The best SUV

2010 Chevrolet Tahoe Arnaldo Borrero-Rivera - Colorado Springs, CO 07/25/2015

This is my second Tahoe, I have own other makes of SUVs and this Tahoe are by far the best. Other than some minor issues with door actuators and power side mirrors most visits to the dealership have been for regular maintenance.Powerful engine, great to tackle winter snow months in Colorado with the 4X4. Gas consumption, although best in class, is a little high specially if you do your driving mainly within the city, however the flex fuel option allow you to use the cheap gas.

Love our Tahoe!

2010 Chevrolet Tahoe Overview

For those searching for a roomy and rugged full-size used SUV, the Chevrolet Tahoe is worth considering. This is a vehicle that is large enough for the family and sturdy enough to go down the road less traveled. The 2010 model is a third-generation Tahoe, with the first making its debut in 1995. It is a cousin to the GMC Yukon, which is closely related to the Cadillac Escalade. The seven-passenger Tahoe is a substantial vehicle that is shorter than the nine-passenger Chevy Suburban.

2010 Chevrolet Tahoe History

The 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe traces its lineage back to the Chevy Blazer, when the Blazer was redesigned and renamed in 1995. It derived its name from the Lake Tahoe area that borders California and Nevada. It has historically received high marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

  • The 1995 model was originally built on the Chevy Silverado's full-size pickup truck chassis.
  • In 1996 it was named Motor Trend's Truck of the Year.
  • Sales reached their peak in 2002 when over 286,000 Tahoes were sold in the United States.
  • A 2007 Tahoe was featured as part of a team contest in a 2006 television episode of The Apprentice.
  • The first hybrid electric Tahoe debuted with the 2008 model.

How It Drives

Considering its size, the 2010 Tahoe offers a smooth and responsive drive, more so than previous editions. It is also surprisingly quiet, even at higher speeds. It has an independent front suspension and handles bumps in the road well, especially for such a large vehicle. Keep in mind the 2010 Tahoe came with 17-inch wheels as standard, and those provide a smoother ride than the larger 18- and 20-inch options. This year's Tahoe is over six feet tall and about six and a half feet wide, so don't have expectations that it will ride like a sedan.

Used 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe Value

The Chevy Tahoe has been so popular because it provides great value and versatility. It has been the best-selling SUV for over a decade largely due to its ability to provide the roominess and amenities of a large, luxury vehicle, but can also carry the cargo of a pickup. The 2010 model even comes in a hybrid edition that takes in-city mileage to the mid-20's. It is also the right vehicle for those who have a boat or travel trailer with an 8,500-pound towing capacity. While not known for its fuel efficiency, the 2010 Tahoe does feature an Active Fuel Management System, which switches from eight cylinders to four when full power isn't needed. All of this combines to make a used 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe a terrific value for those looking for a full-size SUV.

Design & Performance

The design and performance of the 2010 Tahoe compares favorably to competitors like the Ford Expedition and the Toyota Sequoia. Although slightly conservative, the exterior of the 2010 Tahoe communicates its strength well. Its smooth, rounded edges help it cut through the air a bit better, reducing drag and even improving mileage a bit. While it is "smoother," its muscular stance, wide body, and flared wheel wells exude strength. Large windows remind you that yes, this is a full-size SUV. When looking at used 2010 Tahoes, it is helpful to note there are four trim levels:

  • LS
  • LT
  • LTZ
  • Hybrid

Down the line each level increases the available amenities, along with the list price. The LT Editions are subdivided into XF, LT1, LT2, and LT3. The 2010 models went through a refresh that included updated door trim and side torso airbags.

Powertrain & Engine

Chevy simplified engine options for the 2010 Tahoe, with consumers choosing between either an aluminum or iron 5.3L V8 flex-fuel engine. The hybrid edition includes a 6L V6 power plant. The 5.3L engines produce 320 horsepower at 5200 rpm. The Tahoe's powerful engines are teamed with a smooth shifting, six-speed automatic transmission with sufficient strength to easily tow heavy loads.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2010 Tahoe features exterior styling that is a bit subtle about being a full-size SUV. It is attractive and spacious with appearing to "brag" about being an SUV. Along with its versatility, many are sold on the Tahoe's interior which offers excellent head, leg, and shoulder room. Depending on the trim level selected, Tahoes generally come well-appointed with a variety of amenities. It is an excellent vehicle for both work and family, and is particularly comfortable for long road trips.

Owners appreciate the Tahoe for its:

  • Large cargo capacity
  • Towing strength
  • Comfort
  • Safety

For work or play, the 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe is up to the task. For those researching used full-sized SUVs, it is a "must-compare" type of vehicle.
