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.
