Like the bigger Suburban, the 2021 Tahoe isn't just a Silverado pickup truck with a longer roof.
The new model finally uses an independent rear suspension, which promises significant improvements in ride comfort, handling capabilities, and third-row room.
The SUV has grown a massive 6.7 inches longer, which translates into more rear legroom, and better separates it from the already-roomy Traverse SUV.
A 5.3-liter V8 is standard, with a 6.2-liter V8 and a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder diesel also available.
All use a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive optional.
The interior is styled like the upscale SUV that it is, rather than a copy of the Silverado.
Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection are standard, but blind spot warning is optional.
