2019 Chevrolet Tahoe Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.8

Most critics praise the Chevrolet Tahoe’s nice interior quality, but some bemoan the presence of some low-rent materials. Seating space and comfort is excellent in the first two rows, but the third row is tight and uncomfortable. The Tahoe's cargo space is also below average for the class. However, there are plenty of user-friendly standard features.

  • "Looks good at a glance. You'll find many soft touch points up front, but hard plastic pieces abound and invariably there are some sharp edges." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "The new Tahoe is big, but it's a pussycat from inside its luxurious interior. Visibility is excellent, its steering is light and its cabin is exceptionally quiet. … The materials are overwhelmingly upscale, and the controls are easy to find and figure out." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Inside, handsome colors and soft-touch materials form a thoroughly modern dash and center console." -- Autotrader (2018)

Seating

The Tahoe has standard seating for eight on standard cloth upholstery. A 10-way power-adjustable front seat, a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are also standard. There are several ways to change the seating configuration with options like a front bench seat, second-row bucket seats, and a deleted third row. Seating upgrades include leather upholstery, heated first and second-row seats, 12-way power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, power-release and folding second-row bucket seats, and a power-folding third row.

The Tahoe has up to three complete LATCH connections in its second row, and only tether anchors for all third-row seating positions. The second-row tether anchors are hard to find, and it’s difficult to move your hands around some of the lower anchors. The third-row outboard tether anchors could be confused for other hardware on the back of the seats.

Both the first and second rows of the Tahoe have soft and comfortable seats with plenty of room to stretch out. Conversely, the seats in the last row last row are flat and hard. They’re also short on room, making them better suited to smaller passengers.

  • "The Tahoe has earned its place as a family favorite over the years for the sheer amount of people and gear it can hold. It is also one of the few vehicles that isn't a van that can accommodate up to nine passengers. That configuration, with a 3-across bench in front, is available only on base LS models, though. Most buyers will configure the Tahoe to seat eight or, if opting for buckets in the second row, seven. … Up front, most drivers will find it relatively easy to find a comfortable perch. If you're on the shorter side, we recommend stepping up to at least the LT trim, which has a steering wheel that telescopes as well as tilts, plus power-adjustable pedals." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "This new Tahoe is about as quiet as SUVs get. The first two rows of seats are roomy and comfy, but the same can't be said for the third." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "The Tahoe is a mammoth cruiser, big in all dimensions, and when equipped with the optional 40/20/40 front bench seat, is capable of carrying up to nine passengers. That said, it should be noted that the Tahoe's third-row seat is not as accommodating as some larger SUVs such as the Suburban or Ford Expedition EL." -- Autotrader (2015)

Interior Features

The 2019 Tahoe features an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a six-speaker stereo, USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and HD Radio. Tri-zone automatic climate control, remote start, a 110-volt power outlet, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are also standard

Options include proximity key entry, push-button start, a sunroof, navigation, satellite traffic, a nine- and 10-speaker Bose surround-sound systems, wireless device charging, an 8-inch color driver information display, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. There are also several available advanced safety features, including front parking sensors, a head-up display, a safety alert seat, automatic headlights, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

The MyLink infotainment system earns praise for its smooth operation and user-friendly interface. Physical controls on the dashboard are clearly labeled and easy to reach and use.

  • "Chevy's standard MyLink infotainment system is one of the easiest to use and quicker-responding systems available. With detailed graphics and an intuitive 8-inch touch-screen interface, the system offers onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, voice activation and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. An easily navigated Navigation system is also available. … The large 8-inch touch screen is as easy to use as any smartphone, and we also like how it rises to reveal a hidden compartment." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "… the MyLink color touchscreen is one of the brightest and most user-friendly infotainment systems we've experienced." -- Autotrader (2018)
  • "Straightforward controls are familiar and easily comprehended aside from a few tiny icons that can be hard to decipher at a glance. Instrument panel includes a handy configurable screen, while the MyLink touchscreen system is sound. Audio and climate control buttons and knobs are generously sized." -- Edmunds (2018)

Cargo

The Chevy Tahoe has 15.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind its third row, 51.7 cubic feet with the third row folded down, and 94.7 cubic feet with both back rows folded down. All of those values are among the lowest in the class. The Tahoe's load-in height is high, which makes it hard to lift in heavy cargo. A power tailgate and a hands-free tailgate are optional.

  • "There's even a 5-passenger Tahoe variant in the Custom model, which deletes the small third row and adds a bit more cargo space. Speaking of, the 15.3 cubic feet behind the third row isn't all that much. That is rectified by folding the third row to create 51.70 cubic feet." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The Tahoe's cargo area has a high floor and not much space behind the third row. Handy power seat-folding controls can quickly fold down the third-row seats, but the floor is high for loading. Competitors carry more, handle taller objects and load more easily." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "Less thrilling is the raised cargo floor, designed to accommodate the fold-flat rear seats; it lessens cargo room vertically and increases the lift-over height when loading." -- Autotrader (2018)
