2023 Chevrolet Tahoe Interior and Cargo

Chevrolet Tahoe Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 Tahoe Interior

Climb aboard the new Tahoe, and the immediate impression is one of spaciousness. Compared with older Chevy Tahoe reviews, this is most notable in the rearmost third row, where Chevrolet has managed to free up ten inches of additional legroom. The interior design itself isn't mind-blowing, with a rather plain look to the cockpit area, and there are lots of buttons and switches scattered around; notably, the controls to the left of the steering wheel aren't easy to see. Another oddity is the motorized sliding center console, which seems like a bit of a gimmick but offers useful practicality. Still, the touchscreen interface is clear and easy to get to grips with, while the base model comes with features like a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, power-adjustable front seats, remote start, and tri-zone climate control. Further up in the range, you get access to an HD surround-view camera system displaying 360-degree images of the Tahoe's surroundings, as well as a large 15-inch head-up display.

Seating and Interior Space

Any way you want it, that's the way Chevy will sell it with regards to seats. Depending on how it's equipped, the Tahoe can seat seven, eight, or nine passengers with varying levels of comfort. Only the base LS trim offers nine seats with three-person benches in all three rows. Sitting in the middle of the front seat isn't exactly comfortable, which is why most Tahoes will ship with a center console up front. The eight-seater Tahoe features a bench in the second and third rows, while the seven-seat variant offers captain's chairs in the second row. The latter is the most comfortable configuration but lacks the ability to carry an eighth passenger in a pinch.

Legroom in the second row is a generous 42 inches, a three-inch increase over the previous generation. But legroom in the third row sees the most noticeable improvement to 34.9 inches, a gain of 10.1 inches. Buyers who want their rear occupants to have even more space will want to opt for the Tahoe's stretched sibling, the Suburban. We will note that hopping into the third row requires the second row to fold and lift forward, which would be impossible with a car seat installed; an ergonomic oversight in our eyes.

Interior Colors and Materials

At the entry-level, the Tahoe comes with cloth seats in either Jet Black or with a Gideon/Very Dark Atmosphere color scheme. A wrapped steering wheel is standard. The LT and Z71 have leather upholstery in the same colors. The sporty RST gets a Jet Black/Victory Red color scheme with perforated leather trim. A more luxurious offering, the Premier, has perforated leather in either Jet Black or a Jet Black/Maple Sugar color combination. Finally, the High Country has either Jet Black or Jet Black/Mocha perforated leather. In all trims with leather upholstery, genuine hide is applied to the first two seating rows only.

2023 Tahoe Trunk and Cargo Space

With all seats upright, there is a roomy 25.5 cubic feet of space, which is enough to accommodate six carry-on suitcases. With the third row folded, cargo space swells to a spacious 72.6 cubes and, with both the rear rows folded flat, there is a giant 122.9 cubes. The base model has a manually-folding second and third row, both of which have a 60/40 split. Further up in the range, a power release for the second row and a power-folding third row make it easier to free up space for larger items. Most derivatives enjoy a power liftgate with hands-free access. In terms of load-lugging, the Tahoe has more space behind its third row than the Ford Expedition which only offers 20.3 cubes.

Both the driver and front-seat passenger have access to their own cupholders, along with a center console bin that is large and includes a removable tray. There are well-sized door pockets in the first two rows and those in front are tiered for even more versatility. There are more cupholders at the back along with seatback pockets on the front seats. If you must, you can spec a power-sliding center console. Although we feel the armrest could just slide manually, we found plenty of utility in this feature, including the ability to place a large bag next to the seat. In its rearmost position, the center console becomes more useful for rear occupants.

2023 Tahoe Infotainment and Features


On the base LS, the Tahoe comes with a fair number of conveniences. Both front seats are power-adjustable - ten-way for the driver and eight-way for the passenger - but they aren't heated. This model also enjoys a 12-volt power outlet in front, two 120-volt power outlets, a 4.2-inch driver's information display, an rearview camera, keyless open/start, cruise control, and tri-zone climate control. Front and rear parking sensors, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warning, Buckle to Drive, a teen-driver function, and forward-collision alert are standard, but you'll have to pay extra for most other driver-assist technologies.

By moving up the trim ladder and/or adding optional packages, you can equip features like a heated steering wheel, heated seats in the front two rows, and ventilated front seats. An expansive 15-inch color head-up display makes it easier to keep your eyes on the road while accessing vital vehicle information. Other items that can be specified include a surround-view camera system, blind-spot monitoring, and power-folding third-row seats. A panoramic power sunroof is available, as is a digital rearview mirror with a camera washer, and an integrated trailer-brake controller.


General Motors has made huge strides in its infotainment technology, and the Tahoe is no exception. All trim levels except the LS include a 10-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster for the driver. The base car gets an eight-inch touchscreen and analog gauges with a 4.2-inch driver-info display. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six USB ports, SiriusXM, Bluetooth audio streaming, and voice commands come standard. Six speakers are standard on the LS, but two Bose systems are available. The nine-speaker option is standard on the LT and RST, while the 10-speaker CenterPoint sound system is standard on the upper pair of trims. We found the Tahoe's infotainment to be intuitive and unobtrusive, with clear graphics and a simple layout.
