2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban 5th Generation
With 85 years of continuous production, Suburban is considered the longest-running nameplate in automotive history, a trusted partner for customers who need maximum people and cargo space. While it’s sibling Tahoe is America’s best-selling full-size SUV, accounting for more than 25 percent of the segment.
The all-new Chevrolet’s full-size SUVs were subjected to a complete transformation, combining the strongest aspects of its new full-size truck architecture with entirely new systems tailored for the needs of today’s SUV drivers and passengers. In the fifth-generation 2021, Chevy Truck designers created an entirely new look for Tahoe and Suburban, with bolder stance and proportions
Both Tahoe and Suburban have been redesigned to be the ultimate SUVs – offering the most interior space of any SUV, exclusive technologies and features, and the best driving dynamics in the full-size segment.
Each has grown substantially in terms of usable space for customers, as we can see in the following tables, 66% more cargo room behind the third row for Tahoe, and 19% more maximum cargo space behind the first row for Suburban – both best in class:

As we mentioned before, Tahoe and Suburban are available in four trim levels; standard LS and uplevel LT trims form the basis of the lineup, with the additional trims providing more features, and carrying distinct personalities, namely the off-road-focused Z71 and the fully loaded Premier.
Chevrolet presented an entirely new, SUV-specific interior offering up to five display screens in total.
And for the first time, Tahoe and Suburban’s second-row seat can slide, adjusting approximately 254-mm forward or rearward. 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 the ease of loading and unloading.
The rear door openings for the Tahoe are also larger, enabled by the increase in wheelbase.
The all-new interior was specifically designed to take advantage of the class-leading space and technology features, with the ultimate environment for road trips. The environment is brighter thanks to expanded glass areas – including an available panoramic sunroof and more refined premium materials
In the Middle East, a 5.3L V-8 rated at 355 horsepower is standard on LS, LT, Z71, and Premier models. Both feature industry-first Dynamic Fuel Management technology, with more than 12 modes of cylinder deactivation that are designed to optimize engine efficiency across a broad range of driving conditions, including when towing a trailer.
Also Available for higher trims a 6.2L V8 offering a best-in-class 420 horsepower. While both engines are matched with a new 10-speed automatic transmission with electronic shift control.
The changes for the all-new Tahoe and Suburban also included a new architecture featuring an independent rear suspension
