2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

Rated at 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for a combined rating of 18 mpg (in two-wheel-drive form), the 2015 Chevy Tahoe isn't going to deliver hybrid sedan-like economy, but it is an improvement over the outgoing model.

Real-world gains may be even higher than indicated by the EPA ratings, depending on the driver's heavy-footedness, as the cylinder deactivation system effectively transforms the Tahoe into a four-cylinder under low-load driving. In our experience behind the wheel of the Tahoe, combined scores in the low-20-mpg range are possible without resorting to hypermiling heroics.

It's not the greenest people-mover around, but the 2015 Tahoe takes strides toward improvement.

If you add four-wheel-drive to the Tahoe's spec list, EPA-rated gas mileage dips only slightly to 16/22 mpg city/highway, keeping the 18 mpg combined rating.
