New Chevrolet Tahoe near Lafayette

The 2018 Chevy Tahoe

So, you're looking for a new SUV. Living here in the great state of Louisiana, an SUV is almost a necessity to fulfill the needs of a family's lifestyle out here. But the question is, which SUV? Here at Ray Chevrolet, we maintain a well-stocked inventory of new and used SUVs in a variety of models and trims including the Chevy Tahoe. Our mighty, full-size SUV has the space, the power and the overall capabilities you expect out of any SUV while boasting the comfortable performance expected of a Chevy.

The Chevy Tahoe is available in series of trims that offer different levels of Chevy performance and comfort to better fit the specific needs and desires of your lifestyle. These include the Chevy Tahoe LS, the Chevy Tahoe LT, and the Chevy Tahoe Premier.

Under the hood, this vehicle offers two different engine options: The 5.3-liter EcoT3c3 V8 Engine, and the 6.2-liter Ecotec3 V8 engine. These options give the Chevy Tahoe 355 horsepower with 383 pound-feet of torque, and a maximum fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon on the highway. All three Tahoe trims are also available in both two-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive systems.

Inside, this family behemoth seats up to seven people comfortably with plenty of cargo space left over, and plenty of more cargo space available with collapsible second and third-row seating; up to 94.7 cubic feet of available storage to be exact. People-wise, the cabin can hold all seven in available leather-upholstered seats and come with convenience and entertainment features like a Chevrolet MyLink® infotainment system with amenities like touch screen displays, Bluetooth®, smartphone connectivity, available navigation, and available OnStar® Guidance features.

Safety-Wise, the massive SUV comes with a plethora of airbags and child safety systems, as well as several driver-assist features to keep you safe at all points on the road. Those driver-assist features include Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Front and Rear Park Assist and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.

The Difference Between the Chevy Tahoe and the Chevy Traverse

Now, as we said earlier, here at Ray Chevrolet, we don't just limit our inventory to the Chevy Tahoe. We maintain a diverse array of SUVs in a variety of sizes and styles. Now, to help save you time in your search, we've taken two of our SUVs, the Tahoe and the Traverse and put them side by side to show you what sets these two vehicles apart from each other. Beyond the obvious exterior style differences, the two biggest differences between these vehicles are their performance and interior levels.


Under the hood, the Tahoe's 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 packs more horsepower than the Traverse's 3.6-liter V6. But the Traverse's smaller engine produces a better fuel economy than the Tahoe's V8. The Tahoe also comes in four-wheel drive with a six-speed automatic transmission with overdrive while the Traverse comes with all-wheel drive and an automatic nine-speed transmission.

Interior Space

Space is a big aspect of SUVs, and what sets these two vehicles apart. While both of these vehicles host three rows of seats, the Tahoe is the larger of the two and offers more passenger and cargo space compared to the Traverse. But even though the Chevy Traverse is the smaller option, its interior can focus more on style rather than utility. The Traverse's interior includes standard features like moonroof and leather-upholstered seats. Both vehicles also come with a Chevrolet MyLink® Infotainment system and available OnStar® Guidance plans.
