2022 Chevrolet Tahoe vs 2022 Wagoneer

When you have a growing family, you need a vehicle that will grow with them. After all, you need space to accommodate car seats, sports equipment, and loads of luggage when you go on family road trips. The solution? A full-size SUV with three rows of seats and plenty of cargo storage. 

So how do you decide which full-size SUV you should buy? Let’s take a look at two popular options, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2022 Wagoneer, to see which one is right for you. 


When it comes to head-turning style, the new 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2022 Wagoneer hold nothing back. These full-size SUVs make their grand entrance with sculpted lines, chiseled contours, and wide stances. The Tahoe is paired with a bold dual-port grille that’s emblazoned with Chevy’s iconic bow tie logo, while the Wagoneer sports a classic seven-slot grille. 

Both of these full-size SUVs are available with a hands-free power liftgate that opens when you kick your foot below the rear bumper. They also feature power-retractable assist steps that descend to give you a boost into the cabin. You’ll also find LED headlights, roof racks with side rails, and heated side-view mirrors on each vehicle.

The biggest differences between these two are the number of cosmetic options available. The new 2022 Chevy Tahoe features 10 colors to choose from, while the Wagoneer only has seven color options. The new Tahoe also boasts 15 wheel styles in sizes ranging from 18 to 22 inches, while the Wagoneer once again lags behind with only four roller styles to pick from.
