That price is for the two-wheel-drive base model Suburban, with four-wheel-drive adding $3,000 to the price of the SUV. The next best-equipped trim level, the LT, starts at $57,795, while the RST and Z71 models have been priced from $61,095 and $63,195, respectively.
Moving into the upper echelon of the range, the Chevrolet Suburban Premier will be priced from $66,595, while the range-topping, cream of the crop High Country will bump the price to $73,595. That means a four-wheel-drive Suburban High Country would start at a rather significant $76,595. That said, the Suburban remains great value for 2021, with the base model not costing a penny more than the outgoing model.
As a reminder, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban rides on the new GM T1 vehicle platform which features independent multilink rear suspension for superior comfort and handling. Every Suburban except for the High Country will come standard with Chevy’s naturally aspirated 5.3L L84 V8 engine, which is good for 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The High Country, meanwhile, comes standard with the more robust naturally aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 engine, offering up 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
GM is also offering its turbodiesel 3.0L LM2 inline six-cylinder Duramax engine in the 2021 Suburban, which produces 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The engine will not be available until this fall, however, so pricing is not yet available for diesel models. The oil burner will be offered on all Suburban trim levels with the exception of the Z71. All three available engines are paired with the GM 10-speed automatic transmission in the Suburban.
The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban will arrive at dealers later this year. The SUV will be built alongside GM’s other T1 based full-size SUVs at its Arlington Assembly plant in Texas.
