The Tahoe has a 116-inches long wheelbase. Its cabin offers a relief from all the straight, hard edges that define the exterior. Its interior is soothingly curved and smooth, and is equipped with an 8-inch LCD touch screen centerpiece, as well as more overt car luxury influences than ever. In spite of its truck-type construction and large size, the 2016 Chevy Tahoe benefits from certain technologies that minimize the cumbersome feel that is common in full-size SUVs. The truck’s body is made using a significant percentage of high-strength steel. Its electric power steering creates a light steering feel while saving fuel.

The truck’s standard suspension is a leaf-spring, live axle rear. It offers General Motors’ Magnetic Ride Control that utilizes shocks full of magnetically charged fluid capable of changing the damping rates after every few milliseconds.

All in all, simple physics create less than stellar agility and noticeable body lean.
