2014 Chevrolet Tahoe is definitely the last Tahoe of the third generation. This means that the full-size SUV didn’t get many changes since it received a mild facelift back in 2010. In any case, 2014 model still has a role to play even though a new generation 2015 model is already here.
2014 Chevrolet Tahoe review
Tahoe’s 5.3L V8 engine delivers 320 horsepower and 335 lb-ft of torque and comes as both RWD and 4WD model. It comes in three trims: LS, LT and LTZ, all with 6-speed automatic transmission.
On the outside, 2014 Tahoe looks like some dominating figure, with its bold presence highlighted by the powerful split grille and aggressive stance with chrome details all over. Headlights fit the grille perfectly in a symetric look that goes all the way to the back of the vehicle.
On the inside, the most important feature has to be space. There is more than plenty of it, both for passengers and cargo. Tahoe has three rows of seats with seating space for up to nine on LS and up to eight on LT and LTZ trims. It greatly emphasizes on all-season comfort which can be seen in the form of heated and cooled leather-appointed front seats and also a heated steering wheel.
Moreover, the available rear-seat DVD entertainment system offers a wide range of entertainment choices for your rear passengers, and there can be many of them, as we’ve seen. The system includes a DVD player with remote control, an overhead flat-screen monitor, two sets of headphones, audio/video input jacks and rear-seat audio controls. Also, there is a Bose 6-speaker audio system, AM/FM stereo with CD/MP3 player and SiriusXM satellite radio. Safety features like dual-stage frontal, driver and right-front passenger air-bags, rear parking assist, tire pressure monitor system, rearview camera and many more are also included.
As far as fuel efficiency concernes, 2014 Chevy Tahoe goes a solid 21 mpg out on the open road. It is not impressive, but it is better than many competitor’s vehicles of its class.
2014 Chevy Tahoe prices are in range of $43,600 for stock LS model to $56,255 for a stock LTZ trim. Since 2015 model is out and running, and is only $1,000 to $3,000 more expensive than its predecessor, it is hard to decide which of these is a better option. 2014 Tahoe has a stronger engine but also consumes more fuel. 2015 model is redesigned and it is probably best to make that decision based on the looks of these SUV-s as well as their functionality.
2014 Chevrolet Tahoe will surely have something more to say in the market, but for how long, it remains to be seen.
