General Motors is just hours away from unveiling full details on the next-gen 2021 Chevrolet Suburban, and now we have the very first images of the all-new SUV straight from the reveal event in Detroit.
The Chevrolet Suburban nameplate will celebrate its 85th anniversary in 2020, making it the longest-running nameplate in automotive history. The new 2021 model year ushers in a fresh 12th generation, which features all-new styling.
As we can see, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban comes with an all-new fascia design. The headlamps, grille section, and bumper are completely different from the previous model, with new C-shaped lighting signatures below horizontal forward-facing lamps. The aesthetic looks wider and more aggressive than before, and brings the new Suburban in line with the rest of the Chevrolet range.
The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban looks just as boxy as before from the side view, with loads of straight lines and chunky features. The stance is high, and the wheels are big. Black trim bits complement the large styling features, and roof rails can be seen along the upper edge of the vehicle.
In back, we find the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban sporting quad exhaust tips, while the upright taillamps stretch up towards the roofline. The rear end is just as boxy as before, while lower black trim finishes it off.
The reveal event also brought out a new 2021 Chevrolet Suburban High Country trim level. More details on this to follow.
In addition to revealing the new Chevrolet Suburban, GM is also unveiling the updated fifth-generation 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, which is closely related to the Suburban in terms of architecture and mechanicals. Both models will run GM’s all-new T1 vehicle platform, and will feature an independent rear suspension, which is a significant upgrade over the older models’ K2 architecture and solid rear axle with multi-link setup.
Stay tuned, as we’ll have all the official details posted soon. Until then, make sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevrolet Suburban news, Chevrolet news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
