2011 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid SUV

2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

(3 Stars)  A more manageable Suburban alternative

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Chevrolet Tahoe is a full sized sports utility vehicle that can seat up to nine passengers and still has plenty of power to tow 8,500 pounds. This big truck offers some of the most luxurious features that most would only expect to find in a luxury sedan and also offers some big power to make it one of the best rounded and full featured trucks offered from Chevrolet.

The Tahoe is slightly smaller than the Suburban model, but the slight difference in size translates to a huge improvement in cornering and the ability to navigate in small spaces. The Chevy Tahoe comes with a small block 5.3 liter V-8 that delivers about 325 horsepower. This engine is not underpowered by any means, but this is the only engine available in this SUV model.

These trucks are more fuel efficient than the larger Suburban, but it is almost a direct trade off for the power you lose. The Tahoe starts at $37,570 and there is a hybrid version available as well.
