The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is all-new. This is a huge deal for the full-size SUV, as the last fully redesigned Tahoe came in 2015. The full-size SUV segment isn’t what it used to be, but herculean options like the Tahoe are still some of the ultimate vehicles on the road.
It would take a long, long time to go over everything that’s new with the Tahoe. Instead, the quick rundown includes a new body-on-frame architecture that brings a longer wheelbase. It receives an independent rear suspension setup that, with the help of the longer wheelbase, improves third-row leg room and cargo capacity.
When it comes to powertrains, the Tahoe still offers a few V8 engines, but they've been upgraded with a dynamic fuel management system. Also, a new turbodiesel motor has been added to the lineup. That’s certainly unique for the class and should be a worthy upgrade for consumers that tow often.
All the changes help the Tahoe take on the Ford Expedition and the Nissan Armada, which are two of the newer SUVs in the class.
