Power and Fuel

Engine choices on the Tahoe include a 335 hp 5.3-liter or a 420 hp 6.2-liter V-8. Both come with cylinder deactivation to help save fuel when full power isn’t needed. The 5.3-liter V-8 pairs with a six-speed automatic, while the 6.2-liter V-8 gets a 10-speed automatic. It offers a tow/haul mode for the six-speed transmission; and rear- or four-wheel-drive models are also offered. It has considerable ground clearance and towing capabilities of up to 8,600 pounds. The Tahoe estimates 15/22 mpg in the city and on the highway and is average for a full-size SUV.

The Enclave’s powertrain is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 310 hp and 266 pound-feet of torque, and is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It offers power and performance for a midsize SUV, but it doesn’t have quite the power and towing capability of the Tahoe. It can pull with up to 5,000 lbs. when properly equipped. This midsize SUV typically gets an estimated 18/26 mpg city and highway, which isn’t bad for this class size.
