Was just in Dallas for the last week and we had a 2013 Tahoe as one of our rentals. It had the most awful tires in existence on it (there's a separate thread about that) so I had to be cognizant not to factor their performance into my evaluation of the vehicle. 1. Fit and finish. This was generally quite good. Panel alignment was excellent, paint quality was also very good. Interior trim fit well with no odd gaps or squeaks/rattles. The seats were comfortable (heated/cooled) and the materials selection was quite good. GM has improved here IMHO. My biggest gripe was with the button controls for temp/fan. Both of which had their faces worn so that the symbols on them were indiscernible. In a vehicle this age with its mileage, this should not have happened. 2. Gauges/Electronics The gauges cluster was well laid-out and not gaudy like the Cruze or Equinox, which I find "over the top". The Navigation worked well and the stereo had reasonably good sound quality. The rear controls for the radio and HVAC were not overly complicated, though they could be improved. However, they were functional and operated as intended. The wheel-mounted controls were easy to familiarize yourself with and of good size. 3. Ride/Performance The vehicle was well sprung/dampened and seemed to handle well. This couldn't be tested too far because of the horrific rubber it was riding on, which also contributed negatively to cabin noise. I do not fault the vehicle for this which I would say had cabin isolation that was "quite good". The engine, which was the 5.3L, did not feel as spirited as I expected it to be. I posit the 6.0L would have been much better. The 5.0L in my buddy's 2013 F-150 feels a lot stronger despite sporting a higher curb weight. The transmission programming was decent. Typical GM, you could feel it pull the power for the up-shifts. Not a negative, just noticeable if you are looking for it. Otherwise the shifts seemed precise and reasonable firm and generally the characteristics of the transmission suited the vehicle quite well. It didn't seem to be easily confused either, which was a plus, as this was something we've noticed with the 6spd in certain conditions with my buddy's F-150. I'd place it somewhere between the F-150's 6spd and the NAG1 in the Charger, which is currently my benchmark for automatic performance excellence. 4. Final notes Overall, I was quite satisfied with the Tahoe. I would have been interested to see how it rode with a better tire under it like an LTX M/S2, as I would suspect the ride would have been smoother, quieter and handling testing could have been pushed much further. I would rent another one.
