The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid Was a Truly Terrible SUV

The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid was an awful SUV. Today I'm reviewing the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid, and I'm going to show you all of the quirks and features of the Tahoe Hybrid. Then I'm going to show you how the Tahoe Hybrid drives -- and I'm going to explain why the Tahoe Hybrid is such a bad vehicle.

    With all the supposed experience car makers have you’d think any issues there might be with a particular car would be resolved during the R&D phase.

    I haven't bought many vehicles. The ones I've bought was based on proven reliability, not fuel economy. If I bought a hybrid, it certainly wouldn't be a GM product.

    There are some GM products that allows the V-8 engine to save fuel by automatically switching from 8 cylinders to 4 cylinders at cruising speed. I know someone who has a Cadillac Escalade that broke down. The mechanic told him the engine seized up and had to be replaced. The mechanic said a bad sensor that has something to do with switching the engine from 8 cylinders to 4 cylinders for power is what cause the engine to fail.

    That was completely ridiculous. Bought an '02 in '05 with 30k on it for 22k in the Suburban with the 5.3 Vortech. Currently has 200k, minimal repairs, hauls 9 with decent cargo room, 4 wheel drive and if you can't figure out how to close the rear hatch you undoubtedly have other issues in your life.

    9 grand for a hybrid add on doesn’t sound so steep at all, especially for the time, you have to factor in the cost to build the batteries and the motor and on top of that, the price of re engineering the entire drive train just for that system to work. is it worth the extra 4 mpg? for a vehicle of that size in my opinion is definitely worth it. my armada barley gets double digits. i do enjoy watching dougs videos but this video is poorly researched imo. Edit: i just watched the entire video...this video is so ridiculous, i lost 4 brain cells. (badum tiss)

    A few more things. The hood is aluminum instead of steel, the back bumper is also designed specifically for the Hybrid model, as well as the rear post by the tailgate are also specific to the Hybrid. Also the 3rd row seats can fold up against the 2nd row, to gain you more cargo room.

    40% better city fuel economy than the base model, I don't know what y'alls issue is with this thing. 40% improvement is MASSIVE, and more than Toyota gets from hybrid-ing the Camry. MPG is not a linear number, so this comparison is just ignorant. Gallons per mile is a linear figure that's more applicable.

    First of all you can see the green when the light is on <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="447">7:27</a>. Second of all, I call bullshit on you not being able to fit your backpack back there <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="689">11:29</a>. Third, you dont have to remove the rear seats they actually fold forward to create more room <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="740">12:20</a>. Also, the leather thing is so you lift it down enough to be able to close it normally not close it most of the way or do whatever clown shit you did with throwing the tailgate and catching it <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="784">13:04</a>. Dont be ridiculous Doug.

    This body style was released in like 2007 so you got to figure designing started in 06 or so. That's one of the reasons I think they feel so dated. I mean the build quality and design was definitely cheap even for back then compared to some other makes. I can't believe they kept this generation for so long.

    We love Doug but the desire to punch him in the face was high with this one 1. Besides all of the hybrid badges you failed to mention the different taillights, rear pillars, and rear spoiler 2. You are aware that there is a suburban/yukon XL/escalade ESV that offers storage behind the third rows correct? Who the fuck drives around with 7 people PLUS cargo for 7 people dipshit 3. Don't act like a fucking idiot, the loop clearly would help a shorter person pull the trunk lower until they could comfortably get a grip on the trunk with the other hand and shut it. It wasn't meant for a 6'4 virgin in cargo shorts to slam it down the full way with just the loop 4. "The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid Was a Truly Terrible SUV " <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1160">19:20</a> "It isn't a terrible suv, I think its actually a pretty good vehicle" ???? 5. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1178">19:38</a> " I don't know how reliable these hybrid tahoes are" Oh ya know not like they're built on one of the most mass produced platforms of all time or anything like that

    Doug I like your videos alot but the tailgate loop scene kinda has me shaking my head. It wasn't for fully closing the hatch like you are trying to do. It was so shorter people could reach to pull the hatch to a reasonable height and place their hand on the hatch itself to close it. Maybe it was a joke that went over my head but after that I couldn't take the rest of the video seriously at all.

    We have an 03 cadillac escalade and it has a few of the issues this tahoe has. Like it still had that complicated stalk, had that plastic thing in the foot well, and you can't fold the seats flat. Though I there is a lever on the back of the seats that I think you use to lift them up and take them out, but at least in our escalade will stay up. So you can just put the seats up mostly flat against the 2nd row seats and you will have almost all the room if you reclaiming them without removing them.
