2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Interior
This interior review was written when the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid was new.
Despite its reduced appetite for gas, the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid serves buyers who are hungry for interior features. Thesays buyers shouldn't "think the Tahoe Hybrid ... skimps on the amenities that SUV drivers love," and adds, "Leather, heated seats, a navigation system and a backup camera are all standard."
There's plenty of space inside the Tahoe Hybrid, which has three rows of seats. "The Tahoe and Yukon are the first hybrids to seat as many as nine people," notes Cars.com. Even the interior, though, is affected by the need to reduce the Tahoe Hybrid's weight. Car and Driver observes that it "also gets thinner, lighter seats," than the conventional Tahoe.
The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid has a wealth of standard interior features, including an AM/FM radio with in-dash single CD player; a Bose premium speaker system with nine speakers total; auxiliary MP3 audio input; a DVD navigation system with voice activation; tri-zone automatic climate control; a leather-wrapped steering wheel; and electric speed-proportional power steering. One feature particularly impresses Car and Driver: "Mark this one down: The Tahoe is the first hybrid to come with keyless starting; heck, it's even standard. That's right, Mr. and Mrs. Overindulgent American Greenie, the press of a button fires up six liters of gas-guzzling V-8 goodness in the driveway. You may be worried about your carbon footprint, but a cold leather seat is no way to start the morning."
The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid has 16.9 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats up. With the third row removed, 60.3 cubic feet become available. And with the second row folded, the Tahoe Hybrid has 108.9 cubic feet of storage. These figures are the same as for the regular Tahoe.
