You can get the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid in only one style: loaded.

General Motors spent a lot of money developing the 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid's two-mode hybrid system. According to AutoblogGreen, "To help minimize the loss, the system is installed on well-equipped vehicles that people are willing to spend more for," such as the Tahoe Hybrid. Thus, there isn't a "no-frills" version of the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid. 2008 is the year to get a fully loaded rig without having to check off all of the options boxes. That's not to say you'll be stuck with unpopular features, but you will have to pay for them.

The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid offers real utility in a luxurious, green package, though at a steep price.

Standard features of the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid include leather, a navigation system (which Edmunds says is "easy to use"), a nine-speaker Bose audio system with XM satellite capability, a backup camera, remote start, heated power-folding side mirrors, three-zone automatic climate control, and rear park assist. "The Bose audio system [also comes with] a CD/MP3 player, an auxiliary audio jack [and] two rear seat audio jacks," writes Edmunds. The 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid's instrument cluster includes an auto stop position to indicate when the engine is off for fuel-saving purposes. The Detroit News describes the unique instruments that inform the driver of what mode the Tahoe Hybrid is operating in: "To the right, an economy gauge helps maintain an efficient driving style, and the standard navigation system screen can display a real-time status of how power is flowing between the engine, batteries, and motors." Less popular is the standard tire inflation kit that replaces the traditional spare tire in an effort to save weight. ForbesAutos notes "a third-row seat is available but can't be folded flat into the floor...they must be removed manually, which can be quite a chore." Cars.com mentions, "Provided free of charge for the first year is GM's OnStar communication system."

According to Kelley Blue Book, optional features on the 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid include "power glass sunroof, engine block heater, rear seat DVD entertainment, locking rear axle, six-disc MP3 compatible CD changer and four-wheel drive." That's the extent of options for the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid 2008.
