Vehicle Overview

Chevrolet's Tahoe Hybrid full-size SUV debuted for 2008. It has room for up to nine people and can tow up to 6,200 pounds. The rear-wheel-drive model gets an EPA-estimated 21/22 mpg city/highway.

New for 2011
The Tahoe Hybrid gets GM's OnStar 9.0 telematics system that GM says provides better voice recognition. GM also said they have redesigned the second-row head restraints to provide better protection in rear impacts.

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. Exterior features include:

  • 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

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
  • Power-adjustable pedals
  • 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. Mechanical features include:

  • 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
  • Antilock brakes
