2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Review - Kelley Blue Book

Yes, this is a hybrid version of the full-size, truck-based Chevrolet Tahoe. If you're surprised, that's ok. Until recently the prototypical hybrid was a small, oddly-styled passenger car. This, on the other hand, appears to be a typical full-size SUV, but like books and people, what makes this SUV special is hiding beneath the surface.

Equipping a large SUV with hybrid technology may seem counterintuitive; certainly a smaller car-based hybrid would offer better fuel-economy, but the reality is that many people need to haul large amounts of cargo or carry more than five passengers, and they'd like to save the planet, too. The Chevrolet Tahoe hybrid lets buyers retain all the functionality of an SUV while using substantially less fuel.
