Earlier in the year, we posted a GM Authority exclusive rendering of a two-door 2021 Chevy Tahoe. Now, we’re once again breaking out our digital crayon set to bring you this – a two-door 2021 Chevy Tahoe Z71.
Before we launch into this, we should probably give the standard disclaimer: for now, there’s no indication that General Motors will actually produce a two-door 2021 Chevy Tahoe, Z71 or otherwise. As such, this particular rendering was done just for fun to see what such a thing might look like.
With that covered, let’s dive right in.
Compared to the rest of the 2021 Chevy Tahoe lineup, the Z71 trim level gets a distinctly off-roader spin. That includes a revised exterior design, with a new front fascia treatment that gives the Tahoe a bold, rough-and-ready aesthetic. A red-and-silver Z71 badge is mounted in the center dividing bar of the grille next to a black Bow Tie badge mounted front and center, and a prominent skid plate is mounted in the lower bumper between a set of red tow hooks.
The rest of the revised 2021 Chevy Tahoe fascia is present and accounted for, including thin upper lighting elements and C-shaped lighting signatures.
Unfortunately, the Z71’s unique front fascia prevents it from offering the new 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine option, as we’ve covered previously. However, the trade-off is that it affords the SUV a higher approach angle, which helps with regard to the vehicle’s off-road capability.
Speaking of which, our two-door Chevy Tahoe Z71 also comes with the usual 20-inch wheels, which are once again wrapped in all-terrain tires. This wheel-and-tire combo looks great under the fenders of the off-road-oriented SUV, and play well with the Z71’s black and black chrome accents.
The profile view also does well to show off our rendering’s two-door body configuration, with the standard model’s fin-shaped C-pillar moved forward to rest against the front doors. The rear glass section is then extended rearwards all the way to the hatch.
Further Z71 gear include standard 4WD, a two-speed transfer case, and Hill Descent Control.
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe Z71 was introduced last December, ushering in a brand-new fifth generation with a complete overhaul (re-engineering and redesign) for the SUV nameplate. In addition to a new look and fresh interior layout, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe also features a new underlying architecture, namely the GM T1 platform. Production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Arlington, Texas.
