  • Shift-Light Tachometers: Some tachometers feature a shift-light function that illuminates at a specific RPM, helping drivers with gear changes.
  • Multi-Gauge Sets: Gauge sets often include a tachometer along with other essential gauges like speedometers, fuel gauges, and more.

How Much Do Tachometers Cost?

The cost of tachometers can vary depending on factors such as their type, features, and brand. Basic tachometers can start at around $50, while more advanced models with additional features may range from $100 to $200 or more. It's important to choose a tachometer that suits your needs and is compatible with your vehicle's specifications.
