Full-size utility

Chevrolet Tahoe is an attractive full-size SUV that offers spaciousness and comfort. And for 2013, Chevrolet Tahoe is available in LS, LT, LTZ and Hybrid models, all offered in 2WD and 4WD.

LS, LT and LTZ models are powered by a 5.3L V-8 that uses variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management to optimize performance and efficiency. A fuel-saving Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed is standard on all models and contributes to a 21-mpg highway fuel economy rating. The average city fuel economy rating is 15 mpg.

For even greater fuel economy in a full-size SUV, the Tahoe Hybrid uses GM’s patented two-mode hybrid system to deliver a 33 percent improvement in fuel economy in city driving. The Tahoe Hybrid averages 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Tahoe design and exterior features

Tahoe features the global face of Chevrolet, with a large gold Chevy bowtie centered on a twin-port horizontal grille. The grille surround is inset with an argent texture or available chrome finish. The lower fascia, incorporating the front license plate holder, is aggressively styled with a skid-plate look that enhances Tahoe’s rugged appearance.

Additional features include heated power-operated outside mirrors, which are standard on LTZ and available on LT; a power-operated liftgate, which is available on LT and standard on LTZ; and a range of 17-inch and 20-inch wheels.
