2021 Chevrolet Suburban Grows in Size and Features
Modern suspension, high tech, and more inches define the all-new SUV
General Motors has rolled out an all-new full-sized truck family numerous times through the decades, following a familiar pattern of light-duty pickup, followed by a heavy-duty pickup with more powerful engines and greater payload capacity, and ultimately full-sized SUVs. This time around, GM has shaken up its strategy, further distinguishing different vehicles built from a common platform.
The big news with the near-identical Tahoe and Suburban is their greater dimensions. These already large models have grown significantly in size. The Suburban stretched 1.7 inches. Consequently, the massive vehicle has more interior space than ever.
Another game-changer for the GM model is that the simple and antiquated, live-axle rear suspension has been scuttled in favor of a more modern independent suspension. This promises dividends in ride comfort and handling acumen, as well as third-row-seat room. A redesigned Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon are also expected to join the Tahoe/Suburban in 2020.
Beyond these dramatic changes, there are numerous updates throughout. Here is what we know so far.
Price range is estimated to be from $48,000 to $70,000. On-sale date is Summer 2020.
