The average weight of a Chevy Tahoe is around 5,500 pounds as of 2014. Chevrolet has produced the Tahoe since 1995 when the Tahoe model name replaced the full-size Chevy Blazer sport utility vehicle. The Chevy Tahoe is very similar to the GMC Yukon in appearance, size, capability and options.
The Cadillac Escalade is also a General Motors vehicle that is much like the Tahoe in dimensions and overall appearance. The Tahoe received the top ranking for the Affordable Large SUV designation according to U.S. News and World Report in 2014. Tahoes were initially available in 2-door and 4-door models, but the 2-door option was discontinued in 1999.
