Vehicles with Incentives & Rebates
The Chevy Tahoe has no major changes for 2013. It just gets a higher-capacity battery and a couple of new exterior colors, and the grade braking function, which uses engine compression to help slow the vehicle when going down hills, now works in the normal transmission mode instead of only in the Tow/Haul setting.
The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV gains a new navigation radio as well as adds trailer sway control and hill start assist to its standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control. The LTZ trim gains a heated steering wheel, side blind zone alert and heated and cooling front seats, while the LT trim gains heated front seats.
While Toyota and Honda are busy building small, relatively affordable hybrids, GM is taking a different track, working to improve the fuel efficiency of its most popular sedans and SUVs. The logic may pass over die-hard environmentalists, but from the typical American family's point of view, it makes perfect sense. Many families need the interior accommodations provided by a full-size SUV, not to mention its ability to tow a boat or horse trailer. By creating a hybrid version of its full-size Yukon and Tahoe SUVs, GM has built two vehicles that can seat eight, tow up to 6,200 pounds yet achieve the same city fuel economy ratings as the four-cylinder Toyota Camry.
