GM will reveal the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban truck-based SUV on Dec 10th, 2019. These fully-redesigned big SUVs are reportedly based on the latest GM T1 truck architecture that also underpins the 2019+ Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500.
2021 Chevy Tahoe & Suburban
General Motors has been dominant in the full-size SUV segment for a long time. When you combine the Chevy, GMC, and Cadillac SUV sales – they dwarf any other manufacturer’s numbers in the United States.
The Chevy Suburban has been a continuous nameplate for nearly 85 years. It is the longest running vehicle brand name in the industry.
We currently do not have much more official information about these 2021 family haulers, but we have seen and reported on dozens of different prototypes that have been testing on public roads.
One thing is clear from the prototypes – they are riding on an independent rear suspension. This is a significant departure from the Tahoe and Suburban solid rear-axle truck-based design. The independent rear suspension should offer a more comfortable on-road ride, but how will it cope with towing a heavy trailer? These big SUVs must be rated to tow around 9,000 lbs to be competitive. A recent 2021 Cadillac Escalade prototype showed rear air suspension.
TFLtruck will bring all the latest official specs and information as we get it.
