For those types, equipment in the base Tahoe LS has gotten even better for 2011. Bluetooth connectivity is now standard, as are rear audio controls with two headphone jacks, and floor console storage luggage rack rails, and premium front bucket seats are now also standard. A 40/20/40-split front bench remains optional. Other standard features carried over include an AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 player with USB input; cruise control; power windows, locks, and mirrors; a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wheel-mounted audio controls; and express-down windows.
LT and LTZ models add more features, with the top-of-the-line LTZ getting serious load-bearing upgrades like a heavy-duty locking differential, Autoride load-leveling suspension, and 20-inch wheels, in addition to an upgraded Bose Centerpoint audio system, a nav system with voice recognition, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, tri-zone climate control, remote starting, power-adjustable pedals, and additional power outlets.
The Tahoe Hybrid gets many of the same features as the LT, and can be equipped with LTZ features as options.
This is one vehicle in which you might actually want to spring for the power liftgate; the standard hatch is quite heavy to operate with one arm.
