    Default 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid Review

    Full Review >>

    I've got my hands on a 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid to review for this week and it's incredible how quiet this thing is on take off. Seriously, it's like a 6,000 lb Prius in terms of how quiet it is. You hardly notice it turn on when the engine kicks on too.

    Thus far I've been getting ~ 22 MPG in the Tahoe. That's very impressive! It's just as comfy and roomy as the regular Tahoe as well.

    3rd row Tahoe doesn't give you much room in the back.






    ... unless the seats are up, then you've got a ton of space.



    Don't forget the entertainment package

    This is the cool part ... you can watch what the Hybrid system is doing on the front display.

    I'm impressed. I know soccer moms who drive tahoes around and they get bad mileage, like 12 mpg when adding in everything. over 20 mpg is very impressive.
