The “twins” also give shoppers the option of getting the turbodiesel 3.0L I6 LM2 Duramax. As a standard, all three engines can be paired up with the General Motors 10-speed automatic transmission for both 2021 trucks, and are offered with RWD and 4WD.
Going past the mechanics, the Suburban and Tahoe offer the exact trim levels, arranged from base to most exclusive: LS, LT, Z71, RST, Premier, and High Country; You’ll also find that equipment and options are comparable.

Now let’s get into what’s fraternal. The best way to describe what makes the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe different is simply their sizes.
