8,300 Units Of 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Shipped So Far16
The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe brings a complete overhaul for the full-size SUV nameplate, dropping in as a fifth-generation vehicle. Production has been ongoing for the past few weeks, and now, GM Authority has learned that roughly 8,300 units of the vehicle have been shipped to dealers as of the end of last week.
The all-new Tahoe debuted back in December, and features a new architecture, an independent multilink rear suspension, fresh styling, a redesigned cabin, and a long list of technology features. The latest Tahoe also offers a new engine lineup with the addition of the turbodiesel 3.0L I6 LM2 Duramax, which has late availability. Check out our intel page (linked in first paragraph) for a complete list of changes, updates, and features.
Production kicked off June 26th at the GM Arlington Assembly facility in Texas. Production of the next-gen 2021 Chevrolet Suburban kicked off at the same facility yesterday, July 13th. GM started retooling efforts began in early May following the end of production of GM’s previous-generation full-size SUVs.
As we covered earlier in the month, units of the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe started rolling into dealers in July. Both the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban offer Adaptive Air Ride Suspension as an available extra for the off-road-oriented Z71 trim and range-topping High Country. Magnetic Ride Control is automatically added on both trims when opting for Air Ride suspension. However, on the Premier trim, Magnetic Ride control is standard, while Air Ride Adaptive Suspension is not offered.
The all-new 2021 Tahoe starts at $50,295 for the base-model LS, the same price as the previous model year. Above the LS trim is the LT starting at $55,095, followed by the Z71 (only offered with 4WD) at $60,495. The RST is $61,065, the Premier trim is $63,895, and the High Country is $70,895.

Good article Jonathan, always like your writings… I commented the other day, got a response from Luft or Lutz, typical GM guy reply, right out of top suite, he, they didn’t get it. Now, based on your info, one can’t get the Air Ride on the Premier, are you nuts! Whats the green-shade answer for this one? How ’bout being able to order Air Ride including Magnetic, on the LT, RST, with of course the 3.0.
Why not offer people what they want? That’s always been a top marketing priority in any marketing scheme… so tell Luft, Lutz, or Clutz, give the people what they want, GM will sell many more units at greater profit because people like to get just exactly what they want for their hard earned $70,000. Mary, are you listening?
It’s true. Look at the Bronco roll out yesterday. The lineup is so complete plus an option for the off-road Sasquatch package from base level and up. GM is frustrating. You can’t order a 1500 with a Z71 and a max tow or a max tow with skid plates or a Z71.
I think most buyers don’t look too far into what they’re getting but for those who know exactly what they want GM might simply not have the vehicle you want. At the price point that these things sell at I can’t blame someone for going elsewhere instead of compromising on their purchase.
A quick look at any GM forum reading though threads of why the adaptive cruise on their 2020 $80K Duramax doesn’t work should be enough of a hint that people assume these options when they pay this kind of money. Of course I can live without it but at the price point and with everyone else offering it it’s just not acceptable.
Thanks for reading, S. Kerby!
Happy to read news from Usa. I wait my order since march 2020, to repair my 2008 suburban….. may be an idea for your next subject (Europe is waiting from USA..)
Mary cannot come to the phone right now. She just discovered a new video game. And she has been playing it intensively for days. It’s called pong.
Again the Premier loses out on the air suspension but You will put it in the high country and in the off-road vehicle sometimes I don’t understand your marketing strategy
I see Chevy suv is being shipped what about the GMC Yukon Denil
Do you know when GMC Denial is being shippied. Order 1 May 18th
I ordered a Tahoe Z71 with the magnetic and air suspensions and the Navigation options. Any idea when they will build vehicles with those? I was was told they haven’t started building the vehicles with the power center console yet. Is that true?
GM always sells you what they want, not what we want!
When will the 2021 Z71s ship to California?
Who gave you all this information? June 26th ?? My Tahoe was built May 29th. Just arrived last night (August 27th) covered in bug dung, has been sitting at the plant awaiting shipment along with 10,000 others. 91 DAYS SHIPPING!! I’m 5 hours from Arlington!!!!!!! This bug crap doesn’t come off either. Headed to the body shop. Painting hood at least, if not more. What a way to treat a $70,000 product.
I got my info from the inventory manager at the dealership where I ordered my Tahoe. Since my original post, I was told the factory had given them a build date of 9/7 – 9/13. They are expecting to have it at the dealership available for me 2-3 weeks later. We are located in South Texas.
What about the GMC Yukon Denial’s
What about the GMC’S
I think GM hurt themselves by not offering the 6.2 in the RST or Z&!. Not crazy about the new look either. The front is not bad but the back is ugly…It has driven the price of the used RST;s up..
