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.
