Compare Chevy SUVs With Third-Row Seating

Drivers looking for a third-row seating SUV typically have passenger and cargo room as a priority. Here's a closer look at the lineup's specs and measurements.

The Chevy Traverse

The Chevy Traverse

The most agile of all Chevy three-row SUVs, the Traverse balances immense spaciousness with a street-ready size. It also balances vigorous power with fuel-sipping efficiency.

Performance Specs

As the smallest sibling among Chevy three-row SUVs, the Traverse is the most efficient in the family. Specifically, a new three-row Chevy Traverse can deliver an EPA-estimated 18/27 MPG (City/Highway),1 which is a very impressive figure for the three-row midsize SUV segment. But more impressively, it matches that efficiency with powerful yet smooth performance.

The Traverse has a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine with 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. This power gets you up to speed with effortless acceleration and allows you to tow up to 5,000 pounds4 with your Chevy Traverse. A nine-speed automatic transmission and FWD come standard; AWD is available.

Passenger & Cargo Space

A Chevy Traverse with third-row seats will be able to fit up to eight occupants with spacious accommodations, offering you the following passenger and cargo dimensions:

  • Legroom (first/second/third row - inches): 41.01 / 38.41 / 33.48
  • Headroom (first/second/third row - inches): 42.80 / 40.02 / 38.21
  • Shoulder room (first/second/third row - inches): 61.91 / 62.16 / 57.50
  • Cargo room (Behind third/second/first row - cubic feet) 23.00 / 57.80 / 98.20
The Chevy Tahoe

The Chevy Tahoe

The Tahoe is a classic name among SUVs that stands for big passenger accommodations and bigger power. How big are the specs behind the Chevy Tahoe? Let's take a look.

Performance Specs

The Tahoe is the first of three Chevy three-row SUVs to offer standard V-8 power. Specifically, it has a 5.3-liter V-8 with 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. However, a 6.2-liter V-8 and a 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel are available; both make 460 pound-feet of torque.

The 2023 Chevy Tahoe can deliver an EPA-estimated 15/20 MPG (city/highway)2 with its standard 5.3-liter V-8 engine. Plus, it can tow up to 8,400 pounds4 to conquer almost any family hauling task. A 10-speed automatic transmission and RWD come standard; 4WD is available.

Passenger & Cargo Space

As a result of its rugged build and full-size body, the Tahoe steps up the space that Chevy three-row SUVs can offer, providing the following dimensions:

  • Legroom (first/second/third row - inches): 44.50 / 42.00 / 34.90
  • Headroom (first/second/third row - inches): 42.30 / 38.90 / 38.20
  • Shoulder room (first/second/third row - inches): 66.00 / 64.80 / 61.70
  • Cargo room (Behind third/second/first row - cubic feet) 25.50 / 72.60 / 122.90
The Chevy Suburban

The Chevy Suburban

The longest-running automotive nameplate in history, the Suburban is the biggest of all Chevy three-row SUVs. Let's jump inside and take a closer look at this family icon.

Performance Specs

The Chevy Suburban completes the family of Chevy three-row SUVs by acting as a bigger sibling to the Tahoe. It offers the same three engines: A standard 5.3-liter V-8, an available 6.2-liter V-8, and a 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel. Engine outputs are the same as in the Tahoe, too.

The Suburban has a maximum towing capacity of 8,300 pounds4 and up to an EPA-estimated 15/19 MPG (City/Highway).3 As with the Tahoe, a 10-speed automatic transmission and RWD are standard, and 4WD is available.

Passenger & Cargo Space

The Chevy Suburban takes its place over the Tahoe with unparalleled interior room, namely a massive cargo-space increase. As the only nine-seat SUV from Chevy, the Suburban provides:

  • Legroom (first/second/third row - inches): 44.50 / 42.00 / 36.70
