GM’s all-weather floor liners option for the new 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban has been hit with availability issues, GM Authority has learned. Vehicle orders that include the all-weather floor liners option are currently having the option removed from the order and repriced.
The availability issues have affected at least three LPO-level (dealer installed) equipment options, including All-weather floor liners, first and second rows (RPO code RIA), All-weather floor liners, first, second, and third rows (RPO code RIB), and the Interior Protection Package (RPO code RGH), which includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parenthesis):
- All-weather floor mats (VAV)
- All-weather cargo mat (CAV)
- All-weather floor liners, first, second, and third row (RIB)
The availability issues stem from COVID-19-related problems with the supplier. The issue has been ongoing since October.
General Motors is currently working to address the issue. In the meantime, 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban customers that ordered their vehicle with one of the optional equipment packages listed above will be offered new All-weather floor mats (VAV), which can be ordered as a replacement option.
As a reminder, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban are both all-new for the latest 2021 model year, debuting side-by-side on December 10th, 2019, in a special event in downtown Detroit. Both models ride on the all-new T1 platform, otherwise known as GMT-T1, which was designed specifically for pickup trucks and body-on-frame SUVs.
Both the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban are equipped with an independent multilink rear suspension that offers improved ride quality, steering response, and driver control. Engine options include the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Arlington, Texas.
