Whether you choose the Tahoe or Suburban, each engine option is designed to provide ample power while balancing efficiency and capability — ensuring your SUV experience is both thrilling and practical.

Tahoe vs. Suburban Towing

For many SUV owners, towing capacity is a make-or-break feature when selecting their vehicle. Both Chevrolet models assert themselves admirably in this arena — the Tahoe boasts a maximum available trailering capacity of up to 8,400 pounds, while the Suburban will trailer an impressive 8,300 pounds.

Interior and Technology Features

The 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban share many interior and technological features, setting a high standard for comfort, connectivity, and convenience in the full-size SUV category.

  • Infotainment system: Both models come standard with Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 system, which includes an 8-inch touch screen on base models and an upgraded 10.2-inch touch screen on LT trims and above.
  • Digital gauge cluster: A 12-inch digital gauge cluster provides drivers with customizable information at a glance.

These SUVs are designed with a tech-savvy generation in mind, where staying connected and entertained is as important as the journey itself.

Cargo Space

We see a significant divergence between these two models in cargo space. The Suburban’s longer frame directly translates into more storage room: It offers the best-in-class maximum cargo volume at 144.7 cubic feet once all seats are folded down—a clear advantage over the Tahoe’s still considerable but lesser 123 cubic feet maximum capacity.
