The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban made their debut in December 2019. These vehicles come with fresh interior and exterior styling. Both 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban come with the latest versions of technologies; however, even the RST models of these cars lack the visible exhaust tips. Moreover, we wish that in the performance RST trims of 2021, Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban came with visible pipes, rather than the single tip body tucked pipes.
The treatment for both 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban presently relies on the trim and engine selection. By and large, single system and single outlet exhaust are available as standard in LS, LT, RST, and Z71. They are also available as optional only in Premier and High Country trims with turbodiesel Duramax 3.0L LMW I6 engine.
Similarly, GM removes the dual system and dual polished stainless steel tips when Premier and High Country models with Duramax 3.0L LM2 I6 engine is ordered. Also, the Dual system and dual polished stainless steel tips are unavailable in LS, LT, RST, and Z71. But, we do feel that both the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban RST and Tahoe RST should come with the visible exhaust pipes. Besides this, the adaptive suspension of the magnetic ride is stiff on rough road surfaces.
At the same time, we do appreciate the 5.3-liter L84 V8 standard engine in both the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban that deliver 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. We also love the 10-speed automatic transmission, 22″ wheels, black chrome & ice finish, and front fascias. But, we can never call this a bargain SUV because it begins at an MSRP of $52,000 and goes up to a range of $81,770.
Also, unfortunate is the additional $5000 cost for upgrading the vehicle to a 6.2-liter V-8 and 10-speed engine with automatic transmission. Furthermore, unlike its other standard models, 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban trims with this engine is suitable to only premium fuel. Aside from this, GM could have spent a little more time on designing the brakes and steering. The lack of last-minute touches has made both of these SUVs compete with other models like Ford Expedition Max and Nissan Armada.
Therefore, we do love the optional and treatment offered by GM for both 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban. However, we wish that the RST models of these vehicles came visible exhaust. Besides this, GM could have added the Single system with single-outlet exhaust as standard in higher variants like Premier and High Country.
GM could also have made the Dual system and dual polished stainless steel tips available in the LS, LT, RST, and Z71 versions. Lastly, we wish that the Dual system and dual polished stainless steel tips weren’t removed when the Duramax 3.0L LM2 I6 engine was installed in the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban Premier and High Country trims. Also, as mentioned before, GM could have improved the brakes and steering of these SUVs, as well as decreased its price so that it could compete better.
