Since SUVs are well on their way to making up about half of all American car sales, there’s a good chance that you’ve already thought about buying one for yourself.
You’re drawn to SUVs because they offer much more cargo and seating space, they make you feel safer out on the road, and they often have better overall gas mileage than smaller cars.
However, with so many options out there, choosing the right make and model can definitely feel like a challenge.
You’ve heard about the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe, and it’s certainly an option you’re considering. You’d like to learn more about its engine, interior, luxury editions, and safety features before you make your final decision.
This post is here to help.
Read on to learn everything you need to know about the new Tahoe, including where you can go to test drive and purchase one.
The 2019 New Chevy Tahoe: The Basics
If you’ve always wanted a Chevrolet SUV, industry experts agree that the 2019 Tahoe is an excellent option.
J.D. Power named it the Highest Initial Quality large SUV in 2019, and Kelley Blue Book named it the Best Full-Size SUV/Crossover model of 2019.
At 22 miles per gallon on the highway, it also offers best-in-class V8 highway fuel economy levels. With up to 420 horsepower, a 5.3L V8 engine, and a towing capability of up to 8,600 pounds, it’s not hard to see why this car has become so popular. The 2019 Tahoe has a turning diameter of 39, a 6-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive, and gives you ten different exterior color options to choose from.
It also comes with a 36,000-mile basic warranty and a 60,000-mile powertrain warranty, meaning you can feel good about your investment.
The 2019 Tahoe’s Interior
The Tahoe is designed to comfortably fit anywhere from five to nine passengers. If you’re looking to save a bit of cash and want to prioritize cargo space, the base model does allow you to eliminate the third bench seat row entirely.
For those with children, the second row contains three complete car seat connections, while the third-row seats offer top tether anchors underneath a flap of fabric.
In terms of overall cargo space, if you have the third-row bench up, you’ll get about 15.3 cubic cargo space. If you fold down the third-row seats, the amount of space extends to 51.7 cubic feet. Folding down both the second and third rows of seating gives you about 95 cubic feet of cargo space.
The interior contains 7 total USB ports, a WiFi connection, a three-prong outlet, and a wireless charging station.
The dashboard comes complete with an 8-inch touch screen that connects to your phone, a lockable storage space, and a completely customizable driver information control panel.
We especially love that the model comes with triple-sealed, acoustic-laminated inlaid doors and windshields to keep outdoor noise to a minimum.
Safety Features of the Chevrolet Tahoe
The average person experiences four car crashes in their lifetime, but the Chevy Tahoe is designed to help you get that number down.
The model’s forward collision alert system will send out an alert when the car in front of you slows down suddenly. The programmable distance indicator lets you select how far the car in front of you needs to be for you to receive an alert.
It also comes with a safety alert seat option, which means that instead of using an audible beep, the alarm will vibrate your seat cushions to warn you of potential trouble.
It also comes with low speed forward automatic braking. This means that whenever you’re driving under 50 mph and get a bit too close to the car in front of you, your car will brake automatically.
It also offers front pedestrian braking, adaptive cruise control, a rear vision camera, and HD surround vision (especially helpful when you’re pulling in or out of a parking space.)
Customizing and Upgrading Your 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe

The Premier Plus Edition gives you a stunning two-tone black and mahogany leather interior with heated seats, a polished exhaust tip, and cross roof rails. It also comes with retractable power assist, 12-spoke 22″ allow wheels, and a 6.2L V8 engine.
