General Motors introduced brand-new generations for the Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban nameplates in a joint debut late last year in Detroit. Re-engineered and redesigned from the ground up, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban offer a host of innovative features and new technology. Now, GM engineers and designers talk about some of these features and technology in the following brief video.
Clocking in at a little over three minutes, 30 seconds, the video doesn’t go too in-depth on the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban, but it does a decent job providing an overview of some of the highlights.
First up is the available Power Sliding Center Console, which slides back and forth a full 10 inches between the first-row seats to provide versatile storage solutions. For example, sliding the console rearwards reveals a hidden storage compartment that’s perfect for smaller items, while also providing two additional cup holders for second-row customers.
Speaking of those seated in back, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban offer more rear legroom than the outgoing models, including an extra 2.3 inches of second-row legroom and an extra 2.2 inches of third-row legroom in the Suburban, and an extra 3 inches of second-row legroom and an impressive 10.1 inches of extra third-row legroom in the Tahoe.
What’s more, these gains aren’t the result of massive increases to exterior dimensions, with the 2021 Chevy Tahoe adding 6.8 inches in overall length compared to the 2020 model year, and the 2021 Chevy Suburban adding just 1.3 inches in overall length compared to the 2020 model year. Factor in the substantial gains to rear cargo room, including an extra 10.2 cubic-feet of space behind the third row in the Tahoe and an extra 16.2 cubic-feet of space behind the second row in the Suburban, and clearly, GM’s engineers and designers accomplished quite a bit with these next-gen vehicles.
The brief video highlights additional features that are sure to impress, such as the Rear Seat Media system and the available suspension offerings, so hit play to check them out for yourself.
