Overview of 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid 4WD By Eric Tallberg
Need a fuel-efficient 8-passenger midsize SUV with 4-wheel drive? Check out the 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid 4WD. In addition to loads of traction, this big ute features 3 rows of seating for 8 occupants and nearly 109 cubic feet of total cargo area.
A variable-valve-timed (VVT), 332-hp 6.0-liter hybrid V8 engine combines with a pair of 60-kilowatt electric motors and a unique 4-speed automatic transmission for 379 total hp and 367 lb-ft of torque. The miserly Tahoe Hybrid 4WD can be driven using electric power alone under 30 mph, with combined gas/electric mileage estimated at 20 mpg city/23 highway. When properly equipped, towing is maxed out at 5,900 pounds in this green machine, with a rear locking differential also included as standard equipment.
The 4WD system, meanwhile, sports the traditional 2-speed transfer case with electronic hi-lo gear selection and auto-locking hubs. Be advised that this midsize ute, because of the somewhat delicate nature of its hybrid system, is not designed for dedicated off-road cruising.
Anyhow, standard appearance bling includes 18-inch alloy wheels with low-rolling-resistance tires, step running boards and reverse-tilting and heated power-adjustable outside mirrors. Comfort and convenience-wise, look for standard leather upholstery, heated power-adjustable front seats and full power accessories, all ensconced in tri-zone climate control. Simulated wood and simulated alloy cabin accents are, of course, standard as well.
For convenience, this hefty ute sports cruise control and tilt-wheel steering, as well as OnStar Directions and Connections, a universal remote garage door opener, a rear-view camera and rear parking sensors.
Entertainment, meantime, is presented via an MP3-capable single-CD player with 9 Bose premium speakers, bolstered by satellite radio and a USB port. Bluetooth hands-free calling also comes standard, as does a hard-drive-based navigation system.
The available Sun, Entertainment and Destinations Package adds a power sunroof and rear-seat DVD entertainment, with NavTraffic and extended satellite radio service also thrown in. Of course, the sunroof and rear-seat entertainment can also be added separately.
Safety-wise, look for 4-wheel antilock brakes aboard the 2012 Tahoe Hybrid 4WD, as well as traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags and 3-row head airbags. Daytime running lights are additionally standard, as are turn-signal-integrated mirrors, OnStar emergency services and alerts, and a post-collision safety system.
This overview covers the Hybrid 4WD trim only.
