Tuesday night (December 10, 2019), the 2021 versions of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban were revealed by General Motors. They come with more advanced technology, they are longer and roomier than before and come with a wider range of choices for customers.
According to Kelly Blue Book, the two vehicles make up more than 40% of America’s non-luxury full-size SUV market.
As automakers are finding ways to incorporate autonomous and all-electric vehicles onto the city streets, the earnings of the vehicles are being used to assist in financing this project, this includes at least 20 new EV’s internationally by 2023.
Elements of the remodeled Chevrolet Silverado pickup inspires some designs onto the new SUVs such as the boomerang LED signature lights and large and striking grilles with horizontal bars behind Chevy’s emblem.
According to officials, the 2021 vehicles feature redesigned interiors with far greater interior space than current models, including 66% more cargo room, specifically behind the third row for the 2021 Tahoe and 19% more cargo space behind the first row of the 2021 Suburban.
As presented in the Chevrolet Silverado, three engine options will be offered: a 5.3-liter V-8 with 355 hp, 6.2-liter V-8 with 420 hp and a new 3.0-liter diesel engine, with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed transmission will be matched with all engines.
The interior also embeds standard 10-inch infotainment screens and 15-inch Windshield Heads Up display (optional) for drivers, as well as 12.6-inch touchscreens for rear seats.
Tim Herrick, General Motors vice president of global product programs, described the remodeled automobiles as “the ultimate SUVs.” “On-road and -off, the all-new Suburban and Tahoe play much bigger but actually drive much smaller than before,” he said during the unveiling Tuesday night. “They offer the best of both roads,” referring to capability and handling, including a new optional air suspension system.
It is expected that the Chevy’s Tahoe and Suburban will arrive in U.S dealerships by the middle of next year with six trims including a new top-end High Country model. Pricing has not been announced, however, the starting price of current Tahoe models range from about $50,000 to $69,500. Starting prices for the Suburban currently starts between about $53,000 and $72,500.
According to General Motors, the SUVs offer 30 safety and driver convenience technologies like the standard automatic emergency braking, as well as the optional HD surround view and a rear pedestrian alert system.
As told by officials to CNBC, the new system and electrical infrastructure of the vehicles are adept at handling General Motors Super Cruise highway driver-assist system. On the flip side, the technology will not be initially offered on the SUVs.
Mark Reuss, president of General Motors, it is expected by the automaker for the 2021 SUVs to “continue to dominate their segment.” “We are here to win. Chevrolet created the template for the modern SUV in 1935. In doing so, it created the template for winning that we’re still following today,” Reuss said during the unveiling Tuesday night. “These all-new versions will be just as dominant as they were the day they were introduced.”
By early next year, remodeled versions of the Yukon and Escalade are expected to be revealed.
