General Motors introduced an all-new fifth generation for the Chevrolet Tahoe nameplate last December, offering three rows of seating for passengers and loads of cargo room. But while the latest 2021 Chevy Tahoe is only offered as a three-row model, what if there was an option to delete the third row?
The idea certainly isn’t without precedent. In fact, General Motors offered a third row delete option for the previous K2-generation Tahoe via the Tahoe Custom. Intended for customers looking for greater capability and practicality, the last-gen Chevy Tahoe Custom came with just two rows of seating, enhancing cargo room behind the second row by a massive 54 cubic feet, while also making it easier to pack more stuff into the SUV.
But there’s more to this story as well. As exclusively reported by our sister publication, Ford Authority, FoMoCo is about to introduce a new package for the Ford Expedition that deletes the third-row bench, most likely for the 2021 model year. The new package will be offered on the standard-length Expedition model, but not the extended-length Expedition Max.
With all that in mind, it may make sense to offer a third row delete option for the latest 2021 Chevy Tahoe.
As GM Authority has covered previously, the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe offers more cargo room overall compared to the previous-generation vehicle, including an extra 28.2 cubic-feet behind the first row, an extra 21 cubic-feet behind the second row, and an extra 10.2 cubic feet behind the third row. With a possible new third row delete option, customers will be able to maximize all that extra room and more easily fill the rear cargo hold with whatever they need.
So then, the question is this – should General Motors offer a third row delete option for the 2021 Chevy Tahoe? Let us know by voting in the poll below, and make sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevrolet Tahoe news, Chevrolet news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
