2014 Chevy Tahoe Overview on the News Wheel

The 2014 Chevy Tahoe offers a few changes from the past year.

What’s New for the 2014 Chevy Tahoe

Because a new generation of the full-size SUV is expected to launch in the 2015 model year, there aren’t many changes to the 2014 Chevy Tahoe with the exception of a few new standard features, like power-adjustable pedals, remote ignition, a rearview camera, and rear parking sensors.

2014 Chevy Tahoe Exterior

There’s no denying the traditional full-size SUV styling of the 2014 Tahoe. With a blunt nose and strong, muscular bodylines, the Tahoe is heavy-duty all the way, creating a workhorse façade that would be at home towing multiple passengers, boats and campers through all weather. There isn’t any excess flash to the exterior, but that’s what makes it a Tahoe.

2014 Chevy Tahoe Performance

While there’s only one engine option for the 2014 Tahoe with a 5.3-liter V8 churning out 320 horsepower and 335 lb-ft of torque, there is a choice of two-wheel or four-wheel-drive. With this powertrain, it takes the 2014 Tahoe about 8.5 seconds to reach 60 mph, pretty average for a full-size SUV, but it can also tow up to 8,500 pounds.

2014 Chevy Tahoe Efficiency

Like any other full-size SUV, the 2014 Tahoe isn’t going to wow when it comes to fuel economy, getting an EPA-estimated 17 mpg combined.

2014 Chevy Tahoe Interior

The interior of the 2014 Tahoe is very no-nonsense, reflecting the workhorse exterior with simple gauges in a straightforward cluster, a simple dash layout, and limited Bluetooth connection that only allows the driver to make phone calls. It lacks the flat-folding third-row seat of its rivals, but instead has wide, comfortable seats to fit as many as nine passengers.

2014 Chevy Tahoe Safety

According to government crash safety tests, the Tahoe merits four out of five stars in safety with five starts for overall frontal-impact crash protection and overall side-impact crash protection. New standard safety technology, such as rear parking sensors and a rearview camera, add to the sense of security for Tahoe drivers everywhere.
