Price of the Chevrolet Tahoe: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20084dr SUV 320-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic RWD
The incentives drove down the purchase price condsiderably.
20074dr SUV 320-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic RWD
there is a lot of wiggle room, catch the dealer at the right time and you will get a great deal
20034dr SUV 285-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic RWD
Better deals on a used Tahoe.
Price of the Chevrolet Tahoe: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20074dr SUV 320-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
The Tahoe is simply priced $10,000+ more than the Aspen, yet I believe I would find both as useful and enjoyable as the other.
20054dr SUV, ext. 295-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
With a sticker price of $45K, the price for this or any vehicle that can act as a tow vehicle may be beyond the reach of most and especially the large family for which the vehicle would be most functional.

With the incentives, buying this SUV felt like I was getting a huge bargain. By my 5th year of ownership, I felt like I got ripped off based on the cost to maintain this vehicle.
