2014 Chevrolet Tahoe Overview

Is the 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe a Good Used SUV?

The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe can seat up to nine people and has a powerful engine and an attractive, spacious interior, all of which make it a good choice for families. The Tahoe won our 2014 Best Large SUV for the Money and 2014 Best Large SUV for Families awards.

The Chevrolet Tahoe features a 5.3-liter V8 engine that puts out 320 horsepower and 335 pound-feet of torque. It's mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. The Tahoe's engine is plenty powerful, and it gets good gas mileage for a large SUV (though not for a vehicle overall), earning 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

Though it comes standard with rear-wheel drive, the Tahoe is available with four-wheel drive. The ride is smooth, and there is little body roll around turns. The Tahoe is also surprisingly maneuverable for such a large vehicle. It can tow up to 8,500 pounds when properly equipped.

The Tahoe has three rows of seats and can seat up to nine people. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, and the second and third rows are easy to get in and out of for most people. The Tahoe has two full sets of LATCH connectors for installing car seats, both in the second row. An unusual quirk makes the Tahoe's cargo area somewhat inconvenient: To unlock the Tahoe's maximum cargo capacity you have to remove the third-row seat.

The Chevy Tahoe has a well-built, attractive cabin, though the design looks a little dated; 2014 was the last model year of the Tahoe's third generation. Standard features include a USB port, satellite radio, and Bluetooth phone connectivity. Tri-zone automatic climate control, a power sunroof, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, a rear-seat entertainment system, and navigation are available. The tech features are easy to use, and the controls are intuitive.

How Reliable Is the 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe?

As a class, large SUVs receive roughly average reliability ratings from J.D. Power and Associates (a rating of three out of five is average for a vehicle). The Chevrolet Tahoe is one of the most reliable cars in the class, earning a reliability rating of 3.5.

How Safe Is the Tahoe?

The 2014 Tahoe does not have crash test results from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but it did receive a four-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In a vacuum, the Tahoe's safety rating isn't that impressive; however, it is higher than most other cars in the class, as large SUVs don't have typically have high safety scores.

A rearview camera and rear parking sensors come standard in this Chevrolet SUV. There aren't any notable driver assistance features available.

Should I Consider Another Used Tahoe?

2014 was the last model year of the Tahoe's third generation, which began with the 2007 model. That means that the 2015 Tahoe is not only newer, but it's also a fully redesigned vehicle compared to the 2014 model. If you like the 2014 model, you might also like the 2013 or 2012 Tahoes, which are part of the same generation and tend to cost less. In fact, each model year is about $4,500 more expensive than the previous one. However, the newer models also generally include more features, so there is added value for that extra money. Of the 2012-2014 models, the 2013 is the best bet. It offers the same notable features the 2014 does, and it saves you several thousand dollars.

Which Used Tahoe Model Is Right for Me?

The Chevy Tahoe comes in three trims: LS, LT, and LTZ. All trims are available with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. All three feature the same engine, gas mileage, and cargo space, so the difference comes down to features. The LTZ trim is the most upscale. It comes standard with most of the features available in a Tahoe, and it includes sliding and reclining second-row bucket seats. You can get most of these features in the LT trim as well. If you want the most luxurious vehicle, go with the LTZ. Otherwise, save a little money and opt for the LT.

You might also consider a certified pre-owned Tahoe. For all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, Chevy extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to six years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. Chevrolet CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Chevy’s warranty page carefully.

2014 Chevrolet Tahoe and Other SUVS to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe or 2014 Ford Expedition?

Like the Tahoe, the 2014 Ford Expedition has a V8 engine, but the Ford SUV isn't as powerful or as fuel-efficient as its Chevrolet rival. The cabin quality is worse, and though the Expedition has three rows of spacious seats, its max capacity is eight people, whereas the Tahoe seats nine. The Expedition has a well-arranged dash and a nice features list, and the Expedition EL has one of the largest cargo capacities of any vehicle on the market. The Expedition has lower safety and reliability scores than the Tahoe. Overall, the Tahoe is simply a superior vehicle.

Which Is Better: 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe or 2014 Chevrolet Suburban?

As you might expect, the 2014 Chevrolet Suburban shares many similarities with the Tahoe. Both are enormous Chevy SUVs with the same V8 engine, and both seat up to nine people and have nearly identical features lists. However, the Tahoe has a higher maximum towing capacity and is more maneuverable, while the Suburban provides significantly more cargo space. They're close in terms of price, but the Suburban has the lowest reliability rating in the class. Don't overthink this all-Chevy matchup. Buy the Tahoe.
