2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Shows Off Its Diesel Power

Chevrolet Tahoe’s New Diesel Options

In North America, diesel engines usually aren’t considered the most appealing engine option and this was especially true in the 1970s. During this time, General Motors made the transition from a gas V-8 engine to a diesel for its (now deceased) Oldsmobile brand. These engines resulted in miserable reliability issues, mainly involving head bolts that had too much pressure from the diesel compression.

Many years later (in 2001) the American automaker made the introduction of its powerful and tough Duramax diesel V-8 for its heavy-duty truck, which certainly made up for Olddie’s failure. Even more fascinating is the recent installment of light-duty Duramax inline-six on trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, and gradually on all of the company’s remodeled full-sized SUVs, one of them being the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe.

The new lake-named vehicle will be sporting a turbocharged 3.0-liter Duramax, one out of the three available engines. Base models already have an impressive boost with 355 horsepower on a 5.3-liter V-8, while the top-tier High Country is geared up by a standard 6.2-liter with 420 horsepower. The diesel will have 277 horsepower, which is the least of the group, however, it’s 460 lb-ft of torque matches the 6.2’s engine.

Oftentimes, diesel engines come at a heftier cost, one of the reasons being that they integrate pricy exhaust-treatment systems keep their sootier emissions composed, however, that won’t be the case this time around. High Country trims, for example, include a $1500 credit as opposed to the bigger V-8. Lesser models only have a $995 line item and the most affordable Tahoe with the Duramax has a starting price of $53,295, (plus destination fee). At the same time, the inclusive High Country model starts at $69,395, (plus destination fee). Of course, these prices don’t take into account the optional equipment.

Great torque output is usually an implication for massive towing capabilities. The 3.0-liter Duramax rates the least weight out of the Tahoe’s powertrains, but it’s 8200 lb rating is still strong and tough enough to make an impact. 

Choosing the Duramax won’t significantly change the driving behavior of the SUV. According to one car reviewer, their Tahoe model that was paired with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission made smooth and swift shuffles and reached 60 mph in 7.8 seconds; 5.8-liter powered models were only a second faster, and 6.2’s being the fastest.

The new diesel engine option isn’t just powerful, it’s also highly capable during the winter months. Unlike older engines, the 3.0-liter makes use of a fresh coolant-control system to be able to endure freezing temperatures. The Duramax’s computer manages flow to the head, engine block, oil, transmission cooler, cabin heater, cooler, as well as low and high-pressure exhaust-gas recirculation coolers. This enables the engine to send warm coolant to the cabin heater and with necessary haste. 

As one should expect with any big and bad SUV of General Motors, the diesel Tahoe has an independent rear suspension, which allows passengers to have their own personal space and also betters the quality of the ride as opposed to the previous solid-rear-axle system. On top of this, the interior quality and design have received a significant upgrade both aesthetically and comfort-wise. However, nothing compares to the car’s new and efficient diesel engine.

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe was made by engineers to offer customers more than the Tahoe ever has before. There was a reason to build the next-generation Tahoe to be a fully versatile SUV; that’s what the market expects today. One thing that many customers want is the ability to offer guests comfort, but the flexibility to provide more than lots of space. The goal by Chevrolet was to push the boundaries to present drivers with the ability to take the Tahoe off traditional roads and give the owners of the vehicle more. This is how the new Air Ride Adaptive Suspension option, which is available on High Country and Z71 trim levels, came to be.

More On the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

Now, we’re getting a look at how the 2021 Tahoe air suspension works in a new video made by Chevrolet, showing off the all-new Tahoe. Readers can learn about the process the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe undergoes to help make the air suspension work properly. There are exactly four modes that are offered with the 2021 Tahoe air suspension system. Owners have the choice to modify the vehicle ride height to fit the conditions, with a maximum raise up to four inches. The system is officially known as Air Ride Adaptive Suspension.

The Maximum Ground Clearance setting lifts the new Chevrolet Tahoe to assist and navigate any trails without issue, quickly raising the vehicle with the simple turn of a knob. Allowing the vehicle to go down to normal ride height is quite simple with a turn of the knob, and the suspension will go back down to the standard ride height. Drivers are able to enjoy their vehicle more so than ever before with the convenience of air suspension. Adapting to new trails easily will make driving easier.

Further Features of the Air Suspension

Drivers gain the perks of the 2021 Tahoe air suspension that will adjust the ride height on the highway to improve fuel efficiency. Owners can raise the suspension to make it easier to properly align with a trailer hitch, or lower the suspension if needed. The automatic suspension features automatic load leveling at all four corners. The engineers really did their part to allow the technology to provide drivers with an easy way to adapt to driving. The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is built on the GM T1 vehicle architecture and includes a brand new independent multilink rear suspension design. The 2021 Tahoe air suspension system is not expected to be ready until late in 2020. For those that can’t wait to ride a new Chevrolet vehicle, or a pre-owned Chevrolet, we are ready to make the process an easy one.
