Full-size SUV/Crossover - 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid
Gas mileage (city/highway; combined mpg): 20/23; 21
Efficiency-cost rating: 0.39
For people who need the capabilities a full-size SUV brings, the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid is the most cost-effective hybrid of its size. The Tahoe Hybrid can tow up to 6,200 pounds with rear-wheel drive, so for those who take their boats to pristine lands, this is the greenest option. Or is it? If you compare features, the Tahoe Hybrid might improve on a high-priced version of the gas-only Tahoe, but with a starting price more than $13,000 less, the base Tahoe has an efficiency-cost rating of 0.42 — better than the hybrid.
