While crossovers have dominated new vehicle sales in recent years, some new car shoppers know these small, car-chassis-based vehicles still won’t do the towing and hauling work necessary for their daily lives and/or their weekend adventures. For that reason, capable full-size SUVs, like the 2016 Toyota Sequoia and the 2016 Chevy Tahoe, continue to bring in sales. A full features comparison of these segment-leaders follows.
The 2016 Chevy Tahoe is one of the most trusted brands in the class, with a standard 5.3-liter V-8 engine, standard, and available nine-passenger seating. The 355-hp powertrain is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive on the entry-level Tahoe LS. Exterior standard features include: assist steps, heated power mirrors, roof-mounted luggage rack side rails, 18-inch blackwall tires, a full-size spare tire, a manual rear liftgate and trailering equipment, including a trailer brake controller and the Z85 Premium Smooth Ride Suspension Package with air leveler. Additional performance-enhancing features are available on the higher trims, LT and LTZ.
