2017 Chevrolet Tahoe Review, Specs and Design

Exterior

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe – can tow up to 8600 pounds, as well as cottage provides quiet, comfortable sanctuary. A 355-hp V-8 and six-speed computerized transmission is the sole powertrain, provided by rear- or all-wheel drive. Poor fuel economy and a tight third strip are drawbacks, but the Tahoe’s standard infotainment strategy is superb. While the hefty Chevy costs a pretty dime, its pickup-truck capacities and undeniable existence solidify its favorable spot on the family-hauler food chain.

The 2017 Tahoe lineup adds new equipment, and the Premier replaces the LTZ as the most notable trim. Every model now offers downloadable programs for the MyLink infotainment system, an easy to customize rear-seat reminder, active grille shutters for improved sleek efficiency, and General Motors’ Teen Driver system, which allows parents to monitor their kid’s driving behaviors. The Tahoe’s options list adopts low-speed automated crisis braking, new 22-inch tires, and illuminated bow-tie emblems. An updated rear entertainment system adds an HD connector, an extra USB port, digital headphones, and the ability to task media from a personal device to the drop-down screen. A new Night time Edition appearance package includes black exterior accents; Blue Velvet Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic join the paint palette.

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe Specs

Forget about turbo charge four-cylinders or even a V-6, for that matter. The Tahoe is only available with a small-block V-8 and a six-speed programmed transmission. This setup provides sufficient push and seamless shifts, but we’d choose the potent 420-hp 6. 2-liter V-8 that’s available on its corporate cousin, the GMC Yukon.

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe 5. 3-liter V-8 (355 horsepower/383 lb-ft of torque) is shared with several GM vehicles, including the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500. While Chevy’s 5. 3-liter is an amicable engine, it lacks the low-end response of most rivals and takes its time accelerating from zero to 60 with (7. 2 seconds). Its six-speed automated has fewer gears than others, but it sorts through them smoothly, albeit slowly. Rear-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is available. The Z71 Off-Road package is only available with the second option. It includes hill-descent control and a two-speed energetic transfer case for superior crawling and climbing off the beaten path.

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe Exterior

Apart from being mistaken frequently for a local law-enforcement vehicle, the squared-off Tahoe is a handsome behemoth. Its clean lines look good in comparison with chrome, and blacked-out versions boast a sinister appearance. Still, its big body can be a burden in tight spaces.

Unlike the GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade, the “2017 Chevrolet Tahoe” is merely available with one body style. People who want more third-row space and cargo capacity should think about the Chevrolet Suburban.

The Tahoe has had a glaring role in many a rap-music video, but the base model has nominal bling and “baby” 18-inch wheels. The top Premier trim has plentiful chrome trim and 20-inch wheels as standard; it also comes with high-intensity-discharge (HID) headlights, LED daytime working lights, and a hands free power liftgate.

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe Interior

The Tahoe has a quiet, comfortable cabin that can be when you have features galore. While the GMC Yukon room doesn’t meet its upscale aspirations, the build quality and materials inside the Tahoe are satisfactory for the price. Too bad they are all have a tight third row that isn’t very fit for adults.

The Tahoe provides plenty of space for passengers in the first two lanes, but its tight third row is basically reserved for those of short stature. Those hoping to haul more than six people would want to consider the for a longer time Chevy Suburban, the prolonged Yukon XL, or fundamentally some other SUV in this class.

The Tahoe Top we tested had an attractive cocoa and éminence interior color scheme, and the leather was elastic to the touch. Many surfaces above the waist were covered in soft touch plastics, and the large knobs and buttons made the controls easy to operate.

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe snacks passengers to cozy seats, with available front buckets and second-row captain’s chairs that replace the standard benches. While the second and third rows both fold flat manually, power-release and power-folding functions are available. Its set of standard features includes tri-zone environment control, a leather-wrapped steerage wheel, and power-adjustable front seats. Optional items include a head-up display with multiple readouts, a wireless asking pad, and a backseat entertainment system.

2017 Chevy Tahoe Prices

The entries level 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe LS starts at $48, 510 and has plenty of pleasing standard features such as remote start, rear parking sensors, tri-zone climate control, and an 8. 0-inch MyLink infotainment system with a 4G LTE mobile hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android os Auto. Adding all-wheel drive to any model costs $3000 and boosts the LS’s price to $51, 510. We prefer the mid-level LT, which adds high quality features including:

  • Lively safety features (lane-keeping assist, programmed high-beam headlights, and forward-collision alert)
  • Heated front bucket seats with memory settings
  • Leather-appointed first- and second-row seats
  • Power liftgate with programmable opening height
  • Bose premium sound system

On top of that, we would add the Z71 Rough-road package ($1850). This setup allows us to tame the paths with rugged all-terrain wheels, underbody protection (skid plates), and hill-descent control. That looks cooler, too, with black tubular assist steps and painted 18-inch rims. The final price of our all-wheel-drive Tahoe LUXURY TOURING Z71 is $58600
