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 full-size SUV has available four-wheel drive and seating configurations for up to nine people. Both the Tahoe and its corporate sibling, the GMC Yukon, compete with other full-size SUVs like the Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada and Dodge Durango.
A Tahoe Hybrid, which gets an EPA-estimated 20/23 mpg city/highway, is also available and is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section. New for 2013 Powertrain grade braking — which uses engine torque to slow the SUV on descents, reducing brake wear — now operates outside of the transmission's Tow/Haul mode. Exterior The Tahoe's headlights flank a wide grille split by a horizontal bar with a large Chevy bowtie logo. An available Z71 off-road package adds unique exterior details, including large color-keyed fender flares and a chrome grille. Exterior features include:
17-, 18- or 20-inch wheels, depending on the model
Heated side mirrors
Optional fog lights
Optional power sunroof
Optional power-retractable running boards
Interior A sleek dashboard and flush-mounted buttons give the Tahoe a carlike interior. Three rows of seats provide room for up to nine people. The third row is removable, but it doesn't fold flat to the floor like the one in the Ford Expedition. Interior features include:
Available three-person front bench seat
Standard three-passenger third-row seat
Cloth upholstery standard; leather optional
Standard Bluetooth connectivity
Optional power-adjustable pedals
Optional Bose stereo
Optional rear-seat DVD entertainment system
Optional touch-screen navigation system
Optional heated steering wheel
Under the Hood Tahoes are powered by a flex-fuel 320-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 engine that makes 335 pounds-feet of torque on gasoline or 326 hp and 348 pounds-feet of torque on E85 ethanol. The engine has a cast-iron block on two-wheel-drive models and an aluminum block on four-wheel-drive versions. When properly configured, the Tahoe can tow up to 8,500 pounds. Mechanical features include:
Six-speed automatic transmission with powertrain grade braking
Fuel-saving 3.08 axle ratio
Available heavy-duty trailering package with 3.42 axle ratio
Optional integrated brake controller for electrically controlled trailer brake systems
Optional locking rear differential

Standard side-impact airbags for the front seats
Standard side curtain airbags
Front seat belt pretensioners
Optional backup camera
Optional rear parking sensors
Optional blind spot warning system
