2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Overview
If you need a big SUV with excellent fuel economy that will help keep Lake Tahoe blue, the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid retains the ample power and utility of its gas-only sibling, while reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
A two-mode, 300-volt hybrid system blends two electric motors with a 332-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-8 to achieve big-time power and fuel efficiency. Regenerative braking captures energy from braking friction to recharge the hybrid system’s battery, for essentially free power. To further boost fuel efficiency, the Tahoe Hybrid provides Active Fuel Management, which shuts down power to half the cylinders while you are cruising.
The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid comes in two- or four-wheel drive, and achieves fuel economy ratings of 20-21 mpg in the city and 20-22 mpg on the highway. The two-wheel drive model features 50 percent improved fuel economy over the regular Chevrolet Tahoe, while towing up to 6,200 pounds.
The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid comes nicely equipped with a long list of standard features including XM Satellite Radio, USB connectivity for portable media devices, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a navigation system that displays hybrid system power flow information. OnStar satellite communications, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather seats with heat come standard. XM’s NavTraffic with live traffic updates, a nine-speaker Bose audio system and a rear seat TV with DVD entertainment system add premium electronic features to enhance your riding and driving experience.
Seating up to nine passengers with 109 cubic feet of cargo room, the Tahoe Hybrid's interior space is ample for all but the most intensive cargo applications. Most interior metrics, such as hip room and front headroom, are better than or equal to competitors.
Keep you and yours safe with the 2011 Tahoe Hybrid’s tough truck chassis that teams with dual front, front-side, and three-row head airbags. Four-wheel antilock brakes, traction and stability control systems and available rear parking sensors further enhance safety. The available blind-spot warning system notifies the driver when the Tahoe begins to merge into an occupied lane.
A state-of-the-art two-mode hybrid system couples with a dominant V-8 to make the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid a winner in towing and gas-saving competitions. Luxurious materials and cutting-edge electronics will make it a winner with your passengers as well.
