2013 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Overview

The 2013 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid is equipped with a gasoline V8 engine and two electric motors. Reviewers wrote that the Tahoe Hybrid has plenty of power, though some noticed a surging sensation when the powertrain switches between electric and gasoline power. The 2013 Tahoe Hybrid earns an EPA fuel economy estimate of 20/23 mpg city/highway, which is outstanding for the class, and only matched by the similar 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid. Auto journalists reported that the Tahoe Hybrid rides comfortably. However, some critics said that the steering response is sluggish and others noted that the brakes feel mushy. The 2013 Tahoe Hybrid can tow up to 6,200 pounds.

Reviewers agreed that the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid's interior is handsome and well-built, though some disliked that most of the plastics are hard to the touch. There is seating for up to eight, and some critics mentioned that the third row feels pretty cramped. The 2013 Tahoe Hybrid's cargo capacity is a maximum 108.9 cubic feet, which is in line with rivals' cargo areas. As in the gas-only Tahoe and other GM SUVs, reviewers disliked that you have to remove the third row to access the full cargo area. Standard features include navigation, leather seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a USB connection and a rearview camera. Some critics found the navigation and audio system controls easy to use, while others noted that the touch screen's buttons are too small.

Other SUVs to Consider

While it can't match the Tahoe Hybrid's outstanding fuel economy ratings, the 2013 GMC Yukon gets good fuel economy for a large SUV. The long-wheelbase Yukon XL offers more cargo space than the Tahoe Hybrid, and reviewers reported that its third row is comfortable for adults.

The 2013 Ford Expedition earned praise for its controlled, composed handling and good steering feedback. Reviewers also appreciated that the Expedition's third row easily folds flat when expanding the cargo area.
