2007 and newer Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon



  • Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't those hwy numbers measured at 55MPH. At 75 aerodynamics will take there toll. Real world MPG will be very telling. My guess is that it'll average 17 per tank on the 2WD model! Better, but not good enough with gas >=$3.00.
  • The new Tahoe will move away from the traidional chrome bumper to the inner bumper with outside plastic bumper warp. Personaly, I really dont like the plastic thing on the Tahoe or any truck. The plastic bumper is very easy to get scratched during any minor impact. Go to any parking lot and look closly on late modle cars and you will see substential amount of them have some visiable scraches on the plastic bumpers. Some poorly made plastic bumpers will even sag without ever being hit. Whereas most chrome bumpers last pretty much forever without any scratches or color fading. Obviously having long lasting durability is not a top priority anymore.

    Are measured on a dyno. There is a prescribed "course" that they drive -- X minutes at Y miles an hour, Z minutes stopped, A minutes at B miles an hour, etc., etc. It is NOT steady driving at 55 mph.

    But I certainly agree that driving at 75 mph you will not see the highway rating.
  • No Lemon Law-In CT the defects must make the vehicle unsafe to drive, so cosmetics are out:( I understand I may have bought the one lemon, but my argument and frustration is that the dealer and GM wouldn't stand behind their product at all-but they will sell me a new one! I forgot that the drivers power seat panel has 4 screws, 3 were stripped and the other just the 4 main Bose speaker grills have rusted!?? (Not that it matters as the radio only worked for 1 year...Several of my friends have the same truck w/o the problems (well except for the Bose radio, the brake rotors and door hinge cracks)
  • Right on man.

    This truck needs some AG Simpson chrome. Although this truck looks nice, a bar is a must on GM SUV's/Trucks. For the Silverado's/Sierra's they better have a chrome bumper and they MUST still suit Bob Seger's - Like a Rock.
  • Does anyone know if chevrolet is still keeping Z71 for the future 2007 Tahoe?
  • no idea on that but don't see why not.. its been a very good model for them.. go to and check out future trucks.. or something like that.. they have a page set up with the new Tahoe.. you get to see most of it.. interior looks good
  • Does anyone know whether the test protocol is available on the Internet? Thanks.

    still be an available option.
  • Z71 will not be available until fall 06
  • I wished GM would come out with a two door Tahoe. I really miss it and don't need a four door. I know they had concepts with the last model but never did more than that that I know of.. maybe down in Mexico. If I knew how to post a picture I would post one I came up with.. oh well wishing for the return of the two door.">
  • It's easy to post pictures.

    If it's from a website, then click the "Img" button, on top of the confused emotorcon.

    If you have it saved, then you might have to post it on the internet, like on

    I hope GM offers a 2 WD verison in the 2007 Tahoe.

    I dont really care for the V6 and V8 engines. All I need is the V4 engine with 2 WD.
    This combination will offer the optimum gas mileage.

    People who want V6 and V8 engines should not complain about gas mileage. You had a choice and you chose the gas guzzler option.

    A 4 cyl in a 5000lb vehicle, yikes. Even if it's a turbo diesel 4cyl, it would be painfully slow and useless for anything other than maybe mail duty.

    Witht the size and weight of these vehicles a 4,6, & v8 probably will all get similar mileage.

    If you want a 4cyl with some room, get a small wagon.

    I think you thought this was a CR-V thread.
  • WOW !!!!! A 4 cylinder engine in a 2 1/2 ton vehicle. How would you like to get stuck behind this guy going uphill ?

    Now that would have a great towing capacity ;)

    The interior is much better than previous model, but the front grill looks horrendous. It looks like a huge version of the front end of the Uplander.
    We owned a 2002 Tahoe and thought the SUV was great.
