At the end of this week, we’ll be spending a full day with the 2021 Chevy Tahoe – the all-new, full-size SUV built on the GM T1 platform. Our big boy will be the range-topping High Country model powered by the naturally-aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 engine (part of the EcoTec3 engine family) rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque mated to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission. Two-wheel-drive is standard, but our tester features the optional 4WD system.
Our Tahoe test unit is coated in the Iridescent Pearl Tricoat hue – a $995 option. Inside, the model has Jet Black/Mocha seats with Perforated leather-appointed seat trim.
Other options on the 2021 Chevy Tahoe include the Air Ride Adaptive Suspension Package, which automatically includes the Magnetic Ride Control suspension system as well as the Maximum Trailering Package that enables this large SUV to tow up to 8,100 pounds. Our tester also features the panoramic, dual-pane, tilt-sliding sunroof.
The base price of a 2021 Chevy Tahoe is $50,295, including the $1,295 destination charge. The range-topping High Country 4WD starts at $73,895, and our tester – with all options includes – stickers at $77,855.
We will have the 2021 Chevy Tahoe High Country for a relatively short 24 hours, where we’ll be conducting our first drive. In doing so, we’ll be looking at the overall quality, fit and finish as well as initial driving and riding impressions. So if you would like to know more about this truck beyond the spec sheet, ask your questions in the comments section, and we’ll reply starting on Thursday (September 17th) afternoon as part of the GM Authority interactive review.
Ready…. set… go!
