Special features for 2009

Chevy's 2009 Tahoe and Suburban pair sturdy, capable truck underpinnings with more modern car-like interiors and features and they stand out for their comfortable ride and decent handling. With the addition of the new Hybrid model, trailer towing need not exclude fuel economy.
With seating for up to eight occupants and a maximum towing capacity of 6,200 pounds, the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid offers all the comfort and capability of a full-size SUV together with 50-percent improved city mileage over the non-hybrid version. Available in rear- and four-wheel-drive trims, the Tahoe Hybrid is powered by a two-mode hybrid system featuring a 6.0L V8 engine coupled to a pair of 60-kilowatt electric motors connected to an electrically variable transmission, which in combination produce 332 hp and 367 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain can propel the Tahoe up to 25 mph using only electricity, while the cylinder-deactivation system helps reduce fuel consumption at higher speeds, and regenerative braking is employed to replenish the batteries during stops. Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid fuel economy is 21 mpg city/22 mpg hwy and 21 mpg combined for rear-wheel-drive and 4WD gets 20 mpg city/20 mpg hwy; however, mileage may vary depending on driving style. Standard safety equipment includes traction and stability control, OnStar, a rearview camera and full-length side curtain airbags.
