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.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.

These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

Vehicle Overview Chevrolet's Tahoe Hybrid full-size SUV debuted for 2008. It has room for up to nine people, can tow up to 6,200 pounds and the rear-wheel-drive model gets an EPA-estimated 21/22 mpg city/highway.
New for 2010 There are no significant changes for 2010.
Exterior The Tahoe Hybrid looks much like a regular Tahoe SUV, which is to say that it features a relatively squared-off shape. However, there are a number of subtle (and not so subtle) differences between the two.
Revised D-pillar and flared ends for the running boards to lessen drag
Aluminum hood and liftgate to save weight
18-inch aluminum wheels fitted with low-rolling-resistance tires
Hybrid badges on the front fenders, C-pillars and liftgate
Large hybrid decals on the side doors
Three new colors for 2010
Interior The cabin of the Tahoe Hybrid is similar to the gas-only Tahoe, but it includes some hybrid-specific cues.
Interior features include:
Lightweight front seats
Economy gauge in instrument panel to encourage frugal driving behavior
Standard navigation system with hybrid power-flow animation
16.9 cubic feet of cargo room behind third row
OnStar 8.0, which supports features like Turn-by-Turn navigation and the ability to remotely slow down the vehicle if stolen
New USB input for portable MP3 devices
Under the Hood The Tahoe Hybrid features GM's two-mode hybrid system. It includes a 6.0-liter V-8 engine that makes 332 horsepower and has cylinder deactivation technology, which can deactivate half of the cylinders when they aren't needed. The system's 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.
Electrically Variable Transmission with two electric motors and four forward gears
Rear- or four-wheel drive
Can move on electric power alone up to 30 mph, according to Chevrolet
Safety Standard safety features include:
Three-row side curtain airbags
Electronic stability system
