2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid Review
Driving the 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid is just like driving any other Tahoe except for one great thing....the gas mileage has been improved. By making the bumper lower and smooth, they have changed the aerodynamics, which helps to conserve fuel. When looking at the hood and the tailgate, one will notice that they are made of aluminum, which is lighter adding to the fuel mileage. The tires have been made lighter and the wheels themselves make the weight of the Tahoe more fuel-efficient.
The inside has just as much room and comfort. The spacious interior has plenty of legroom as well as storage space. The only thing different is the lack of a power lift gate. You can tow anything up to a weight of six thousand pounds without any problems.
The 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid rides nicely and has a suspension system that makes you feel like you are riding in a luxury car. There is plenty of room for the driver to sit comfortable behind the wheel and the dashboard is right there so you can see everything. The four door Tahoe is geared more toward the family and has provided better braking and steering response times. When driving the 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid with the Demand engine system, you won't notice any huge differences from the older models.
The fuel economy saving features seems to work for Chevy. The Tahoe Hybrid does live up to its reputation for getting twenty
miles to the gallon in the city. It
does handle nice in the wind without much resistance. It turns smoothly and does handle comfortable at top highway speeds. The
keyless ignition is nice for cold weather starting, since you can start the Tahoe from inside the house. It is a standard feature
that comes along with the package.
The seats are made thinner, but the length is still there. The comfort level on a long ride is good. There is plenty of headroom and plenty of room to spread out. In all, the 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid has a comfortable ride and a control panel that is easy to see and read even at night. It has plenty of overhead lights to see in the back as well as in the front seat.
The Tahoe Hybrid by Chevy is the newest way to own a hybrid with good mileage and tap into some the savings. With gas prices today as high as they are, the owner of this Hybrid will definitely see savings at the gas pump. (Note: The highway and city mileage does not figure in the wind or the road conditions as well as traffic conditions.)
2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Technical & MSRP review
The hybrid two-mode propulsion system provides for fifty percent better gas mileage in the city. One can expect twenty to twenty-one miles in the city. When the first mode is activated, the Tahoe can operate in one of two ways. It can be operated with a combination of engine and electric power, engine power alone or electric power alone. The full efficiency of the hybrid system is found when using the electric mode. By having the engine shut down and operating on the electric power, the Tahoe saves fuel consumption. This will work the best in stop and go traffic.
Using the combination of the electric power and engine power on the highway will help with the gas mileage, giving about twenty-one in the city to twenty-two miles to the gallon on the highway for a 2WD or twenty miles to the gallon for 4X4. When climbing steep hills or towing, the engine and electric power helps save fuel and gives more power that is needed. To shift between the two modes requires no speed change. The Tahoe also shifts between four cylinders and eight cylinders with the aid of the Active Fuel Management system depending on the power needs when driving.
The wheelbase of the 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid is one hundred and sixteen inches with a body length of two hundred and two inches. The width of the Tahoe is seventy-nine inches. The interior headroom is the front is 41.1 inches, while the legroom is 41.3 inches. The shoulder room and hip room are 65.5 inches and 64.4 inches respectively. The middle and rear of the Tahoe loses inches in the headroom, legroom and hip room, but the shoulder room is only a couple inches smaller.
The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid will sit eight people and has a gas tank capacity of twenty-four and a half gallons. The payload
base for a 2WD is One thousand - five hundred and fifty nine pounds while the 4X4 is one thousand - five hundred and
thirteen pounds. The maximum towing weight is six thousand in a 4X4 and sixty-two hundred in the 2WD. The 4X4 and the
2WD have rack and pinion steering as well as four-wheel disc braking with power brakes and standard four wheel braking
with the antilock system.
The standard package on the 2008 Chevy Tahoe hybrid includes a one hundred and sixty amp alternator, heavy duty 600 cca battery including rundown protection, a Vortec 6.0L V8 with the Active Fuel Management system and GM Oil Life Monitor. The standard package also includes the electric Hybrid Propulsion two-mode system, one hundred and ten volt power inverter, a Proactive Roll Avoidance and StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System. This package also includes the Premium Smooth Ride Suspension and a tire pressure monitor. The Tahoe does come with the trailer equipment already installed.
