Late last year, Chevy trotted out an all-new version of the Tahoe alongside its larger Suburban sibling. The new model has a host of upgrades over its predecessor, but one thing that’s not significantly changing is the price.
If the current Chevrolet Tahoe, offered in three trim levels, is a bestseller in the full-size SUV segment, then a new generation that is bigger, better-equipped, more dynamic to drive, and comes in six distinct flavors should be a slam dunk.

Along with the new diesel engine, the 2021 Tahoe arrives with an appearance that borrows heavily from the Silverado’s controversial styling. That styling is on a much bigger vehicle, too – the wheelbase is 4.9 inches (124 millimeters) longer while the overall length increases by 6.7 inches (170 mm.). Cargo space behind the third row grows 66 percent over the current model. Pair that extra length with an all-new multi-link, independent rear suspension, and passengers should have plenty of room.
If big is better, then the redesigned 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe betters what it’s been. The full-size SUV expands in length, cargo room, and third-row passenger room to seat up to eight passengers in comfort (or nine in less comfort in fleet and base LS models), abetted by a softer suspension setup.
A familiar duo of V-8 engines power the 2021 Tahoe, but are now paired with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive is optional, as is a forthcoming 277-horsepower 3.0-liter inline-6 turbodiesel that should pick up highway fuel economy where the bigger Tahoe has fallen off. The big 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s ride on a new independent rear suspension with available adaptive dampers and a four-corner air suspension.
