The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid vs. the 2012 Nissan Armada Platinum

When you’re in the market for a top-of-the-line full-size SUV, consider the 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid. It comes fully loaded with the features you would expect at the top trim levels of other full-size SUVs and doesn’t skimp on the power either. The beauty of a hybrid, too, is that it’s going to give you much better gas mileage than you’ll find elsewhere. As a point of comparison, let’s take a look at how the Tahoe Hybrid stands up to the 2012 Nissan Armada Platinum, the top trim of the Armada.

Full-Size SUV Power and Fuel Economy

First of all, the new Tahoe Hybrid is the clear winner if your only factor is fuel economy. A full-size SUV can be a gas guzzler when it comes to driving around town, but the Tahoe gets 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg highway while the Nissan Armada only gets 13 mpg city and 19 mph highway.

For those who think hybrids aren’t powerful, they haven’t seen the Tahoe hybrid at our Chevy dealership near Cortez, FL. In fact, it’s more powerful than the 2012 Nissan. The Nissan has a 5.6L V8 capable of 317 hp, which is topped by the Chevy SUV that has a 6.0L V8 capable of 332 hp.

Similar Features at a Lower Price

So the Tahoe has the better fuel economy and more powerful engine, but what about features? Can this hybrid even compete with the Armada Platinum? Both vehicles are well equipped with Bluetooth, a built-in hard drive, heated seats, navigation, and parking assistance. To top it off, the starting price of the Tahoe is $51,970 and the Nissan starts at $52, 220.
