2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Overview

Is the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe a Good Used SUV?

The redesigned three-row 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is one of the best used large SUVs on the market. It boasts a muscular, polished engine and a ride that’s comfortable yet composed. It also has strong safety and reliability ratings for the class. The Tahoe’s cabin is well-insulated from outside noise and made with quality materials, making it one of the nicest in the segment. However, large families in need of cargo space will not be impressed with the Chevy Tahoe’s subpar cargo capacity.

How Much Does the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Cost to Own?

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe’s five-year estimated costs for gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs come to nearly $28,520, which is typical for a three-row SUV.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Chevrolet Tahoe?

Chevrolet completely redesigned the Tahoe for 2015. The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe is part of the same generation, but it does come with several upgrades, such as the Teen Driver system that monitors the driving habits of younger drivers. The 2019 is also available with a V8 engine that you couldn’t get in the 2015 model. Finally, the new Tahoe has an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, lane keep assist, auto high beams, and a head-up display.

However, all these perks come at a price. The 2019 Tahoe starts $48,000, which is significantly more than the 2015 model’s average list price. You’ll get more with the 2019, but the 2015 is a perfectly fine large SUV that can save you a considerable chunk of money.

To find a new three-row SUV with a price that’s comparable to the average 2015 Tahoe, you’ll need to look to the midsize SUV class, since there are no new large SUVs that are comparably priced to a 2015 Tahoe. Starting at $26,290, the three-row 2019 Kia Sorento is an appealing option that boasts a smooth ride, comfortable seating for seven, and a luxurious cabin with an easy-to-use infotainment system.

Which Model Year of the Chevrolet Tahoe Is Best?

The 2015 model year marks the beginning of the Tahoe’s fourth generation, which includes the 2019 model. While the 2015 Tahoe is an excellent vehicle, we recommend looking at the 2016 Tahoe. This was the first model with a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and a customizable gauge cluster. The 2017 Tahoe gained a Teen Driver system and a rear-seat reminder system. If you want more horsepower, consider the 2018 Tahoe, which is available with a V8 engine. These are all excellent SUVs, so go with the one that best matches your budget and needs.

Which Used Chevrolet Tahoe Model Is Right for Me?

The Tahoe LT adds some desirable safety features like forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and a safety alert seat that vibrates to signal various safety feature warnings.

We recommend the Chevy Tahoe LTZ for most shoppers. It provides the best combination of premium materials, technology, and safety equipment. It has perforated leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel. The Tahoe LTZ also comes with blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, parking sensors, aluminum wheels, and a Magnetic Ride Control suspension.

What Does Chevrolet's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Chevrolet offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 75,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Chevy extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to six years or 100,000 miles. These vehicles also get a one-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty after the three-year/36,000-mile new-car warranty expires. Chevrolet CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and 24-hour roadside assistance may be available, so read Chevy’s warranty page carefully.

Chevrolet has one of the better CPO programs among affordable carmakers. Hyundai, Buick, and Kia are better, according to our analysis.
