The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe are here, dropping cover in a joint debut event just last month. These next-generation vehicles feature fresh styling, both inside and out, as well as new dimensions and sizing, and a plethora of modern technology to boot. Among the new features on offer is a rear-seat media system, which Chevy describes as “the most advanced and capable [rear-seat media system] in the full-size SUV segment.” Now, we’re taking a closer look at what it has to offer in the following GM Authority Feature Spotlight.
The main draw of the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe’s new rear-seat media system are the dual 12.6-inch screens, which are mounted to the back of the headrests of the first-row seats. Chevrolet says this positioning enables both second- and third-row passengers to view the screen content.
What’s more, each of the two rear-seat media screens can display their own unique content thanks to standalone connections for each individual screen. Alternatively, passengers can also share content between the two screens, and even mirror content from an Android phone.
Furthermore, the rear-seat media system in the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe enable passengers to share specific points of interest to the central infotainment screen up front. For example, if a passenger wants to stop at a favorite burger joint, she can send the point of interest to the screen up front so the driver can find it.
In total, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe offer upwards of five screens placed throughout the cabin. In addition to the dual 12.6-inch diagonal rear-seat LCD displays offered with the optional rear-seat media system, there’s also a standard 10-inch diagonal central color touchscreen in front, an optional 8-inch diagonal instrument cluster, and an optional 15-inch Head-up Display
Complementary tech features include a built-in Wi-Fi Hotspot with available 4G LTE data plan, Apple CarPlay support, Android Auto support, and several USB charge points. Running it all is the new Global B electrical architecture.
