2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Overview

The Tahoe, one of Chevrolet’s long-running large SUVs, gets a full redesign on a new platform for 2021. The Tahoe was last redesigned in 2015. This SUV competes in a small but tight-knit segment comprised of rivals such as the Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator, Toyota Sequoia, corporate cousin GMC Yukon, and sibling Chevrolet Suburban.

Although the Tahoe is larger than ever, large windows and an available panoramic roof provide visual balance, and standard LED lighting provides a premium look. Standard wheels measure 18 inches on LS and LT trims, 20 inches on Premier and Z71 versions, and 22 on top-end RST and High Country. A dual exhaust distinguishes the Premier and High Country as well. Nine exterior colors will be available, including the new Empire Beige Metallic, Cherry Bomb Tintcoat, and Darkmoon Blue Metallic.

The Tahoe offers two familiar yet updated powertrains, along with a new option. A 5.3-liter V8 rated for 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque serves as the base option, and a 6.2-liter V8, rated for 420 hp and 460 lb-ft, is optional. A Duramax inline-six turbodiesel engine, rated for 277 hp and 460 lb-ft, is also in the lineup. A new 10-speed automatic transmission is standard with all three engines, and for the first time, the Tahoe is available with an adaptive air suspension. Fuel-economy figures will be available closer to launch.

The Tahoe features 66 percent more cargo space and 40 percent more third-row legroom than the previous model, despite an overall length increase of just 4 percent. The Tahoe also now features a sliding second-row seat and wider rear doors for easy access. It has six trim levels, starting with the base LS and moderately upgraded LT. From there, buyers can opt for the truck-inspired RST, which gets exclusive seating with contrast stitching. The Z71 features improved off-road capability and styling. Premier offers more standard tech and comfort features, such as 12-way power heated and cooled front seats and a heated steering wheel. High Country comes standard with the 6.2-liter engine and features such as a head-up display.

The Tahoe’s new infotainment system features a standard 10-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a WiFi hotspot. A 4.2-inch information display is standard, and an 8-inch configurable information display is available. Wireless device charging is standard on all but the base LS model. For navigation and a 10-speaker Bose audio system, look to the Premier trim. A second- and third-row entertainment system with dual 12.6-inch touchscreens is available.

Though we won’t have crash test ratings for some time, Chevrolet says the Tahoe is loaded with safety features. The Tahoe gets an industry-first trailering label, placed inside the driver’s door, to help drivers understand towing requirements and capabilities. Standard features include automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, front pedestrian braking, rear park assist, an HD reversing camera, and hitch guidance for towing. Options include HD surround vision, lane-change alert, lane-keep assist, front and rear park assist, and rear-pedestrian alert.

The Chevrolet Tahoe gives full-size SUV shoppers something new to think about. It goes on sale in mid-2020 alongside the redesigned Chevy Suburban, both of which will be manufactured in General Motors’ production facility in Arlington, Texas.
