Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid test drive coming up...


I am driving the Hybrid version of the Tahoe this week.

It feels like "worlds collide".
A huge 6.0 Liter V8 engine, paired with an electric motor.
The whole thing wrapped up in a 6000 lbs beast.

Does it work, or is it a weird Frankenstein type experiment?

I'll answer your questions.

the former mayor of San Francisco(Gavin Newsom) used to have one parked outside of city hall, with the hybrid decals all over it. It kind of looked cool, but it was largely because of the rims, and the tahoe with blacked out windows has a pretty mean stance - the hybrid decals were necessary as to not have his tahoe keyed by some environmentalist. What are its advantages over the non-hybrid model?

I would personally prefer the VW Touareg TDI or pay a few thousand more then the Tahoe Hybrid for the Touareg Hybrid.

...........I guess it is better than just getting 7 mpg.

Pointless vehicle unless you NEED to tow a ton.

The interior is garbage as well. Pay attention to the secondary surfaces and the materials used on them. Sure, the dash isn't bad but everything else is pure old GM garbage.

If I'm going to be paying $65,000 for a Tahoe, I might as well get the one with the HIDs, LEDs, and a Caddy emblem kit...
