Two large SUVs from the same brand—at first glance, they may seem virtually indistinguishable. How do the 2020 Tahoe and Suburban differ? For the most part, it comes down to cabin space.
Slide inside and find room for the whole family and more. You can easily handle carpool duty with either of these nine-seater SUVs at your command! While both can accommodate up to nine people, the exact dimensions differ. The longer Suburban has significantly more third-row legroom.
Make your way to the rearmost row in the Suburban, and you’ll find 34.5 inches of legroom available. In the Tahoe, expect 24.8 inches of third-row legroom. The Tahoe’s third row can seat small kids, but if you need that space for adults, the Suburban may be more to your liking.
The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are simply cavernous creations. Folding second- and third-row seats let you configure their cabins to fit as much or as little cargo as you need.
The Tahoe can expand its cargo bay to up to 94.7 cubic feet. Choose the Suburban, and you’ll find some serious space: up to 121.7 cubic feet, to be exact. Those power-fold-flat third-row seats create the perfectly prone floor you need to load and slide the heavy stuff.
Don’t kid yourself: You’ve always wanted a hidden compartment in your SUV. The Tahoe and Suburban will help you realize this dream! The SYNC® 3 infotainment screen slides up to reveal a lockable storage space for your valuables. Stow your smartphone or hide those stolen sapphires—we won’t tell.
Let’s finish strong with a look at those engine specs. In a convenient twist, the 2020 Tahoe and Suburban share powertrains! Both come standard with a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine (355 horsepower). If you prefer, you can equip the available 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 (420 horsepower).
The smaller Tahoe actually has a slight edge when you need to hitch up that family boat. It can tow up to 8,600 pounds when properly equipped. The Suburban, meanwhile, offers a max towing capacity of 8,300 pounds.
When the streets of Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township, PA, turn slippery, the available four-wheel drive (4WD) can keep you balanced in both of these Chevy SUVs.
We hope you found this comparison useful in prioritizing what you need from your next SUV! From a performance standpoint, the 2020 Chevy Suburban and 2020 Chevy Tahoe are virtually identical. The real difference lies inside.
