If you're in the market for a full-size SUV to transport your family, you only need to look at the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe. Wallace Chevrolet Stuart, FL, serving the communities of Port St. Lucie, Palm City, White City and Jupiter, FL, is ready to take you for a test-drive in this striking, versatile SUV that can take you to soccer matches or a romantic dinner for two in style.
Let's see how the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe compares to the GMC Yukon.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
Nine passengers can travel comfortably in the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, and the mechanics are some of the reasons why. Under the hood, you'll find a massive 5.3-liter, V-8 FlexFuel engine with 355hp. Rear-wheel drive is standard, as well as a 6-speed automatic transmission with a tow/haul mode to provide more power to your heavy load. 4WD is available as an option. The GMC Yukon offers the exact same engine and has the same seating capacity of up to 9 passengers.
CHEVY TAHOE VALUE VS GMC YUKON VALUE
The MSRP for the2015 2WD Chevy Tahoe LS starts at $46,300. KBB.com gave the Chevrolet Tahoe its "2015 Best Buy Award" in its class, emphasizing great bang for your buck, and it's easy to see why. Standard features include assist steps, heated power-adjustable folding mirrors, and 18-inch machine-finished aluminum wheels (20-inch on the LTZ), with the ability to roll down the road in another layer of style with optional 22-inch wheels. 3-zone automatic climate control, power door locks and windows, rear park assist, Bluetooth for phone, and a 6 speaker audio system are standard features on the LS model. By contrast, the 2WD GMC Yukon SLE starts at $47,740, almost $1500 more than the Tahoe, with only small differences such as the Yukon's 8-inch standard audio screen vs. the Tahoe's 4.2 inches.
The bottom line is, both built by General Motors, the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon are basically built on the same platform with similar features. Even the exceptional warranty is the same, for bumper-to-bumper coverage, maintenance, powertrain, and roadside assistance. But is a larger screen really worth $1500 more? The clear choice in this comparison is the 2015 Tahoe.
