General Motors officially announced the arrival of the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban in Mexico. The two full-size SUVs will become available in the Mexican market during the third quarter of this year, a few weeks after arriving at U.S. dealerships.
Having made their world debut on December 10, 2019 in Detroit, the new 2021 Tahoe and Suburban were completely redesigned to offer class-leading interior room and cargo capacity, as well as innovative technologies and major structural changes that promise the best driving dynamics in their segment. In addition, these utility vehicles are now longer and slightly wider to meet market demands.
“We took the best of Tahoe and Suburban, what characterizes and defines them, and redesigned it, bringing their legacy to a new era,” said Marketing Manager of Chevrolet in Mexico, Adriana Schütte, in a press release. “Our customers view these SUVs as a benchmark of luxury, technology, comfort and space, in addition to their design and dominant presence,” she added.
In Mexico, the new-generation 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will offer various trim levels with their own style and unique capabilities, including the luxurious High Country and the sporty Rally Sport Truck (RST). The rest of the range will be made up of the LS, LT and Premier versions, but, unlike the United States and Canada, GM has not yet confirmed the inclusion of the Z71 off-road variant in the Mexican market.
Powertrain choices will include the standard 355-horsepower 5.3L L84 V8 engine and the 420-horsepower 6.2L L87 V8 – exclusive to the High Country trim level – but the Duramax turbo-diesel 3.0L LM2 I6 won’t be offered in Mexico. In addition, all models will use the GM 10-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift technology, manufactured at the GM Silao Complex in the state of Guanajuato in central Mexico.
The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban are expected to arrive in Mexican dealerships in late summer, when full details on equipment and pricing will be revealed. As we recently reported, production of both models will soon begin at the GM Arlington plant in Texas – the only facility where they are produced for all the international markets in which they are sold.
