Ruggedness is the main design choice when it comes to SUVs, but the Tahoe is different. It’s by no means a weak looking vehicle, but the bold and in-your-face design found on vehicles like the Durango or Suburban isn’t present. Instead, you are left with a vehicle that looks masculine thanks to it’s strong and sophisticated demeanor — which is something the other SUVs are lacking.
The front fascia is still wide and tall, and the Chevy logo is situated in the center of the signature split-grille design. The headlights are just as tall and wide as the front-end, and have a cluster of smaller LED lights that run directly through the center of the headlights and foglights. Chrome trim runs around the lights and grille, which gives the front-end a hint of boldness. The hood is also wide and powerful, and sweeps back up onto the windshield. That windshield then gives way to a flat and square roof, where aerodynamics and practicality are favored as opposed to style. The sides are left relatively simple, the only obvious design being a chiseled line that runs from the front tire towards the back tire. It then cuts upward at a steep angle on the other side of the wheel well, and it runs up towards the taillight.
Overall, the entire design itself is tall, wide, and strong. It still has the traditional rectangular SUV shape, but the bulges and other exterior design features that make other SUVs so much bolder aren’t present. This creates a refreshing design, one where the strength of the Tahoe is provided by it’s simplistic nature and naturally large size.
