TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban

Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 You didn't expect to see fuel economy among the reasons to buy a Tahoe, did you? Of course, fuel economy remains well below that for most smaller, lighter vehicles. But General Motors has substantially improved the SUV's efficiency by adding variable valve timing, direct injection (fuel is injected under high pressure directly into the cylinder, rather than into the manifold), and cylinder deactivation to the 5.3-liter V8. EPA ratings improved from 15 city, 21 highway to 16/23 with 2WD and 16/22 with 4WD. I observed averages as high as 21 in the suburbs and 26 on the highway, quite impressive for an 80-inch-wide, 74-inch-tall, three-ton vehicle. Transitions between V4 and V8 operation are not perceptible, with the engine usually in the former mode when not accelerating, even at highway speeds. Ford took a different approach to improving fuel economy, replacing its 5.4-liter V8 with a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6. The resulting EPA ratings of 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway are better than before, but aren't as good as the Tahoe's. My trip computer averages were similarly two to three mpg shy of those observed in the Tahoe. see full Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban review

At $4 a gallon and a 32 gallon gas tank, you feel it every time you fill up and if you drive a lot in the city, at 15 mpg, you will fill up often. The vehicle actually garners a respectable 21 mpg on the highway. see full Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban review
