The 2022 Chevy Tahoe’s Greatest Hits

Monday, February 14th, 2022

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is a force to be reckoned with. This full-size SUV can easily haul families and all of their cargo supplies without fear of being cramped. It blends in well with the other aristocrats at high-end restaurants.

New features include a standard 12-inch digital driver information display, Buckle to Drive technology, Reverse Automatic Braking and Enhanced Trailer View available on the two upper trims, optional Sports Performance Package on the RST, and the Off-Road Performance package offered on the Z71.

Interior

As one may be able to guess from the exterior, the Tahoe’s cabin is indeed spacious, with plenty of room within its three rows and unbeatable comfort. There is plenty of room offered on the second-row seats, especially with its ability to slide and recline during long road trips. There are even optional dual 12.6-inch infotainment screens. 

The independent rear suspension is a major plus for this SUV, as this is useful in expanding cargo space. Luggage space amounts to 25.5 cubic feet, only to expand to 72.6 cubic feet when seats from the third row. Second-row seats can also make a split, increasing the cargo room to an incredible 122.9 cubic feet of space. Clearly, this model is no one-trick pony.

Standard Features

The base-level LS trim invites standard features like 8-inch alloy wheels, LED exterior lighting, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, side steps, keyless entry/ignition, remote start, 3-zone automatic climate control, cloth upholstery, two 120-volt outlets, programmable Teen Driver key, and power-adjustable front seats.

Safety features are plentiful with standard forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assistance/lane-departure warning, rear seat reminder, front/rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, and even the new Buckle to Drive.

Passengers can enjoy comforts like wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, Wi-Fi, six USB ports, satellite radio, and Bluetooth.

While all of these features are great, it’s still recommended to at least upgrade to the LT, as this will welcome the new-for-2022 12-inch digital driver information display, memory settings for the driver’s seat, heated front seats, self-dimming rearview mirror, universal garage door opener, hands-free liftgate operation, and wireless charging. This trim also has the Bose 9-speaker audio system and navigation.

V8 Engine and Performance

The 2022 Tahoe offers three powertrains: 5.3-liter V8 (standard), 6.2-liter V8, and the 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel. High Country’s 6.2-liter has the best capability regarding speed and strength, delivering an output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It’s also optional on the RST, Z71, and Premier models.

The 10-speed automatic transmission takes advantage of this power by making quick yet inconspicuous shifts. These components manage to provide a stunning performance without feeling too busy. 

Another impressive feature is the SUV’s towing capability. Again with the 6.2-L, the four-wheel-drive (4WD) model can haul up to 8,100 lbs, and when rightfully geared, it can max out at 8,400 lbs.

Miami Lakes Chevy

When it comes to the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe, the world is truly your oyster. There are also plenty of factory options that can be had such as the Driver Alert Package (LT, RST, and Z71), new Off-Road Performance package (Z71), and new Reverse Automaking Braking (Premier and High Country).

There is even a Luxury package with a 360-degree camera system and rear pedestrian alert, plus self-dimming side mirrors, power-adjustable steering column, heated steering wheel, and heated outboard second-row seats (three higher trims).

You can enjoy all of these features by making your purchase of the latest Tahoe SUV at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide range of vehicles from the brand ranging in various shapes and sizes. Those who are interested in this vehicle can simply view our online new car inventory for assistance.

J.D. Power Esteems The Chevy Tahoe With Its 2022 ALG Residual Value Award

Monday, December 6th, 2021

The Chevrolet Tahoe was acknowledged by American data analytics and consumer intelligence company, J.D.Power in the establishment’s recent U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards for 2022.

In determining the vehicles deemed worthy of acknowledgment for the J.D’s Power Awards, car models looked to have the most potential in holding the highest percentage of their MSRP after three years of ownership are evaluated. These awards were accessed by ALG, a division of J.D. Power.

Chevrolet’s full-size SUV was ranked highest in the Fullsize Utility segment of the recognitions. Other notable competitors include the Subaru Forester in the Compact Utility segment, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer in the Premium Fullsize Utility Segment, and the Ford Bronco in the Off-Road Utility segment.

For the latest 2022 Residual Value Awards, J.D. Power had a total of 284 different models assessed, with 29 individual vehicle segments acknowledged. On top of this, the data analytics company evaluated 16 different brands for awards in either the Mass Market segment or the Premium segment, with the former segment being secured by Honda, and the Lexus getting the win in the latter.

J.D. calls attention to the fact that there are a number of factors to consider when accessing the residual value of a vehicle over a multi-year lease term. A few examples involve mileage, quality and reliability, equipped options, and the broader macroeconomic environment.

“Accurately forecasting residual values in the auto industry is a key factor in assessing an estimated $225 billion lease portfolio of vehicles in the United States,” said vice president of ALG, Eric Lyman. “The brands and vehicle models that rise to the top demonstrate that they score well across the award program’s criteria, including manufacturers’ superior design and quality.”

One should be reminded that the 2022 Chevy Tahoe is in its second model year for the 5th-gen nameplate, derived from General Motors T1 body-on-frame platform. Powertrain options include the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L82 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. GM’s Arlington assembly plant in Arlington, Texas will host the production of this award-winning SUV, and when the time comes for the car to hit dealers…

Come and visit Miami Lakes Chevrolet, we carry a wide variety of vehicles from the car company including Tahoe SUVs. The newest model comes with standard features like 18-inch alloy wheels, LED exterior lighting, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, side steps, keyless entry/ignition, remote start, 3-zone automatic climate control, cloth upholstery, two 120-volt outlets, programmable Teen Driver key, and power-adjustable front seats on the lowest trim. 

It also comes with entertainments like a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, Wi-Fi, six USB ports (including Type-C), satellite radio, and Bluetooth. Safety features also encompass forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assistance/lane-departure warning, rear seat reminder, front/rear parking sensors, and automatic high beams.

5 Sensational Features of The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe

Thursday, November 11th, 2021

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that SUVs and crossovers have all but taken over the car market, and each year this interest in these types of vehicles grows even more, with the Chevrolet Tahoe serving as one of the main leads in its segment. This full-sized SUV is back for the 2022 model year, and it’s introducing a more powerful engine and a slew of new and exciting features. Here are 5 Sensational Features of The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe!

Expanded 6.2-Liter V8 Engine

The base engine on the upcoming Tahoe is a 5.3-liter V8, which has an incredible output of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Then for daredevils, Chevrolet also provides its Tahoe buyers with the option of a larger 6.2-liter V8 that produces a magnificent 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Even still, the car still manages to get a combined average of 21 mpg.

Transparent Trailer View

Due to the length and weight distribution of a trailer, towing these campers can prove to be quite difficult for driving, and even more so with the blocked view. In the same way as its kinsman, the GMC Sierra, the new Tahoe implements a translucent trailer view system, which ensures that the driver can see through the trailer by the use of attachable cameras. This is together with the 13 available camera views surrounding the vehicles, making dead angles virtually impossible when driving.

Seamless Infotainment System With Google services

The Chevrolet company is very adept in providing advanced in-cabin features, particularly when it comes to infotainment. This is even more expected in its luxury vehicles like the Tahoe. For this model year, this concept is taken even further with its effective stand-alone technology that necessitates very little connection with your phone due to the built-in Google functionality. Some examples include Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.

Android users will also appreciate the Android Auto systems, which enables one to download his or her apps into the infotainment system, making them accessible through the 10.2-inch touchscreen. This helps to alleviate the distraction of messing with your phone while zooming on the freeway.

Magnetic Ride Control (MRC)

The Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) is an incredibly innovative technology of the automaker. This system adapts the shock-absorbing resistance of the Tahoe to the road condition in real-time. This is contrary to regular mechanical components used in traditional suspension and shock absorbers, the MRC uses monotube dampers full of magnetorheological fluid.

The density of the fluid either increases or decreases according to what is required in the reaction to the wheel forces while driving on various terrains and handled by a set of sensors and an electronic control unit. The MRC is tremendously swift and precise, making driving in any condition stress-free.

8,400-Pound Towing Capacity

The 2022 Tahoe’s 6.2-liter V8 engine isn’t just fast, it’s also quite mighty, with its towing ability amounting to a maximum of 8,400 lbs. A capacity like this, taking long camping trips all summer long will become like second nature.

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Dare To Indulge You Just A Bit More

Tuesday, October 5th, 2021

The Chevrolet company is preparing to revamp their Tahoe and Suburban SUVs for their 2022 model, but don’t worry, they aren’t throwing out the baby with the bath water. Instead, the automaker is simply making their formula more agreeable to a larger crowd, and they’re doing this by making their 6.2-L V8 engine more available. While this motor was previously reserved as the standard engine on the top-ranking High Country trim, and not even an option on the others, it’s now being unlocked on the RST, Z71, and Premier levels. Now more buyers will get to enjoy a thrilling ride with the powertrains output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Last month (September 10th), we discussed that this engine might require additional options, with the exclusion of the Premier. The Premier model with the V8 motor has a standalone option. At the same time, RST buyers will need to get the Sport Performance Package, while buyers of the Z71 will have to get either the Z71 Off-Road Package or mixture of packages such as Off-Road Performance, Off-Road Capability, Max Trailering, and Luxury. 

On the Z71 trim, the new electronic limited-slip differential is included in the Off-Road Performance Package, which results in better responsiveness from the rear wheels while driving when the roads are slippery. Those who opt for this package also means that they’ll get the Max Trailering and Luxury Packages too.

The availability of other two engine options in the lineup don’t change, specifically the 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft, and the 3.0-liter diesel with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft.

Inhouse, beginning with the LT model and up, the gauge cluster expands to a fully digital 12-3 inch display with four preset configurations. Google Automotive has been implemented into the vehicle systems for better integration of particular apps and services. This involves voice commands, which means without plugging in his or her phone, passengers can use Google Assistnt’s voice control to make changes, such as with the stereo volume, the radio stations, or the climate control. The 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen is brought over, but it will show up to 13 different camera angles when matched with a trailer that it’s compatible with, and a suitable Trailering package. If connected, these images include a a rear trailer view, picture-in-picture side view, and the scene inside a trailer

As part of the brand’s Safety Assist Suite, all trims are geared with Front and Rear Park Assist and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also comes with five surplus driver assist technologies, and even Buckle to Drive. There are five new designs available on particular trims, while each Tahoe and Suburban have three new colors for buyers to select from: Auburn Metallic, Dark Ash Metallic, and Evergreen Gray Metallic.

It’s worth noting that ordering some of these options might be contingent on the current happenings regarding the chip shortage, possibly having you faced with either lessening some items off your shopping list or just being patient. The 2022 Tahoe and Suburban will begin their production at General Motors Arlington, Texas facility in October, with pricing being announced at a later date.

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Set The Standard For Full-Size SUVs

Friday, September 10th, 2021

New Features For 2022

As with many automakers, the Chevrolet company performed a few nips and tucks on their new vehicles, particularly the upcoming Tahoe SUV and its extended Suburban sibling. Improvements that have been made the inside (all but base LS model) include a new 12-inch digital gauge display fenced in by a conventional analog tacho- and speedometer. These trims also receive a standard navigation system from the 10.2-inch central infotainment touchscreen. Additional standard features include Lane-Keeping Assist and parking sensors. At the same time, Reverse Automatic Braking is included in the high-ranking trims’ Enhanced Display and Alert package. Lastly, the 6.2-liter V8 option stretches to the ZR1, RST and Premier models, but with the exclusion of the Premier, you’ll need to select one or more packages.

Size Increase and Cargo Capacity

Last year, parent company, General Motors gave their full-size SUVs a complete revamp after nearly thirty years. These enhancements included a highly-anticipated switch to the independent rear suspension, which in turn allowed for extra interior space and cargo capacity. The 2022 Tahoe increased its overall length by 6.7 inches, along with 4.9 inches of its wheelbase. Meanwhile, the Suburban added 1.3 inches to its length and an incredible 4.1 inches to its wheelbase.

The Tahoe’s interior gains 3 inches of legroom in the second row, and a surplus of 10.1 inches in the third row partly due to the lower floor. The Surban also increases its space by a bit over 2 inches of legroom in each row.

Cargo space also made great improvements. In the Tahoe SUV, cargo measurements have increased by 10.2 cubic feet (specifically 25.5 cubes), while the Suburban increased its space by 2.2 cubic feet (overall 41.5 cubes).

Performance and Towing Specifications

There are three different engine types to pick for the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban. The entry-level motor is a naturally aspirated 5.3-liter V8, which has an output of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission and has an available rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Optional on the Z71, RST, Premier and High Country models is another naturally aspirated V8, but a 6.2-liter. It musters up 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. As with the 5.3-liter, it includes the same type of automatic and drive systems.

Additionally, the automaker is offering a unique diesel 3.0-liter inline-six engine, which is only one like in its class. It has an output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and also shares the 10-speed automatic.

Towing capacities range from 7,500 and 8,000 lbs subject to body style, engine, and drivetrain. The tow package also increases capacity with each model, but only by a small margin.

Available Features

Basic gear that you’ll find in the beloved Chevrolet SUVs are the 5.3-liter V8, engine and transmission coolers, and a limited-slip differential. External features involve 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, running boards, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and remote start. Internal gadgets encompass three-zone climate control, eight-way power driver seat and six-way power passenger seat, the 10-inch infotainment screen, 4.2-inch screen in the instrument cluster, a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, driver assist features.

On higher trims, like the Z71, drivers get to revel in the charming and exclusive front fascia and bumper, which provides the car with a more aggressive appearance. It also includes hill-descent control, 20-inch wheels, all-terrain tires and a skid plate. Then, the luxurious High Country comes with the 6.2-liter V8, magnetic and air suspension, 22-inch wheels, 360-degree cameras, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane keep assist, rear camera mirror, leather heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, power-folding rear seats, a large instrument panel screen and head-up display, 10-speaker Bose sound system, and wireless phone charging.

On top of this, there are optional towing assist on both SUVs, which have cameras that have up to nine different views for maneuvering and monitoring one’s trailer. They are standard with a trailer guidance feature along with a rear-view camera. There’s even an app on the infotainment system that allows users to store information about their trailer and perform various checks as they hook up the motor home.

Safety and Driver Assist Features

At last, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban advocate for safety as they provide owners with an array of technologies, such as the standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rear-seat reminder. Optional technologies (standard on higher trims) include reverse automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.

2022 Chevy Tahoe Receives a Production Date

Friday, July 16th, 2021

A revamped 2021 Chevy Tahoe was introduced recently, bringing the iconic SUV to its fifth generation. Now, GM is preparing to work on a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that will hopefully surpass its predecessor. Starting October 4th, 2021, GM will begin production on the next iteration of the large SUV. The only question is, how will GM improve upon its acclaimed 2021 Chevy Tahoe? According to the Chevrolet site, “you make it the most versatile and advanced Tahoe ever– with a bigger, more spacious cabin, better ride and handling, and a commanding presence that’s impossible to ignore.”

The 2021 Chevy Tahoe recently underwent a makeover that added more passenger and cargo room. Alongside this, the full-size SUV got a cabin and interior redesign along with an improved infotainment system. Capable of fitting 8 people, the revamped 2021 Chevy Tahoe offers a lot for those who enjoy a powerful but comfortable SUV. 

Since the 2021 Chevy Tahoe received major changes and improvements recently, new additions to the 2022 model are likely to be minor. Either new colors or additions to the instrument cluster and infotainment system can be expected. 

Speculation About the 2022 Chevy Tahoe

Speculation around the 2022 Chevy Tahoe has given way to several theories: 1) GM makes a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that has true all-terrain capabilities, 2) GM makes a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that is off-road oriented, 3) GM makes a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that is performance-tuned. Whichever direction GM decides to take, Chevy Tahoe fans will not be disappointed. 

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe will likely use the new T1 platform that was introduced in 2019. Used for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the T1 platform was a newly engineered platform intended for full-size body-on-frame models. If the 2022 Chevy Tahoe makes use of this platform,  it will enjoy better handling and stability. 

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe will likely feature a similar engine to the 2021 Tahoe. A 5.4L V9 L84 gasoline engine comes standard from the EcoTec3 family. It comes with a rating of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Chevy Tahoe trims like the High Country level will most likely feature a 6.2L V8 L87 exclusive engine. It will come with 420 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. The rest of the trims except for the Z71 will offer a 3.0L I6 LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax which will offer 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. All three engines will come with GM’s Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive will be standard on most trims except for the Z71. There may also be an option for four-wheel drive on certain trims. 

2022 Chevy Tahoe Trims

Those interested in the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe will be happy to know that several distinct trims will be available. For those seeking an off-roader style SUV, the Z71 trim will be ideal. Starting at $60,495 MSRP (plus destination fee), the Z71 will come with four-wheel drive and off-road-ready features like a heavy-duty air filter, recovery hooks, a transfer case, and 20-inch all-terrain tires. 

The High Country trim will be good for those seeking a more performance-oriented SUV. Starting at $69,700 MSRP (plus destination fee), the High Country trim will feature a more powerful 6.2L V8 engine. It will also come with 22-inch wheels, a 15-inch head-up display, rear pedestrian alerts, and an HD surround vision camera. 

The Premier trim is for those looking for a higher standard of comfort and luxury. Starting at $63,895 MSRP (plus destination fee), the Premier trim comes with features like magnetic ride control and power tilt steering. It will feature an 8-inch driver information display and some advanced safety features like lane-keep assist and lane-change alerts.

As indicated by Q1 2021 sale numbers, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has quickly become a fan favorite in the full-size SUV sector. With over 23,000 units sold, the Chevy Tahoe managed to secure a place at the top. Now with the announcement of a new 2022 Chevy Tahoe in the works, GM is hoping to further its lead in the SUV market.

The Diesel Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Show That They’re Still Hot Stuff With Recent Sales

Tuesday, June 8th, 2021

Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Excel In Diesel Sales

As with gasoline power plants, diesel motors are now being seen as being on the verge of extinction due to the ever-growing rise of electric-powered vehicles. Major automakers have been seeking to revamp their entire lineup to eventually become fully electric in the next few years, with Hyundai for example, saying that it will stop producing diesel engines altogether. 

From the environmental standpoint, this seems like a rather positive transition in the automotive industry, but one should take into account the importance of diesels, specifically in large trucks and SUVs. These types of motors typically have a high torque output and also have sensible fuel economy numbers, which still makes them great options. In 2020, General Motors (GM) presented its newborn 3.0-liter Duramax six-cylinder turbodiesel in its Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Chevrolet Suburban SUVs. As proven by their recent sales figures, this move was indeed the right one.

Both the diesel-operated Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have recently experienced an increase in sales. Towards the end of April, the Duramax power plant collected six percent of all Tahoe sales, as well as eight percent for the Suburban. Seeing that the SUVs entered production, this is counted as the highest take rate for the Duramax engine. In other words, the interest in this vehicle is translating into actual sales, resulting in one of their best model years.

The 3.0-liter unit has a solid output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, combined with a reasonable amount of consumption. In the full-sized Tahoe, figures from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) diesel put out 21/28/24 mpg city/highway/combined.

By contrast, the RWD 5.3-liter V8 Tahoe will only muster EPA figures 16/20/18 mpg throughout the same cycles. There are efficiency gains that are similar for the Suburban, and having said that, the Duramax engine is a tad more expensive. On the Tahoe’s LS trim, it would cost you an extra $996 for the diesel motor. That might seem fairly reasonable if you take into account what you’ll save at gas stations (considering if you don’t really need a V8). Then, for the first time in two decades, the Escalade offers a 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine, which is just as enticing to potential buyers since they don’t have to pay more for it.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

If you really want to see what the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban has to offer, check out our stash at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of Chevrolet SUVs, crossovers, trucks, and even hatchbacks.

When buying the Tahoe or Suburban, you’ll have access to a plethora of advanced features like premium cloth seating, tri-zone climate control, remote engine start, 8-way power front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a mechanical limited-slip differential, as well as entertainment features like a 10-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, 6-speaker audio system, 4G LTE and in-vehicle Wi-Fi.

The 2021 Tahoe and Suburban Model Are All The Rage Among Chevrolet Buyers

Wednesday, March 24th, 2021

The New Kids On The Block 

The latest and greatest 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, as well as the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban full-size SUVs are selling like hotcakes on the dealership lots, especially with one particular trim level that seems to be getting all the buzz.

Last month, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban RST trim level only stayed on dealership lots for an average of 18 days, which is considered pretty darn well in the U.S market, since the typical time period for a car’s stay would be around 60 days. Obviously, this demand is considered to be outrageously good…and now on a first-come-first-serve sort of basis. Regarding the RST model, this demand is even greater.

Chevrolet’s RST trim is comparable to that of their LT that it’s built upon, however, its design has a bit more edge and sports the Rally Street Truck (RST) title. The automaker responded to the popularity and overall demand from its customers for a more street-racer style by tacking on 22-inch High Gloss Black painted wheels as a standard, as well as a distinctive front fascia involving a black icy finish on the grille, black on black-chrome trim (for the exterior) and a range of RST-exclusive features in-house, with divergent stitching.

Both the Tahoe and Suburban were fully overhauled for this model year, and are currently in the initial stages of their 5th and twelve generation actions, in that order. The Suburban SUV sets the record for being the longest continually used nameplate, as it was first initiated in the market by 1935. The two trucks are essentially twins, with the exception that the Suburban is 15 inches longer than the Tahoe at 225.7 inches.

For both models, buyers have the choice of getting the 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine from the EcoTec3 group, which has an incredible output of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The second option is the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax, which produces a lesser 277 horsepower but an improved 460 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines team up with the brand’s Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. One also has the option of rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Both SUVs have accomplished strong sales and growth in North America, particularly in the fourth quarter of 2020 by over 30 percent. The transition to the new generation earlier that year, in addition to a market slump of many businesses due to the coronavirus pandemic, resulted in sales dropping considerably for a year, such as with the Tahoe at 88,238 and Suburban at 37,636, which will certainly see a resurgence in 2021.

The Chevrolet RST has a starting price of $58,395, (plus destination fee) for RWDs equipped with the 5.3L V8 engine. The mirroring Suburban RST has a starting price of 61,095, (plus destination fee).

The 2021 Chevrolet SUV Lineup: Everything To Expect For The New Year

Monday, December 21st, 2020

 

Chevrolet is offering a package deal when it comes to its compact crossover, full-size SUVs, and utility vehicles for its 2021 model year. New features to expect are pretty minor but also significant, like with special editions and fresh colors, including updates to the engine and trim levels. At the same time, the Tahoe and Suburban will get a complete makeover. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2021 Chevrolet SUV lineup!

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Now more than ever, subcompact crossovers are becoming all the rage for SUV lovers, and Chevrolet doesn’t disappoint the growing demand for one. The new 2021 Trailblazer is the brand’s entry-level SUV and has a front face that resembles a bit like its sporty cousin, the Camaro. The price seems pretty reasonable at just under $20,000, (plus the destination fee). Two engine choices that are offered include a 1.2-liter engine with 137 horsepower or a 1.3-liter engine with 155 horsepower.

2021 Chevrolet Trax

Chevrolet has another subcompact crossover that’s even smaller than the Trailblazer, which is the 2021 Trax. This model may a bit short but not in its features. The car comes with two new special editions available on the LT trim. The Sport Edition is decked out in black exterior accents, whilst the Midnight Edition fuses black accents with a Mosaic Black Metallic paint color. This car will be a breeze to park and will allow its passengers to take advantage of its storage space by its generous amount of cubbies.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is a compact sports utility model with a refreshed design for 2021. However, the company revealed that the SUV will really be a 2022 model since the plans for their changes have been pushed back. What you need to know is that the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine has been removed, and for now it’s being replaced by the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. One shouldn’t fret too much about this, as the 1.5-liter is expected to make a comeback when the new Equinox comes out.

This almost-2021 vehicle will now have an available leather package on the LT trim, which includes black perforated leather-appointed seats, memory settings, an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror, and outside heated power-adjustable mirrors with auto-dimming.

2021 Chevrolet Blazer

The color palette on the 2021 Blazer is getting a bit of a switch-up, as colors like Pewter Metallic, Iron Gray Metallic, Cayenne Orange Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat are tagging along.

The brand’s Safety Assist package gift wraps automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, following distance indicator, and auto high-beams. These goodies come standard on the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trims.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse

The full-size Chevrolet Traverse is also getting a facelift for 2022 and only minute changes for 2021. Chevrolet’s Safety Assist will outplace the Driver Conference II package and will be standard on the RS, Premier, and High Country. It will also be available on LT.

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

The restyled Tahoe not only joins a new platform but is also winning with an independent rear suspension and a better ride quality. This SUV is 6.7 inches longer than before and also has increased in its wheelbase.  Third-row passengers now have 40 percent more legroom and 66 percent more cargo volume. Front-seat passengers will also enjoy the 10.2-inch touchscreen.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban

The big and bad Suburban will share the same features as the Tahoe, as well as technologies, but one thing that makes it stand out is that the improvement in the interior space. The Suburban provides more legroom and cargo volume than its predecessor, specifically in the second-and third-row.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

At long last, Chevrolet is bringing on an electric crossover to their lineup. The production of the Bolt EUV will start in 2021, and based on the photos we’ve seen so far, it’s even more impressive than the current Bolt hatchback, with its increase in size and posher design. This car will also have a dashboard design that is more user-friend, as well as a new touchscreen and enhanced interior materials. The brand’s Super Cruise will also prove to be an asset to drivers once they get on the highway.
