TAKE ON THE REAL WORLD –
ON YOUR OWN TERMS.
The challenges are formidable. Hauling tonnes of cargo. Transporting a full house of family
or friends. Making your own tracks where the road ends. Chevrolet’s family of full-size
utility vehicles have the rock-solid credentials needed to make easy work of even the
toughest demands. But for the 2011 Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche that is only half the
story. The flip-side of their colossal hauling capacity, power and strength is represented by
their impressive fuel efficiency, a range of advanced technologies and highly refined cabins
offering the latest in amenities. The quality is also unimpeachable, with Tahoe, Suburban
and Avalanche each having won prominent industry quality awards in the past year. These
trucks lead the way in other important areas, with the leading-edge technology of Tahoe
Hybrid’s Two-Mode Hybrid System. It is the most vivid demonstration of how the latest in
Chevrolet engineering can help you take on your world your way.

LET’S GET SERIOUS.
With Chevrolet’s full-size SUVs, rugged styling is only a starting point. What they are really all
about are serious capabilities. The power is nothing short of commanding with a standard Vortec
5.3L V8 engine that generates 320 horsepower and 335 lb.-ft. of torque. That power, combined
with the impressive rigidity of the frame, result in a massive 3856 kg (8500 lb.)* maximum
towing capacity. But in today’s world, another stat is equally important – fuel efficiency. Here,
Tahoe beats every other vehicle in its class, with 9.5 L/100 km highway and 14.4 L/100 km
city ratings on 4x4 models.** That’s made possible by Active Fuel Management® technology
that shuts down four of eight cylinders when power demands are low, and Variable Valve
Timing (VVT), in addition to the standard six-speed automatic transmission that includes two
fuel-saving overdrive gears. Another important win for this truck: the 2010 Tahoe earned a
Consumers Choice Best Buy award. The serious SUV: Chevrolet Tahoe.

TAHOE HYBRID
TWO-MODE HYBRID SYSTEM
Tahoe Hybrid, shown in Summit White.
HOW CAN AN SUV
THIS CAPABLE BE
THIS SUSTAINABLE?
It’s one thing to engineer a hybrid system for a compact or mid-size car. What makes Tahoe
Hybrid such a technological marvel is how it delivers the capability of a Chevrolet truck, with a
332 horsepower Vortec 6.0L LIVC V8 AFM gasoline powered engine and a towing capacity of
up to 2812 kg (6200 lb.). At the same time, the advanced GM Hybrid Propulsion Electric System
delivers an astounding 10.1 L/100 km city fuel consumption rating that beats a six-cylinder
Toyota Camry or Honda Accord.* That is made possible by the Two-Mode Hybrid System that
can operate on electric power alone, on gasoline engine power alone, or with a combination of
the two. The electric power even kicks in at highway speeds when passing, towing a trailer or
climbing steep grades. The highly capable and remarkably sustainable Tahoe Hybrid.
The Two-Mode Hybrid System automatically selects the most effective
and efficient blend of power, based on demand. You can check its current
mode of operation on the power flow display that is included with the
Hybrid’s standard Navigation System.
MODE 1
When driving at a low speed with a light load, Mode 1 can operate three
ways: on electric power alone, on gasoline engine power alone, or with a
combination of both. The engine is shut off entirely in stop-and-go traffic,
allowing you to drive up to 48 km/h on electric power alone in certain
situations, dramatically reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
MODE 2
At highway speeds, Mode 2 kicks in. It delivers Vortec V8 gasoline power
with Active Fuel Management providing the fuel efficiency benefits of
4-cylinder operation when power demands are low – plus supplemental
electric power in such demanding situations as passing, towing a trailer
or climbing steep grades.

SUBURBAN
Suburban 2500 LT shown in Sheer Silver Metallic with available equipment.
EVEN MORE CAPABLE
THAN TAHOE? HOW
ABOUT EVEN MORE
CAPABLE THAN ANY
OTHER SUV?
What differentiates Suburban from Tahoe? Suburban offers more cargo space, more towing
capacity and more power. In short, it represents the ultimate in SUV capability. In fact, it
provides a class-leading 3891 L (137.4 cu. ft.) of cargo space,* in addition to Suburban 2500’s
best-in-class maximum trailer weight of 4355 kg (9600 lb.).* Suburban 2500 models also receive
the added output of the Vortec 6.0L V8 that generates 352 horsepower and a substantial
382 lb.-ft. of torque. It features sophisticated, fuel-saving Variable Valve Timing (VVT).
Other beefed up Suburban 2500 components include a heavy-duty cooling package, a heavyduty six-speed automatic transmission and an integrated trailer brake controller. Building on
its heritage as the original sport-utility vehicle 75 years ago, Suburban continues to set the
standard that all other SUVs are measured against.

AVAL ANCHE
SOME THINGS CHANGE. SOME DON’T.
Avalanche makes an effortless transition from luxuriously appointed SUV to a cargoswallowing full-size pickup in less than a minute. That’s thanks to the innovative MidgateTM
that either forms the back of the SUV cabin or folds down to extend the floor of the cargo
box to more than eight feet (2438 mm) in length. What doesn’t change with Avalanche is
Chevrolet’s legendary capability. The same 320 horsepower Vortec 5.3L V8 that’s under
the hood of Tahoe and Suburban 1500 powers Avalanche, and with it come the fuel
efficiency gains of Active Fuel Management and Variable Valve Timing (VVT). And the
cargo box can handle a full-size load, with payload capacities that extend up to 601 kg (1326 lb.).*
Ready for a change? So is Avalanche
* Payload includes weight of passengers, equipment and cargo. Payload is approximate and will change with the addition of optional or aftermarket
equipment. Consult your dealer for details.

AND YOU THOUGHT
THE TERRAIN
WAS TOUGH.
Canada has the climate and the terrain that can test any vehicle. Fortunately, there’s a
package that is built to revel in the challenge: the Z71 Off-Road Package that’s available on
Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche LT models. The look is even more rugged, thanks to exterior
features like Z71-specific 18-inch aluminum wheels, On-Off road tires, chrome tubular assist
steps, fog lights, colour-keyed wheel flares and a chrome grille insert. It’s engineered to be
more rugged, with off-road jounce bumpers, gas-charged monotube shock absorbers, a skid
plate package, specially-tuned springs, front recovery hooks and a two-speed AutotracTM
transfer case on all 4x4 models. Z71 – your ticket to the untamed.

TAHOE/SUBURBAN FUNC TIONALIT Y
FILLING ALL THAT SPACE IS
NO PROBLEM.
You have the friends. And you have the gear. That’s why you’ll find the spacious Tahoe
and Suburban cabins so useful. Both can seat up to a maximum of nine – more than either
the Ford Expedition or Nissan Armada.* Behind the third-row seats of Tahoe, you’ll find
479 L (16.9 cu. ft.) of cargo space. Suburban more than doubles that capacity, with 1297 L
(45.8 cu. ft.). Fold down the second-row seat and remove the third-row and you open up an
enormous 3084 L (108.9 cu. ft.) in Tahoe and a class-leading 3891 L (137.4 cu. ft.) in Suburban.
The 60/40 split-folding second-row bench and 50/50 removable third-row bench provide
excellent versatility, enabling you to accommodate a variety of cargo and passenger needs.
Tahoe and Suburban make it all so easy.

AVAL ANCHE FUNC TIONALIT Y
THE ULTIMATE IN MULTI-TASKING.
It’s the SUV of pickups. Or the pickup of SUVs. Either way, it results in unrivalled versatility.
And it’s all due to the Convert-A-CabTM system, with the Midgate as its centrepiece. When
folded down it creates a cargo box that can carry 4' x 8' sheets of building material with the
tailgate closed in its upright position. No hassles and no tools required. The cargo box itself
makes easy work of loading, unloading and securing objects, thanks to features like grab
handles, lockable 48 L (1.7 cu. ft.) top box storage compartments, eight cargo tie-downs and
a cargo light. To keep your cargo dry and secure, Avalanche also includes a rigid three-piece
cargo cover. No wonder Avalanche is called the Ultimate Utility Vehicle.
With the Midgate in the upright
position, Avalanche provides a
luxurious cabin with five or six
passenger seating configurations.

seating surfaces and other available euipment.
Folding down the split rear seat
increases cargo capacity and
initiates the easy conversion
of the cabin from SUV to pickup.
The transformation is completed by lowering the
Midgate and removing the rear window, which is
stored inside the Midgate. For oversized cargo,
you can lower the tailgate and remove the rigid
3-piece cargo cover as shown.
PG 21
SAFE T Y
THE SAFETY IS
ALSO ADVANCED.
Advanced engineering and technologies are used to make Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche
that much safer. You can see that in technology that helps you avoid obstacles, including the
available Side Blind Zone Alert on Tahoe and Suburban 1500 and the rearview camera system
that’s available on Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche LT and LTZ models. Enhanced driver control
technologies like the standard StabiliTrak® electronic stability control system that helps
maintain directional control and full-function all-speed traction control for added security
on slippery surfaces. Occupant protection is comprehensive, including front-to-rear head
curtain side-impact air bags* and seat mounted side-impact air bags* for the driver and right
front passenger. And you have the added reassurance of OnStar** and its Automatic Crash
Response. Safety – advanced. With Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche.
* A NOTE ON CHILD SAFETY: Always use safety belts and proper child restraints, even in vehicles equipped with air bags.
** Visit onstar.ca for coverage maps, details and system limitations. Services vary by model and conditions. OnStar acts as a link to existing
emergency providers.
HEAD CURTAIN AIR BAGS
Head curtain side-impact air bags* help reduce
the risk of injuries to outboard occupants
in certain side impacts, providing enhanced
protection for all outboard seating rows. When
deployed, the air bags remain inflated in the
unlikely event of a rollover to help reduce
the risk of ejection. Standard on all Tahoe,
Suburban and Avalanche models.
ULTRASONIC REAR PARKING ASSIST
When in Reverse, ultrasonic rear parking
assist detects obstacles in your path up to
2.5 m (8 ft.) behind the vehicle. The system
then activates an audio warning. Standard on
all Tahoe and Suburban LT, LTZ, Hybrid and
Avalanche LTZ models; available on other
models.
STABILITRAK
The standard StabiliTrak system compares your
steering input with the vehicle’s actual track,
intervening automatically whenever it detects
a loss of lateral traction (sideslip), understeer
(plowing) or oversteer (fishtailing). It helps
return Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche to your
intended line by incrementally applying an
individual brake or brakes and if necessary, by
reducing engine torque. As an electronic stability
control system, it has proven to reduce the risk
of a fatal single-vehicle crash by a remarkable
63 percent.† Proactive Roll Avoidance is included
with StabiliTrak to reduce a vehicle’s tendency to
roll over during an extreme manoeuvre.
ONSTAR
OnStar** with six months of the Directions &
Connections Plan are standard on all Tahoe,
Suburban and Avalanche models. Also included
is OnStar’s Automatic Crash Response that
directs emergency help to your exact GPS
location following a collision.
SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT
Blind spots exist on both sides of a vehicle.
The technologically advanced Side Blind Zone
Alert uses radar technology to detect a vehicle
entering a blind spot on either side. It then
triggers an LED symbol alert in the appropriate
exterior rear-view mirror. Available on Tahoe and
Suburban 1500 LTZ models.
HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL SAFETY CAGE
The heavy-gauge steel safety cage helps protect
the integrity of the passenger compartment in
the event of a collision.

POWER AND TOWING
ENORMOUS LOADS.
ENORMOUS POWER.
The loads that these trucks can haul or tow are staggering – with towing capacities ranging
all the way up to 4355 kg (9600 lb.) on Suburban 2500. That size of load demands equally
substantial power, which is precisely what you get from the Vortec V8 engines in every
Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche. The 320 horsepower Vortec 5.3L V8 is standard on all but
Suburban 2500, which features the 352 horsepower Vortec 6.0L V8. These engines aren’t
only engineered for prodigious output, they also incorporate fuel-saving technologies like the
Active Fuel Management on the 5.3L engine and Variable Valve Timing (VVT) on both engines.
The engines are mated with a six-speed automatic transmission that includes a Tow/Haul
mode and tap-up/tap-down Driver Shift Control. Automatic grade braking is also standard,
helping to slow the truck on long descents without having to ride the brakes. Tahoe, Suburban
and Avalanche – built to handle enormous loads capably and efficiently.
ACTIVE FUEL MANAGEMENT
The Active Fuel Management technology
increases fuel efficiency by shutting down four
cylinders under low-demand operating conditions,
such as when cruising at highway speeds or on
level stretches of road. When power demands
increase, such as during acceleration or driving
uphill, the engine switches back to eight-cylinder
operation. Cylinder deactivation and reactivation
are executed with seamless precision. Active Fuel
Management helps Tahoe deliver best-in-class
fuel consumption ratings.*
