The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid touts itself as ‘America's first full-size two-mode SUV hybrid.' This amazingly fuel efficient hybrid car reduces gas prices for any driver. In fact, this hybrid SUV is so popular that the Green Car Journal has named it the ‘Green Car of the Year.'

The Tahoe is available in two wheel drive or four wheel drive and uses a ‘hybrid propulsion system.' This system operates in three different ways. First, there is electric power which serves to maximize fuel economy. Second, there is engine power which can be utilized when more power is needed. Third, a combination of the two types of power can be used. This is courtesy of the Vortec V8 which kicks in when needed or shuts off to conserve at other times.

Combat gas prices with Tahoe which uses around 21 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city or 22 MPG on the highway on the two wheel drive models. There is a less than a significant drop for the four wheel drive models: 20 MPG in the city and 20 MPG for highway driving.
