After redesigning the Silverado and the Silverado HD, Chevrolet now turned its attention to the Suburban and Tahoe.. The two models have been announced today and will be put on sale in mid-2020.
The 2021 SUburban has been updated to offer the most interior space of any SUV, exclusive technologies and features, and the best driving dynamics in the full-size segment. In order for this to happen the wheelbase has been increased by 4.1 inches, while legroom for both the second- and third-row passengers, and maximum cargo volume were also increased by 19%.
Under the hood the 2021 Suburban offers a standard 5.3-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 355 horsepower. This version comes standard for LS, LT, Z71, RST and Premier models. The High Country version gets a 6.2 liter V-8 engine rated at 420 horsepower. All models can also be ordered with an optional Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel that delivers a total of 277 horsepower and 460 pounds feet of torque.
The 2021 Suburban is offered with a newly developed chassis that integrates the longer wheelbase spans and the independent multilink rear suspension. Also, all models are offered with Air Ride Adaptive Suspension system and Magnetic Ride Control. Chevrolet is also offering a Max Trailering package that includes 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 exterior of the 2021 Suburban was also heavily revised, so the SUV is now offering a bolder appearance. It comes with standard LED headlamps and LED taillamps, an active front grille shutters that close at certain times on the highway to enhance aerodynamics and dual exhaust on Premier and High Country models.
Customers can choose between nine exterior color, including three all-new colors: Empire Beige Metallic, Cherry Bomb Tintcoat and Darkmoon Blue Metallic and a choice of 18-,20- or 22-in wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires.
The interior was also heavily revised and now offers expanded glass areas – making the SUV brighter. Chevrolet offers an available panoramic sunroof, larger displays, more connectivity options and a new rear-seat media system. As standard the 2021 Suburban is offering a 10-inch-diagonal color touchscreen, while a 15-inch diagonal Head-Up Display is offered as standard on High Country and available on Premier. The rear-seat media pack includes dual 12.6-inch-diagonal LCD touchscreens, with each screen offering independent connections, so passengers can watch different content on each side.
