The all-new 2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe were just unveiled tonight and they are ready to take on the rest of their rivals in the full size SUV segment with more interior room, an available diesel engine and more style.
On the outside the 2021 Suburban and Tahoe share many styling cues with the Silverado pickup. But what’s even more significant is how much bigger both SUVs are than their predecessors. The 2021 Suburban is 1.3-inches longer with a 4.1-inch longer wheelbase, which gives the new Suburban more interior space. There’s 2.3-inches more legroom in the second row and 2.2-inches more legroom in the third row, while the max cargo space has increased to 144.7 cubic feet, up from 121.7 cubic feet.
The 2021 Tahoe has also grown with its length has increased 6.7-inches and its wheelbase has been stretched 4.9-inches. That extra length provides an extra 10.1-inches of legroom in the third row and 28.2 more cubic feet of total cargo space.
Getting in both SUVs is also easier now since the second-row seat can now slide forward or rearward. The load floor is now both flatter and lower than prior models – improving the ease of loading and unloading.
The 2021 Suburban and Tahoe offer two V8 engine options, a 5.3L V8 with 355 horsepower or a 6.2L V8 with 420 horsepower. If you want a diesel, there’s the Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel with 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. of torque. To make it easier to tow, both models are available with a Max Trailering package that adds a high-capacity radiator and cooling fan, an integrated trailer brake controller, a Hitch Guidance with Hitch View feature and the Chevrolet trailering app.
The new Suburban and Tahoe are also based on a new platform with an independent multilink rear suspension. Both models are also available with an Air Ride Adaptive Suspension system and Magnetic Ride Control.
Inside there’s up to five screens with the biggest being a large, 10-inch touchscreen. An 8-inch color instrument and information cluster is standard on Premier and High Country, while a 4.2-inch color driver information center is standard on LS, LT, RST and Z71 trim levels. A 15-inch Head-Up Display with a 3 x 7-inch display is standard on High Country and available on Premier trim levels. Lastly there are optional dual 12.6-inch-diagonal LCD touchscreens in the rear to entertain your passengers.
Both the 2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe will arrive in mid-2020.
