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.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
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.

Chevrolet's Tahoe Hybrid full-size SUV has room for up to eight people and can tow up to 6,200 pounds. Both rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered. New for 2013 There are no significant changes for the 2013 model year. 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-pillars and flared ends for the running boards to lessen drag
Larger front air dam for better aerodynamics
Aluminum hood and liftgate to save weight
18-inch lightweight aluminum wheels fitted with low-rolling-resistance tires
Hybrid badges on the front fenders, C-pillars and liftgate
Optional power tilt/sliding sunroof
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 touch-screen navigation system with hybrid power-flow animation
16.9 cubic feet of cargo room behind third row
Available rear-seat DVD entertainment system
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 automatically deactivate half 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 Safety features include:
Three-row side curtain airbags
Seat-mounted side-impact airbags for the front seats
Electronic stability system with electronic trailer-sway control and hill start assist
