2013 Chevrolet Tahoe Overview

There’s no getting around the hugeness of the 2013 Chevy Tahoe. With a curb weight north of 5,500 pounds and almost seventeen feet of overall length, the Tahoe is one of the largest vehicles on the road.

The 2013 Tahoe is adorned with blocky, square body panels and not a lot of definition. It also features a Camaro-esque front grill, huge halogen headlights with a daytime running feature, and power adjustable mirrors. Also standard are roof racks, entrance steps, easy-access liftgate, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Options include huge 22-inch chrome wheels, chrome entrance steps, and underbody panels to prevent debris from hitching a ride.

The interior of the 2013 Tahoe is classic Chevy - big. Every knob is oversized, the seats are massive buckets, and seating capacity is nine. Cloth seats with power adjustment are standard, but leather is an option. In addition, as the trim level gets more luxurious, the seating capacity declines – the top-of-the-range model only seats seven. Air conditioning is standard on every Tahoe, with more expensive trims getting automatic climate control. Also standard is Bluetooth connectivity, AM/FM stereo with CD player, and split-folding seats. Options are extensive and include navigation, Bose audio system, rear captain’s chairs, parking sensors, and power-adjustable pedals.

The mechanics within the 2013 Chevy Tahoe are nothing new but work well together. Every Tahoe gets a 320-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 with 335 pounds-feet of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Predictably, fuel economy isn’t great (opting for a big SUV does have its compromises) at 15/21 mpg city/highway. The Tahoe does excel however when it comes to mechanical options. Any Tahoe can be had with 4WD, if desired. There’s also an off-road suspension package that gives the Tahoe what it needs to conquer the forests of Wales: a 4X4 transfer box, under-body skid plates, and fancy mono-tube shock absorbers that respond much faster than the standard units.

In the government’s testing of the 2013 Tahoe, the big Chevy scored very well in front and side impacts, but lacked the rollover resistance to classify it as a five-star vehicle. Standard features include six airbags, disc brakes with ABS, a roll-mitigation system, and traction control. Additionally, the 2013 Tahoe gets OnStar, a system that automatically notifies authorities if a crash occurs.

With plenty of seating capacity and a penchant for off-road driving, the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe is a great people/cargo hauler over rough and paved terrain.
