Looking at buying a Tahoe



I am trying to decide between a 2014 and 2015. From my initial research it looks like I could save about $5k by going with the '14. I don't really like buying an "old" body style however. So I will probably end up going the '15 route.

Also, don't know if I can justify the $10k or so to move up from the LT to LTZ.

Anyone have any tips (not general car buying tips) on purchasing a Tahoe? What features are worth it and which aren't?

the 15's are so new right now, it would probably be advisable to wait a little while until they start applying some rebates


if you could even wait until 2016's were available, it'd be the best, but thats unlikely

I'm still trying to get use to the new body style. I like the old better than the new.

If you really care about money you wouldn't be buying a new SUV so go with the 2015 gmc Yukon. Or the Escalade if you are a true playa.

i don't think he was asking for personal finance decisions, so you don't have to judge him

Agree. I really like the new body styles, but $75K for LTZ is ridic.

I wasn't judging just pointing out that he is being penny wise and pound foolish. He's the one who brought up the economic component of the decision.

Get a new Yukon instead. The Tahoe is ugly IMO, but the new GMC looks very nice.

ETA: Buy this one.

He just wants the best value and a new vehicle

He doesn't want to drive a 2009 Camry because it's a better decision

That one does seem like a decent deal compared to MSRP

I didn't think you'd be able to get 10K off this soon


I'm on the fence about the Yukon though, I've always liked the Sierra over silverado, but I'm opposite on the Tahoe/Yukon

Wife has a 13 bought about a year ago, neither of us like the new body and would have probably went with something else if it was our only choice.

LTZ is personal preference and only you can decide if it's worth the cost difference.
