First unveiled in December 2019, the Chevrolet Tahoe was an exciting new version of a car that featured a lot of aesthetic, technological, and performance upgrades. For nearly three months, people were left wondering what it would actually cost to own one. Well, Chevrolet has finally been generous enough to release the pricing for all Tahoe trims for 2021.
The base-level Chevrolet Tahoe LS starts at $50,295. To put that in perspective, it comes about as approximately $1000 more expensive than the previous Tahoe LS. The same trend follows the LT trim, which will be $800 more expensive at $55,095. However, the Tahoe Premier will be less expensive than its previous iteration at $63,895, which is $100 less than the 2019 Tahoe Premier. All these price tags include destination fees.
Chevrolet dealerships have started taking pre-orders for the 2021 Tahoe, the deliveries expected to commence early in spring. Pre-orders are a go for LT, Z71, Premier, and High Country trims. Starting from March, LS and RST trims can also opt for pre-orders.
The new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is based on the tried-and-tested GM T1 platform. This gives the SUV a new independent multilink suspension for better handling and a more comfortable ride. The lower trims will have a 5.3L L84 V8 engine under the hood, providing 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Starting at the High Country trim, a more powerful naturally-aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 will provide 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Chevrolet has still not given up on its Duramax diesel engine. It is a turbocharged 3.0L LM2 inline-6 powertrain that provides 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. It will be available on all trims except the Z71. Only a single option for the transmission is provided: a GM 10-speed automatic that supports electronic shift.
The Chevrolet Tahoe has been a cornerstone for all American SUVs to inspire from. It has been a part of both the pop culture of America and integral to many Hollywood movie stunts. Now that a fresh update is underway, we expect it to perform much more competently without losing any of its charm or reliability in the process.
