2009 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

You want a highly capable full-size SUV that can seat a crowd and haul a trailer without breaking a sweat. Yet you also need a vehicle that is fuel efficient – not just powerful. The 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe lets you have it both ways. Its capabilities are legendary with a trailering capacity of up to 8400 pounds. Its power is formidable with a standard 320 horse power Vortec 5.3L V8 engine. But Tahoe's V8 engines also feature Active Fuel Management that helped it earn best-in-class V8 fuel consumption honours 20 miles per gallon highway. And for 2009 fuel efficiency is further enhanced by the new six-speed automatic transmission that includes two overdrive gears. Inside the cabin you will be greeted by an abundance of space Tahoe offers seating configurations for up to nine. Automatic tri-zone climate controls provide yet another form of comfort. A reflection of Tahoe's commitment to safety can be seen in the fact that it earned the highest possible U.S. government frontal and side crash test ratings – five stars. And it isn't only the occupant protection that's advanced. The newly available side blind zone alert uses radar technology to detect a vehicle entering a blind spot. So don't trade off capability for fuel efficiency. Get it all in the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe.
