2021 Chevrolet Suburban: PREVIEW, PRICING, RELEASE DATE

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - December 13, 2019

Model Preview

The Chevy Suburban went through its last redesign in 2015, making it only six model years old. In most cases, this is relatively young for the class, but its quick-changing competition has forced the automaker to expedite things and unveil the redesigned 2021 Suburban.

On the outside, the 2021 Chevy Suburban will boast a brand-new look but will retain the rugged, upright silhouette is has had for decades. Upfront, the 2021 Suburban will take on a brand-new Silverado-inspired look with a bold dual-port grille, C-shape LED signature lighting, thin LED headlights, a new hood, and more. Buyers will also notice a unique nose on the front of Z71 models that’ll enhance its approach angle for off-road driving. The 2021 Suburban’s backside will gain LED taillights with new L-shaped light tubes, a chrome applique between the taillights, and a smoother rear bumper.

In terms of size, the 2021 ‘Burban will grow 1.3 inches to 225.7 inches long. Its wheelbase will inflate by 4.1 inches to 134.1.

Inside, the new Suburban’s interior will go through a significant softening with a clean instrument panel design that includes limited buttons and knobs, better-hidden HVAC vents, premium upholstery, a floating 10-inch standard infotainment screen, and a standard 4.2-inch color driver-information display. Optionally, buyers can add an 8-inch gauge cluster screen, a 15-inch head-up display, and a rear-seat entertainment package with dual 12.6-inch headrest-mounted screens. As before, Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto will come standard. On LT and higher trims, a wireless charging pad with cooler to keep your device from pausing its charge due to overheating comes standard.

With its larger body and longer wheelbase, the 2021 Suburban’s cabin also boasts more room. Second- and third-row legroom will grow by 2.2 and 2.3 inches, respectively, to 42 and 36.7 inches. Cargo room with the third row upright will jump by 1.8 cubic feet to 41.1 cubes, and max cargo room will increase by a whopping 23 cubes to 144.7 cubic feet.

Under its hood, the redesigned Suburban will continue with its standard 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V8 and optional 420-hp 6.2-liter V8. New for 2021 will be a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 with 277 hp and 460 pound-feet of torque. This torquey diesel engine will not only boost towing, but it will also deliver the highest fuel economy in the segment, according to Chevy.

Air Ride Adaptive Suspension will be available on High Country and Z71 models. This system will deliver automatic load leveling and up to 4 inches of ride height adjustment. When heading off-road, the driver can also get an extra inch of ground clearance at low speeds and when in 4WD HI or 4WD LO.

The 2021 Suburban will gain standard automatic emergency braking, which is an option on the base LS trim in today’s model. It will also have available forward-collision alert, following-distance indicator, front-pedestrian braking, rear park assist, automatic high-beam headlights, hitch guidance, a 360-degree camera, lane-change alert, lane-keep assist, and more.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2021 Chevy Suburban will arrive in mid-2020.

Official pricing is not available yet, but we expect at least a small increase relative to the current model’s MSRP, which ranges from $52,995 to $68,795 (destination fees included). With the new range-topping Z71 and High Country trims, we could see a significant increase at the top end of the pricing range.

This full-size SUV will compete with the GMC Yukon XL, Ford Expedition, and Toyota Sequoia.
