The 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are lines of full-size sport-utility vehicles that are very similar, but the Suburban is 20 inches longer.
Both the Tahoe and Suburban are offered in LS, LT and LTZ models, with either rear-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive for each. Suburbans can be specified either as standard-duty 1500 models or heavy-duty 2500 models. The Tahoe can tow up to 8,400 pounds, while the Suburban 2500 can tow up to 9,600 pounds when properly equipped.
A 320-horsepower, 5.3L V8 engine featuring E85 capability is the only available engine option for the Tahoe, although a 6.0L is combined with an electric motor on hybrid models, making a combined 332 horsepower. The same 5.3L V8 is standard on 2WD and 4WD Suburban 1500 models and the heavy-duty Suburban 2500 comes equipped with a standard 6.0L V8, which makes 352 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque.
The 5.3L and 6.0L engines both come equipped with Active Fuel Management, which cuts off fuel to half of the cylinders in some conditions when full engine power isn't needed.
The Tahoe Hybrid model, which joined the lineup in 2008, gets a 6.0L V8 as part of a 2-Mode hybrid system that is capable of powering the Tahoe at low speed on electric power alone, while at higher speeds the electric motor system assists the gasoline engine for more efficient accelerating and passing. The Hybrid has 8-passenger seating and can tow up to 6,200 pounds.
The stiff, fully boxed frame of Tahoe and Suburban helps provide the structure for heavy hauling and towing and also reduces vibration in the passenger cabin. There's also extensive noise-reduction material used throughout the models inside the headliner, over the engine, in front of the dash and in door seals.
Luxurious LTZ models get a smooth Autoride suspension system, which has two modes of damping--one firmer, one softer--which it can switch between quickly depending on driving conditions.
Inside, the Tahoe and Suburban have a sophisticated instrument panel design, with LED backlighting and chrome accents, which is smoother and more car-like in design than most other full-size SUVs. Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is standard.
Roof-mounted head-curtain air bags with rollover protection, covering all three seating rows, are standard across the model lines, and side impact airbags are also now standard. StabiliTrak electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are also included with both models.
Standout features available on the Tahoe and Suburban include a remote start system, heated seats for the first and second rows, a power-release fold-and-tumble second row, ultrasonic rear parking assist, a rearview camera system, touch-screen navigation, and an 8-inch rear DVD entertainment system.
Towing And Hauling Ability
Compliant Ride And Handling Relative To Other Large SUVs
Fuel-efficient Hybrid Model.
For 2010, the Chevy Tahoe and its larger sibling, the Suburban, see few changes. The Suburban drops the 2LT trim level, leaving only the LS, LT and LTZ. The Tahoe is no longer offered with the 4.8 or 6.2 liter V8 engines, leaving the 5.3-liter V8 as the sole powerplant for non-hybrid versions. A 6-speed automatic is the only transmission available on both models. Other updates include several equipment changes, such as new audio systems with standard USB ports and the addition of front side air bags to the list of standard equipment.
Chevy's 2010 Tahoe and Suburban pair sturdy, capable truck underpinnings with more modern car-like interiors and features and they stand out for their comfortable ride and decent handling. With the addition of the Hybrid model, introduced in 2009, trailer towing need not exclude fuel economy.
