If you are in the Pace market for a powerful, efficient, and spacious SUV, the new 2021 Chevy Tahoe is a worthy upgrade. The Tahoe engine produces head-turning specs as the roar from under your hood will be heard throughout the Fort Walton Beach streets. While cargo space, technology, and comfort features are important in a potential SUV, savvy shoppers know that mpg ratings can make or break a budget.

Luckily, you can hit the Niceville streets in efficient style thanks to the strong Chevy Tahoe fuel efficiency. Learn more about the Chevy Tahoe engine, Tahoe gas mileage, and Tahoe performance capabilities below!

Chevy Tahoe Fuel Efficiency

With a seating capacity that can accommodate up to nine passengers, you may expect the 2021 Chevy Tahoe to be a bloated ride. However, the Chevy Tahoe fuel efficiency offers surprising efficiency. With a fuel tank that can hold 24 gallons, you can set out on a long ride without the fear of running low on gas. 

The Chevy Tahoe mpg ratings offer great flexibility for your daily commutes and weekend road trips. Unfortunately, the DURAMAX® 3.0L Turbo-Diesel engine isn’t yet available, so the Tahoe gas mileage for that drivetrain has not been evaluated. However, the available 2021 Chevy Tahoe fuel economy ratings are as follows:
