2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Overview

When it was new, reviewers said that the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid was a good choice for people who need the capability of a large SUV but want to use less fuel. With an EPA-estimated 20/23 mpg city/highway, the Tahoe Hybrid’s fuel economy ratings don’t come close to matching the ratings of affordable small cars and hybrids, but then again, a Prius can’t tow a 6,200-pound trailer. Keep in mind that a used Tahoe Hybrid might cost more than a non-hybrid large SUV.

Available with rear- or four-wheel drive, the Tahoe Hybrid is powered by a 6.0-liter V8 and a pair of electric motors. Some reviewers said that the Tahoe Hybrid struggles in electric-only mode, but performance improves when its V8 kicks in. Inside, the Tahoe Hybrid can seat up to eight, but like the gas-only version, reviewers complained that the Tahoe Hybrid’s third-row seat doesn’t fold flat into the floor. However, once the rear seats are removed and the second row is folded, the Tahoe Hybrid offers 108.9 cubic feet of cargo space.

Standard features are abundant on the 2011 Tahoe Hybrid, and include leather upholstery, Bluetooth, a Bose stereo system with satellite radio and a USB port, navigation and tri-zone automatic climate control. The Tahoe Hybrid hasn’t changed much since it was introduced in 2008, so you might be able to save some money by purchasing an older model.

Other SUVs to Consider

If you’re looking at the Tahoe Hybrid, be sure to check out the 2011 GMC Yukon Hybrid as well. While reviewers favored the performance of the Yukon Hybrid, the two are very similar. If you have your heart set on a large hybrid SUV, shop for both models to find the one that is best for you.

If you’re drawn to the Tahoe Hybrid because of its capability rather than its fuel economy, you might also want to look at the gas-only 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe. With the available front bench seat, the Tahoe can seat up to nine people. Additionally, the Tahoe can tow about 2,300 more pounds. At 15/21 mpg city/highway, the Tahoe’s fuel economy isn’t as good but it should have a lower price tag.
