That all depends on what package you have on your Tahoe, the low geared differentials will have higher engine RPM's then a higher geared one, my Yukon is turning right at 2 grand at 70 but I have done some wheel and tire size changes and readjusted the sensors accordingly. if you have a light touch with the throttle on the highway you can feel it shift all 4 times, and if your real good you can also feel the torque converter lockup.

Check your build sheet to see what the final drive ratio is.

I feel 2300 is acceptable. Count your gear shifts, there will be 4 gears (that means 3 changes). And there is torque converter lockup that happens after 45mph with low throttle. It can feel like a shift. Like they said though, looking up your build sheet or RPO codes will tell you your gear ratio. 3.08's will act very differently than 3.73's

I do like numbers, they don't lie.
