Three-row SUVs offer the ultimate in passenger space and utility, along with cutting-edge features and amenities. Two popular seven-seater choices include the 2018 Chevy Tahoe, a large SUV, and the Ford Explorer, classed as a midsize. Here’s what you need to know about these best-selling vehicles if you’re shopping for a 2018 SUV.

Performance

  • Tahoe base engine is a 355-horsepower V8 compared with a 290-hp V6 in the Explorer.
  • Tahoe tops out at 420 horses compared to 365 for the Explorer.
  • Tahoe offers available 10-speed automatic transmission, new for 2018 along with the V8.
  • 8,600-pound Tahoe towing capacity compared with 5,000 pounds for the Explorer when properly equipped.

The truck-based Tahoe comes with standard rear-wheel drive, while the Explorer, a crossover, is equipped with front-wheel drive. Both SUVs can be upgraded with four-wheel drive. The Tahoe can also be upgraded with Magnetic Ride Control suspension to smooth out every bump in the road.

Interior Features

  • Standard 8-inch touchscreen in the Tahoe compared with 4.2 inches in the Explorer.
  • Standard Wi-Fi hotspot with 3G LTE in the Tahoe (not available in the Explorer).
  • Safety alert seat that provides reminders of rear seat passengers in the Tahoe.
  • Available wireless charging in the Tahoe.

Both vehicles have comfortable, expansive seats and offer plenty of visibility. The Tahoe is also equipped with stylish, soft-touch materials that are comparable to those offered in a luxury SUV. While the Explorer also offers premium materials like leather and wood, these are relegated to the higher trim levels. Only the Tahoe has standard smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, neither of which are available in the Explorer. In fact, the Tahoe has a long list of exclusive features that make it a great buy for drivers who want the latest and greatest tech.

Interior Space

  • 94.7 cubic feet in the Tahoe compared with 80.7 cubic feet for the Explorer.
  • Seating for 7-9 in the Tahoe, 6-7 in the Explorer.
  • Standard sliding and reclining second row in the Tahoe.

If you truly need room for a crowd (and all their belongings), the Tahoe is the SUV to choose. If properly configured, it can comfortably seat up to nine passengers. The expansive cargo hold makes it an effective hauling machine as well.
