Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.

Vehicle Overview Chevrolet's full-size Tahoe sport utility vehicle will be available with a two-mode hybrid powertrain for 2008. GM says combined fuel economy savings are expected to be 25 percent. Pricing information has not been released.
Developed jointly by BMW, DaimlerChrysler and GM, the hybrid system can team with both gasoline and diesel engines.
Exterior Compared to the regular Tahoe, the hybrid's distinguishing characteristics are minor. The 2008 Tahoe Hybrid rides 1 centimeter lower to the ground, which enhances the SUV's aerodynamics. Other modifications designed to help the Tahoe Hybrid slip more easily through the atmosphere include a revised D-pillar and flared ends for the running boards. The front fascia has a larger air intake.
The hood and liftgate are made of aluminum to save weight, and the wheels are fitted with low-rolling-resistance tires. Hybrid badges are on the C-pillars, liftgate and trailer hitch cover.
Under the Hood The two-mode hybrid powertrain teams with a V-8 engine that has GM's Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation technology. The first mode, which allows the Tahoe Hybrid to move on just electric power, just engine power or a combination of the two, is designed for city and light-load driving. The second, mostly highway mode provides electric-power assist for the V-8, which can run on all cylinders or as a V-4 when the cylinder deactivation system is on.
Safety and Interior General Motors has not finalized standard safety equipment or interior options for the Tahoe, which is expected to go on sale later in 2007.
