How front crash prevention is evaluated


Infotainment and Connectivity

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 myriad interior charging ports, the three-row Chevy offers a powerful Bose audio system and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch displays mounted behind the front seats.

The Tahoe’s biggest drawback is its size

The biggest detractor from the 2022 Chevy Tahoe’s overall appeal is its size. What immediately stuck out on the Tahoe’s Consumer Reports driving test was a large hood that blocks the driver’s line of sight, there are also other size-related issues, like: 
  • The SUV’s clearance means drivers and passengers will need to hoist themselves in, especially without standard running boards.

  • Notable body roll around corners.

  • Non-responsive steering, meaning that emergency avoidance maneuvering will be difficult.

  • Oversized windshield pillars that create large blind spots. 

Not ever being known for fuel efficiency either, the 2022 Tahoe sucks down an estiamted 17 mpg overall.MORE: A Small Percentage of Drivers Burn a Third of the Gas

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The most fuel-efficient Tahoe features the available diesel engine, with ratings of 21 mpg city and 28 highway. The standard 5.3-liter V-8 is estimated to be slightly thriftier in the city than the optional 6.2-liter V-8, but both are rated at 20 mpg on the highway. We tested a diesel-powered Tahoe on our 75-mph highway route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, and observed 27 mpg.
