2013 Acura ZDX vs. 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Tahoe than in the Acura ZDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura ZDX.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Tahoe requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura ZDX, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura ZDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Tahoe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura ZDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ZDX is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Tahoe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura ZDX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Drivetrain
The Acura ZDX has much lower torque than the Chevrolet Tahoe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura ZDX has the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Tahoe, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Chevrolet Tahoe is clearly the choice over the Acura ZDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura ZDX has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Acura ZDX seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Tahoe. The Acura ZDX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura ZDX than that of the Chevrolet Tahoe.
