2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

We’ve covered a wide variety in our rundown of the best cars for a Labor Day road trip, and there’s just one obvious omission: a large, powerful SUV. According to the U.S. News rankings, the 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe is the way to go.

We’ll caution here that the thirsty Chevy Tahoe is perhaps best saved for road trips that actually require eight-passenger capacity, the brute strength of a V8 engine, or the capability to tow a boat or camper.

In spite of its ruggedness, critics say the Tahoe’s upscale cabin ensures comfort. The seats are comfortable over the course of a long drive, and, despite the Tahoe’s size, it handles smoothly and is easy to control. For 2016, Chevrolet added Apple CarPlay to the infotainment system, making it easier to plan and manage the details of the trip. New active safety equipment is available this year too, for extra peace of mind while far from home.
