    So the reg Tahoe is rated at 320hp and 340trq, while the Hybrid version is 332hp and 367trq.

    Is that additional 12hp strictly from those two electrical motors? Or is that the standalone 6.0 Vortec tuned higher on the hybrid?

    And if you smash on the gas pedal 0-60, do the electrical motors help propel the car past 30mph, or do they just completely shut off at that point?

    reg Tahoe's have a 5.3 - hybrids get the 6.0 with increased hp and torque

    combined output with the electrical motors is
    379HP - 472ftlb...(leaked Cadillac escalate documentation )... that is why you can run 40MPH at 1,000RPM engine speed .. in v4 mode v4 mode will run upto 85mph(highest i have tested) you can also accelerate in v4 mode as well with E-assist.

    they run at any speed when enough power is available from the power pack....

    So going into V4 or activating E-assist is all done automatically? Or do you have to toggle V4 on/off?

    How is reliability of the 11-13 Hybrids?

    the item most likely to fail is the oring on oil tube( which is also common on the 5.3 as well) I would NOT buy one if this is present on a used one ( it means it was driven with very low oil pressure for a long period of time??)..i was going to get a 2012 but the low oil pressure light was on who knows how long that has been on.
