Major Tahoe and Suburban Changes Announced for Redesign

Have you heard that Chevrolet will completely redesign the Tahoe and the Suburban for the 2021 model year? There are lots of exciting changes in store we wanted to share.

These new versions will offer more space, have a new engine option, and come with a new independent rear suspension. The Suburban gets a 4.1-inch increase in its wheelbase, which helps its maximum cargo area expand to 144.7 cubic feet. The Tahoe also gets bigger and will give third-row passengers 40 percent more legroom.

Some of the other impressive Tahoe and Suburban changes include an available 10-inch touch screen, available high-resolution 12.6-inch touch screens for the second row, and an optional head-up display. These all offer drivers an improved experience behind the wheel of these SUVs.

Both models have used a column shifter for decades. However, in the next-generation Tahoe and Suburban, you will see a vertical array of buttons for shifting the transmission. Michael Stapleton, Chevrolet Interior Design Director, told Muscle Cars & Trucks that the design team looked at several options, including a rotary dial, but decided to choose the vertical buttons because they are easier to use and line up more with the muscle memory many of us are used to when it comes to shifting.

Although these models will probably be delayed until next year — which could overlap with the 2022 model year, they’ll be welcome additions to the Chevy lineup at Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC. Browse our current-generation Tahoe and Suburban models in stock now.

Essential Spring Maintenance to Boost Your Car’s Health

Now that spring is here, it is time to do some spring cleaning. Along with airing out your house and getting rid of junk in the closet, you should do some spring maintenance on your car. Here are five spring service tips to get you started.

Wash your car

Starting with the roof, wash away all the dirt and road grime that has built-up over the winter. Don’t forget to clean the undercarriage.

Clean the interior

The first step in cleaning your car is to take everything out of it. Throw away any trash and only put essential items back inside. Vacuum your car, making sure to get in between crevices in the seats. Wipe down all the hard surfaces with cleaning wipes or spray.

Get new windshield wipers

You should replace your windshield wipers every 6-12 months. Over time, the rubber can dry and harden, and thus will not clean your windshield as well as they used to.

Catch up on maintenance

Schedule a service appointment with Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac to get your car back on track with maintenance. We can change the oil, check the filters, level off your fluids, and do any other maintenance your car might need.

Inspect your tires

Check the tires to make sure they are properly inflated, and the tread hasn’t worn down too thin.

Before you start your summer in Ruston, Louisiana, bring your car to Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC. A quick check-up can save you plenty of trouble.
