EDITOR WES I’ll never turn a chance to drive a Chevrolet or a Suburban for that matter. are two of my favorites.

Why? Practicality has to be the top of the list. You can throw anything and inside. I did, and there’s of room for all of it.

Towing capacity — 8,000 pounds — is plus. We trailered my mom’s boat and never knew it was there. Perhaps most is the ride quality — it any other big, full-frame

It is smooth in the extreme, soaks up the around here beautifully, and is quiet on the freeway. No shuddering, no It feels indestructible.

Even it’s going to be replaced in a year, to me the body still fresh and attractive.

The V8 provides of oomph, and you have to really on it to feel the switch from V8 to cylinder power. The exhaust changes slightly and there’s the smallest vibration in the gas pedal. But it’s basically seamless.

Yeah, the Tahoe is starting to its age inside with hard on the dash, console and doors. I the design and shapes inside for the part and the assembly itself good, but the materials need an Also that the third row fold into the floor is not

A bit a roll, sure, but it doesn’t over onto its side and we to remember that this is a 5,700-pound vehicle with a ride height. Take all into consideration and what GM has with the Tahoe is worth of credit.

The V8 and six-speed automatic drivetrain is slick and moves the Tahoe without breaking a sweat. up to speed to merge onto the and pulling off passes are easily Unlike Wes, I didn’t tow it, but I did make a trip to a bulk store and loaded it up with

It’s hard to argue the utility you get with a giant

And yes, the interior is tired with too many hard and plastics all over the cabin the dash topper to the center The central touchscreen has hard that are way too small. However, the bucket seats are cushy and and noise isolation from and road noise is good.

But it’s certainly time for a of the Tahoe and Suburban. Hopefully, a improved interior is on the way and a more drivetrain.
