Back in December of 2019, General Motors unveiled the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban, both of which rock ground-up overhauls and next-generation features. Part of the overhaul includes fresh styling, and now, GM Authority has learned that both full-sizers will offer the new look in conjunction with illuminated black Chevrolet badges.
The illuminated Black front Chevrolet Bow Tie emblem is marked with RPO code R88, and will be offered as an LPO (dealer-installed) option. The option also includes a Black non-illuminated rear Bow Tie emblem.
Note that this is a departure from the previous-generation models, which offered both Black and Gold illuminated Chevrolet Bow Tie emblems. Moving ahead with the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban, customers will now only be offered black emblems.
In addition, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban will also offered with Black nameplates. This option is tagged with the RPO code RIK, and is offered as an LPO (dealer-installed) extra. The nameplate is a script that spells out the model name (as in “Tahoe” or “Suburban,” depending on the model), and can be found on the liftgate and the front doors.
Finally, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban will also be offered with simple Black Chevrolet Bow Tie emblems, front and rear. These are tagged with RPO code SFZ, and are also offered as LPO (dealer-installed) extras.
Note that both the RST and the Z71 trim levels are equipped as standard with the Black nameplates (RIK) and Black Bow Tie emblems (SFZ).
