The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is designed to be versatile, adapting to a variety of different environments and owner needs. Buyers can enhance the next-generation SUV’s versatility even further by adding in the Air Ride Adaptive Suspension option, which is offered on High Country and Z71 trim levels. Now, we’re getting a look at how the 2021 Tahoe air suspension works in the following Chevrolet advertisement video.
The video is brief, clocking in at just 51 seconds in length, but does well to illustrate how the 2021 Tahoe air suspension operates.
As we covered previously, there are four modes for the 2021 Tahoe air suspension system, each of which modifies the vehicle ride height to suit the conditions, with a maximum difference up to four inches. The system is officially known as Air Ride Adaptive Suspension.
The Maximum Ground Clearance setting raises the Tahoe to help it navigate the trails without issue, easily lifting the vehicle with the turn of a knob. Setting it back down to normal ride height is equally as easy – just twist the knob, and the suspension will settle back down to the standard ride height.
What’s more, the 2021 Tahoe air suspension will automatically lower the ride height on the highway to improve fuel efficiency.
The suspension is useful for other things too. For example, owners can raise the suspension to make it easier to align with a trailer hitch, or lower the suspension to ease passenger ingress and egress. What’s more, the suspension features automatic load leveling at all four corners.
As mentioned above, the 2021 Tahoe air suspension system is offered on High Country and Z71 trim levels. The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is built on the GM T1 vehicle architecture, and features a new independent multilink rear suspension design.
The 2021 Tahoe air suspension system will see late availability, with an anticipated arrival later this year.
