The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe dropped last December, ushering in a brand-new generation for the full-size SUV. The new model brings a host of changes to the nameplate, including new pricing that coincides with a revamped trim level cadence and new equipment. As such, we’re breaking down the important pricing changes in the following GM Authority Pricing Comparison.
At the base-level of the lineup, not much has changed, with both the 2WD LS and 2WD LT trims for the 2021 model year matching the price tags for the 2020 model year. However, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe shakes things up by making the RST and Z71 into their own trims. By comparison, the 2020 model year offered similar (but not identical) equipment via the RST and Z71 packages.
As such, for the sake of this comparison, we’ve listed pricing for the 2020 Tahoe LT with the RST package, plus pricing for the 2020 Tahoe LT with the Z71 package. The pricing for these two models are listed opposite the pricing for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe RST and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71, respectively.
Also, the High Country trim is a new addition to the lineup for the 2021 model year, hence pricing differences from the 2020 model year are not applicable.
|Trim Level||2021 Chevrolet Tahoe||2020 Chevrolet Tahoe||+/- 2021|
|Z71||Not available in 2WD||Not available in 2WD||N/A|
|High Country||$70,895||Not available for 2020||N/A|
|High Country||$73,895||Not available for 2020||N/A|
- All prices listed include destination fee
- 2020 Tahoe Z71 price is for Tahoe LT with Z71 package
- 2020 Tahoe RST price is for Tahoe LT with RST package
Some of the most interesting numbers here would be the price differences for the RST and Z71. Given the move to make these packages into full-fledged trims for 2021, the price increase aren’t unexpected, but are still interesting nonetheless. Stay tuned, as we’ll have more information on this posted in the near future.
As for specs, the naturally aspirated 5.3L L84 V8 is standard on LS, LT, Z71, RST, and Premier trims, while the naturally aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 is standard on the High Country. What’s more, GM is adding the 3.0L LM2 inline six-cylinder Duramax turbodiesel to the lineup for the 2021 model year. The GM 10-speed automatic transmission is standard across the line, while under the skin is the new GM T1 platform and a new independent multilink rear suspension.
