2015 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. 2014 Acura RDX Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Chevrolet Tahoe offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Acura RDX. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RDX.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Tahoe, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura RDX.

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). The Chevrolet Tahoe will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Acura RDX, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Tahoe is much higher than that for the Acura RDX.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Tahoe is much wider than the Acura RDX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Tahoe, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Acura RDX.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Tahoe does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Acura RDX.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Tahoe is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Tahoe has a little more horsepower than the Acura RDX.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Tahoe more than the Acura RDX, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Chevrolet Tahoe, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Acura RDX.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Tahoe is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura RDX.
