I was a Ford guy growing up. I owned three total fullsize pickups and SUVs over the past 20 years. All three left me on the side of the road. Then I had three different small-midsize European cars (Volvo, Mercedes, Audi). I liked each of them but I was ready to get back into a taller vehicle and I needed something to tow my Jeep & trailer.
I bought the Tahoe new in last August. I am completely satisfied with it. I get a combined hwy/city 19-20 MPG on average. Not too bad for such a large vehicle.
I was able to get in on a deal with $6k cash back total incentives. My purchase price less TT&L was $32,500. Sure it's an LS but it still has terrific bells and whistles for a base model!
I'm a fan of the fuel economy considering the weight, horsepower, and competition.
The Bluetooth is really handy and I use this all the time.
The iPod usb interface in the center console is genius.
The darn thing is super comfortable. The interior and exterior quality seem to be
Has plenty of giddy-up when you need it and tows very well.
Oil changes and tire rotations are $40 or less at the dealership! This is very nice coming from a European import.
The base model stereo speakers sound a little weak. No biggie cause I'm not a teenager any more.
It would be nice to have HomeLink (garage door opener) with the base model.
Nothing else I can think of... Great vehicle... very happy!
After a short test drive we were sold! so we sold our 2005 Tahoe (older body style) for a new one, after owning our older one for 6 years with no problems, we (Wife and myself) decided it was time for a new one since our 2005 was so reliable.
We noticed how much quieter and smoother the ride was one the 2011 and noticeable 45 hp increase for better towing.
Although the 2011 offers only 3 MPG HWY better we still got our money's worth and filling the empty space in our garage with a small SUV compared to a full size Tahoe with all its features was well worth the sacrifice especially since we drive it locally anyway.
In this price range, there is nothing compared
to the Tahoe!
Quiet ride and interior along with the increase HP increase.
The LS model is the way to go if you don't want the convenience package of the TTZ, but we would rarely need the rear camera and GPS, etc, we were selective and just added the features we use most.
The Tahoe has the best styling of all the SUV's in it's class and timeless body style.
Nothing! We went with the 22" chrome wheels for individual styling, that's about it.
This is my best SUV that I have ever owned.
I have owned a Suburban and two Explorers.
My wife said that it is the most comfortable seat and ride she has been in, much better than the Explorers.
It just handles much better. And I enjoy sitting higher too.
I do think the internal front door components rattle too much when the music is playing, which I will have fixed.
The gas mileage is what it is-16-21 mpg.
The extras are nice options.
Ride, seats, radio options, Bluetooth.
Strenghten internal door components from rattling.
