2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Overview

Is the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe a Good Used SUV?

While its rivals offer more space for your gear, the Tahoe’s smooth performance and accommodating cabin make it one of the best used large SUVs for your money.

Used 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Performance and Interior

The Chevy Tahoe’s standard V8 engine produces ample power, even when traveling with a full load of passengers and cargo or a trailer in tow. Its 8,500-pound maximum towing capacity is good for the class, though it’s not the highest in the segment. Expect fuel economy that’s similar to other body-on-frame large SUVs: 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg (with rear-wheel drive) or 22 mpg (with four-wheel drive) on the highway. The Tahoe has a calm ride, poised handling, and strong brakes. An available Magnetic Ride Control suspension sharpens body control around turns, but ride quality suffers in models with the 22-inch wheels.

The Tahoe has one of the nicest and quietest interiors in the class. There’s standard seating for eight, and an available first-row bench seat increases that to nine, while available second-row captain’s chairs bring it down to seven. Power-adjustable front seats come standard. Leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, and power-folding second- and third-row seats are available. The seats in first two rows offer great support and ample room, but the third-row seats are only fit for children. There are three complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in all second-row seats and tether-only connections in all third-row seats. The Tahoe has about 95 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, which is less than some other large SUVs.

The Tahoe comes standard with Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD Radio, six speakers, and Chevy’s OnStar emergency notification system. Available features include the MyLink infotainment system, a rear-seat entertainment system, remote start, a navigation system, and a power liftgate. Audio and climate controls are straightforward, and the available MyLink system is easy to use but occasionally responds slowly.

How Safe Is the Tahoe?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2015 Tahoe a four-star overall rating (out of five), which is in line with most other large SUVs

The Tahoe offers a healthy complement of advanced safety features. A rearview camera comes standard. The LT trim adds forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and a safety alert seat that vibrates to signal various safety feature warnings. The Tahoe LTZ comes with blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert, as well as front and rear parking sensors.

Should I Consider Another Used Tahoe?

The 2015 model year marks the beginning of the Tahoe’s fourth generation, which includes the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe. For 2016, Chevy added a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and a customizable gauge cluster. Unless these features are must-haves, you’re better off shopping for a 2015 Tahoe, which will likely cost less.

Which Used Chevrolet Tahoe Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe has three trim levels: LS, LT, and LTZ. Among them, the LTZ trim offers the best blend of premium appointments and driver assistance features. It has perforated leather seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel. You’ll also get blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, parking sensors, a Magnetic Ride Control suspension, and aluminum wheels.

To mitigate some of the risks associated with buying a used car, 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.

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe or 2015 Ford Expedition?

The Ford Expedition is one of the most spacious large SUVs on the market, and like the Tahoe, it has a smooth ride, a powerful engine, and a good number of standard features. Compared to the Tahoe, the Expedition can handle more, with its higher 9,200-pound maximum towing capacity, extra 13.6 cubic feet of cargo space, and class-leading third-row legroom. However, the Expedition has poor maneuverability, low-quality interior materials, and a below-average predicted reliability rating. Unless you need the higher towing capacity and extra space of the Expedition, the Tahoe is the better choice.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe or 2015 GMC Yukon?

Because the GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe are derived from the same platform, they share many of the same traits. Deciding between these SUVs boils down to your personal preferences. While the base Yukon offers the same V8 engine as the Tahoe, the Yukon’s Denali trim has a larger, more powerful V8. Unlike the Tahoe, the Yukon comes standard with an infotainment system, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, and parking sensors. However, these extras come at a price that is typically higher than the Tahoe’s.
