Testing of GM’s upcoming full-size SUVs, including the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, has increased over the past few weeks, and some of the prototypes have advanced closer to production. One tell-tale element of that is the replacement of placeholder lighting elements with production-intent headlight and tail-lights. Today, our spy managed to catch the 2020 Suburban testing with production lights front and back.
The headlights on the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban seem to resemble those on the SUV’s pickup truck counterpart – the 2019 Silverado. However, the Suburban’s lights seem to feature several unique design elements that set them apart from the pickup.
Though the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban prototype we caught up to is wearing heaps of camouflage meant to obfuscate the actual design of the vehicle, we can still make out that it will feature a similarly-adventurous lighting design as the all-new 2019 Silverado. We seem to be able to make out a thin headlight strip and the “boomerang” LED lighting signature, both of which are present and accounted for on the Silverado. The shapes lurking beneath the camo don’t seem to be exact replicas, but they certainly have a similarity.
In that regard, it would appear that Chevy will create a “family look” between the Silverado family as well as the Suburban and Tahoe that are derived from it.
Out back, the camouflage gets in the way of the taillights more than we’d like it to, making it more challenging to see the taillights lurking beneath. However, we would not be surprised to see the rear lights take on a similar signature as the Silverado.
We should note that anything we see on the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will also be present on the 2020 Tahoe, since the former is a longer variant of the latter.
Expect the all-new Suburban and Tahoe to be announced very soon, and go on sale by the end of the 2019 calendar year as 2020 model year vehicles.
