Exclamation GeigerCars turns tuning efforts to... Chevy Tahoe Hybrid?




Quote:
We're used to seeing Geiger Cars tackle wild horsepower-riddled projects, but the tuner'* latest effort involves none other than the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid. No, the company hasn't managed to bleed 1,000 horsepower from the dual-mode hybrid. Instead, the crew at Geiger has managed to talk the big 6.0-liter V8 under the hood into swilling down liquid petroleum gas in a move to substantially cut the big SUV'* fuel costs.

Straight from General Motors, the Tahoe Hybrid is good for around 21 mpg, so we would expect to see some sort of improvement on that front with Geiger'* take on the truck. Unfortunately, the company doesn't provide any solid LPG fuel-economy numbers.

Geiger did tell the world exactly how much the conversion will cost, though. If you'd rather turn your SUV green than look toward a more efficient way to get your family around town, the conversion will cost you a little over $5,000 at current conversion rates. Geiger will also allow you to buy the whole SUV from their shop for a paltry $78,000. Would we lay down our hard-earned cash for the swap? Given the fact that there isn't exactly an LPG fueling station on every corner, we'd have to pass. Hit the jump for the press release.

Nope, sorry, me no likey. Inside looks like a pick up truck. And to buy a hybrid and only get 21mpg, not going to happen. That'* for rich people that want to look like they are saving the planet, but really are not.

Looks okay externally, but I agree that interior sucks. I hate fake wood. That doesn't seem like an $80,000 vehicle to me
