2021 Chevy Tahoe & Suburban | The Big Get Even Bigger | Steve Hammes

Earlier this decade, pundits predicted that
a gallon of gas would cost more than $5 a gallon by now. Well, they were wrong. Really wrong. And so the SUVs which were declared dead and
almost buried have experienced a boon like never before. Case in point the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe
and Suburban. Already renowned for their massive size, both
have gotten bigger: the Tahoe is a whopping 6.7” longer while the garage-busting Suburban
gains 1.3”. This leads to huge increases in max cargo
room and legroom in all 3 rows finally making the most efficient use of these vehicles’
gargantuan footprints. For the first time, the Tahoe and Suburban’s
second-row seat can slide, adjusting approximately 10 inches fore and aft. Both the second- and third-row seats also
fold more easily, and the load floor is now both flatter and lower than prior models – improving
ease of use. And GM’s oft criticized interior design
has been addressed with an SUV-specific offering featuring up to 5 display screens, including
a new, high-tech rear seat media system. Three engines are offered including a new
straight-6 turbo diesel providing the most usable torque rated at 460 pound-feet at 1500RPM. The standard 5.3-liter V8 is rated at 355
horsepower and the hot 6.2-liter V8 takes it up to 420. All come with a 10-speed auto. The all-new chassis features an independent
rear suspension with optional air suspension and GM’s excellent Magnetic Ride Control
shocks. Chevy says the most impressive aspect of these
new SUVs is how well they handle. The street-inspired RST, off-road Z71, uplevel
Premier and ultra-luxurious High Country models are offered. Look for the new pair in mid-2020.

  1. When is GM going to redesign these same gauges theyve been used for years. It looks so old and the font is is like from 1980s

  2. Awaiting for Toyota's take on the large body-on frame SUV redesign, like the Sequoia. Interested in seeing what innovative and efficient drivetrains Toyota will produce. Even though gas prices are manageable at this point, we all know they won't stay that way for long.

  3. Sorry we spent all our money on the new Vet so here's the Ford Explorer rear and the Silverados front. And we'll update the inside but nothing to much.

  4. These big, gas guzzling dinosaurs make me realize why more and more people are going to Teslas and this is coming from someone that owned a few of these things.

  5. The biggest and most important change by far is the new rear independent suspension; the increase in cargo volume is much more because of that than exterior dimensions changes. It just took GM barely 18 years to catch up with Ford.

  6. Chevrolet’s new BOF SUVs are set to leapfrog their competitors in this segment. When it comes to interior storage capacity, efficiency, value, and quality, Chevrolet’s Suburban and Tahoe have their competitors beat out in every single category with their complete redesigns. This is an exciting chapter in the book of two of Chevrolet’s finest examples of American ingenuity. Can’t wait to check them out next year!

  7. Finally .. I’ve always sed the Tahoe was sized right compared to its rival .. with its new size it will definitely be a big big seller

  8. I don't know how people can stomach the price of fuel to use this as a every day driver. Then again I'm kinda poor. So…
