Drivers who want more room to move choose the Chevy Tahoe’s expansive interior with ample seating for as many as eight while the Ford Explorer provides enough space for just seven adults. The Chevrolet Tahoe provides Aurora and Naperville drivers more room for gear as well with as much as 51.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the rear row laid flat and a maximum of 94.7 cubic feet with both rows folded. The Ford Explorer provides up to 43.9 cubic feet with the third row laid flat and offers a maximum of just 81.7 cubic feet.

In addition to the advanced features like navigation and OnStar, and safety equipment like rearview camera and automatic collision preparation, the Tahoe is equipped with a rear-seat reminder. This new device is activated any time the rear doors are opened within a few minutes of the engine starting. When the driver reaches their destination and turns engine, they receive an audible and visual alert reminding them to check the back seat for small passengers. The Ford Explorer doesn’t offer a rear-seat reminder.
