Automotive research and valuation company Kelley Blue Book has announced its list of Best Family Cars for 2021, recognizing the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe in the Best Full-Size SUVs for Families category.
“When it comes to buying a car for a new or growing family, parents understandably want assurance that their vehicle has outstanding safety and technology features to help protect their precious cargo,” said senior managing editor for Kelley Blue Book, Matt DeLorenzo. “We also know budget factors are top-of-mind for families, so we place a heavy emphasis on overall value including purchase and ownership costs through Kelley Blue Book’s Fair Purchase Price and 5-Year Cost to Own information.”
Kelley Blue Book looked at a range of criteria when determining its selections. In addition to an emphasis on safety and value, vehicles were evaluated on connectivity, tech features, and driver-assist features, as well as crash-test data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Kelley Blue Book editors were particularly impressed by the 2021 Chevy Tahoe’s passenger and cargo room, as well as its towing abilities, highlighting the new SUV’s versatility – something which “few rivals” can match, according to the editors.
Kelley Blue Book also recognized the 2021 Ford Expedition in the Best Full-Size SUVs for Families category.
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe ushers in a fresh fifth-generation overhaul for the nameplate, with all-new exterior styling, a new interior, and a new fuel-efficient diesel engine option. The latest Chevy Tahoe is equipped with 30 safety and driver assist tech features, including highlights like:
