About

My wife's ride. She loves the car's size and high driving position, and that it's virtually impossible for her to get stuck in the snow in it. I like regular cars and, of course, sports cars better, but this is what she wanted. When my first Grand Prix Comp-G was totalled, the Tahoe served as our sole family car and I got my Boxster to replace the Pontiac. Since our kids spend most of the year away at college and rarely go anywhere with us anyhow when they're home, that worked out pretty well. As it is, the two of us used the Tahoe for a couple of vacations where we needed to take more luggage than the Boxster could handle (i.e. more than an overnight bag each!). It IS nice to be able to see over much of the traffic after spending a lot of time in a low car like my Porsche. This is an SUV with serious scoot under the hood. The big 6.2L V-8 sure gets the job done, but the gas mileage SUCKS! The best tank we've ever gotten out of the thing was 17.5 mpg. The ride is Cadillac soft, but you'd never mistake it for a sport sedan in the handling department.

6.2 liter, 380 h.p. V-8
6 speed automatic transmission
