This is a definite improvement over the
older generation Tahoe in areas of
power, roominess and technology. It
drives solidly (even off-road) and
doesn't seem as mammoth as the
Expedition. However, the transmission
seems to be slipping occasionally and I
still have yet to reach the EPA gas
mileage estimates, averaging 12-14 MPG
in 60% city/40% highway driving (EPA
estimates indicate 14 City/17 Highway).
Still, it’s not as thirsty as the
Expedition and what you’d expect from a
mid-sized V8 moving 5000+ lbs. around.
The weatherstripping and interior trim
has dislodged itself in a few select
spots. Besides a few weaknesses,
I’m happy with my Tahoe.
Tow/haul feature of transmission, 3 row
seating, rear HVAC.
