Having just driven the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, we can say without a doubt that the latest generation of General Motors' full-size SUVs has raised the bar in comfort and refinement for the class. And when you're talking about the full-size SUV class, GM dominates it with a commanding combined 70-percent-plus market share. Although a $1295 price increase may seem substantial, we can say the premium is well-justified. The base prices for the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are now $45,890 and $48,890, respectively, for the base-level LS 2WD trim. Prices include $995 destination charge.
Moving up to more opulent trim levels raises the entry price substantially. Four-wheel drive on either model is a $3000 upgrade. If you want to get into the topline LTZ trim level, be prepared to shell out a minimum of $59,995 for a 2WD Tahoe and up to $65,695 for a 4WD Suburban. All 2015 Tahoe and Suburban models are powered by the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 producing 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic. The 6.2-liter V-8 is exclusive to the GMC Yukon Denali trim, for now. There exists the possibility of a High Country trim level for the Tahoe or Suburban, which would likely bring the 6.2-liter engine as at least an option. But for the time being, if you want the big engine, you're limited to GMC or the Cadillac Escalade.
