of the three, but its 460 pound-feet of torque is about the same as the bigger V-8s. Every Tahoe comes with an automatic transmission with ten speeds and either rear- or all-wheel drive. We tested the Z71’s base V-8 engine, which is made for off-road use. It has protection for the undercarriage, 20-inch all-terrain tires, and a two-speed transfer case for normal four-wheel drive. It was very quiet inside our sample car when it was going 65 mph on the highway, and the stop pedal felt solid. The top-of-the-line Premier and High Country models already have adjustable dampers, and the Z71 package adds air springs that let you change the Tahoe’s ride height manually or automatically. The later and RST models both come with finished 22-inch wheels that make the car look better from the street.

The Chevy offers a wide range of basic driving assistance technologies as well as a number of advanced towing assistance options. You can use GM’s Super Cruise feature without using your hands if you have the Premier or High Country trim level. Visit the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) webpages to learn more about the Tahoe’s crash test scores. Some important safety factors are:

  • Emergency brakes that work on their own and regular forward crash warnings.
  • Consistent assistance in maintaining your lane, as well as a warning whenever you stray from your lane.
  • You can get adaptive speed control with a hands-free mode.

The full-size Tahoe’s cabin feels bigger than the cabins of smaller mid-size SUVs. Standard seating has three rows, and the chairs in the second row can be moved forward and backward to give people more options and comfortable way-back seating. Because of its independent rear suspension, the Tahoe’s cabin features a load floor that is both low and flat under gravity. The cargo area can grow to 123 cubic feet when the second and third seats are pulled down. It’s also possible for six carry-on bags to fit under the third row. Chevy’s new push-button and slider shifter system, which replaced the old column shifter, is a nice touch. However, the motorized, retractable center console lid seems like a gimmick, especially since the control switch is on the roof. Overall, the Tahoe’s internal ergonomics are better, though.

This option is only on the Tahoe that gets the best gas mileage. It has a diesel engine that gets 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The standard 5.3-liter V-8 and the extra 6.2-liter V-8 both get 20 mpg on the highway, but the basic V-8 is thought to use less gas in the city. As part of our strict testing process, we drove a Tahoe with a diesel engine on our 75-mph highway route and got 27 mpg on average.

Road trips are more relaxing for people who are seated, and the Tahoe’s many entertainment and communication tools help make this possible. All models have a 10.2-inch tablet that works with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Chevy with three rows of seats has a lot of charging ports inside, a Bose sound system that can be added as an extra, and an entertainment system for the back seats with two 12.6-inch screens behind the front seats.

The Chevy Tahoe’s strong engine makes it a small package that can do the work of two cars. The Tahoe can pull up to 8,400 pounds, which is almost as much as some full-size pickup trucks. It has room for eight people. To do this, though, you will need a Tahoe with rear-wheel drive and a 5.3-liter V-8 engine. The Tahoe with a 6.2-liter engine can pull up to 8300 pounds, and the Tahoe with a Duramax diesel engine can pull up to 8200 pounds. When four-wheel drive is added, all of these values drop by 200 pounds.

The mid-range RST and Z71 models are our top picks for the best value. The Z71 is better for adventurers, while the RST is more flashy. We like the Z71’s unique off-road features, tough build, and regular four-wheel drive. We would also get the new 6.2-liter V-8 engine, which has 65 more horsepower and 77 more pound-feet of torque than the basic 5.3-liter V-8. Our Z71 would also come with the Z71 Signature package, which has a lot of nice features. Blind-spot tracking, memory settings, a panoramic sunroof, a power-folding third row, a heated steering wheel, and seats in the second row are just a few of the nice features. The ability to tow has also been improved.
