Almost 40MPG out of it in the city (at 41MPH with cruse control 0% grade)
0MPH wind...


65MPG @ 70-75mph(v4 Mode Cruse control OFF) tailgating a 18wheeler with a trailer-tail.. the ones with out the trailer tail offer zero benefit. even a loss of mpg slightly about 1-2mpg (at 25-26mpg)....



so 40MPG/27.8MPG is possible under "hypermiling"..

40MPG MY City/65MPG HYW under SUPER hypermiling


it's running highway gears 3.08 RWD

Whoopee. I’ll hit 99+ on downgrades. About as significant a claim. Out on the Plains with a steady tailwind my four ton Dodge gets above 30-mpg. For hundreds of miles. Is it a valid claim? It’s the fuel pump receipt versus miles that matters. 27-mpg is more likely.

Per Trip Average Speed versus Engine Hours is the equation to understand. You don’t.

A Tahoe is a fairly useless trucklet. No bed and no significant storage space or payload capacity that can be used by solo driver. Thus, a Mommy Van. Softball Daddy-mobile. No practicality.

The small Ford Transit van whups it in every practical way.

What practical uses doesn’t a Tahoe serve? Other than those you would need a 2500 or larger truck for

I didn’t get a transit connect because my wife refused to be seen in a first generation, and the ‘14 and newer passenger vans were going for about $14k and up

"Why did I switch from Toyota to Chevy? Just look at it."

Apparently the Toyota had stealth mode activated and she was tired of walking into it.

your Prius can only tow a dinghy

while i can tow 6200 pound trailer
3rd row delete
2nd row folds away No cargo space my ass

I can regularly get 39.9 in the city acceleration(so it stays in electric ) to 30 and jump from 30 to 41MPH and it will get 39.9 MPG in the city.with AFM v4 mode.. I driven very large vehicles Suburban will be a pain in the ass to park as well as any pickup that is not a s10 sized one aka compact

pretty much anything over 220" will be a pain in the ass to park
I know i owned a double cab 8ft bed 248" long parking it was a b%%%%... here in Los Angeles

IF I need cargo space ill rent a uhal trailer duh

volt honda civic prius, can't tow anything and HAVE NO space at all


plus up here you need to have a SUV our speed limit is 40 to 60MPH

any car is YOUR mobile casket ..( it means your F'en dead if you get hit at 55mph)..

seen it happen

Tahoe hit a ACCORD..
they left in body bags(people in the honda accord) accord made an unsafe uturn..

One of our Soldiers hit an Accord with his deuce and a half.

He was hospitalized. The Accord passengers walked away.

It depends on the accident, but by all means, definitely buy the vehicle most likely to kill others.
