The Tahoe Hybrid utilizes a two-mode gas-electric powertrain that helps it achieve an EPA estimated fuel economy rating of 21 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.

For 2010, the Chevy Tahoe and its larger sibling, the Suburban, see few changes. The Suburban drops the 2LT trim level, leaving only the LS, LT and LTZ. The Tahoe is no longer offered with the 4.8 or 6.2 liter V8 engines, leaving the 5.3-liter V8 as the sole powerplant for non-hybrid versions. A 6-speed automatic is the only transmission available on both models. Other updates include several equipment changes, such as new audio systems with standard USB ports and the addition of front side air bags to the list of standard equipment.

Chevy's 2010 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 Hybrid model, introduced in 2009, trailer towing need not exclude fuel economy.
