Tahoe Hybrid

GM will showcase its new Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and GMC Yukon Hybrid, the only hybrid full-size SUVs, at the 2007 State Fair of Texas, Sept. 28 – Oct. 21. Both models, to be built locally at the GM Arlington Assembly Plant, will deliver a 30 percent gain in overall fuel economy and, during certain driving conditions, will run on pure electricity. The Tahoe and Yukon Hybrids' 6.0L V-8 engine is equipped with the GM Active Fuel Management system, which disengages half of the engine's cylinders when full engine power is not needed, allowing the engine to move seamlessly from V-8 to V-4 on driving demands. Electric-only propulsion is available up to 30 mph, which is key to reducing fuel consumption in heavy stop-and-go traffic.
