We recently had some dealer friends asking about an “illuminated mirror Chevrolet emblem” offered as an optional extra for the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban full-size SUVs. We’d never seen that option offered before, so we did some digging and found something interesting.
What we uncovered is that the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban will come with a unique side view mirror accessory that projects the Chevrolet emblem, offered as a dealer-installed option.
As explained by Chevrolet spokesman Mike Ofiara, this optional accessory snaps onto the underside of the side mirrors, acting as a puddle light the projects the Chevy Bow Tie emblem onto the pavement next to the door.
This is the first time Chevy has offered such a feature. Although the brand has offered puddle lamps in the past, they’ve never projected the Bow Tie logo.
According to dealer sources, GM Authority has learned that the accessory will be a $135 option for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban, and requires up-level mirrors with puddle lamps. The feature will be optional on LT, RST, and Z71 trim levels, and standard on Premier and High Country trims. The feature will not be available on the base-level LS.
For 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban LT, RST, and Z71 trim levels, the option also requires the Luxury Package, which includes the following:
- Driver Alert Package content
- HD Surround Vision
- Rear Pedestrian Alert
- Memory settings
- Outside heated power-adjustable, power-folding, body-color mirrors with driver-side auto-dimming and integrated turn signal indicators
- Power tilt and telescopic steering column
- Automatic heated steering wheel
- Second row outboard heated seats
- Second row power 60/40 split-folding bench seats
- Third row power 60/40 split-folding bench seats
This unique mirror light accessory is the third branded illumination feature for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban. The first two accessories include the Chevrolet script and Chevrolet logo in the tail lamps, while the second is an illuminated Chevrolet Bow Tie emblem (Glow Tie), which we have covered previously.
