    Kickstarting the fifth generation of America's favorite full-size SUV, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe received a complete redesign, with many of the previous problems being addressed. This traditional body-on-frame SUV is now a wonderful blend of comfort and capability that features impressive towing abilities, comfortable second and third-row seating, and plenty of cargo space to store your necessities. The 2021 Tahoe continues to offer two V8 engine options and adds an all-new turbo-diesel option for incredible efficiency. In addition, Chevy redesigned the Tahoe from top to bottom, giving the vehicle more interior space, an updated suspension for better ride comfort and handling, and innovative storage features.

    If you need a three-row SUV to transport your family, the Chevy Tahoe is definitely a top consideration. Chevy didn't skimp on technology either; the robust infotainment system ensures clear and crisp sound, whatever your music choice might be. The Tahoe also enjoys a plethora of safety features to ensure you and your passengers arrive at your destination safely and sound and help you sleep better at night. The 2021 Chevy Tahoe looks to be a delight all around.

  • Design

    For the first time in the history of the Tahoe, there is another choice in addition to the traditional V8 options. Drivers can now opt for a 3.0-liter diesel engine. And while the diesel option might not muster the horsepower of its V8 cousins, the torque matches even the more powerful 6.2-liter V8. The standard V8 is a 5.3-liter engine with 355 horsepower, while the available 6.2-liter option delivers 420 horsepower. The 5.3-liter engine is the most fuel-efficient gas engine, and you can expect to get around 16 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. However, the Duramax 3.0-liter turbo-diesel will garner you 21 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway.

    Upgraded Handling

    The Tahoe stacks up very well with the competition in the powertrain department. Push down on the accelerator, and the Tahoe sails over the road, with a satisfying rumble of the V8. The now-standard 10-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly; you hardly notice gear changes. Even the smaller V8 offers enough power to pass other vehicles without much effort.

    We all enjoy a comfortable ride and smooth handling, but that is sometimes compromised when driving a full-size SUV. This is not a problem with the Chevy Tahoe, thanks, in part, to the all-new independent rear suspension. The upgraded suspension better adapts to the road and keeps the Tahoe smoothly sailing along. The result is a ride that will surprise you.

    Safety You Can Count On

    All trims come equipped with safety features and driver's aids, but the standard Automatic Braking is one of the most important features. It works with Forward Collision Alert and will help reduce the severity of a collision, if not prevent it entirely. Even at speeds up to 50 mph, the system will detect when a collision is imminent and automatically apply the brakes.

  • Trims

    The LS is the base trim of the 2021 Tahoe, but it hardly seems like it with the number of features you get. The LS comes with standard goodies that include a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, an HD rear vision camera, and a 4.2-inch color driver information center. You also enjoy the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus system, which includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, and voice commands. Other features that come with the base model include a six-speaker audio system, 18-inch Bright Silver painted aluminum wheels, and body-colored heated outside mirrors. Nothing is more frustrating than mirrors that freeze up in the winter.

    The next step up is the LT trim, which includes all of the LS features plus a few added goodies. With the LS, you enjoy heated front seats, ten-way power front seats, and wireless charging, which eliminates the need to pull over and plug in when your smartphone is about to die. You also enjoy two-position driver's seat memory, which means you can let your friend borrow the Tahoe without losing that perfect seating position.

    Two New Performance Trims

    On the interior of the sporty RST trim, drivers and passengers will enjoy perforated leather-appointed seat trim, which also makes a massive difference in the overall look and feel of the interior. On the exterior, the RST trim enjoys black roof-mounted side rails and a sweet set of 22-inch bright machined high gloss black-painted wheels. It's a sharp-looking trim, to be sure.

    If you are planning on taking your Tahoe up to the lake for some weekend adventures, the off-road Z71 trim is a great option. The list of features included with this trim reads like a page from an off-road magazine. You will be king of the dusty trails with a heavy-duty air filter, skid plate, hill descent control, and red recovery hooks. The list doesn't stop there, and you also enjoy all-terrain tires, an Autotrac two-speed transfer case, and 20-inch wheels.

    A New Level of Luxury

    We can't say enough nice things about the Premier trim; it screams class and luxury. Let's start with the 12-way power seats, ensuring maximum comfort, heated second-row seats so that the passengers stay comfortable, and power tilt and telescoping steering wheel. You will also enjoy an upgraded audio system, connected navigation, and a heated steering wheel. Apparently, Chevy wants to make sure you are cozy in the winter. Safety features include lane change alert, lane keep assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.

    The High Country trim is new for 2021 and includes everything you could ever want in an SUV, plus a whole lot more. In a nutshell, you enjoy what other trims feature, plus a 15-inch multi-color heads-up display, rear pedestrian alert, and 22-inch sterling silver premium painted wheels with chrome inserts. This trim permits a truly premium experience.

  • Interior

    As you might have already guessed, the Tahoe boasts a big interior; we mean it can be measured in acres instead of feet. If you have avoided buying a three-row SUV because the third seats are notoriously cramped, the Tahoe will have you changing your mind. Thanks to both the roomy second and third row of seats, even adults can sit comfortably for long drives. The 2021 Tahoe offers 40 percent more legroom in the third row of seats compared to previous model years. That's a considerable increase.

    Added Cargo Space

    When shopping for a full-size SUV, it isn't a big surprise that they have ample storage, but the Tahoe will impress you in that category as well. The Tahoe boasts best-in-class cargo space, which means you don't have to leave anything behind when camping or taking a trip. To be more specific, the Tahoe boasts 122.9 cubic feet of cargo space, which is plenty of room to pack everything you need. So whether you are transporting passengers or hauling cargo, the Tahoe delivers with plenty of interior space.

    The available Power Sliding Center Console is an option certainly worth serious consideration. The power-operated center console automatically slides back as far as 10 inches to give you space to store items between the seats. There is even a hidden storage drawer to store valuables, like your smartphone or wallet. It is innovative features like this that make the Tahoe a popular choice.

    A Mobile Entertainment System

    If you have kids, keeping them occupied on long road trips is always a concern. But thanks to the available Rear-Seat Media System, long drives in the Tahoe will be something you look forward to instead of dreading. This is a genuinely groundbreaking feature that parents from all walks of life will enjoy. The system consists of two 12.6-inch screens mounted on the back of the first row of seats; this allows passengers in the second and third row to view the content. Better still, the screens are able to each display their own unique content, which helps eliminate arguments about what to play.

    In addition, passengers can share information between the two screens and can even pass information with the central infotainment screen up front. For example, if a passenger is hungry and wants to stop for a bite to eat, they can send information about an upcoming restaurant to the front screen. Lastly, the front touch screen is able to inform the driver about what media is showing in the back, so there is no need to worry about what is being watched.
