You'll Like The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe If...

If you have a number of children, tow a boat or horse trailer and like the feel of a substantial V8-powered vehicle, the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe could be just the ticket. Another plus: The Tahoe’s powerful V8 engines offer Active Fuel Management technology and are E85-ready.

Fuel efficiency around town is horrible.

I like being high up and having the power of a V8 engine. Cargo area is large and I can fit most everything I need to inside. I also use it to trailer ATV's so the hitch and towing capacity are important. My biggest issue is the procedure to change a headlight bulb in this generation. You shouldn't have to partially remove the bumper to do this. Really poor design.

Lots of space. Great investment.

I have owned my Chevy Tahoe for 5 years and I think it is the best investment I have ever made. I have twins so the space I get for two car seats is great. The model I own has a 3rd row so if we take family anywhere they can come with us instead of having to take multiple vehicles. Also the 3rd row is removable so we get that extra trunk space if needed.

- Bianca P

My vehicle is super reliable and fuel efficient while being a SUV.

My 2011 Tahoe, despite being an SUV, has really great gas mileage and never really has issues. The leather seats are super comfortable and being able to adjust them in many different ways for my comfortability is great. I love that it has Bluetooth but I wish it wasn't just for phone calls, I would enjoy having Bluetooth music as well.
