The 2021 Chevy Tahoe dropped cover in a joint debut with the 2021 Chevy Suburban back in December, ushering in brand-new generations for both SUV nameplates. Now, GM Authority has learned that dealers can order the latest Tahoe with more features as the next-gen model’s launch schedule progresses.
Previously, Phase 1 of the 2021 Chevy Tahoe launch schedule was focused on the start of production and delivering a rich mix of models to dealers. As such, ordering was limited to builds consisting of entry-level and well-equipped models. Only the LT, Z71, Premier, and High Country trim levels were available for order.
Now, Phase 2 of the launch schedule is underway, with the focus shifting over to volume. As such, all trim levels are now either available to order or are close to being available to order, including the LS trim and RST trim, neither of which were available to order during Phase 1.
What’s more, all packages for the 2021 Chevy Tahoe are available to order now as well, including Air Ride Adaptive Suspension and the Power-Sliding Console, both of which were not available to order prior to July 2nd.
The upcoming Phase 3 of the 2021 Tahoe launch schedule will include all packages, all time levels, and the new 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine option. We’ll have more details on the late availability of the new LM2 diesel engine dropping soon, so stay tuned.
As a reminder, 2021 Tahoe production began late in June. In addition to the LM2 diesel engine, the latest next-gen 2021 Chevy Tahoe also offers the naturally aspirated, gas-powered 5.3L V8 L84, and the naturally aspirated, gas-powered 6.2L V8 L87. All three engines connect to the GM Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. The new SUV rides on the all-new T1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Arlington, Texas.
